There’s always been a very close relationship between gaming and comics, and while this site doesn’t cover a lot of gaming stuff (we probably should), we can at least throw the gamers a bone with this week’s Friday Sing-along from Kirby Krackle.  With E3 wrapping up, the comic book rock band takes a look at the early 64-bit gaming world.

I’m digging Kirby Krackle and the fact that they are from the comic book industry. So once again, another song from the group. Yes, you did hear those lyrics right: Hey there Skrull Girl, How’s the shape shiftin? I imagine you would have some esteem issues Cause you’re always changing, all the damn time Pick a body type, I’ll tell you what turns me on I could think of a dozen ways that I’d like to see you mainly naked but always with the chin I know it’s wrinkly, but I kinda like it So don’t you ever, never, ever,

Paul Pope

Paul Pope thinks fight sequences are vexed by page limits.  In Battle Boy, Pope is devoting about 50 pages to a single fight sequence. In Batman Year 100, I had room for a couple of long fight sequences, but I felt cramped even with 200 pages. This fight scene from BATTLING BOY alone is about 50 pages. It’s liberating to have no page restrictions. I wish Kirby could’ve had 50 pages for one fight scene, imagine what he would’ve done. via Pulp Hope

This brings me to… Yes, take the jump and see all the Darkseid incarnations.

DCFeaturedFinal CrisisGrant MorrisonReview

It has been a real struggle to write the reviews for Final Crisis. Every time I pick up the book, I get angry over what I am reading, but then after a while, my blood stops boiling and I give it a second, third, and more often than not, a fourth and fifth reading to come to some kind of understanding with what Morrison is trying to accomplish. I see and respect what he is doing, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.
