too!, Frenzy wants to read

(no subject)

This is a stand-alone gag-strip week, so we're back to the M-W-F schedule. Tune in tomorrow for a penis.

To the left is Robot Heroes Bonecrusher. Bonecrusher is one of those Movie designs, like Frenzy, who doesn't take well to the Robot Heroes aesthetic. Frenzy's kinda weird with a big open-mouth grin on him, and Bonecrusher's more of the same. When I picture Bonecrusher, he's mostly two giant angry eyes, with various pointy shards forming his angry brow. Giving him a nose and a mouth makes him look Not Like Bonecrusher. On top of that, he's got a sneer, which seems to fly in the face of his "I hate everything" characterization. Nothing should give him joy.

He's also the only Robot Heroes figure so far that isn't intended to stand on just his two legs. He needs to lean on his left arm. Hrm.

It's too bad. I really like Bonecrusher, but this interpretation ain't doin' it for me.

The Colbert Report ceased production during the strike because Stephen Colbert allegedly can't ad-lib? Tinsley, you embarrass yourself.

I know, I know. Breaking news.
