So I bought Trek Teens #1, and it is as ridiculously cynical and sloppily drawn as I could ever have hoped. Clearly made by male Trek fans for male Trek fans, it’s so focused on snarky meta commentary about the poor quality of the writing and flimsy plot structure of the comic/Trek as a whole that the completely earnest bitterness of the creators towards jocks, women, and the aloof, sensitive biker dudes they look up to only shines all the brighter.
McCoy—the skinny, wisecracking kid offering sage advice to the idiots around him only to score the winning touchdown (and the admiration of all those mysterious aliens, “women”)—serves as creator/reader stand-in and most poorly drawn character in the book. (He’s on the alternative cover and everything but I thought he was just some random dude drawn in last minute to make it look less like a Kirk/Spock slash fanzine.) People’s legs are regularly cut off by speech bubbles and motorcycles, a guy gets kicked so hard in the nuts that his legs are ripped completely out of their sockets, and though Spock is set up to be just as much of a fool as Kirk is he somehow manages to look cool and competently drawn in every panel even as the faces around him melt into putty. I got my $1.20’s worth of entertainment out of it, but definitely not in the way it was intended.
My Deep Space Nine necklace from Auberg Designs arrived today!
Yes, I’m that awful person who snatched it up~
It’s beautiful, and catches a lot of light! The quality is lovely - lightweight, but very solid, elegant well-cut edges that aren’t poking or scratchy. Gorgeous, I can’t wait to go somewhere in it. Worn with my Cardassian Union shirt, it is some perfect geek wear!
Are they selling fricking air wick freshmatics on DS9?
It’s an artifact, I suppose??
Where did all the trekkies go?
Here I am!
Cute art of Heather by Sasha? What more could I ask for.
Sasha drew me!!~*~*
And in case you were wondering… Yes, this “outfit” really does exist.
Have you ever wanted to feel nostalgic while wet and naked? Because that dream can now be a reality.
Lovingly molded by UK-based soapers Game Odour, we were shocked by how realistic these cartridge soaps looked in these photos. No really, we actually entertained the idea that they just sudsed-up some old SNES carts for what we can only imagine was “the most pointless deception ever concieved by human minds”.
I got really upset for a second because I thought those were real game cartridges ruined in water and soap.
