Another great review

Louis Vitela loves himself some pood over at ComicCritique, giving us 5 out of 5 stars and saying:

"You’re a better comic geek than I if you can finish Pood #1 in one sitting. Anyway, better to stretch it out and let the enjoyment linger a while... (pood) pushes the envelope so far that it becomes a promise of what comics can be and an always-welcome reminder that there is no limit to the kinds of stories comics can be used to tell."

"If I had a coffee table, Pood would be on it! I hope they make some more issues. With four or five of these things, I could have the coolest wallpaper on earth."

Captive Audience

We’re all more than familiar with mainstream action and arthouse melodrama that beats you over the head with its simplistic conflict or instinctive pessimism. It’s too easy to overlook beating the major joints or vital organs too! The injury that befalls real-life non-super people, and the miseries of those with something genuine to complain about, are explored in this play I posted about at

And if you’re anywhere near Brooklyn now through May 8 you should stop worrying about Iron Man 2’s opening-week grosses and take a look (in fact, the playwright is married to Iron Man: Legacy scribe and Action Philosophers/Comic Book Comics authority Fred Van Lente so let him worry about it). You miss this night of riveting, thoughtful theatre on pain of…well, let them show you:
