    Has anyone else read these comics. If you haven't, do.

    They're High-larious and unbelievably original.

    Some of you may have heard of the movie adaptation that's coming out next month.

    I've seen the posters for it, and my girlfriend loves one of the character's hair-styles, so I'll be dragged to it.

    I can't stand Michael Cera. Not sure why, I just don't like him.

    Neither do I, I think he's a pretty poor casting choice. In the comics the character is pretty... out there.

    Generally speaking Michael Cera plays characters who aren't.

    If you're a retro gamer you'll love it.

    Oho, I just bought the last two books and finished them as soon as I got home from the mall. SO good. C: Nice to see another fan.

    Interestingly, I've just seen that the author of the books is doing a signing at Forbidden Planet in London. On my birthday.

    I didn't know it was based on comics. But I sure thought it was kind of wild when I saw the preview. I may have to look into this.

    And Banzai, I would suggest going, playing up the "it's my birthday" angle, and seeing what loot you can come back with.

    I think it's because you're tuned in to the fact that Michael has obviously signed a pact with Beelzebub to never age a day in his life. Of course, since these kinds of contracts are never free of fine print, Michael forgot to ask to be dashingly handsome, and.... well....:rolleyes:
