I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT ALL ALONG.
Happy new years from Faceplant! May your year be full of enough movies, video games, comics and books to drive a man insane. What? You want more than that in 2011? Food? Absolutely not! Get back to your computer screen and start searching for something awesome THIS INSTANT. Okay, well, you can read this first. See? Compromise is what 2011 is all about.
I was going to bust in the new year by doing something a little out of the ordinary for me: reviewing a movie. I’m not much of a movie watcher, but I figured a new year means to get into new things, so I plopped down in front of the tube and browsed my Netflicks ques for something worth reviewing. To make a long story short, I ended up turning off GI JOE about 22 percent of the way in, because it was awful. So instead I’m going to review Sam and Fuzzy, a long running comic by creative mastermind Sam Logan, which chronicles the adventures of a sociopathic bear-thingie, and the sad sack, weakling twig of a man who is stuck with him. Which is totally what GI JOE should have been like. (more…)

Spoilers ahoy! As many of you may know, I’ve been a rabid fan of comics and webcomics since way back when. I figure there’s always a hundred and fifty articles out there about great moments in video games, but not too many authors give comics the same treatment. Half the reason I write in this blog is because these comics have given me a lot of joy over the years, and as a poor, unwashed writer there isn’t too much I can do to support the authors that have really had an impact, either through their stories, action scenes, or blindside-plot twists, over the years. Ideally, I’d like to make this a semi-regular feature at Faceplant, showcasing five great moments from some of my favorite webcomics at a time. These are moments that have done wonderfully during the comic’s life, moments that stick with you long after the plot and characters have moved on to greener pastures.
This article is going to contain spoilers about the stories, plots, and actions in these webcomics! Read at your own risk! Unless, you know, you don’t care, and really need that extra push to decide which of these comics you should dive into.
