The Cipher 02/03/11: “Ziplock in the freezer like yo mama’s box of Zinfandel”

two men stand, one’s gotta go

created: In the truck with the windows down–why is he playing Beanie Sigel?

Black History Month piece. Long story short: Black History matters. Knocking it out in 350 words or less this month.

Cat Shit One looks great. Weird that they didn’t call it Apocalypse Meow, but I figure that name is both basically unknown and out of date, since CSO isn’t in Vietnam.

one falls down to the ground

consumed: I broke a tooth! Not even a cool chip on the front teeth that gives me roguish charm, just a straight up broken tooth that no one will see until it gets infected and kills me in my sleep. Did y’all know there are dentists that are closed Fridays? Anyway, in and out this week, cause I got so much trouble on my mind. Next week will be back to biz as usual.

The Realist is genuinely amazing.

Jeff Parker and Erika Moen’s Bucko is off to a good start.

Kyle Baker interview

Jog talking Ditko is great. Ditko’s a guy I love for Amazing Spider-Man more than anything else. I need to branch out into his other work sometime soon.

This Archaia book Cyclops, by Matz & Luc Jacamon, caught my eye. Anyone read it? Or The Killer? They sound ill, but you know, floppies these days. I’d rather cop trades or digitally, but that brings an entirely different set of problems (space, mainly).

Money Making Jam Boys mixtape! Black Thought, Dice Raw, Truck North, Sugar Tongue Slim, and PORN? I’m there.

-For everyone interested in Catherine, and I hope that’s everyone here, the demo is live on the Japanese PSN on PS3. This is a good tutorial to get your free account made. I downloaded it on Sunday (I think?), but haven’t found time to play it yet, ugh. This weekend fa sho.

Persona 3 Portable is on sale on PSN right now. Twenny bucks. Looks like P3P slipped out of stock (out of print?) on Amazon, too, so get on that if you haven’t.

-Shaky Kane and David Hine’s Bulletproof Coffin is finally complete on Comixology. Two bucks each? I think? Click.

-I like this post about Egypt.

-I really enjoyed this look at Memphis Bleek’s career. At the same time, I dunno if I’m gonna download the mixtape.

This bit about the future of bandes dessinĂ©es in the US was neat. My only request for the future of BD over here is “more please.”

Jack Davis Flickr motherlode.

-I’ve been playing Final Fantasy Tactics and NBA 2k11 exclusively. Gotta get back to P3P in a couple weeks and see about writing a little bit.

-When Sean Witzke talks about movies, you just need to sit and listen.

-I’ve been bumping Yelawolf’s Trunk Muzik 0-60 all morning. It’s good. I wish the “I Wish” remix was on it, but hey, it’s still ill. And I know I talked about that joint a couple weeks ago, but it sticks with me.

-“Au contraire mon frere one pure pain giver/ Don’t ingest this, it might cause corrosion of the liver”

one walks down to the road

David: Rap music and britpop i guess
Esther: Whatever comics people read when they go on vacation!
Gavin: Azrael 17, Secret Six 30, Time Masters Vanishing Point 6, Invincible 77, Irredeemable 22, Daken Dark Wolverine 5, Deadpool & Cable 26, Hulk 29, Ozma Of Oz 4, She-Hulks 4, Ultimate Comics Thor 4

  1. I bought the first volume of The Killer a few months back, and really dug it. I’ve yet to buy the second one, though. You can buy the first volume digitally, for $6.99 here. It’s a difficult book to describe, but in a nutshell, it’s about a hitman that screws up a job after being cooped up for too long, and is forced to go on vacation to get his head on straight. From there, things just continue to spiral out of control. The plot’s nothing special, but it’s interesting to get inside the head of a character that’s so unsympathetic, and the art’s really interesting, especially the scenes that take place in the jungle.

    I usually use this little scene to sell people on it, since I think it does a good job getting across the tone of the book.

  2. Hrm, looks like my links didn’t work. Anyhow, The Killer’s available through Graphic.ly for $6.99, and here’s the scan I was trying to post: http://i56.tinypic.com/67tv9x.jpg

  3. @Munch: Hey, repost your link, it doesn’t look like it came through. And thanks for the tip.

    edit: wow, beat me to it.

  4. If it makes you feel any better, David, I downloaded the Catherine demo on last Thursday, and I haven’t played it yet either. Definitely need to check it out ASAP.

  5. Pill’s verse kills it.

  6. Wow $7 for the Killer is a fantastic deal.

    I already own it but damn good deal.

  7. Oh, and also Archaia did buy one get one free at their booth at Wondercon last year, David. May want to pick the Killer HCs then.

    I hope they do B1G1 free again, I want to get Dapper Men and Killer Vol 3.

  8. Gavok: What did you think of DP and Cable?
