Sound like Alberta to me, Canadian southerners and bordering with the Rockies

As usual, I really dig these reviews. It's always a pleasure to watch these when I get up in the morning. The shot of the tons and tons of skeletons was surprisingly chilling for a comic like this.

Also, it is CRAZY how much I love that song from Suspiria. :-D

Pat Rick said...

Actually, I want to clarify something about why the Canadians in this comic all look like southerners. The province of Calgary has a history of cowboys, ranches and rodeos, even hosting an event called the Calgary Stampede, which a ten day event they billed as the 'Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth'. One of the problems in Calgary involve some bigotry, but I don't know too much aside from that.

Keep in mind, part of this is from my own research and knowledge given to me from a Canadian comic book writer Krazy Krow (his alias).

I can imagine the different reactions Brad and Lloyd would have when reading the comic! If I was in a situation where I wake up surrounded by cats, I either stay still, or just run for my life! Yes, allergies!

Tyler said...

Oh those crazy cat ladies. There's got to be a meme about cats in blenders somewhere here

I fully agree with you on this one
dog meat is so much better

Awesome review as usual.
The Suspiria soundtrack by Goblin elevates the creepiness perfectly.

I posted in a previous video a request for Aquaman vol.1 the Trench, but on second thought the Brave and the Bold vol.2 #32 one shot with Aquaman and Etrigan fighting a Lovecraftian invasion (ANNUALLY!) fits perfectly with the Longbox.

It helps that it's written by a certain J. Michael Straczynski and has quite possibly the best artistic work of Jesus Saiz.

The Longbox continues to deliver.
Much earned Kudos!

"Remember to always watch what you eat" So far we've had cat-soup and uzumaki mushrooms. What new gastronomic terrors have you planned for us?

Nice review. Best longbox on demand review yet. For this year

Didn't know anything about this because this one definitely sounds like my cup of tea. I think both DC and Marvel should dive into the Horror genre for their superhero titles besides Marvel Zombies I mean.

Teen Titans has done a lot of horror, hasn't it?

@Pat Rick Calgary is a city not a province, it's the capital of the province of Alberta

Donna McKay said...

Hmm. Probably shouldn't have watched this one just before supper.

Megan said...

Clearly, Polly is making some Mew Goo Gai Pan.

Moarte certainly was catty in this review. He gave me paws.

OK, all joking aside, this does sound like hissing good fun!

Not sure if this has been asked but I have been meaning to want to. I remember the phrase that you mentioned quoted by Stan Lee. "Every comic is someone's first".

What was your first Linkara? Was it a good or bad experience looking back on it?

Thanks in advance should you respond to this or point out that you already have shown or told it.

Ozaline said...

@Unknown, No Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta, Calgary is sometimes called the Buisness Capital since a lot of the oil companies are based out there, so that might be what you're thinking of.

Way back when when Linkara reviewed that Batman Zellers comic, the rodeo was probably at the Calgary Stampede, or the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonoton.

But I do agree this comic likely takes place on the Alberta side of the Rocky Mountains...

Talvrae said...

@Ozaline Yes i admit my mistakes i realised it a few minutes later when looking a bit on the things my bad. I,m from qu├ębec, and we kinda hear more about Calgary than Edmonton. My bad

Moarte, making the wood Canada sound pretty threatening
