My wife saw the Melissa & Doug Geometric Stacker Toddler Toy that our daughter has on Season 04 Episode 10 (“Inmates”) of AMC’s The Walking Dead! I’m so proud of her for spotting that! http://shar.es/FCDdp
“Niko Henrichon is one of the greatest living artists of graphic novels, and a book from him of this scope is a once-in-a-decade experience. I can’t wait for Darren Aronofsky’s film, but this Noah is very much its own story, one whose beauty would be just about impossible to translate to any medium but comics.”
-Brian K. Vaughan (Saga, Y: The Last Man, The Pride of Baghdad)

When famous science fiction heroes make the jump to children’s coloring books, usually the characters’ dignity is jettisoned in the process. But such was not the case with the 1983 Uncanny X-Men Super Activity Book. Indeed, this unheralded tome — in which Magneto builds a frightening “Alphabet Beast” — may very well be the most narratively challenging X-Men story ever written.
One day in the future, Barack Obama has a heart attack and dies.
He immediately goes to hell where the devil is waiting for him.
"I don’t know what to do here,"says the devil. "You are on my list, but I have no room for you. You definitely have to stay here, so I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’ve got a couple of folks here who weren’t quite as bad as you. I’ll let one of them go, but you have to take their place. I’ll even let YOU decide who leaves."
Obama thought that sounded pretty good, so the devil opened the door to the first room.
In it was Ted Kennedy and a large pool of water. Ted kept diving in, and surfacing, empty handed. Over, and over, and over he dived in and surfaced with nothing. Such was his fate in hell.
"No," Obama said. "I don’t think so. I’m not a good swimmer, and I don’t think I could do that all day long."
The devil led him to the door of the next room.
In it was Al Gore with a sledge-hammer and a room full of rocks. All he did was swing that hammer, time after time after time.
"No, this is no good; I’ve got this problem with my shoulder. I would be in constant agony if all I could do was break rocks all day," commented Obama.
The devil opened a third door. Through it, Obama saw Bill Clinton, lying on the bed, his arms tied over his head, and his legs restrained in a spread-eagle pose. Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky, doing what she does best.
Obama looked at this in shocked disbelief and finally said, “Yeah man, I can handle this.”
The devil smiled and said…
(This is priceless…)
"OK, Monica, you’re free to go."
