I guess I'll just make this the Pride of Baghdad thread.
Graphic novel by Brian Vaughan. You may have heard of him. It's "inspired" by a news story about some lions that escaped the Baghdad Zoo during the invasion of Iraq by the United States et. al. in 2003.
Nothing about Runaways or The Escapists, though.
Edit: Wow. I knew there was going to be a Y: The Last Man movie, but I didn't realize Vaughan was writing it. One for Ex Machina too.
There's a discussion about the end of Y: The Last Man with fans. Its pretty interesting, and not too long.
That woman's voice bothers me....
you should hear diane rhem (who i love). her voice, like many of NPRs talent, takes a little time to get used to. she has some terrible voice-debilitating disease.
anyway i heard this interview on NPR today. it was pretty much what you would expect. but it got me interested in this book.
She said "...people are always so surprised when I tell them Blade Runner is one of my favorite films of all time..."
It was awesome.

There are a couple things that bother me (mostly some linguistic issues)
[spoiler:e440a30abc]Like Zill making that comment about how "you don't look a gift horse in the mouth, you eat it" and then didn't recognize horses when they ran into some[/spoiler:e440a30abc]
But overall it's good.
[realspoiler:e440a30abc]Man, the ending was sad. I mean, I was expecting that, mostly because Neal Conan hinted at it in that interview (and Brian Vaughan made a comment to the effect of "shut up you idiot, other people haven't read it", only much more politely), but I was expecting Ali to survive if nothing else. I guess if I had read the news story I would've known better.[/realspoiler:e440a30abc]
I'm buying this on this word.
You have set the bar above pretty much anything I've bought in a long while.
If you have exaggerated in anyway I will make it my mission in life to burn everything you have ever loved and make you wish for the end long before it is gifted to you.
But if it is that good I'll send you a very nice wedding present.
Whoa, seriously. Amazon, here I come!
I'll take ten!
[spoiler:c306f93b6e]my girlfriend cried after reading it, and she's not that sentimental[/spoiler:c306f93b6e]
well worth the $20
Way to miss the fucking point.
Also, I agree that this book was good but I don't think it was the second coming like everybody else thought it was. Still a great book though.
You need the love of human contact.
(he is graizur, duck)
He was mean for no reason. I suggested he take a chill pill. Chill pills are human contact. It's late. early. Have not slept. Since 7pm yesterday when I woke up.
So the guy who wakes up at 7pm is telling me I need human contact? Stop fucking trolling.
I wasn't mean for no reason, you completely missed the point of the book and I informed you as such. Also, you're on the PA forums.
I didn't really read it. I never said I "got the point" I said it was sad. It was. Sad ending. I said four words and you had to jump all over me for some reason. And that reason was because I missed the point of the book.
I think we all need to calm the fuck down and get back to sucking dicks.
Come on, who wants some tasty dick?
If you didn't "really read it" then you can't "really" formulate an oppinion and are therefore only in this thread to troll. For some reason I keep taking the bait.
So anyways how about that "Pride of Baghdad" book? I hear there are lions in it.
i guess i should have
I thought Graizur was perma-banned with good reason?
He was. Now that I know he's graizur it all falls into place.
hopefully I can trick them into giving me the GameStop 30% discount
[realspoiler:b88ebb7615]"There were other casualties"[/realspoiler:b88ebb7615] So perfect.
