I don’t have much to say about this comic except I feel like I’ve sufficiently taken the joke of the exceptionally heavy Iron Man helmet and driven it straight into the ground, so to speak.

That said, I was specifically trying to infuse a Charlie Brown vibe into the third panel of today’s comic. I think that’s how people should do flips – with their knees tucked into their chests like an Olympic diver.

Not much else to get into before the weekend. I’m pretty much spent talking about all things Iron Man. I know some of you a breathing a sigh of relief. Be sure to come back to the site next week for a return to form.

But because I can’t resist and because reader William Briere was nice enough to send me the link, check out this ultra-sick Iron Man Mark I action figure from The Land of The Rising Sun. Seriously, Japan makes all of the coolest toys.

I’d love to get my hands on this, but I’m sure it’s crazy expensive. With that level of detail, it would have to be. See the little Mark II and Mark III suits in the inset? SO PRETTY!

That’s it for me tonight. Seeing the stage rendition of Frost/Nixon this evening which has also been adapted into a movie being released in December. There’s already some early Oscar buzz around it. I think it’ll be interesting to compare the two interpretations of the script.

Beyond that, I’m planting trees on Saturday! Jealous? I know you are! I’d like to reward myself with a showing of Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist even though I know I’m entirely too old to waste my time on it. What can I say? I have to nurture my Michael Cera crush.

Okay. I’m rambling. Gotta cut it short. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Take it off before you give yourself Scoliosis.



Considering the weight of the helmet, maybe you should have stood up more slowly?...
