Slang terms for the enemy probably go back to the time of cave paintings, when early humans painted their enemies with vestigial tails. Television has no shortage of this brand of slang.

  3. Pull it Together: Hawkeye, Lazarus and the Finales of The Wake and Fatale

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull it Together, where the goal isn’t to tell you exactly what comics you should read, but to narrow the field by showing you titles you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours! For special attention this week, I direct you towards Comixology's Guardians of the Galaxy sale, as the second collection of Greg Rucka's Lazarus and the finale of The Wake.

    Time to buy a new external hard drive.

    I love digital comics for what they do for my ability to read back issues, try out new series, and get caught up on old. But there's always that little consumer worry in the back of my head: what I'm trading for this convenience is that technically I'm renting those comics, not buying them. No more, says Comixology.
