Happy 25th Anniversary, The Princess Bride

Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

It was a time when life… didn’t seem so complicated. You know, 1987, when action comedies got romcom voiceover guys to do their trailers, and everything was drenched in customer service hold music.

But seriously: The Princess Bride, you complete us, at least you have ever since I got over how utterly terrifying I thought the torture scene was when I was a kid. Happy Birthday. You’ll be happy to know that even though I’d watched you, the book still fooled me until I was about half-way through it.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
