At long last, a new Hot Flash!

But first, there's A Crayon Haiku #49, in which we briefly pay tribute to Rogue! I didn't harp on this point about the films ('cause I could seriously go on forever, or at least quite a while), but another problem with them is that although she may be a decent actress, Anna Paquin is simply nowhere near hot or charismatic enough to play Rogue. It's even worse than the Kirsten Dunst as MJ thing with the Spider-Man movies, because at least with them Dunst isn't a distraction in the role. Every time Paquin walks onto the screen and they address her as "Rogue", however, I want to shout, "Oh, get the hell out of here." Of course, that may be because the Spider-Man films are far superior movies and I'm less inclined to shout at everything I see. Man, I hate those X-Men flicks.

And yes, it's been over a month, but there's new content in the Dusty Plastic HELL department with the 79th Hot Flash! This one came to mind as a result from a comment by Tetsu Deinonychus regarding the pitiful X3 incarnation of Juggernaut. Looks to the contrary, it's probably one of the more involved comics we've done, given that it involved extensive modification to a Zangief Pocket Fighter sprite (hell if I was going to do it in multiple poses, though) and includes characters from several different games. But why the Juggernaut and Dazzler pairing, you ask? I admit to being something of a Juggy and Dazz shipper, primarily because of The Uncanny X-Men #217-218. I'll probably end up reviewing them one day, but suffice it to say that Juggernaut pursues Dazzler across a snowy expanse because he is a fan of her music and she ends up exhausting herself to the point of collapse trying to fight him when all he wants to do is give her a big hug or get her autograph or something. It's hilarious. Oh, and in case you're wondering, the background is from Final Fight 3.

Crayon Trivia Fun Fact: The Juggernaut was the subject of the very first Crayon Haiku.

Okay, that's all for now -- ja ne, minna-san!
