Meth means Death....Literally!


So Apparently Meth really does mean death, and not just because it's a highly addictive drug.
It's also the Jewish/Yiddish word for Death.

See? Who says you can't learn fascinating and  interesting things from comic books?

This little tidbit came courtesy of Swamp Thing#153 (Vol. 1). This was during Mark Millar's run, and after having read the second volume of his collected SW run, Darker Genesis,  I'm interested in picking up the first.

That's a great Swamp Thing run!

What's up? How you doin'? Hahaha- I've been working my ass off. Not a lot of online time... Same every Summer.

Our boy Shlomo is on that meth... The new ROM comic drove him to it!

It really is King. I was turned on to this run in a column by CBR(comicbookresources) where this guy writes about all these famous runs you need to read, and Millar's Swamp Thing run just happened to be on there after Alan Moore's.

Hope you get a chance to relax soon though man.

Yeah I saw that, poor guy. I actually liked the updated look and issue itself, but I can see where others might not. It was a rather super-short story, but the art seemed fine to me.
Shlomo obviously does not agree;)

You definitely need to. I think it's just as good. In different ways- but just as fascinating.

I hear that, son... All I know is work. All I know is cheddar. -All I know is broccoli: My dinner's always better.

Hahaha! Yeah- I let you have it on his blog! We're still cool, though.
I... was not a big fan of a majority of reROM.

Yeah. It could've been better, but it wasn't as bad as it could've been.
