Mogley

I know a girl that has a dog named Mogley. I asked her why she named him Mogley. She said he was named after the character in The Jungle Book. The character’s name is spelled Mowgli, so I asked her why she didn’t name him Mowgli. She told me to shut up and go to Hell. Maybe I was rude, but spelling mistakes bug the shit out me, especially when it comes to names. Names are important. You shouldn’t give anyone or anything a name that you can’t spell correctly, especially if that name comes from a beloved classic. She could have spent thirty seconds looking up the correct spelling online, but instead she butchered it and Mogley’s suffered ever since. It’s kind of sad that the first thing she did when she got her dog was to make a mistake that she never bothered to correct. Poor Mogley. Poor Rudyard Kipling. And poor English skills.

Deadpool Killustrated (comic)

One of the more interesting things about Deadpool is that he’s aware that he’s a comic book character. There’s a famous storyline where he goes on a rampage and destroys the Marvel Universe and enters the real world to confront the comic book writers and artists who created him. So what’s the next step after that? Well, have Deadpool kill the some of the most iconic character of classic literature of course.

The logic behind Deadpool’s thinking is that he can’t really destroy Marvel characters without first destroying the classic characters who inspired them. And so Moby Dick, Captain Ahab, Ishmael, Don Quixote, Sancho Panza, Tom Sawyer, Dracula, the Headless Horseman, the Little Women, Ebenezer Scrooge, Dr. Frankenstein, Mowgli, the Little Mermaid, the Three Musketeers, and a bunch more need to watch their backs because the Merc with the Mouth is coming for them.

This is a pretty interesting comic. It’s funny, it’s violent, and it’s smart. It reminds me of Alan Moore’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but amped up and more extreme like it’s been drinking Mountain Dew. You don’t have to know anything about Deadpool to enjoy this comic. You can just pick it up and read it.
