You may purchase this charming Hamburglar adventure. A child has already solved the jumble using crayon. The answer is fries.

SHENANIGANS!

Why is Gandalf inside the walls of Helm's Deep while the battle is still going on? He rode out in search of Erkenbrand (or Eomer, in the movie version).

Do your homework, dude.

Incredible, I used to go to the Silver Snail in my youth! (Think Spiderman Wedding and "Death of Superman" era).
 
2007-05-30 02:22:12 PM  
Silver Snail is a great shop - not as much comic-shop street cred as the Hairy T (I mean, SS is clean, not stacked to the ceiling with stuff and well-organized) but still good to get stuff.

Beaker in armor holding a sword? Abso-farking-lutely awesome.

It's really a shame that the photos are so dark. It looks like a lot of effort went into this. I can hardly stand to look at the photos, it's frustrating.

Yeah. Would it have killed him to have rolled a lamp over for better lighting?

Great idea though...and it appears to look really good.

2007-05-30 03:02:14 PM  
Though the pictures don't do it justice, the idea is brilliant, and subby gets my vote of confidence for lord of teh internets.
