Fantastic post. Greg Rucka knows what’s up.

IF YOU LIKE TALES FROM THE BULLY PULPIT OR THE TICK: This book has jokes in it that I wrote.
IF YOU LIKE HECTOR PLASM: This book has a ghost in it that gets fought by a person who fights ghosts.
IF YOU LIKE INVINCIBLE AND PERIPHERAL INVINCIBLE PROPERTIES: This book has a lot of blood and people being violently dismembered.
What I am saying is that there is something in it for everyone.
Today is the birthday of comics journalist and documented best friend of Batman, Chris Sims. I wasn’t able to get a Black Mercy to ship on time, so instead I wrote him a song.
To the tune of “John Brown’s Body” (aka “Battle Hymn of the Republic”):
Mine eyes have dared to gaze upon the glory of Chris Sims!
He has tamed the comics Internet to cater to his whims;
He’s decking out the Batmobile with Twilight Sparkle rims;
His soul is marching on!
Brony, brony, hallelujah!
The Glory Boat is coming to ya!
Juicy Fruit is gonna move ya!
Chris Sims is marching on!
Batman, Archie, Punisher, Ric Flair and Pikachu;
The casts of Bring It On and Glee and that new Scooby-Doo;
The double-double, pinup girls and WFMU;
These are some things he likes!
He thinks that using mustard’s how you make good barbecue;
He thinks that South Carolina is the one Carolina true;
He thinks that Aquaman is lame and Simon Williams too;
Opinions marching on!
He commands War Rocket with his minions Matt and Euge;
He scripts the Awesome Hospital with skill and talent huge;
But when he writes for CA, he’s just Laura Hudson’s stooge,
One day when that trump shall sound and we shall meet our lot,
And St Peter at the gate will say if we were good or not,
He’ll look ol’ Chris Sims up and down and tell him, “You forgot…!”
His soul will still march on!
Happy birthday from your terrible friend Benito.
