IT WAS AMAZING!!

around twelve o'clock or something, mom tells me and my sister (Amanda) to get dressed. well, after we get dressed, do our make-up, and straighten our hair, mom tells us to get in the car. me and my sister already KNOW that she's taking us someplace special, we just don't know where in particular. so we're driving along, stop by the school so mom can drop of some papers (she's SAYS "oh, it won't take long!" as it turns out, we were in there for over an hour...). after that, we get back in the car and drive some more. after maybe 45 minutes to an hour of driving... my sister spazzes. i look up (i was drawing) and see that we're in a strip center of some sort. so i'm looking around, flipping out because i just CAN'T find what manda is spazzing about!!

but then... i see it... right in front of the car... is a store... do you know what the sign above this store says? i'll tell you...

Daiyori: just get on with!!

Durithyll: Daiyori! you totally ruined the moment!! great NOW what do i do!?

Roake: you can just tell them.

Durithyll: but it won't be as dramatic...

Daiyori: just say it already!!

Durithyll: okay okay okay!! (takes a deep breath and says slowly and dramatically) it said...

"Dr. No's Comics and Games"

duh-duh-duh-DUUUUUN!! we had arrived at a COMIC BOOK SHOP!!

Jacob: ..."Dr. No's?"

Durithyll: yup! it was great!! they had EVERYTHING. it truly was AMAZING. it was just shelves upon shelves UPON SHELVES of comics!! everywhere you looked, there--

Daiyori: we get the picture.

Durithyll: (huffs) why must you do that!? it's so jerkish!! let me have my moment here, ok? oi!! anyway, we got so much stuff!! we got two Uncanny X-men compilations, three separate issues of Uncanny X-Men, the compilation of the newest "Nightcrawler" miniseries, and the first compilation of "Cable and Deadpool"! those are gonna live in Amanda's room (but i can read them whenever i want) and personally, i got the first compilation of "The Question" (which contains the first six issues) and i also got issues 7 and 8 by them self!! it's great!! i love Question so much... hey!! let's rant about Question!!

First of all, i just want to say... that Question rocks!! he's different than your typical superhero because HE DOESN'T HAVE A SUPER POWER. first off, his working name is Victor Sage. he's an investigative journalist and has a pretty strong record of showing the corruption in his hometown of Hub City. Well, there are some things that an investigative journalist just can't do; like storm into a warehouse, beat up all the guys, and steal the compromising tapes, paper work, etc. that would put corrupt officials behind bars.

To fix this problem, he created an alter ego that does all the crime fighting. his alter ego is the Question. any self respecting superhero has to have a mask, right? of course! but Question's mask is what he's physically famous for. you see, as it would appear, the Question doesn't have a face. at all. no eyes, ears, nose, mouth... nothing! it looks like its just a smooth layer of skin. and THAT is creepy! if i got jumped by a guy without a face and he was telling me to spill on whatever politician, i do it!

Daiyori: that doesn't make sense... how can he breath, see, etc. if his mask covers his ENTIRE face?

Durithyll: it's SPECIAL. it has a different material that covers his eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. Thus allowing him to see, breath, etc.

Daiyori: ah. and how does this mask stay on? does it have a strap or something?

Dutihyll: nope! it's WAAAAAAY cooler! he has this special gas, that when it comes in contact with the mask, it actually causes the mask to bond with his skin! thus adding to the creepy factor!! sigh... he's so hot...

Daiyori: WHAT!? how can he be hot!? HE DOESN'T HAVE A FACE!!

Durithyll: sigh... but doesn't that just add to the mysteriousness? sigh...

Daiyori: okay, now that's just weird... hey, where'd Roake and Jacob go?

Durithyll: dunno... but i need to go take my shower now... and then i can read more of the new Question comics i got!! SQUEEEE!!
