I’ve been spending more money on music than clothes and reading comic books (well, graphic novels). I realize that’s a ridiculously gender-biased thing to say. What I mean is I wish my mom had bought me X-Men instead of Archie. She also tried to replace my Stephen King novels with Nancy Drew. Mom, what were you trying to do to me?!

To her credit, she came home with an electronics kit after I started dissecting all the radios in the house.

Anyway, I sort of guiltily devoured the first in the Last Man series. It’s about what happens when all the men on earth die — except for one — and the women take over. As a dude I know pointed out last night, the ladies kinda screw everything up. Yeah. But I wonder what would happen if the men were left without women.
