Let The Rich Build Us Things

Especially if one of those things is a floating performance island in the Hudson River which will surely become overrun with all the exact people you detest being around. You’ll survive though, because that’s what’s called “Living in New York” and being a misanthrope. But seriously, LET THE RICH BUILD US THINGS, they’re just spending their money to make your life better.

The Bride of Manson

charles-manson-26-year-old-marriage
 
In a move that must have pay-per-view/reality show producers frothing at the mouth, convicted mass murderer Charles Manson is getting married from behind bars. The lucky girl is 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton, who left her home at the age of 17 to be close to the incarcerated old man. From all the evidence presented, the 80-year-old (who’s currently serving a life sentence) is holding it down… although due to state law he only gets two hugs per visit and none of those conjugal. The ceremony of these two lovers will take place on the first Saturday of December, January, or February, and only 10 non-inmate guests will be permitted to attend. No outside photography will be allowed, so it will be up to the entrepreneurial skills of one of the guests to bring us the first images of Mr. and Mrs. Manson.

Our New Hero

whatever-man

We talk with Tim Lahan about his relatively new comic, Whatever Man
 
Who is Whatever Man?

Just some guy who wants to be a “super hero” so he can wear the costume and reap the benefits of seeming important while doing as little work as possible. Pretty much the prototypical modern American male.
 
Where did he get his powers from?

He doesn’t really have any powers. If it appears like he does it’s probably because he’s dreaming.
 
Well then, in his dreams, what does he use his powers for?

Getting what he wants (beer, girls, chicken nuggets, whatever).
 
Does Whatever Man have any enemies?

I think there are a couple guys in the comic who follow the super villain trope, but they’re featured more as vignettes and don’t really interact with WM. If they do happen to cross paths they’re almost always victorious because Whatever Man sorta sucks at combat.
 
Who knows about Whatever Man?

Like his actual identity? Everyone, he can’t be bothered to wear a mask.
 
What happens next?

He tries to get a publishing deal and eventually optioned for a cartoon series or full-length feature that flops. Or just a free beer at the very least.
