CUP NOODLE: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL
14 years ago
"80-page event?" What does that even
? Are these the same kind of people who use "language" as a verb? Anyway, I've had dehydrated microwave Pad Thai for lunch twice this week. It's teh scrummy.
The civil war storyline is not hard to read as a criticism of the Patriot Act... with Captain America championing the resistance. However well or poorly it ends up being handled, it's interesting to see something in mainstream comics that's almost overtly political.

Looks like the post-Crisis in DC is steering that way too, particularly in 52. Which is redeeming it a bit, in my estimation. But, you know, no noodles.
Cup Noodle not only deserves but NEEDS a graphic novel.
Looks like cultural bigotry from Japan to me. Kraft Dinner has a much more entertaining backstory than Cup Noodle.
I think I may have overloaded my personal sarcasm meter...
So who would win, in a fight: Kraft dinner, or Cup Noodle?
>>Looks like the post-Crisis in DC is steering that way too, particularly in 52. How so? I'm only following any of it as closely as it's possible to do by reading scans_daily...
Well, I'm a comic whore and buy nearly everything the big 2 put out, with a smattering of indies. I think that both of the big event books have been handled pretty well...but the Cup Noodle. Damn, I'm buying both the
52's focusing a lot on the social and political changes wrought by all of the destruction from the Crisis, and there's a similar sentiment to that coming out of the Marvel Civil War series -- that the heroes should be forced to register with the government, that perhaps they aren't the best thing for civilization after all.

Kraft dinner, by the power of its stogyness. But maybe the piquant spicy wit of Cup Noodle will enable it to win out.
