I need YOU to buy New Warriors!

Yeah, I know I'm having a theme month about not white superheroes, but I would like to talk about my favorite superhero team.
As many of you may know, I'm a huge fan of the New Warriors, so I am of coarse sad now that I have recently learned that it will be canceled pretty soon.
BUT IT'S NO TOO LATE!!! WE CAN SAVE IT!!!
Go, RIGHT NOW, and buy Yost awesome series. Do NOT read it online for free, buy the actual thing.
What's that? You can't, because you need the money to get bread on the table? Well, too bad! Life is tough all around! And so what if you already bought the series?! Buy nine copies of every issue!!!
And if the book SOMEHOW should be saved, I promise to make a video where I will reveal what I look like without glasses.

Not-White Month: Godzilla VS Barkley.

I know what your thinking: "Hey, Barkley ain't no superhero!"
But, he IS a famous basketball player, and honestly: superheroes and sport-stars has allot in common. Like, they are superior to us physically, they are admired and idolized by millions of people, they can get away with stuff that would send a regular Joe to jail, and they can grow 300 feet tall.
Well, Charles Barkley can, anyway...
This comic is about Charles Barkley having a game of b-ball with Godzilla. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW!?!? GO BUY IT ALREADY!!!
Have really have to disagree with my fellow comic-book reviewer Linkara, who claims that this comic sucks. This comic delivers exactly what it promise: a bucket full of stupid. And as a huge fan of stupid, I am lucky to have this crown jewel of dumb in my bookshelf. Or though, the dialog could have been better, but it's a minor problem. The artwork is pretty good, and the cover is even better. I will admit that I'm disappointed over the comic not being an actual fight to the death between the two glorious titans, but hey, se la vie.
I seriously dont get why there aren't more comic-book about sports-stars fighting monsters and stuff like that. I would gladly buy a issue with "Galactus VS Tiger Woods." I'm dead serious.

Not-White Month: Blue Beetle.

Have you ever read a comic, and thought for yourself: "Dying is the best thing that ever happen to this guy"?
It cant be denied that a dramatic death can sometimes boost a characters popularity, or at least make people aware of the fact that they, you know, exist. And Ted Kord might be a prime example of this.
After his many years of service in the JLI, Ted was pretty much forgotten, or thought of as "that silly guy." He was, if I'm not wrong, once one of Barbara Gordon's agents for a time(which makes him the only male member of the Birds Of Prey), but that ended when he had a heart attack.
But he recovered from it, was back in action again, and then...
.... Yeah... that happened...
I actually sort of like "Countdown To Infinite Crisis" despite the fact that it made Max Lord a bad guy. Ted died, but at least he died as what he is: a hero. And he was even in character. But I still think that it's too bad that a guy has to get shot through the head before he gets the respect he deserves. And even though he has been retconed out of existence thanks to New 52, he still lives on in the heart of all comic-lovers, as well as his heir; Jaime Reyes.
After getting fused with the blue scarab that gave Dan Garret(the first Blue Beetle) superhuman strength. But instead of that, Jaime gets an intelligent high-tech armor.
I wouldn't say that Jaime's series was perfect, because that would be a lie. But it's very creative, and has allot of great ideas, but not all of them are used to their fullest, like the team(or street gang is probably more accurate) known as the Posse, who cold have a series of their own, if you ask me.
Besides Jaime's awesome design, the books greatest strength is possibly the supportive cast. Besides his best friends Brenda and Paco, Jaime also finds a sort-of mentor in the bad-ass Peacemaker, one of the first Beetle's old colleges. My favorite characters in the series has to be Hector and Nadia, two computer nerds who works as Jaime's tech support. They honestly dont do that much in the series, but I really dig them.
The series doesn't create many memorable villains, but it does have one of the best aliens-who-wants-our-planets of all times: The Reach. Their plan to conquer the planet is simple: they wait. By poisoning our water and air, they do not have to take the planet by force, because we will(after being poisoned for 100 years) simply hand it over to them with a smile. Is that genius or what?
Blue Beetle vol. 7 is a colorful, action-packed and fun read. The first TPB is named "Shellshocked," but you can start with Road Trip, if you cannot find it. You honestly dont miss that much. I started reading the series with "Road Trip," since I could not find "Shellshocked" to begin with.
That's all for now. I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.

Not-White Month: Night Thrasher: Four Control.


Today, we are going to talk about possibly one of the least appreciated superheroes ever: Night Thrasher. Allot of people think of this guy as a lame Batman-ripoff, and to a degree, he kinda is. He is a multimillionaire who swore to avenge his parents by fighting criminals. But besides that, there are plenty of differences between him and Batman. Night Thrasher wears a very advanced armor, he is much more hot-headed, he uses a skateboard(Shut up! It's NOT lame!) and most importantly of all: he didn't fight crime alone. He realized that if he should stand a chance in a world full of super-humans and AIM technology, he had to gather allies, so he formed the New Warriors, my favorite superhero team (you can read about the New Warriors HERE). But this series is actually about Thrasher working alone. He has taken a leave of absence from the Warriors to get a hold of his at the moment very chaotic life, after learning that his company has been corrupted for years by his old sensei Tai, who by the way is also the murderer of his parents(long story). But it's not going to be a holiday for Thrash, for someone has kidnapped his legal guardian Chord. And just to make maters worse, Chord is in need surgery in less than three days, or he will die.
The kidnapper is most likely someone who wants to gain control over the Taylor Foundation (a conglomeration of financial intuitions, owned by Thrashwhich leave the board-members of the Taylor Foundation as the prime suspects.
This is a spin-off series of the New Warriors VOL 1, so you will probably enjoy it a lot more if you have read the New Warriors series first, since there is a lot of referring to past events. The first issue is pretty average, but besides that, it's an all in all well told story. It's enjoyable to see Thrash move away from being an angsty, hot-tempered Punisher-wannabee, and that he finally becomes an adult with control over his life.
The art is gritty, but not in a bad way, and we have a lot of action. My favorite issue must be issue three, where Thrash must face the super-powered corporate-shark Gideon, both in combat as well as the financial world.
If you are a fan of Nicieza's run on New Warriors, or you just want to read about a ass-kicking guy in an awesome battle-armor full of gadgets, then this is a must-have.
That's all for now. I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.

Not-White Month: Pak's War Machine.

War Machine is one of those characters I really wanted to read about, but just haven't found any books with yet. I know where I can find him, but my economy doesn't allow me to buy too many comics, and I usually buy stuff I can find cheep. But recently, I managed to find two TPB collecting the 12 issue long War Machine series written by Greg Pak, the man behind Incredible Hercules, Alpha Flight and Chaos War.
The series takes placed during the Dark Reign period, where Norman Osborn is pretty much in charge of the entire country. The world has become a darker place, and Rhodey has become darker, too.
You see, after half of his body was blown to kingdom come, he has been transformed into an ACTUAL war-machine by his friend Tony Stark. With a computer as brain, Rhodey can now access data from all over the globe, and see all evil there is. Now, more machine than man, Rhodey is stone cold, and decides to, and I quote: kill the %$#& out of all the evil men on Earth.
... So, he is kind-of a high-tech Punisher ripoff... Yay?
I have mixed feelings about this series. You see, this comic is pretty much, well... a Transformers movie. Not that it's a bad thing per se, but still, it's a Transformers movie, for both good and ill. It has allot of action, Rhodey's technopathy-powers are used to it's fullest, AND Ares is in it, too, kicking tons of ass, as well as declaring that War Machine is is his champion of war(which makes Rhodey realize how @#%& up he is).
BUT it's also very chaotic, loud, and then ending of the series feels kinda like a letdown. And I'm not too keen on the art. And really, Osborn is a villain for Rhodey to fight? REALLY?! Osborn apparently has this superpower during the Dark Reign, that he can fight with ALL the heroes in the Marvel U pretty much at the same time. HE IS IN CHARGE OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY'S SECURITY, HE DOESN'T HAVE TIME FOR THAT!!! Seriously, they should have made Ares the sort-of villain. THAT could have been interesting.
But, it's a nice little action-flick. The ending is kinda meek, but hey, it has some awesome stuff, like Ares and War Machine having a "Hero(?) fight hero, then team up," as well as a West Coast Avengers reunion. But it's by far one of Pak's weaker stories. Loved the first 5 issues, though, collected in the TPB "Iron Heart."
That's all for now. I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.

Not-White Month: Dixon's Green Arrow series.

Welcome to the first review of "Not-White Month," where we shall take a look at a couple of series about superheroes, who aren't Caucasian. Because, even though there are a couple of not-white heroes with a solo-title(like the new Ghost Rider and Ms Marvel) it's the white guys who has dominated the marked  for YEARS, and colored superheroes is mostly part of team-books. We shall start the month with my third favorite comic-series of all time; Chuck Dixon's Green Arrow.
Before we talk about Dixon's awesome run, let's talk a little about Oliver Queen.
In the late 80's and early 90's, Ollie had become a rather dark character. Ollie stopped using trick-arrows, and started to KILL criminals in cold blood. He also grew distant from Black Cannery, and their relationship ended when he kissed his secretary(which both comic readers and writers STILL make such a big deal out of. IT WAS ONE KISS, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!). Ollie grew more and more self-destructive, and after killing Hal Jordan(long story) he decided to stop the violence, and join a Buddhist monastery, hoping to find inner peace.
And that's where Connor Hawke steps into the picture.
In the ashram, Ollie meets a young monk called Connor, who apparently is his biggest fan. He has a scrapbook full with newspaper pages about his many adventures, and he absolutely idolize the Emerald Archer.They became good friends, and Ollie taught the boy everything he knew about archery, and told him stories from his golden days as hero. Unfortunately, Ollie couldn't stay in his little paradise of none-violence, since the government was after him. Because, HEY, it was the 90's, where the government was big, bad and evil. Ollie left, but this time with a new traveling companion, the young Connor. They both took the name Green Arrow, and fought together to find out who wanted Ollie dead, and why.
... AAAAAND then Hal, who BTW weren't dead, screwed it up by revealing to Ollie, that Connor was actually his son. Ollie was pissed over being lied to, and felt betrayed(and I know that it was retconned into that he always knew he had a son, and I dont care), and told Connor to stay the #@%& out of his life.
And then he blew up, before they could make peace... Ouch...
Connor decided to live where his dad died, both as a way to honor his memory, but also as a sort of spiritual journey. If he couldn't meet the man, he could learn who he was by doing his craft. And that was the start of the second Green Arrow's era.
After Ollies death, Chuck Dixon(writer of such great series as Robin, Nightwing, The Bitch Patrol Birds Of Prey, Batgirl: Year One, and a couple of Simpsons Comics) took over the title and filled the before so dark and gritty series with allot of fun, adventures, and all the good stuff comics should have. And he made Connor into a very interesting character to read about. You see, Connor has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in common with his dad! Ollie was a loudmouthed, rude hot-head, but Connor was polite, calm, and an all-around nice guy. He could kick your ass without breaking a sweet, and be polite about it at the same time. And that's another thing: Connor was a master in hand-to-hand combat. Sure, he was a good marksman too, but he didn't use as many arrows as his father, and just regular ones. Connor was more of a simple-solution kind of guy, and did just fine with an arrow and good aim.
And what goes for the ladies, well... Just take a look at this classic page from issue 106:
DUDE!!!
Event though Connor has inherited his father's charm on the ladies, he is unable to notice if he is attracted to them or not. He wasnt even gay, itt was just that being raised in a monastery for the most of his life, he has never thought much about the opposite gender, and to him, attractive women are just... well, people. But that didn't stop the ladies from finding him attractive... Lucky bastard... Literately...
Unlike many superheroes, Connor didn't have a specific town in which he operated, but instead traveled around the globe, looking for adventures and injustice to fight. With him, he had Ollie's old friend, Eddie Fyers as traveling companion. Eddie was a gun-wielding, chain-smoking ex-CIA agent, and unlike Connor, he had no problem with lethal force at all. They were an odd couple, but he ended up being Connor's mentor, since Ollie had made him promise to look after Connor if anything should happen to him.
Connor's solo career starts in issue 102 of the VOL 2 series, and I highly recommend it. The series haven't been collected in TPB, I'm sad to inform, but it shouldnt be to difficult to find the issues on sites like Ebay. There is a book collecting the mini-series called "Connor Hawke; Dragons Blood," also written by Dixon.
That's all for now. Next time, we shall take a look at Greg Pak's War Machine series.

W2 and Eyz talk: Justice League; Generation Lost.

Hi, this is Waezi2, and I am so lucky that I have Eyz, fellow internet critic and also a pretty damn good artist, with me here today to talk about the comic-book series "Justice League; Generation Lost." Hey, Eyz!

Hello Wa'! Can I call you just "Wa'"? Okay, I'll stop. Thanks for having me here today!
I review all kinds of stuff on my blog "G33K Life" at eyzmaster.blogspot.com.


So let's have a look at this series. For those of you who doesn't know the series, here is a brief synopsis:

Max Lord, once the heart of Justice League International, is on a mission to get control over all the superheroes he once believed in. He knows that this is impossible, since ALL the super-humans are after him, and therefore pulls possibly the greatest trick in history: 
By using his mind-control ability, he erase all knowledge about his very own existence. No one knows who Max Lord is... Except for four former members of Justice League International. Booster Gold, Fire, Ice and Captain Atom must now stop Max Lord, despite the entire world thinking that they have lost it, since they are hunting a non-existing man.


I, Marvell Lord, has mastered the ultimate 
comic-book weapon: Retcon!
Yeah. Such a pretty simple pitch, but a great way to highlight some of my favorite DC Comics characters of all time, namely all these 1980s heroes DC kinda didn't use much anymore, nowdays.
And what with the New 52 reboot that happened shortly after, this was kind of a last hurrah for older fans to see the whole gang together one last time.

Yeah, I know, they kinda appeared right after the reboot, but those were completely different characters, with different personalities and look, for all intends and purposes.

Even weirder is that despite Booster Gold being pretty popular the last couple of years before the Nu52, Johns made him... disappear. LITERATELY!
Granted, JLI was apparently not a big success, and Johns has a reputation for using C-List characters as canon-fodder to make them seem important, but when Frankenstein was cancelled, he was at least made part of Justice League Dark(can you believe how cheap DC is today?). So that's actually n52 in a nutshell: "Hey, kids! Sorry that you will never read about Booster Gold again, but it was SO important to make it clear how BIG an impact Superman and Wonder Woman making out has."

Bottom-line: third-stringers has no place in n52.
But enough about how much n52 sucks... Eyz, what do you think about the STORY in JL Generation Lost?


Well, the basic pitch was fairly decent. And even if to this day I still really dislike what Johns & co did by killing Blue Beetle/Ted Kord and turning Max into a villain, what was done was done. It was part of DCU History. And coming from that, this was probably one of the best and safest ways to bring the original JLI rooster back to the front scene.

Now, I'll admit some parts of the story and execution were a bit... heh. It could have been better, and was probably rushed near the end.

"Generation Lost" was co-written by original JLI co-scribe Keith Giffen and Judd Winick (whom I'm usually not a big fan of, his Outsider-run aside). Well, the original pitch and first half of the series was Giffen's. Winick had to come in to fill-in the last half.

What do you think about those two? Care to share an opinion on them?

You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!
I'm actually sort-of a Winnic fan. When writing JLGL, he also wrote the last 12 issues of the series about my favorite superhero of all time; Power Girl, which also worked as a tie-in to Generation Lost. I also enjoyed Green Arrow/Black Cannery, which apparently has a lot of haters. And let's not forget Exiles!
Winnic is a writer after my head: Plenty of action, and allot of humor. Granted, his writing has flaws, and he is a bit of a hit and miss, but no one is perfect.
Giffen, though, I dont know very well, besides his Blue Beetle stuff. Should probably try and find some of his stuff.
BTW, about Max becoming a bad guy: I don't like it either. Sure, he used questionable means to get what he wanted, but he sincerely only wanted to do good. He was just Johnsed, as I call it. I like that they in JLGL at least TRY to make an explanation to why he became what he became.


Yeah, right. 
Always forget that. Winick's PG run was pretty fun actually. It might not have as imaginative and fun as Palmiotti/Gray/Conner's Power Girl run (which introduced us to the lovely Terra III/Atlee), but it certainly rose up to the challenge.

I'm just not usually a super fan of Winick when he decides to go for a grittier direction.

And you should give 1980s Keith Giffen books a look! He created some of my all-time favorite DC character - AMBUSH BUG!! - and has a great sense of humor. His best titles are actually the more parodic or comedy ones. Lobo, when he's properly used as a parody of late 80s/90s over-the-top characters. Heck, simply the original JLI which was more of a sitcom "superhero" title than an action-oriented series.

Anyways, 'getting kinda out of topic here, but it's all in good fun - Generation Lost!

The book at least had a great pitch, which like you said made a clever use of the Power Girl series later on, running alongside this main title.

Max is back. A villain. With clear motivations. And a genius plan like nothing I've seen before - making people forget him to pursue his goals! If that isn't a simple but really effect plan, I don't know what it is!~



I agree, Max's plan for me is still the most creative plan ever made by a comic-book-villain. But that also shows that he is not a villain in the classic way. Heck, he must be the most not-like villain ever made!
But back to the series: This is a team-book, so we have allot of characters in this series. What do you think of them, and do you have a favorite/least favorite?


I'm the goddamn Booster Gold!!!
Back in the ol' JLI days, the "Blue & Gold" duo of Blue Beetle & Booster Gold really used to be my favorites. Shortly followed probably by Ice. And when they were on the team Guy Gardner (during his amnesiac days - long story...) or Elongated Man.

In Generation Lost we find back these same characters (more or less) with the added years of DCU History. Remember this is not the same young naive Booster Gold, but one who has lost his best friend (no thanks to Infinite Crisis...). The same goes for all the other characters.

Anyway, my favorites in this series were probably Booster, like you can guess from what I said so far. But the new Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes also cam on his own as a team member in this series. (I was a huge fan of his debut series - another Keith Giffen-written series by the by)


Power Girl was also fun to follow, partially due to heir series running on the side, along the same storyline.

Ice on the other hand went through some... err, strange updates to say the least.

Besides Max, what were your personal favorites?

My favorite character HAS to be the new Rocket Red, Gavril. Before I read JLGL, I thought he would be ridiculed for being a communist, and granted, it is part of the reason to why. But really, what makes him funny is his enthusiasm. Which is also what makes him so lovable. Despite hating western culture, he can set aside his philosophy in favor of the greater good, in order to help the JLI getting Max(that, and the awesomeness of being part of the JLI). And even though his English is not very good(I can relate to that *giggling*) he is not stupid at all. A bis asset to the team.
I like Booster, too. They all underestimate him from the start, but his dedication to nail the bastard who killed his best friend is the reason to why they get so far, and Ice and Fire eventually realize that he is their leader(no matter how unsettling THAT is).
I will have to agree with you about Ice. I get that she has depression of dying and coming back, but... Ice has always been known as this very warm, big-hearted person, so it's REALLY weird seeing her like this. YES, she get's over it, but that doesn't change that she... well, was sort of a jerk.


I'm now an all new character! All new powers, all new attitude, all new...
... Oh, hi, New 52! 
Right. The new Rocket Red was particularly fun. (well, I still have a slight preference for the old one, which already was the 2nd RR to begin with, the first one being a bad guy/invader - another long story!) 

People underestimating Booster Gold seems to be a long running theme with him. Something Giffen always liked to play with, be it in either the old JLI or Booster's last on-going title. 

And Ice turning all extreme wasn't that necessary. Truth be told, with the reboot following shortly this series, it even feels a lot more convulsed and unnecessary now!

As for the story itself. It was fun. Pretty fast-paced. I would say it had a sort of adventurous feel (think old serial films or adventure films à la Goonies or National Treasure) mixed with modern fast-paced TV dramas (like 24). It moved fast, with a lot of twists and turns.


But what about the art? Good story-telling is not enough in comics, as we all know. And there was, if I'm not wrong, three different artistes for the series. How were they, and do you have a favorite?

Yeah, the constant change of artists was a bit jarring to me at first.

Somehow it never felt quite right to me, DC should at least went with Kevin Maguire for this "special occasion".

You're familiar with Maguire?


Well, Maquire made variant covers for the series, and I think it would have been kinda weird to make him the sole artist for JLGL, since he is best known for his work on more goofy series, like JLI, and "Formerly Known As The Justice League"(which I BTW highly recommend). It would be like having Frank Miller as the artist for "Adventure Time".
It's a little irritating that the artist change for every issue, I will give you that. Snd I'm not to crazy about Joe Bennett. Not that he is a bad artist perse, it's just... the eyes on the women he draws... they look kinda like they are tired, or really bored. And the faces can be weird from time to time.

Duh...?
But if I should pick a favorite artist, it's probably Aaron Lopresti(who BTW was the artist for the the n52's JLI, written by Dan Jurgens). He manege to make detailed faces without making them TOO detailed, like shadows and wrinkles and stuff, which can be quite the turn-off for me.

I wouldn't go as far as "Frank Miller as the artist for Adventure Time", but in my eyes Maguire always was the one best suited for the whole JLI gang. Plus DC did want to play on the nostalgia of the older fans. 

Lopresti's was pretty good.

If anything, the unified coloring and inking technique helped the book avoid an overall uneven tone. Granted, I saw much worse in some other "limited series" or events. The art was decent over the course of the series, while peaking in some particular issues. But nothing great, nothing bad. Decent.

Where I had more problems was in the series trying to re-invent those guys. And like I said, the reboot happening shortly after, it makes it all seem even more pointless by now in comparison. Ice's redesign for one didn't really feel that necessary. (and really, wasn't this about the "old gang" joining together one more time to put a stop to Max for good, kind of avenging Ted Kord's death in a way?) The focus should have been on the group, their interactions and the entire Max storyline. Not those last minute editorial updates.

On another hand, I liked the way the new Rocket Red was drawn, really nice retro-ysh futuristic look, close to the original yet uniquely different!

Reinventing Ice is probably the weaker point of the series. But maybe the n52 wasn't announced when JLGL was being written. Maybe Winnic had plans for her, and they never went anywhere because of n52?
OR maybe Winnic wasn't conformable writing about Ice? But then again, it could be a classic case of; "let's unnecessarily change this uninteresting character in order to make her more interesting," which has been used before with both Damage's face being destroyed, or Roy Harper loosing his arm and daughter.
Besides Ice's "character development," anything about JLGL you sincerely didn't like, possibly hate?


Oh, I know the New 52 wasn't announced at the time. Everyone knows it was sort of improvised last minute, at least most of the authors on all the titles didn't knew 6 months prior to it and had to quickly improvise endings to their on-going story-lines

All I'm saying is that it is even made weaker nowadays in retrospective...
"Don't reinvent the wheel" when the flying cars are about to be announced - if you allow me this silly metaphor.
Yeah, funny thing you mention Roy Harper losing an arm to get a cybernetic one: another pointless unnecessary change.
Despite all that is said and done regarding Generation Lost, I have to admit... I kinda liked it. Sure it wasn't perfect. And it could have been better written/drawn at times. But I did genuinely enjoy it and I liked following this rag tag team of "C-List Superheroes" going after this invisible threat to the rest of the DCU.
You?


I love C-list superheroes, and I enjoyed the hell out of Generation Lost.
My problem with DC before the Nu52 was that I thought a lot of the heroes were full of themselves (seriously, the JLA had a Hall Of Justice AND a satellite!). But none of that is present in this story.

In fact, that's what it's all about: a bunch of underdog superheroes who have a job to do. Sure, they have their doubts along the way, but at the end of the day they're just human.

And YES the writing is flawed, but it compensates for this many times, like having the best master plan I've ever seen on the pages of a comic book. It's on level with the Reach on the pages of Blue Beetle having the people "make them hand over the planet to us willingly"-plan.

The thing with Wonder Woman though... I get that it's really
Straczynski's idea to reinvent her, so no one in the DCU knew who she was, but it was... odd.

Yeah, I blame that on the WW editors. They could have stopped J. M. Straczynski earlier on, since she would be getting another reboot a few months later...

And pointless. Like you said, why reinventing the wheel? And how does the JLI know who she is? THAT was never explained!

I HAVE A LEATHER-JACKET!!!
But anyway, it was a really enjoyable read, and possibly the best title DC had before the New 52. A fine tribute to the JLI.

Thanks for giving me so much of your time, Eyz :)
I wish you luck with your future projects. Maybe we could do this another time?

Sure! I'm up for it!

It was a fun episodic series, with a great concept (instead of all the usual "villains-of-the-week formula on other books). And it was nice seeing those characters together working more-or-less as a team - but that was also part of the fun!

Alright, see you around everyone!


See ya around, Eyz.
So, not much left to say but; I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with us.
