AP Breaking News

The Associated Press presents this amazingly up-to-the-minute breaking news item, dated March 10, 2007:
Stephen King Ventures Into Comic Books

By COLLEEN LONG
Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- There are few things Stephen King hasn't tried when it comes to his work. He's already the master of horror fiction, a tour guide through disturbing and fantastical worlds, a writing coach, a nonfiction author, a screen writer and even a director.

He can now claim a new genre with the recent Marvel Entertainment comics publication "The Dark Tower," based on his books of the same name.

Wow. Just...wow. Way to stay on top of the news, Associated Press reporter Colleen Long. Yes, I know I shouldn't make fun since any bit of publicity for comics is good news, and this is actually a nice lengthy piece.

But just for fun, I like to imagine what the Daily Bugle would be like if it were run this way:

"And who's that goblin guy? I hear he dropped a girl off a bridge."

With the psychotic look JJJ's got on his face it makes me wonder if this is what it's like at the Bugle when he forgets to take his meds.

One of the other blogs I'm on (www.joshreads.com) refers to JJJ as "Flattop Hitler". That appelation has never been more appropriate than for this pic.

The sad thing about the AP is that their story is often the definitive one because they're carried in so many papers, such as with their Captain America story and Quesada blowharding that Cap must be dead for real, gosh darn it...
