Cartoon Network's "Level Up"- An Insipid, Insulting Ad-Campaign, Sure to Lead to An Even More Insulting TV Series

Hey all you geeks out there, NWC's Geddy Cahoon here with a very special rant. I know I haven't done Figure Fraction in a while... Again, it's not conducive to my schedule, but I'm gonna try to get one done as soon as possible. Anyway, I do have something to complain about today! If you'd like to hear a bitter, hate-feuled critique of the ad-campaign for my favorite network's newest endeavor, please hit the jump dear reader! A pretentious, holier-than-thou pseudo-essay about a show that is in no way intended for someone of my age awaits you!

The Ink Spill No.4

Hey guys, another edition of the Ink Spill is here so you can look at pretty pictures and subsequently see what I have to say about them.

-No.1- Iron Man 2.0 #11

Iron Man 2.0 #11

       Apparently Iron Man is going through some tumultuous times and Rhodey is getting a lot of focus these days. I can't say that's a bad thing as I personally have always loved the contrast that the War Machine color scheme offers to the vibrancy of the red and gold. Salvador Larroca is definitely a cover guy and he's shown what he can do with Iron Man all throughout Matt Fraction's handling of the book. While this iteration is being penned by Nick Spencer, Larroca's cover are still great to have. I'm not the biggest fan of the hard black lines in the background but the coloring overall on this is great and as dynamic a compliment to the line work as anything I've seen dropping this week.

Jank Johnson!

Episode 6 of the podcast brings diversity! I talk to my good friends Eric and Bryan about mountains, fast food, and the death of Jack Johnson. Also gay porn comes up somewhere... so there's that.

Update on All Things NWC

Hey everybody, Geddy here. Just wanted to pop in and inform anyone who may be waiting for it that the Figure Fraction will be a Bi-Weekly thing going forward. I already write for two other websites, (My column is "The Cahoon Run Down") and They're Pro-Wrestling sites, for anyone reading this interested in that sort of thing. Point is, I can't possibly write three articles a week and balance that with school. It's too hectic and difficult. I love writing on the internet, but I need a break every now and then. So for anyone wondering where the Fraction is this week, it will return next week, and be done every other week for the forseeable future. Also, Scott has informed me that it's a "Shitty week for covers," so no Ink Spill either. Possibly going to skip the Podcast this week as well. It's a slow week! Keep checking the site for updates and any new content if we do get around to it. Sate yourself with all the other crap on here until we get off of our lazy asses and do some work, and Welcome to Your Doom!
