Scientists have recently proven that the world will end within the next five years. No. Scrap that. Not five. Five thousand. Or was that five billion? Oh, bugger! I've forgotten. I tell you what; I'll ask Jock and the Publisher: Marvel Comics, if they can remember. But I best do it before, October, 2013, or else everyone will die, Hahahahahahah!

Using GENERAL terms, answer the following 4 questions about this STORY entitled 'Space'.
  • WHAT'S THE MAIN THRUST OF THIS TALE: 'Now look-ee here', says Logan to the kid. 'Me and you are going to track down those evil mother-f*ckers who've thrown me down onto this planet, and fiddled about with you're truly. Or else I will dress up in women's clothing and call myself Shirley'.
  • ARE THE MAIN OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED: Hey! Don't fret. Logan doesn't go transgender yet, folks. But he almost did. Especially when the bad-guys got their mitts on him for a short while.   
  • ANYTHING ELSE HAPPEN: Yes. A lot of people get battered, bloodied, and bruised.
  • HOW DOES THIS STORY END: With Logan spouting the token phrase, 'What the hell?'.

All in all, what is the most memorable SENTENCE OR CONVERSATION spoken in this issue?
Now I did enjoy reading Logan's opening statement, because in a very direct manner it summed up what he was feeling inside himself, whilst poignantly referencing another hero and another feeling he's currently yearning for.  Here. Check this out...

'Cap told me once that waking up to the modern age after bein' on ice for so long was like waking up on another planet -- everything louder and brighter, smelling like chemicals, kids talking crazy. Used to envy that'.

See? Sound's pretty cool, doesn't it?

What are the BEST bits about this issue?
(+) If you ever decide to pick up this book, what you'll find is that the story part of the story feels rather hollow in execution. Having said that, though, it is precisely because of this vacant nature the story becomes very stylised and titivating to purview. Artistic even.
(+) From my point of view Jock's artwork reminds me of painted shards of glass sticking out from a one-dimensional and silhouetted background. Now some people might not like it. Other people might love it. But as for me on the other hand -- yeah -- this mode of illustration suits this tale to a tea.  
(+) OK. I know this might sound silly. But I did like the fact that the bad-guys all looked like Robocop. Yeah. Simple as that really.
(+) One of the stand-out scenes in this issue was one I'd like to call, 'The countdown scene'.  In essence, it was one of those well-placed scenarios where the hero needs to get out of an explosive situation before a bomb goes off. BOOM! He did. And it did too. In a very timely manner, Ha!

What are the WORST bits about this issue?
(-) I suppose the only problem with this story was the same problem I had with it last issue. It was too quick to read. The content was too sparse. And in a round about way the overall narrative needed more substance and scope.  

Choose TWO CHARACTERS out of this comic book, and then compare them to WELL KNOWN WOMEN.
LUCY LAWLESS AS LOGAN: Come on! Let's face it. Of course our Lucy can play our Logan like no man... errr... I mean woman alive. She has the looks. She has the stare. Plus she has that way about her that'll make her opponents shiver in fear. Hmmm? Well, it's either fear or an erection.

RENEE O'CONNOR AS THE KID: Hey! If Lucy is going to be Logan, how could I not choose Renée to be the kid? Anything else would be like me choosing Robocop to play this role. Oh! That's got me thinking about my conclusion. Heheheheee!

What QUOTE would be appropriate to sum-up this story?
'It is more dangerous that even a guilty person should be punished without the forms of law than that he should escape' -- Thomas Jefferson

What SONG, THEME-TUNE, or MELODY, would complement this tale, as well as add and extra dimension to it by default?
If you're ever thinking about reading this comic book again -- which you should, because it was a very quick read -- do me a favor will you? Read it whilst listening to this very stark and brooding song. Trust me. It'll work.

Hello, darlings. My name is Robocop. And I would like to explain to you how I got my role in this very funny looking comic book.

One day Larry came up to me and said 'Hello sweetness, how would you like to star in a comic?'. 'A comic?' I said to him, 'But I thought those dreadful things disappeared the same time as cassette recorders?'. 'No' he replied, 'They still do exist. And I'm pretty damn certain that by exposing yourself in one of these God awful publications, it would give you some great exposure when your movie eventually comes out'.

'A movie?' I exclaimed, 'They're going to make another movie about me? Surely they don't want to make another one after that dreadful debacle seen during my third film'. 'Yes' Larry retorted, 'They're going to reboot you, old bean. Reboot you like no man alive'.

So there I was, thinking about comic books and movies, contemplating if I should do it or not. When suddenly, out of the blue, a hidden directive slapped me right across the face. SLAP! Prompting me to make a shocking appearance in this space ridden drama.

So how did I do, my friend's? Was I any good in it? And if not, don't fret, I'm sure you'll see a lot more of me in the future.

You have ten seconds to comply.
