Categories: Next Week's Is Funny

I wanted to do a quick intro for our newest columnist, Timmy Williams. Timmy comes from South Dakota, is a member of the IFC sketch comedy troupe The Whitest Kids U Know, and according to the Wikipedia, did not go to the School of Visual Arts. Also he likes comics and writing funny things. This is his first column. It’s sort of like Best Week Ever, only with less Paul F. Tompkins and more jokes and Dave Sim and farts.
Hi there! My name is Timmy. Brian and I have decided that what the world needs right now in this time of global strife is another column where some dork talks about comics. Enjoy!
I Now Have No Good Excuse For Not Becoming A Police Sketch Artist Like My Pa*
- I’m constantly teetering on the edge of thinking I’m completely worthless, and now some scientists are telling me that the fact I can’t draw probably means my brain is broken**?
I Woke Up Today Wondering, “Will Warren Beatty Ever Do Something With His Dick Tracy Rights? And Now Look At This!
- I really was thinking about that when I woke up today. Now I find this article just a few hours later. This can only mean one thing: the Internet is spying on us in our sleep (was there ever any doubt though?). And yes, I do realize that I totally missed out on a great “Warren Beatty May Lose His Dick” joke, but I’m a little too classy for that. Or am I?
And From The “News?” Category,
- Chubby guy with glasses reads comics! What’s their next expose gonna be? “Rocks Heavy?”
Well, that’s my news for today. I promise it’ll actually be about comics next time.
And Now, A Good Comic That I Read Recently:
Walking Dead #59
This thing is, like, never bad, is it? I’ve been reading this issue-by-issue for a couple of years now, and it always leaves me wanting more (and a little “cry-ey”). This issue was packed with lots of zombie-murdering action and I like the addition of Michael from Lost to the cast. While reading this, I also enjoyed a bowl of Kellogg’s Cracklin’ Oat Bran. Remember when mom used to buy that all the time and you’d fight over it with your brothers Andy and Joe? It’s delicious! As was this comic.
See you next time!

THIS WEEK’S FOOTNOTES:
* My dad actually sells cars in South Dakota, but he can draw and I can’t, that much is true.
** The article doesn’t actually say that; it’s just my educated guess.
