There’s a lot of entertainment news going on. You honestly don’t need to know most of it. And the bits you do need to know, you don’t need to know them the second they happen. You, after all, have a life. Rather than write up a bunch of individual posts you have to read, here’s one post with everything. Enjoy.

Directed by: Frank Miller
Starring: Gabriel Macht, Dan Gerrity, Jaime King, Eva Mendes, Ellen Dolan, Scarlett Johansson, Louis Lombardi, Samuel L. Jackson, Arthur the Cat
Review: Evil personified? It is Samuel L. Jackson wearing a Nazi uniform, while delivering a smug monologue, and dissolving a cute fluffy kitten. I giggled until I couldn’t breathe. And I agree, Sam. Toilets are always funny.

The title of the comic book is The M16A1 Rifle: Operation and Preventive Maintenance. It’s been posted by Ethan Persoff as part of his Comics With Problems series. What makes this fascinating is not just the fact that a copy of the comic book was included with each rifle that went to a U.S. soldier in Vietnam back in 1968. It’s not just the wacky levels of innuendo that permeate this thing. It’s the fact that Will Eisner and Eisner Studios provided the artwork.
