Am I the only one who says to hell with the Middle East? I do not want to expend one American life nor one American dollar to “save” the Middle East. I don’t want to waste our precious resources on a nightmare that can only end with a nuclear solution.
Am I the only one who says to hell with the Africa? I do not want to expend one American life nor one American dollar to “save” the Africa. I don’t want to waste our precious resources on a nightmare that can only end with the Chinese owning everything, after our troops do all of the fighting. If they all want to kill each other, who the hell are we to interfere with local traditions?
Am I the only one who says to hell with the Europe? I do not want to expend one American life nor one American dollar to “save” the Europe. Their leaders are elitist scum who inspired the whole progressive movement in the United States in the early 1900s and I have no desire to have any further contamination from the Euro-trash. They can solve their own problems, or not, without our involvement. Good luck to them!
I am a real conservative. I don’t believe in “nation building”. I don’t believe in exporting freedom to people who won’t appreciate it nor be able to maintain it. I don’t believe in running the rest of the world. We have our own problems and we don’t need to be getting in other people’s business.
In der Hölle der Swoons
I learned a few new words and they are some great ones;
engster (closest, as in adviser or friend)
sprengen (to blast or blow up)
The Swoons are the galaxy’s greatest miro-technicians.
The planet Swoon is refusing to acknowledge Perry’s radio overtures, so naturally, Perry goes in with Thora and stirs up the locals. Thora is threatened by monsters and little attack machines, and the all popular Bio-Umformer. The bio-umformer device can change beings into other lifeforms, mostly unpleasant ones…
Perry kicks their local butts, and now everyone is friends. Ho-ray!
Hopefully, this signals a more central role for Thora. She was an integral part of the book series, but hasn’t been seen much in the comic series.
The Atlan section is fairly lame. Atlan saves a planet that has developed a plant that stores all of the planets oxygen. When I say stores, I mean it leaves nothing for the locals to breathe. This is quite the problem for people who like breathing.
A few pages later, all is well.
According to an article in The Hill:
Pope Francis’ closest adviser castigated conservative climate change skeptics in the United States Tuesday, blaming capitalism for their views
Well, I guess the Catholic Church is going to give refunds? I wouldn’t want the Vatican accused of corruption or being tainted by money that was earned by dirty, filthy capitalists!
You know, I’m thinking that I’ve found an institution that I will be more than happy to see the government tax out of existence…
Die Verdammten von Isan
Isan, an Arkonide colony, went through a nuclear war eight years before the story. The planet is in a mess and they have been unable to call for help. Perry shows up, all is good. Not a particularly inspired story line, but there was some interesting new vocabulary words!
The Atlan story wasn’t very impressive either, but they did introduce the Springers. Springers, or the English tranlation “Jumpers”, are an interesting race in the book series. They are a militarized trading group that is quite predatory in their tactics. In this story, they were pushovers. Maybe next adventure…
Perry Unser Mann Im All Nr. 7
Austand der Mutanten
This was a poor, by the numbers production. The plot was tepid and the characters were cardboard. The Atlan story was just a lame.
In short, this comic did not measure up to its’ predecessors!
Thankfully, there were not all that many new words this round. I found ten words worth noting. My two favorites are Verdacht (suspicion) and Geisel (hostage).
I hope the next one is better!
