Jacob Chabot (X-BABIES) are there to bring it to you.Then, take a look
into the many possible fates of Spider-Ham as the Assistant Watcher
answer the questions you never really thought about in MARVEL: WHY NOT? –

and Agnes Garbowska (GIRL COMICS). Finally, in the not too distant
future, Swiney-Girl, the daughter of Spider-Ham, returns to face down

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
