Watched Joe Quesada’s appearance on The Colbert Report this morning (the wonders of TiVo). The best part of it had nothing to do with Quesada, though — it’s during the introduction, when Colbert stands up and starts ripping off his suit jacket, shirt, and tie to reveal underneath … another suit jacket, shirt, and tie.
That’s in contrast to Quesada’s open short-sleeve button-down shirt over t-shirt, which made him look like he walked in off the street. Quesada didn’t come off very well at all. He was trying to explain Civil War but kept stumbling, leading KC to remark “that’s the problem with that story, you can’t explain it in 50 words or less.”
After Quesada said something about the story being about the opposition of civil liberties and personal freedom, I gave up… because those two things are on the same side. I think he meant the story involves civil liberties vs. either security or adherence to governmental authority, but either way, I’m not interested.
Colbert was as funny as always, though, getting mock-upset when told that Captain America opposed superhero registration and describing the hero as “wrapped in the flag, with rock-hard abs.”
