Comics on the Throne?

Sean dropped the first in a series of posts today trying to determine what makes a good "can", "throne", or "back office" comic. I too am not afraid to admit i read (and have read) many a funny book on the can - sometimes it's the only peace and quiet a married man can get.

Today's category is "duration". I go for books like Hellboy, Usagi, The Goon, if i'm in for a real sit down (they're still digestible in small chunks but have some substance beyong a single page or two), and for my Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert and PvP (LOVE PvP) collections if time is of the essence.

Can't wait to see what's in store for tomorrow (cat 2)...

I keep all my alternative and art comix from Free Comic Book Day in the magazine rack in my bathroom for people to read if they are pooping. It's the least I can do.

Generally, though, I crap at work, so I usually take a copy of TELEVISION WEEK or BROADCASTING & CABLE with me. That way, I'm pooping, but I'm also working.

Yes, it grosses out the people I work with, but I'm getting shit done.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
