-A WEEK OF PAIN

This was a fun week to try to rank. Almost every comic dealt in some form of absolute pain, but what did I enjoy more? Was Ringside’s emotional portrait of the sadness inherent in wrestling better than Maestros’ artful depiction of an absolute despot committing acts of cruelty upon those he loves because his word is absolute and a penance is due? Is the almost supernatural creep factor of Black Magick worth more than Southern Bastards’ portrayal of misguided, righteous rage? Does Sexcrims get bonus points for that one lady’s creepy Ditto smile when Suzy talks to her mom?

It did. It did get bonus points for that.
