Have a Great Fourth of July!

One of the cornerstones of America is the freedom of choice. Today you can choose which national symbol you want to see come out on top.

Do you prefer this . . .

. . . or this?

(I feel like an optometrist.)

Speaking of Captain America, why can't we see his movie today? It seems a pretty obvious connection to make for Independence Day. I know, it would have to go up against the new Transformers, but surely that's nothing that the Sentinel of Liberty couldn't overcome. After all, he's not star-spangled for nothing. But Marvel Studios, in its infinite wisdom, is asking us to put our patriotic urges on hold for nearly three weeks. Oh, well. I guess that allows us to focus on what's really important today: backyard cookouts.

Happy Canada Day!

We're celebrating Canada today with Northguard and his mission to guard the, uh, north (including Quebec, as the fleurs-de-lis remind us). But no complaining; it's a Dan Day cover.
