Jim Carrey With Rabies on New Year's Eve

Our sources told us that Jim Carrey, as every year, was getting prepared for the celebration of the coming New Year and decided to go out for a walk to clear up his head and plan new grimaces for 2009, when all of sudden, he got bitten by a superfast dog with a cape who also happened to have the superrabies!

Things have gone downhill for this actor as some sort of Kryptonian foam poured out of his mouth and we're certain it wasn't champagne, we're so sure about this because we sent a very slim model to make out with him to get a sample of his saliva. Our scientists are already running tests on it.

As this article is going to print, it has come to our understanding that an entire sanitary crew has been sent to Jim Carrey's house and plans have been made to keep him isolated in absolute quarantine. We've been touched by this incident and at CATR central we sincerely expect he uses this time to make some new funny faces while in recovery-- if he does recover. This being the first case of Kryptonian rabies, we're not really sure if they will come up with a solution to his illness. We keep having flash-backs of Jim Carrey as The Mask-- now, wouldn't that be fun?

And with this, we wish all of you a magnificent New Year in company of your loved ones or in touch with the entire world through your computer. Either way, cheers in the name of the entire staff of Comics All Too Real; that being just me, Chris, of course.

The Blue Beetle's Returned Gift


ELF: North Pole Central. What can I do for you?

BLUE BEETLE: I have a complaint about a gift. You work in the Costumer Service department, right?

ELF: Yes, I do. What can I help you with?

BB: I wrote a letter to Santa a couple of weeks before Christmas in which I specifically asked him for a "Life Certificate" and I didn't get any.

ELF: What's your name?

BB: I'm the Blue Beetle.

ELF: Let me see-- Jaime Reyes?


ELF: Dan Garret?


ELF: Oh, there's another one. Ted Kord.

BB: Yeah, that one.

ELF: You did write a very long letter to Santa--

BB: Yeah, I had to make a point--

ELF: "Certificate" should be written with a "C", not an "S". Not that I care, of course.

BB: Look, I specifically asked Santa for this "Life Certificate" because I'm job hunting and everyone thinks I'm dead. I need proof that I'm alive, but no one believes me.

ELF: This doesn't make much sense. Tell them you're alive and that would be it.

BB: No one believes me.

ELF: You have credibility issues.

BB: Blame that Didiot!

ELF: **giggles**

BB: What?

ELF: He got no presents this year.

BB: Anyway, now that we're on the same page. I got this Mortal Kombat vs DC videogame instead of my certificate and I don't even have a PS3.

ELF: That's a cool game!

BB: I'm not in it!

ELF: But it's still cool. Everyone wants it.

BB: I don't!

ELF: Jeez!

BB: Look, Mr. Customer Service guy, I do really need that certificate. Is there any way I could give you this game back and you--

ELF: There's a crisis out there, Mr. Kord.

BB: Yeah, the Final Crisis, but I hear it kinda sucks. Some like it, though, but it's a divided opinion. Just do some Googling and you'll see. You ask me, I'm not even following it. It's kind of over dramatic and depressing and, well, there's no bwah-haha in it, you know--

ELF: No, a real crisis, as in no money, no jobs, no complaints.

BB: What you mean?

ELF: Santa implemented a new policy this year. We're really sorry but we're doing no refunds this time and gifts aren't exchangeable. We did our best to make everyone happy with their presents--

BB: But this is nothing like what I asked for.

ELF: Any kid would be happy with Mortal Kombat vs. DC, it has Superman, Batman, The Joker. God! It even has Deathstroke. It has the coolest characters.

BB: Deathstroke is dead. I think. Unless I didn't read well that Special--

ELF: I hear they did test the characters before choosing the most popular ones. It's a win-win game. Plus it has the most popular Mortal Kombat characters as well. Sub-Zero is my fab. Everyone loves this game.

BB: I know.

ELF: Then, that would be it. Enjoy your game and Merry Christmas!

BB: Wa-wait! Can I speak to your boss? This is really important. Dead people can be brought back. The Spoiler is back, Hal Jordan is back, even big no-no Barry Allen is back! I mean, "no-no" as in editorial never wanting to bring him back, he's a good guy, a little dull, tough, but a good one. I'm more of a Wally person myself. Look, all I need is five minutes with Santa, he'll understand.

ELF: Mr. Claus is taking a nap. He'll be up in 362 days.

BB: But it's an emergency! I can't wait that long! Look, I know people, I can get you a Madonna autograph, a date with Wonder Woman, a trip to the Batcave, just ask whatever you want. I can even bring you Booster Gold to show you your own birth! I'm in the know, you know.

ELF: Get me a date with the Wasp.

BB: Uh-- well-- Did you read the last issue of Secret Invasion? She's-- uh-- she's kinda dead.

ELF: And so are you. Good evening, Mr. Kord.

BB: Wait! I know an elf, I can introduce you to Nightcrawler-- Hello? Hello?

BB: (TURNING TO THE CAMERA) Ohhhhh, this is so not over! If you think I'm giving up so easily, you're so mistaking me with some loser like Aquaman!


BB: I mean, my point is that I'm not giving up at all!

AQUAMAN: Show more respect, I'm a King.

BB: Yeah, yeah, whatever.

AQUAMAN: Whatever.

BB: It's just that I want to get a job and this is just so freaking frustrating! I'd kill to be in a TV commercial or something.

AQUAMAN: I've done some.

BB: Are they any good?

AQUAMAN: Well-- Let's have some sushi.

BB: Sushi? Wouldn't that be a little cannibalistic for you?

AQUAMAN: Shut up.

Comics All Too Geek: Thundercats!

My geek sense is tingling again! I can't believe this is fan made!

I found/stole it from the Comic Stop.

My Christmas Gift: A Skin Recommendation

I recently discovered this British series called "Skins" that is already 2 seasons old and its third one might be getting started right about now. I saw it and it blew my mind away. It's not your regular paper-white-teeth perfectly-combed-hair teenage drama. It's fun, it's quite dramatic, it feels real and these kids do party a lot. Check out the trailer:

If you want to sample it out, check Skins El Blog, it's a Spanish blog but the episodes are in full English (there are also subtitles if you want to grab them).

Hope you like the show as much as I did! And Merry Christmas!

Charlotte and Charley, the Cat

I've been searching for a good song for this season and I found the best of all: Charlotte Church sings "Draw Tua Bethlehem". She does have a magnificent voice and, well, I might like comics, a lot, but this doesn't mean that my likings won't go elsewhere, too.

And in this season's spirit, I found this other video. It is not really about Christmas, but it is an example of loving things around us, whether if it is a little animal, as in this case, or the people around us. Caring must the be most beautiful thing of Christmas, and being an animal person myself, I wanted to share this will you as well.

Holy Christmas, Batman!

There's something about Christmas that brings out the best we have. Don't hold back and go get whomever you want within your arms, it doesn't matter if it's a psychotic vigilante who wears a bat costume and likes to scare the hell out of people at night.

A Serious Squirrel Girl Message

Of course, she's assuming she's getting votes from her fans at the America's Next SuperModel poll, but that wouldn't be so true. At least we do know there's certain Wargo that wants her sooooo dead.

Anyway, she also passed some fliers for her supporters. You can whether print them and glue them to your walls or, well, just watch it.

Before voting, check out how our contestants performed.

Aeon Flux, Red Sonja, She-Hulk and Zatanna

Confessions from the Boop

Betty Boop sent an open letter to Comics All Too Real concerning her spot in the America's Next SuperModel contest. We decided to run it by you:

Dear voters:

I've noticed I've got a few elimination votes cast against me and this makes me so so so sad. If I get eliminated from this contest this early in the competition, my only chance in life would be to get back to the bars and you know what would happen to me. Yes, it will be that bad. I have so many hopes in life, I plan on joining American Idol next year, depending on my performance in this show I could even make a career at Project Runway!, but at this point, none of this will happen. It's up to you. If you eliminate me I'll drown in tears and I will hunt you down and will tie you up and torture you and will do to you all kind of unspeakable things. I know who you are! I have your IPs! But why go this far? Cast your elimination vote against some other girl; there's plenty to chose from in this pool.

Thank you so much,


You can cast your vote here. Remember you're voting for the girl you want to eliminate!

CATR Awarded with "Premio al Esfuerzo Personal"

Comics All Too Real woke up to an extra cool Sunday today, as this blog got awarded with the "Premio al Esfuerzo Personal" given by Club Batman Blog.

The name of this award translates into "Personal Effort Award" but the full meaning in Spanish gets a little lost-- Anyway, it's some sort of meme award intended to highlight those blogs that show a lot of devotion and growth thanks to the effort of their writers.

Of course, there are certain rules that the winners should follow:

1. When you get the Award, you have to link back the blog or website that handed it to you.

2. You have to chose at least 7 other blogs that deserve to be given this "Premio al Esfuerzo Personal" and hand it to them.

3. This is optional. You can also show with pride the Award in your blog, linking it back to the post where you first posted it.

Soooooooooooo-- These are the new winners I chose:

El Blogazo del Comic. Because El Magnífico really helped me out when I was creating this blog and he keeps doing great stuff over there.

Green Lantern Butts Forever
. Because SallyP insists the Green Lantern Corps has the best collection of butts in the entire galaxy and there's no denying this fact!

Hoosier Journal of Inanity. Because Sea_of_Green's view of comicdom is the stuff of legends. Besides, she also likes the Green Lanterns and that's definitely a plus.

Acromegalia. Because Wargo is great with his Terminal Fantasy storyline and his blog has also become a place where friends can gather and have some fun.

Pai. Because Saranga has great insight whether in comic books or in real life and it's nice to talk to her.

The Anti-Bullshit Dome of Wonder. Because TF is a great artist and his strips can only get better and better.

Comics, Música, Películas, Series de TV y Más!! Because Metalero y Comiquero is a good friend I made on the web and he's always looking forward to do some new and great stuff.

You ask me, all of the blogs I link in the column of the right are winners. That's the only reason I have them there, but since I had to choose only 7, I had to be biased.
