    I'm aware of this. I can suspend disbelief for basically all of the sapient plants we've seen so far, but not the way the Murakami orchid is described. It is a literal potted plant. It is literally sitting in a pot. Or an "incubation cultivator." And it can only talk to a "special" person.
    It is the author's projection of himself talking to his own houseplants. This book is not "so bad it's good." This book is BAD.

    Or, as I like to call it, "Unread Harvest".

    I find that less objectionable than the fact that many of the characters come across with less personality than the plant does. ;)

    According to this interview, Schreiber said he based Rojo Trace after Neeson in Taken and stole some of his lines.

    I know he gives the same speech as Neeson in Taken, which is why my entry was about Neeson having no luck in Star Wars. But I didn't think it was full of ripoffs of the film beyond that one line.

    Yeah. Galaxy of Fear at least had Boba Fett v.s. zombies and also had an appropriate mad scientist in Dr. "Death Sentence on 12 systems" Evezan.

    Surprisingly, this is one of the few pieces of reading materiel to survive the Zombie Apocalypse at Woodbury Prison but nobody there wants to read it; not because it reminds them of the hellish day-to-day life they lead, it's just they heard it was really, really, bad.

    Well, if one thing has been made clear, it's that people really don't care about Red Harvest, as very eloquently expressed in Ulicus winning entry.

    Let's try something that people do care about. And if you don't, I don't think I want to have anything to do with you.

    The Star Wars version of James Bond, complete with cackling villains, shirtless good guys, quirky gadgeteers, and a beautiful women who ends up dying a horrible death right after sleeping with the secret agent.

    Not an entry, but I just realized that a story arc called Iron Eclipse marked the fall of man named Stark, and I have to wonder now if that was intentional.

    James Bond in an awesome star wars comic book which suddenly gets much more awesome when they add Boba Fett.

    See how many times Jahan Cross can get away with the "I had to kill him, he was an enemy of the Empire" excuse to his boss Armand Isard.

    The excellent villain from a miniseries no one cared about returns to bedevil an awesome James Bond analog in a miniseries no one read.
