Mermaids For Sale

Fake Mermaid Corpses (made from real human skeletons, fish scales and teeth) are available for sale on the internet, and apparently have started cropping up not only on chain spam letters, but also on Mexican tabloids! I admit it took me more than 20 minutes of google searching before I could uncover this hoax, after being sent a chain letter reporting the discovery of a mummified mermaid corpse in a Russian lake! Fun-Fact: these were originally available to buy on ebay! Perfect Feng-Sui for a fisherman's hut, I guess. The bragging rights alone are worth it (if you can put up with the smell).

Buy yours here in time for Easter.

another fun incident on youtube: Russian fishermen catch a mermaid corpse and videotape it. The evidence cannot be examined for authenticity as the mermaid was later served as dinner.

February '08 H-O-T Grade

1. AMERICAN VIRGIN #23 (Vertigo)

2. WOLVERINE #62 (Marvel)

3. ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #119 (Marvel)


5. CROSSING MIDNIGHT #16 (Vertigo)

6. GRAVEL #1 (Avatar)

7. X-MEN LEGACY #208 (Marvel)

8. FANTASTIC FOUR #554 (Marvel)

9. LOCKE & KEY #1 (IDW)


Lots of new entries this month, paired with some sad goodbyes. American Virgin and Umbrella Academy are wrapping up their runs (along with near top 10 misses Cable&Deadpool#50, and Gail Simone's last All-New Atom with #20). X-Men: Legacy is Mike Carey's new start on the ongoing title, and Fantastic Four #554 sees the debut of new creative team Millar with Hitch. Gravel was a usual impressive Warren Ellis debut, but none of these could overcome the sheer fun of Bendis' Ultimate treatment of Spidey& His Amazing Friends.
