Opening Weekend: Cowboys and Aliens

CALLBACKS: Gordon McAlpin on Reference, The Never-Ending Quest for Relevance

The joke is more about the theater they’re seeing it at than the movie itself. The funny thing is, I’m not even all that excited about Cowboys and Aliens.

(Warning: sometimes the Multiplex 10 is R-rated. Please use discretion in reading webcomics.)
