Issue #45: I definitely like the TV Beard Hunter more. This one’s just a one-note joke more than a character. And I get that Morrison was trying to puncture the insecurity at the heart of toxic masculine posturing, but it uses homophobia to do it.

It’s a fun issue, though, and I love that it turned into Die Hard with the Chief at the end.
