Hey, Apple, still plenty of good pickins in comic books

Apple has been looking at streaming original content for awhile but is, apparently, ramping things up.
The comic books big celluloid has chosen so far has been interesting - from commercial to weird. Why the subset of The Mystery Men was chosen over it's parent, The Flaming Carrot was always baffling.
Anyway, here's a list of some of the comic book content yet to be tapped
  • American Flagg
  • Black Kiss
  • Grendel
  • Flaming Carrot
  • Enemy Ace
  • Aztek Ace
  • Magnus Robot Fighter
  • Kabuki
  • Astro City
  • Xenozoic Tales
  • Black Hole
  • Hard Boiled Defective Stories
  • Maus
  • Rac Shade, The Changing Man
  • Warlock
  • Shang Chi, Master of Kung Fu
  • Metamorpho
  • Deadman
  • Blackhawks
  • Mister X
  • Ms Tree
  • Sandman (Wesley Dodds)
  • Scout
  • Machine Man
  • Big Bang Comics
  • Eight Ball
  • Bacchus
  • Brat Pack
  • Lady Death
I could go on & I am sure my minions will add more

Is Alex Jones an Operative of the Global Elites ?

As Alex Jones & his cabal at InfowWars continually hammer away against union & cooperation & promote division & balkanization, I wonder - Is the goal here to divide & conquer ?
After Napoleon swept through Europe, the kingdoms that didn't have a chance against his onslaught realized they had to organize within their culture. As technology advances, the world "shrinks". It is natural that humans homogenize and organize. Something's lost & something's gained.
But is Alex' plot at the instruction of the Global Elites? Is the strategy to divide society so the Bilderbergers can sweep in with their robots & drones to conquer the Earth?
Gotta ask yourself - how did Al get out of Bohemian Grove alive? How come he didn't become a human sacrifice?
There is no doubt his strategy of division, pill popping, paranoid survivalism and carrying on about supernatural malarkey is compelling - but what's the pupose? His constantly hammering away at the notion we should believe him and nobody else - well, that's just a core strategy of cults.
I cannot say. BiC doesn't have the kind of budget to crack the leviathan of InfoWars. But it's time to start asking these questions.

TV on the Honor System

Could there be another way to deliver TV content to the products (us)?
Instead of chopping up shows with commercials that people have been increasingly able to defeat and, online, can crash ones browser - how about giving the viewer a list of sponsors and maybe specific products - let the viewer purchase one or two - then, the sponsor would give the viewer a voucher he could use to download an uninterrupted show or even season of the shows.
I guess you'd have to figure out how much the sponsor usually receives from $ and unit sales. This method, however, would have the added effect of a confirmed sale and, issuing coupons, could confirm repeat sales.
The viewer would get a better experience and the sponsor would get better data.
I guess the only real drawback would be the viewer having to sit down and look thru the sponsors & their ads & buying shit online in advance.
