Comic book pairings

Ok, so check the title…what was I thinking?

Well we all know about pairings of “things”, well maybe we’d like to know more about pairings. You know, when you are about to leave the house and you receive that odd look from your significant other or the neighbor or perhaps the letter carrier. What they are really trying to say is; who dressed you today and didn’t you know that shirt doesn’t go with those pants?

Besides the daily challenge of pairing clothes there are other things that pair naturally and some things that don’t. A definite no-no pairing is scrambled eggs and McDonalds orange juice. If you haven’t experienced this, just feed the combo to your five year-old and then take them for a drive. But, I digress…

Pairing the right food items on your dinner plate has long been the domain of chefs and wanna-be chefs. Wine sommeliers have that claim to fame for wine and food, and craft brewmaster dinner pairings are all the rage now. Which reminds me, I’m off to a craft brewmaster dinner tomorrow! Just what does this have to do with comics you might ask? Well, I had to build up a little suspense…

Now we have beer and comic pairings! This does prompt a 9.0 “what were they thinking”? Someone has decided their 5 minutes of fame, actually more like 9 minutes and 32 seconds, will be to pair beer with comic characters. So enter a 4 pack from Wychwood Brewery called “Beers of Character” and with brew names like Hobgoblin and Scarecrow, well you can guess the rest. check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcV0wYq-ZMs&feature=youtu.be

Oh and by the way, I wouldn’t let this guy handle my comics…
