Comedic style

Black's comedic style combines many key elements from both sides of the traditional double act. Black typically begins a skit in which he presents an earnest introduction to a premise or subject that quickly reveals itself to be flawed or fundamentally ludicrous. Black then switches completely to a far-extreme caricature of human emotion. This article is about the comedy duo. ...


His would-be bent-man Gass often functions to trigger these outbursts. Tenacious D’s subject matter illustrates this technique. In "Tribute", Tenacious D tells a story in which they claim to have performed "The Greatest Song in the World" for a "Shiny Demon" who would otherwise "EAT THEIR SOULS". In "Inward Singing", Black doesn’t merely discover a new vocal technique, he discovers what he refers to as "the most powerful tool in singing technology since yodeling". Black's skits also use the catchphrase 'more cushion for the pushin', a self-deprecating reference to his abdominal body fat.

Black Jack (1144 words)
Black Jack deserves a read simply because it was written by Tezuka Osamu, the legendary "father of manga"; but moreover, it stands as one of Tezuka Osamu's most powerful, moving works as well.
Black Jack himself looks like a cross between Captain Harlock and Cruella de Ville (from 101 Dalmations)--- his shock of hair is half white, half fl, his face is marred by long scars, and his skin is a patchwork of dark and light (many other manga have parodied his face here and there).
Black Jack's childhood with his mother plays a pivotal role in many stories, including this one: the two were abandoned by Black Jack's father, and soon afterward were both horribly injured in a land mine explosion.
