Well, we should have seen this coming.

Americanator, Japanator's conjoined twin, separated at birth only to rear its ugly head upon April Fools' Day, has sent out an e-mail to the Jtor staff wishing us a Happy Fourth of July. They've also shared some of what they've been doing since the day they hijacked our domain.

Incarnate, the greatest American comic ever photo
Incarnate, the greatest American comic ever
by Ben Huber

Greetings, fellow Americans. Even if you don't live in America, I'm sure you're pretty envious of us, right? I bet you're especially envious of our phenomenal selection of true American comics. Not those sissy, pretty-boy, wide-eyed Japanese magmas, no! These are real, manly, American comics! Like X-men and Captain God Bless America!

And they're totally original and creative!

I took a break from getting my balls zapped off by lightning for this, so I hope you appreciate it! I present to you one of the best American comics ever, Incarnate!

Americanator Travel Guide: New York City

Oh my, how did I get here?! What is this "inter-net"? The young buck who stepped out of his Time-Machine told me it is "a series of tubes", but I still don't understand why I should be writing a travel gui...
