Movies, Life: The New Synonyms

*New column! This one deals with (The) Surrogates, comic and movie; I don't mention it in the text, but I haven't read the prequel comic. Also included are thoughts on the SPX-paneled New Action -- which may not exist outside of SPX, mind you -- as considered against my memories of the fabled "New Mainstream" from the early part of this decade. Enjoy!
