New Comics for March 14
I am running late tonight because I wanted to watch Van Halen get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was a bit odd because Eddie Van Halen was in rehab so he wasn't there. It was also strange because neither Alex Van Halen or David Lee Roth showed up. That left poor Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar to pick up the award. I was happy to see them, but it seemed like a piece of the group was missing. Velvet Revolver performed "Ain't Talking About Love" and Slash's guitar work was excellent. Then Sammy, Michael, and Paul Schaeffer's band did "Why Can't This Be Love" which was also good. What was missing was Eddie's legendary riffs, Alex's incredible drumming, and David Lee's showmanship.
I am happy to see Van Halen inducted though. For their contributions to music, they are most definitely worthy. I am crossing my fingers that Eddie gets better at rehab and that he can rediscover the joy of the music he created.
Back on subject, it is a light week for me so I am really happy. I am still trying to drop more titles, so we shall see how I am doing. Here is the list:
52 Week 45
Green Arrow #72
Stormwatch PHD #5
Tales of the Unexpected #6 (of 8) - pictured
Teen Titans #44
Wonder Woman #5- in which Will Pfeifer is given the unenviable task of connecting the disjointed uncompleted first story line to Jodi Picoult's upcoming run. Yikes.
New Avengers #28
New X-Men #36
Wolverine Origins #12
Lone Ranger #5
Gen 13 #6- under duress
JLA Classified #36
Martian Manhunter #8 (of 8) - not missing this at all
Irredeemable Ant-Man #6- no remorse
Punisher War Journal #6- still a bit sad about this one
That is the scoop for the evening. I am pretty excited because I finally made the 20 pound goal on my weight loss. I have ten more to go before April 4, so that should be a challenge. There are three and a half more weeks left and my teammate and I are lifting weights like crazy while upping our cardio. My shoulders are so sore tonight that lifting the frying pan is a bit of an effort. Nice.
Have a wonderful week!
