Random Thoughts and Musings: Hump Day Edition

Well, we did it. We went to our retailer and picked up our last bit of books. I personally told the owner that it was our last week, but that if anything we had special ordered came in to let us know as we would pick it up. It was bitter sweet to say the least. I am now trying to get in the mindset of a bi-weekly comic book purchase, and face the fact that I can't avoid spoilers, as hard as I might try to.

Special kudos go out to Ethan Van Sciver, who came here and posted about the "gratuitous post" that featured his cover to JLA #20. I appreciated that he explained his vision and was nice about it. That takes balls, and it elevated him in my eyes.

Over at Occasional Superheroine, Val breaks the news that a major newspaper broke the spoiler news of what happens in DC Universe #0. Don't click the link if you don't want to know, even though Val was kind enough to put in a spoiler break. Once again the major comic book companies inadvertantly screw things up for the fans, even though it seemed senseless.

Not much more going on. I am still very crabby because I have bronchitis. The only thing keeping me going is the fact that Iron Man is coming to theatres on Friday. Yay! I really want to feel better so I can go to the show!

Have a wonderful evening!

Can't believe the mass media blew another major comic event. They did it with Captain America too. Are the comics companies so desperate for exposure, they don't even care about those keeping them in business already? Oh right, stupid question.

Hope you're feeling better. Too bad bronchitis can't turn into a super power.

ha ha ha I thumbed through the issue and didn't even notice.. I was more interested in the specter. I'd miss my own head if it wasn't attached.
