Random Musings

Wonder Woman 223

Tonight Jim and I got to do something we hadn't done for years- we went to a laundromat to do our laundry. Our dryer broke right before we left for the holidays, and we can't get a new one delivered before December 16. What an experience it was doing communal laundry! Jim and I stuck close together and kept a big eye on our stuff for fear that someone might steal our coveted Green Arrow and Green Lantern t-shirts!

At any rate, we made it home alive, and started to look at a few new comics. Here are some thoughts.

The new Wonder Woman #223 was an action packed fight fest from beginning to end. The Amazons are in their most dire peril and it doesn't look to end anytime soon or end well. I loved it and give it a "high five".

I also looked at New Avengers #13 and found out who Ronin is. I am not surprised at all, as the identity fits Bendis' M.O. of keeping it in the family so to speak. I also enjoyed the interaction between Spider-Woman and Captain America. It should make for great story telling down the road.

I looked at Adventures of Superman #646 and found another major spoiler- the identity of Ruin! What a week for reveals, huh? What did you all think about the character behind it?

I haven't had much of a chance to glance at anything else but am hell-bent to do so tonight. With my surgery being Friday a.m. I am running short on time.

For those that asked, I will go ahead and just spill it- I am having an abdominal hysterectomy. Fun, huh? Hopefully it will go well, and I will be back soon enough. It is hard to believe that I am still young but having this procedure, but those are the breaks!

Take care and have a wonderful new comics day!

Good luck with your surgery. Wish you well and smooth recovery!

(Maybe if you read enough comics beforehand you'll have wonky superhero dreams while you're sleeping)

First of all: What Ragnell said. Best wishes for a smooth procedure and a speedy recovery.

WW was definitely my "favorite read" last night, and WW, who's getting all kinds of flack these days, seems to be the one superhero who's thinking and acting as I'd expect them to do during this situation. Oh, and I loved the three sonic boom panels, perfectly bracketed by Candy's "God speed, Diana" line).
