    I know what you mean... With people like Waid, Hickman, Cornell and Spencer taking over big time at Marvel, and DC doing the Lobdell-Nicieza-Mackie 90s love fest, I've gone from 80% DC to 5% DC, 75% Marvel and 20% indie books in a year or so.

    At least I didn't pay good money for it.

    Really though, what the fuck was going on with Frank Miller at the time?
    Maybe he's the one who lost a bet.
    I was thinking that Frank Miller is really taking the piss at DC (All-Star Batman must be at least), because the alternative is too sad to think about. But then I saw the Spirit.. and read an actual interview and saw an interview on Sin City, so my self-delusions have shattered again.

    Having the Christmas party in January is actually a brilliant move. Ginger bread and holiday decorations get so much cheaper after December.

    If I didn't already know Lynn Varley was an award-winning colorist, I sure wouldn't have been able to tell from DKSA.

    Waid's first issue of Hulk was also quite, quite good.

    I can't go out and buy one because the magic players will go on a looting frenzy.
    Which sounds like 'rooting frenzy', but since we're talking about Magic players here...

    My favourite superhero comics in the late 90s were the Batman and Superman Animated Series books.

    The only DC book I have the slightest interest in right now is WW, and I could easily live without that.

    Just got off the phone with the administrative assistant at the AIDS outreach center. He got SO excited about the 10,000 € haul from last night's fundraiser. It reminded me that, aside from allowing us to help a lot of people affected by HIV and doing prevention, stuff like that improves the job security of four really good people.

    Yeah. I bought 10 Marvel books this week, and only one DC. It's never been that lopsided before.

    For some reason, I'm imagining "...visually yucky..." on the back of a copy of DKSA as one of those potted reviews.

    Zero marvel or DC for me this week.
    Bought the new Castle Waiting issue (Fantagraphics), the 'A Man Named Hawken' TPB - a supernatural Western by Tim Truman and Son (IDW), the latest 'Modesty Blaise' strip collection (Titan Books) and the first 'Nexus Omnibus' (Dark Horse).
