She’s A Brickhouse….


Hi y’all,

So, Wonder Woman #1:

1. Donna Troy temporarily stepping up as WW. Cool.

2. Cheetah, Giganta & Psycho revamps. Cool.

3. Diana Prince. Cooler than cool.

4. Nemisis as her secret agent partner. Ice cold.

5. No more “Diplomat for peace”. Yay!

Heinberg is kicking butt on this relaunch. Does more to take WW back to greatness in one issue than many others did in the entire runs of WW.

One of My Favorite artists, Frank Cho, has a new HB coming out of all of his Liberty Meadows coming out called Liberty Meadows: Cover Girl. Newsarama has a nice little intro to the world of The Liberty Meadows Animal Preserve over on it’s web page at:

Off The Leash & Running Wild….


Hi Y’all,

Cobb: Off The Leash- A new book by Beau Smith looks to be the kind of manly action comic that you don’t see much around anymore, and we are much the poorer for that lack. Beau’s new tale about a former Secret Service Agent who comes back to fight the Russian Mob looks to be a great action epic with a 24-type feel to it. I’m looking forward to it, plus Cobb looks like a grown-up Johnny Quest so he has to be cool after all….

I Got Myself A Gun…


Hi Y’all,

Now I maybe a little late to the party since the season finale for the Sopranos was a week or two ago, but I just ran across an interesting theory about this season of the Sopranos. I have heard from a lot of people that outside of the whole Brokeback Vito subplot, that not a lot has happened this season. This theory posits that the events of this season were to give everybody a chance to change, but being the Sopranos, that they all backslid. So with the exception of A.J.(who took the opportunity to change), that when the end run of the series comes, they have no excuse when the hammer comes down on them. Thoughts?

Oh Captain, My Captain…

Hi Y’all,

My all-time favorite character, Captain Marvel (Shazam) is back in a new 12-issue maxiseries -The Trials of Shazam!- set to drop in August (with a preview story appearing in June in DC’s Brave New World anthology), with art by Howard Porter and written by Judd Winnick. I will of course be picking this up on principle.

Here is a interview on Newsarama about their plans for the series- http://www.newsarama.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71004

Porter’s art in the previews is looking very good. The only question mark in my mind is Judd Winnick. Now I’m not one of the legions of fans who hate him with the fury of a thousand suns, but I am deeply ambivalent about some of his past work. Some of his work leaves me cold, but I have liked his past two stories about Cap- “Lightning Strikes Twice” and “First Thunder”. He seems to have a good modern handle on Cap, so I’m hoping for the best….

Hi Y’all,

Apparently, I scored a perfect 100% match to Sirius Black, with Severus Snape & Albus Dumbledore coming in 2nd & 3rd at 95%.
