Back with a Vengeance!

I'm nearly done editing the Teenagers from the Future book, and I've been reading comics like crazy. I've even had a chance to catch a movie or two. Plus, I lectured at the Norman Rockwell Museum two weeks ago, and I want to tell you about that. Lots of stuff to talk about, pop culture-wise.

So, I'm back! I'll be posting AT LEAST twice a week, and I want to read your comments.

To get warmed up, let me ask you--what have you read or seen recently that was really great?

Even though we've been e-mailing back and forth about the book (very exciting!), it's good to load this URL and see a new post. I'm getting back on that horse too, this week.

Thor has continued to amuse and amaze - I've never been a JMS fan, but I'm getting to be.

Booster Gold is up there with All-Star Superman and Green Lantern as DC's best book and that puts BG in the lead for best new series. Johns has definitely hit a hew stride.

The X-books are pretty damn good leading up to Messiah Complex.

But, for me, the best thing about the last two months is the fact that a) the Superman books are back on track, b) there's been a new book every week in some way and c) the Legion arc in Action is shaping up quite well.

I finally bought "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets", the Fletcher Hanks collection by Fantagraphics, and was absolutely blown away by it. That man's mind must have been utterly terrifying to occupy at times.

I was reading sections of "I Shall Destroy All the Civilized Planets" out loud to my wife the other night as she was trying to read something in bed. She punched me in the face, suspended me over a pool of killer squid, punched THEM in the face, and then threw all of us into the sun. So I guess the Fletcher Hanks rubbed off on her a bit.

I'm all about the Fletcher Hanks stuff these days. Although Stardust kicks Fantomah's ass as far as I'm concerned. Stardust will be the biggest movie of 2015.
