Giving, receiving, and comic books! May 10, 2006 Posted by Mookie
I'm shipping out all the orders for t-shirts and posters today. Once again I apologize for falling behind, so if you ordered something from me and you don't have it yet, rest assured that it's on its way. If all goes well I should (finally) have a new P.O. box for those of you who want to send me traditional mail.

Don't forget that Anime Boston is only a few weeks away! If you want to see my infamous panels, The Dominic Deegan Q&A and Writing Unique Heroes & Memorable Villains, be sure to stop by if you're in the Boston area! As the schedule stands right now they have me doing both panels one right after another starting at around noon on that Saturday. It, like most convention schedules, is subject to change, but consider this a preliminary heads-up.

And finally, I got a couple of new comic books yesterday. In case you're interested in what I'm reading and what I think of it, then read on.

I was able to pick up part 4 (I missed it last week) and part 5 of the Action Comics / Superman crossover storyline called "Up, Up and Away!" I am really, really enjoying this. I'm a big fan of Superman and when there's a good writer working on his titles he really is the greatest superhero ever... even in this story, where his powers have been taken away from him and he absolutely loves it.

I also picked up the first issue of DC Comics' amazingly ambitious "52," which tells the story of the year after their "Infinite Crisis" event, one week at a time. Not only is it a story that puts the spotlight on the DCU's minor characters, but they're putting out a new comic every week for a whole year. Very ambitious and very exciting. The first issue was full of great moments. I'm eager to see where this goes, so I'll have a lot to talk about for the next fifty-one issues.

And that's all from me for now!
