Sorry, friends…I got some kind of bug, and I think I’m better served by going straight to bed upon getting home rather than staying up and feeding the blog despite the age-old advice of “feed a blog, starve a fever.”
…Look, I’m sick, that’s as good as the jokes get.
Anyway, just so I don’t leave you hanging in case I die, for you folks wondering “what was with all the Palladium role-playing books on your birthday post,” the answer is that, as per usual, I was being a jerk.
See you guys again soon…maybe at the end of the week, if I’m feeling better. And thanks for all the birthday wishes. I appreciate them.
I’ve been ill, and spending my evenings either resting or Netflix-binging on season one of Once Upon A Time.
I’ll be back on Monday…unless of course I decide to get Once Upon A Time season two from iTunes.
…so for today’s post, you get a picture of Superman with a puppy:
…because Superman with a puppy makes everything feel better.
Back tomorrow, hopefully.

So I was planning on responding to a couple of lengthy comments recently left on this here site regarding DC Comics and its current launchalanche, but neither 1) time nor 2) health are cooperating with me. I’ll get to them soon, I promise.
In the meantime, since I didn’t really have anything else planned for today…let me ask you: what’s the one new DC book you’re looking forward to the most? Just tell me ONE…don’t be wishy-washy and leave me a list of, like, your fourteen favorites. Pick one and stick to it, pals! …I think you can probably guess mine.
And I know Justice League already came out. You can say you’re looking forward most to #2, if you’d like. Or you can even pick Hawk and Dove. Either case, I won’t make fun of you. Promise. And you don’t need to pop in and declare “I’m not buying ANY of them because I hates DC forever” because that’s not what I’m asking for. I mean, c’mon, don’t be That Guy.
Anyway, I’ll probably do a tally of them for…Wednesday’s post, let’s say, and see what you folks are most interested in. Assuming I get enough response to tally, of course.
…feeling a bit out of it, so no real post today.
I will note that my prediction about Wizard Magazine ceasing publication and moving online has apparently come to pass, which already gives me a better record than most “psychics.”
I’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully.
Hey, gang…I’m finally feeling a little better, thanks to these horse pills the doctor gave me, and while last night was probably the most miserable I’ve been, I believe I’m past the worst of it. Thank you for all your well-wishes, and hopefully I’ll be back to business as usual on this site by tomorrow.
I do have a couple of links, though:
Still pretty sick, pals, so all I have for today is Gerry Giovinco’s latest column on comics coloring from the ol’ Comico days. An interesting read!
It’s another Sick Day post…I’m experiencing some aftereffects from my root canal, which has left me with some uncomfortable swelling. It’s getting better, but it’s had me spending a lot of time taking medicine and resting, and not a whole lot of time generating site content.
Hopefully I’ll be up and runnin’ again tomorrow. Thanks for your patience, and I hope to see you then.
…on account of an emergency root canal.
Believe you me, I’d rather being comics blogging.
Sorry, gang…hopefully I’ll see you tomorrow.
