1. You know what I don’t get? Elfquest. Now, nothing against creators Richard and Wendy Pini or their legion of fans, but I just seem to have this blind spot regarding the Elfquest family of titles. They just make absolutely no impact on me…when I try to read a sample of it, it’s like it just passes directly into my eyes, through my brain, and out my ears, leaving no trace of itself behind. I mean, I see elves, I see wolves, I see more elves…then my eyes begin to glaze over. I realize a lot of people love this series, and it does (generally) sell well for us, but…well, I guess I’m just not invited to the Elfquest party.

2. I was listening to pal Dorian and pal Ian talk at the store yesterday, when I heard Dorian explain that the Marvel character Starfox‘s superpower was, for all intents and purposes, the ability to give other people orgasms. When you get right down to it, that’s a pretty happenin’ power. I mean, that gets around all the subliminated sexuality of guys in tights “punching” each other. And besides, just look at the guy…he clearly can’t give anyone an orgasm the normal way.

3. Happy Birthday to Shane over at Near Mint Heroes!
