I can’t believe I didn’t think of this yesterday.

From Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

King Arthur: “Old woman!”

Dennis: “‘Man!'”

King Arthur: “‘Man,’ sorry…what knight lives in that castle over there?”

Dennis: “I’m 37.”

King Arthur: “What?”

Dennis: “I’m 37, I’m not old.”

Me neither, Dennis, me neither.

Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday…they were much appreciated. My sister’s birthday is today, so please think some good birthday thoughts for her as well!

Just like your average radio “comedy” talk show host, I’ve stolen a story from FARK: “School Adopts Superhero Mascot” – yeah, I don’t imagine that state of affairs will last terribly long.

A quick look at the new DC solicitations:

A series of one-shots bridging the gap between the first two Superman movies and the forthcoming Superman Returns are coming, with director Bryan Singer’s apparent involvement. Sadly, the fates of Gus Gorman and Lex Luthor’s nephew Lenny will remain unrevealed. (Four words: “MA KENT ONE SHOT.” Fantastic.)

Superman/Doomsday Omnibus TP – I expect this to sell very well, given the low price point for the amount of material you’re getting. The Death of Superman trade is still a regular seller for us after all these years, and the follow-up Doomsday material still moves from the back issue bins…yeah, this will be a good stock item.

I like Mogo (the planet Green Lantern), but not enough to read Ion #3. Given the last time this writer handled Kyle Rayner, I think I can safely avoid this return performance.


Solo #11 – Will probably be the best issue of Solo yet, featuring big heaping piles of Sergio Aragones. Did you like DC Super Stars #13? Then you’ll like this.

Sloth – A new longform graphic novel from Gilbert Hernandez is always welcome. 128 black and white pages in a hardcover for $19.99? By Gilbert? That’s value, friends.

“Chief O’Hara to be Named Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security”

“O’Hara, who worked as a private security consultant from 1984 until his retirement in 1998, served as police chief in Gotham while the city was being overrun by ludicrous costumed villains, absurdly eccentric criminals, and dangerous maniacs. He developed a close working relationship with police commissioner James Gordon, as well as Gotham’s famed superhero, Batman.”
