Attention Kevin Church:

Drunk Galactus and I wish you a Happy Birthday!

(Okay, I know Galactus was only pretending to be drunk in this particular story…just go with me here.)

Have a safe and sobe…um, have a safe and happy birthday, Kevin!

In other news:

  • Caleb, as part of his ongoing and, perhaps, near-masochistic examinations of DC’s Millennium series gets around to that issue with the splash page I posted a couple of days ago. He not only gives you a little more context regarding that situation, but writes humorously about comic as a whole, with links to previous issues’ discussions. Good stuff, go read.
  • I’ve received this by the electronic mail any number of times over the last few days, so I must pass it along here: apparently Mattel will answer fan questions about their toy lines on occasion, and this recent exchange about Mattel’s DC Comics license just popped up.

    2. Is Swamp Thing included in the license Mattel has?

    Answer: Yes he is.”

    Fantastic. It’s been too long since the last Swamp Thing action figure. I was getting itchy. No word on any new Swamp Thing chalk, however.

  • So I was reading the new issue of Green Lantern Corps, and in the background of one of the panels showing the GL Memorial, I spotted this:

    …And I immediately thought, “oh, hey, it’s that guy,” from the Tales of the Green Lantern Corps mini from the very early ’80s:

    You know, that guy who was a pawn of the Bad Guy and got his chance to fight for the cause of Good? Yeah, that guy. I liked him. Glad to see he’s not been forgotten.

  • A BRIEF COMMERCIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m listing a few things on my personal eBay account again, after a long hiatus…if there’s anything there you’d like, please feel free to bid. Every little bit helps!
