Rather, his wonderful and fun and absolutely essential weblog has turned six, which means Bully’s site is now the exact same age as Bully, the Little Stuffed Bull Who Is Also Six Years Old. Bully has been writing his site since birth, which makes all the rest of us look like the slackers we are.

Congratulations to Bully for six incredibly entertaining years! Here’s to six more, at the end of which, Bully will be…six years old still, somehow. Weird.

In other news:

  • In response to yesterday’s post someone took issue with my assertion that Green Arrow #12 didn’t really count as a post-Brightest Day appearance, as it was mostly rehashing events from #24 of the Brightest Day series. Well, there are appearances of Swamp Thing in this issue outside of the Brightest Day recap, but he doesn’t really do anything other than stand there and look at Green Arrow wander around and think about, you know, stuff. In fact, my first impression was that Swampy’s appearances were more symbolic than literal, though rereading the issue, it’s…well, hard to tell, really. Regardless, it doesn’t push Swamp Thing’s particular story any further, and doesn’t reflect the character’s apparent status at the end of Brightest Day #24.

    In conclusion, nobody cares except me, Rich, and that commentator who asked the question and also wants me to post the forthcoming Swamp Thing variants, etc. (NOTE: I’ll post those covers eventually…what, you thought there was a danger that I wouldn’t?)

  • Pal Dorian gets his hands on a Bud K catalog, which reminds us that Diamond Previews has no monopoly on bizarre genre merchandise.
  • Speaking of bizarre genre merchandise, Andrew shows us this thing that actually exists and there shall be no forgiveness for him.

    You rang?

    Oh, sorry, heard my name. :)

    I’ve been debating whether or not to get Green Arrow #12. The truth is, the current storyline for Swamp Thing just doesn’t interest me that much, so I’m going to wait and get the three Search for Swamp Thing issues before deciding whether or not to get any of the tie-in stuff, like GA 12.

    Thanks Mike! You will certainly be on the invite list for my sixth birthday party!

    Alec just had stick around the forest long enough to see Ollie do his Charlie Sheen impression, before heading off to deal with those BP execs, of course.

    Hence, we get a “deleted scenes” issue of Green Arrow with a Constantine preview in the back, and a “fanboy’s dream” editorial about Swampy and Sting being back in the DCU. Still curious about those final two Search For ST variants, though.
