So you may have noticed…

…that I’ve been in bit of a Low Content Mode this week. Sorry about that, but there’s been a confluence of events and moods and time constraints that’s been in the way of producing daily content here. Which also means that I’ve not yet finished the new End of Civilization post, which usually would be up the Thursday after the release of Diamond Previews. There will be an EoC post, but it’ll have to wait ’til tomorrow.

Again, I’m not goin’ anywhere, but your pal Mike needed just a slight break from the site for a while. I still love you! Well, like you. …”Like” you, at least. I mean, I’m not totally disgusted by you, by any means. Mostly.

Just so there’s something about comics in this post, I did read this week’s new issue of Superman, with the debut of the new creative team. Other than editorial notes pointing out tie-ins to stories in other current DC titles I’ll never get around to reading, I thought this issue was…a little better than the previous storyline. At the very least, I felt like the character of Clark/Superman was a little more relatable than in the earlier issues. Probably didn’t hurt that the new creative team isn’t trying to squeeze 40 pages of story into a 20-page package, which sounds like “hey, getting my money’s worth!” but in practice results more in “infodump” than “story.”

That new costume, though…bleah, I say again.

    Waiting an extra day (or three) for your EoC post only makes it that much better. Please take your time and bedazzle us with you unparalleled acerbic wit.

    Gosh, I hope everything gets better, Mike. Take it easy. We’re not going anywhere either.

    It’s probably thick of me but I never noticed you did these on schedule anyway.

    I’d just open up the site and there it would be….

    I’d be happy to see an update, however brief, on the Great Grendel reread you were doing a while back… they were favourite comics of mind but I’m not sure they’ve aged well.

    Just happy you’re not sick.
    Meanwhile,anybody see any swamp-like appearances coming up?

  • Mikester says:

    Thanks, guys.

    Tom – I’ll say a little something about that soon-ish.
