I Drove Seven Hours Through Insane Traffic To Write This
My normal 30 minute commute took me 7 hours on Wednesday, thanks to the lengthy detours I had to go through in order to avoid mudslides, floods, washed out bridges and big freakin' rocks blocking the road. So...expect updates to be few and far between through the weekend, as the place I'm staying during this period doesn't have internet access.
That being said...I came all that way, listened to two two-disc musical scores and a radio play (Doctor Who: Shadow of the Scourge, because I was in the mood to hear Lisa Bannerman's Prof. Summerfield) for a comics week that, all in all, was rather dull.
Bloodhound, Hard Time, Hero Squared and the last of the Warren Ellis written Apparat books. The latest volume of Imadoki was the only manga title of interest to me, though I had rather expected From Eroica With Love to be released this week as well, but it was a no-show on our invoice.
On a related note, the newest issue of Alter Ego, a magazine I have no patience for under normal circumstances because of it's Golden Age fetishism and obsession with the minutiae of the comics industry's past, made it into my purchases because it contains material on Wildcat and his artist, Irwin Hasen. I'm sad like that.
And, in response to a rumor apparently going around on Mike's site, yes, I am the butch one. There really shouldn't have ever been any doubt. Heck, I'd go so far to say that, of all my co-workers, I'm the least gay-seeming one.
