Non-Sequitur #1:Uh...

The movie "Salt": I thought it was solid chase movie. Not ground breaking, but competent and fun.

Secret Avengers #3: I'm still enjoying this title. It delivers exactly what I want out of an Avengers comic; varied characters, an intriguing plot, action, nice enuff art, and very little decompression. So far I'm still wondering about Nick Fury's involvement with the Shadow Cabinet and I don't feel like I'm being strung along. Yet. STUFF ACTUALLY HAPPENS IN THIS COMIC.

Superman #702: Even though I knew the entire story before I bought this, I still thoroughly enjoyed this issue... alot more than I thought I would. Very eye engaging artwork, and nice little heart warming story. I didn't buy it 100% but I still recognize the emotional intent. One thing though, after Superman's speech to the aliens, is he going to give some of that JLA teleporter tech to EMT workers? Yeah, I didn't think so...

I gotta do field work at my job next week. It's not my favorite thing, but if I say no then I'm staying at home at least three days and not getting paid, so it's time to put on my happy public face...

On State St in Chicago today I saw a dad walking with his two sons. The boys were very young 6-8 years old. Dad was wearing a red t-shirt with the Flash symbol on it. He was also wearing a matching red cap with the same Flash symbol. This made me smile...


  1. I agree with Superman. As much as I've been diggin' the entrail ripping, head decapitating, punch a hole in the face type comics that have the norm these days..... Seeing a quiet contemplative story featuring the man of steel, it was like it awakened the youthful ideaist in me.

  2. Yes, I like the idea of the hero helping the common man sometimes.
