It’s that time again! When nerds across Massachusetts travel many miles in blistering August heat in heavy, uncomfortable cosplay to attend that Mecca of geek shopping and celebrity photo ops: Boston Comic Con. My schedule only permitted me to attend BCC on Saturday and Sunday this year; I usually go Fridays and Sundays because Saturdays are insaaaaaane. This year … More Boston Comic Con 2016
And then, somehow, it was September, and Autumn was in the air. I’ve been making an effort recently to slow my life down a bit, to make sure I take some time to stop and smell the roses—to be more thoughtful about what I’m doing each day and not just bulldoze my way through work … More Autumn/Flash Gordon approaching
Distance: ~3.25 miles Funny story (funny/not funny), my Garmin couldn’t find me today so I wasn’t able to track my time or mileage properly. Sigh. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it because it was overcast? It worked fine in the same area earlier this week. Anyway, I was trying to find a flat … More long run report: 3/2/14
Soooo what with the moving and the traveling and the whatnot, I’ve fallen pretty far behind with the comics reading. If you don’t believe me, here’s a photo of all the loose comics lying around my apartment that I haven’t read yet, finally sorted into piles: Intimidating, when they’re all laid out like that. I … More comics TBR pile(s)
Just finished reading my first book of the new year, Showcase Presents: The Trial of the Flash. It covers a bunch of issues from 1983-85, when the Flash (Barry Allen) is on trial for murder. We all know I love me some Flash, and overall I loved this (even though it wasn’t my boy Wally), but … More mini book review: The Trial of the Flash
So in addition to pictures of my cat, I know the other thing you guys really missed during my internet hiatus was my spot-on insight into comics. Never fear! I am back with an update on the big comics shebang of the month, DC’s 52 new #1 comics. Now, no way am I reading 52 comics … More comics galore! what I’ve read from the DC relaunch so far
Backstory: DC Comics, one of the “Big Two” of comics publishing (think Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman) is relaunching/rebooting their entire line of comics, putting out 52 Issue #1s in September. It is the Big News in comics right now. Apparently pre-orders for Justice League #1, the comic kicking off DC’s reboot next week, are over … More reboot it and they will come… right?
And here we have the 2nd Gracetopia Comics Digest. My internet freaked out on me, so I’m way late, but I promise this is going to be more “weekly” in future. I’ve made a few changes from last time, but this is still a new and malleable creature, so feel free to let me know … More comics digest, 8/16/11 edition
