I first met Batton Lash at San Diego 2000, at a rather memorable dinner with Nick Cardy. I went from admiring Nick at that dinner to practically worshipping him, as the stories he told were both amazing and infused with a sincere modesty that made you want to say, "No Nick, you really are one of the greats!" Thanks to Batton and Jackie my inherent shyness was not a problem (stop laughing, Eric), as both of them were experts at drawing out stories from reluctant speakers, and their presence got Nick talking.
Ha! I've finally caught up on reading blogs! Now to get to the comic books... how many weeks behind am I now? I haven't even read the latest Aquaman...
For the one or two people who haven't figured it out, I'm doing the Seattle 3-Day Walk to fight breast cancer. It'll be happening in July, and as it's a fundraising walk, I need to raise a certain amount of money in order to just participate. I'm not quite halfway there, yet.
Haven't been reading blogs for a few weeks, but in my catching up, I found this nice post from Johnny B. Thanks JB!
Haven't done one of these for awhile, but I noticed the lows and highs along my commute and wondered what you all are seeing out there...
Invincible: Perfect Strangers: Well... after the last, somewhat disjointed, volume, I wasn't sure what I was expecting in this one. I can tell you that it wasn't what happened, though. Wow. This volume just threw all the previous ones out the door, and went in a completely different direction. Very cool. And it makes me wonder when the next volume will be out. I want to read more.
So, we saw it tonight. Preview tickets (thanks Paige!) and somebody willing to wait in line early to make sure we got in and got good seats (thanks Jim!).
Don't forget to read Girl Genius... and try some nice calming pie.
Yeah, it's still working! This one is about plumbing, property taxes, and walking. Oh so very exciting, I'm sure.

Planetes (Vol 4) by Makoto Yukimura. Wow, the action switches entirely from Hachi to the rest of the gang, and we see what's happening on Earth while Hachi is outbound for Jupiter. The war and the possible consequences make for a fascinating tale, though. I'm looking forward to seeing the finale, if I ever get a chance to see it.
