The Comic Foundry has The Ultimate Convention Guide by Andy Schmidt and Jim Demonakos, for all you folks headed to San Diego.
Girl Genius continues to make fans happy by giving them three doses of Agatha's antics a week instead of having to wait months for a new issue. And since I was getting the collections as well, the move to webcomics actually has saved me the money I would have spent on single issues. I find myself wishing that more comics would go to this format. It really works for Girl Genius.
So thanks to a friend (Thanks Jim!), I got to see a preview of Fantastic Four last night, in the midst of tons of other chaos. The movie was great. I would call it a perfect popcorn movie. If you are expecting it to be high art, go somewhere else. But if you want a decent adaptation of a comic book, this is it.
Our thoughts and our hearts go out to you today.
I made it!!!! I have the full amount!!!! YES!!!!!

TWO MORE DAYS! That's right, only two more days until the deadline for donations. I still need $165 to Walk. I'm hoping some folks will chip in and make up that amount for me. And, if you do, you can ask for an entry in my drawing and get some pretty cool prizes. Prizes so far (will be combined into prize packages): The goal of this project is to get enough donations that I can participate in the Seattle Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. I will still do the drawing even if I do not get enough contributions, but I'll certainly be happier about it if I do make my goal.

As the town fills with booms in the distance (who lets off fireworks at 7 freakin' am in the morning?!??) I want to wish you all a happy holiday. I hope you and your pets stay safe today. Go read this: And look here:

Yes, it's that time again... time for "Things in Previews That Look Interesting But I Can't Afford To Get (with a list of things I am getting just for contrast)". I'm going to start with the bulk of the book, and then come back and cover the "big four" at the end. Please remember, I'm listing what looks interesting. My actual purchase list is going to be much smaller. The numbers after each title are usually the page number in Previews Magazine, so you can follow along at home.
