Emo!Thor Gets Wrecked!

tmt171intro Issue #171, The Mighty Thor (Dec 1969) The Mighty Thor “The Wrath Of The Wrecker!” Thundering!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts! Yup. Two weeks in a row with no Bat-snark. I’m sorry. I’ll make it up to you. I promise. The weather is soggy. It’s cold. Helloo Seattle. At least it’s not snowing. ...

Emo!Thor Gets Thermal!

tmt170intro Issue #170, The Mighty Thor (Nov. 1969) The Mighty Thor “The Thunder God And The Thermal Man!” Thunderous!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts! I’ve been working. A lot. And it’s hard to find the time to snark when you’re kicking your own ass making money. ...

Batmen And Indians

dc56intro Issue #56, Detective Comics (October 1941) Batman and Robin in… “The Stone Idol!” Moody!Monday, Batfans! By golly it’s a windy day out here in Seattle-land. Here we are, officially all “sprung” forward (and for once, I didn’t forget to change the clocks!) and yet here we are with wind…and rain…and more SNOW all up in our forecast. *hugs the city fiercely* Beyond that? Working like a mo’fo, both in our actual jobs (because, yeah, we got bills) and gearing up to start in on the second tome in The Nemesis Chronicles. St. Patty’s day is coming up, and I’ve got a corned beef with our names ALL over it (yes, I know, it’s not “traditional”, but it’s the one time of year I can justify breaking down and making some sweet, sweet crockpot love to a meaty slab of corned beef) and later in the week we shall be scooping up some cabbage for the colcannon. Mmmm. We shall feast like royalty for the weekend, and probably hate ourselves after. Eh. It’s worth it. ...

Emo!Thor Gets Schooled!

tmt169intro Issue #169, The Mighty Thor (Oct. 1969) The Mighty Thor “The Awesome Answer!” Thunderous!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts! We had snow this week. TWICE. Big flakes that came, literally, out of nowhere, lasted all of an hour or so, and then melted into nothingness as a bright blue sky overhead beamed sunshine down like it was mid-summer. Have I mentioned yet how much I love this weather-challenged city? I seriously do. Watching the weather figure out what it’s trying to do is almost more entertaining than any television show. Speaking of television: Have I expressed my love for Castle, yet? No? Then let me do so now. Because I love it. I watched Firefly and was pretty “meh” about the whole thing. But Nathan Fillion? Ye gods. The man could do whatever he wanted to me and I’d be good to go. ...

Batsy Loses His Mind!

dc55intro Issue #55, Detective Comics (Sept 1941) Batman & Robin in…”The Brain Burglar!” MOOOOOOOODY!Monday, Batfans! We’ve got snow threatening to fall, and it’s MUCH later in the afternoon than I even planned on being awake. Who loves you? WHO? SO! It’s been a darned busy week, what with getting everything set up and published. Good news: We got our proof back on Saturday and spent the weekend making whatever print changes necessary to ensure the hard copy of the book is going to look awesome. I have to say, it’s one thing to say you wrote a book and published it, but it’s quite another to actually HAVE a copy in your hands. ...
