Back to Life, Back to Reality

We said our vows.  We drank our champagne.  And we lay on the beach for one glorious, sunny week afterward.  Now it’s done, and after a year of nonstop planning, things are finally (more or less) back to normal.

Did you miss me?  I think my comics did—the stack continues to grow ever larger, but I made a bit of headway this week.  I’ve caught up on “Trinity War” happening in Justice League, Justice League of America, and Justice League Dark—I wish I could say it was good stuff, but I think we all know better than that.  Are these books just genuinely bad, or have I somehow outgrown the Justice League?  Given that I’m planning on going shopping tonight for a new Wonder Woman shirt to wear to Boston Comic Con this weekend … probably the former.

Speaking of which—BOSTON COMIC CON!  They’re expecting a crowd of 15k, and I plan on being among them.  There’s another great guest list this year, and in between all the big names, I’m especially excited to meet Yale Stewart.  Yale is the creator of the web comic JL8.  This wonderful strip has shot up in my list of web comics I enjoy, having easily become my favorite of the last year.  If you haven’t been reading it, you owe it to yourself to start.  You don’t know the magnitude of the brilliance you’re missing.

I’ll have a wrap-up of BCC and some other stuff next week.  And if you’re planning on being at the show, leave me a comment here or send me a tweet.  Interaction is everything.
