While I Was Out

Yeesh, the stuff you miss while you're on vacation. Among characters I liked I saw resurrection, a death, and a promotion. Plus there was a teamup where Supergirl was actually fun to read and a cover with a setup I love.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, I really like images where there's a woman carrying a man. Its sweet. If I can find enough I might put a gallery together online.

Anyway, finally caught up on my blog reading. The IRIS Network (for female gamers) launched, which is of interest to me as an old tabletop gamer. Also, missed round two of Friday Night Fights.

Out of all of this week's blog posts (and I can be reasonably certain that I monitor a good section of the comics blogosphere through my Bloglines) I think Dear Comics gets the prize. And I don't think I saw anyone point to it which surprised me because its a beautiful piece of writing.


  1. That cover's been my wallpaper for the last month or so. Darwyn Cooke rules my world.

  2. I think this might be my favorite issue of The Spirit so far.


  3. It's a verrrry good issue, highlighting why Silk Satin is cool and making her out to be a female doppleganger (but not a female version, more like a foil) to the Spirit. And the cover's lovely.

  4. That is one of my favorite covers so far this year.

  5. I have to wonder... did you catch the Supergirl issue that I think may be the first non-hackneyed anti-abusive-relationships mainstream comic ever?
