Chi G

Blog this, Pal! Gordon is just as he appears to be on his blog- literate and funny. We talked a good two hours- interruptions to meet some of the many running bloggers that were there for the marathon. G and I have different reading tastes with some crossover. At least he seems to care about a good story most of all. I couldn't admit to him I've never seen a single Doctor Who (new or old). Does that make me a nerd outlaw? I have also never seen a whole episode of MASH, but I think I saw the MASH movie.
Some recent comic reading--
Confessions of a Blabbermouth
Written by Mike Carey and Louise Carey; Art and Cover by Aaron Alexovich

Another fun and sassy GN from the DC Minx line. I have enjoyed the three Minx titles I've read (also The Plain Janes and Clubbing). A library assistant here has two teen girls, and she raves about how they have loved my suggestions for these books. She said their Clubbing copy is all beat up due to use. I just suggested they try Runaways, and the word is they love that too. Go librarian fangirl!
This one is yet another British girl named Tasha with big opinions- that she channels into her 'Blabbermouth' blog. The main story involves her mom dating a new guy, and dealing his daughter who starts as the new girl at Tasha's school. Fun black and white art and Mike Carey shared writing with his 15 year old daughter Louise.

Birds of Prey 110
Written by Tony Bedard; Art by Nicola Scott and Doug Hazlewood;
An adequate and mildly amusing one shot starring Huntress and Oracle. The BOP tryout stories were amusing. Waiting for a new team and stories to gel, and still mad at Bedard regarding the Knockout.

Justice League 13
Written by Dwayne McDuffie; Art by Joe Benitez and Victor Llamas;

McDuffie takes over the Meltzer story, and the Injustice League fights the JLA. I would like less Vixen. I don't like Black Canary's face, but at least Benitez isn't too pornified in his art of the women. I do like the Doctor Light smackdown for 'what you did to Sue Dibny'.

DMZ Decade Later
Brian Wood doesn't tie war up in a nice shiny bow. This standalone story about a tagger in the city who just tried to stay out of the war-- and how war comes to him.
One more night of work. Hoping to continue to unpack boxes, maybe visit my new backyard for once, and catch up on tivo'd shows and reading.

You've never seen an episode of MASH? Have you been living under a rock?

No Doctor Who? It's like I don't even know you anymore!

I'm going to have to learn one thing:

When having my picture taken, to actually look at the camera.

But hey, as far as tastes go, that's the great strength of fandom - you can be talk and get some great comic suggestions.

I used to say I'd never seen Andy Griffith also- but when I lived in GA I was forced to watch one episode.

That looks like a lot of fun. It's always interesting to meet people "in real life" that you've only ever met on the internet.
