     Thank goodness the month is over because I like to have the television on sometimes while I'm reading comics and all I hear lately is the screaming from all the JC Penney commercials. Starting mere hours from the time I post this, a new day will dawn and hopefully the ad will be pulled and I'll go back to reading comics with just the familiar "dun dun" sound of all my Law and Order shows raging in the background.

     Take care and adopt a comic today!

I Told You

     Although I became pleasantly surprised when the New 52 from DC Comics arrived in the fall, I remember that originally I talked of slight trepidation.  Well to a degree I guess I was right because DC just announced that they are cancelling 6 books from the 52 and replacing them with 6 new ones.

     We shall see what happens when these new concepts (which are old ones recycled) hit the stands.  And this is why when you begin talking comics: don't get me started!

     Take care and adopt a comic today.

     One of the great things about Monday and Tuesday is that you can check the Diamond ship list for the new comics that are coming your way during the middle of the week.  The anticipation might be killing me on Sunday, but come the new work week...Yahoo!

History Lesson

     Last week I picked up my monthly Comics Buyers Guide along with The Jack Kirby Collector 58.  Both mags have great insight into my favorite hobbies past.  I've written for these publications along with others like it, but I truly love these type of publications since they inform us of our great (of comics) heritage.  This week, another one entitled Back Issue is coming out.  I can't wait!

     Don't forget, something different is coming to this blog very soon.

Good Deed

     I was meeting with a friend today who last night asked if I had a certain 2 part continued story from the mid 1970's.  He remembered the story as a kid and wanted to borrow it to re-read.  Luckily I did and passed them on to him during dinner a few scant hours ago.  It makes me feel good to be a good deed doer, especially when it comes to my favorite hobby.

Good Neighbors

     Last week after comic book day, my next door neighbor came home from college and was so glad to see me.  Well of course she was, I brought her a stack of Archies and "Life with Archie" is a title we both collect.  It's good to have friends and fellow collectors that you can chat with every so often.  Go, go,go collector community!

     Don't forget to adopt a comic today.

     PS: Coming soon to this blog...a comic book experiment.  Keep your eyes open!

A New Year

      It's the first new day of the year and I hope everyone is enjoying themselves.  And of course this Wednesday will be the first comic book day of the new year.  In fact every Wednesday brings new comics to us fans.  And every new week brings new comics which renew us, just as every single new day brings redemption and renewal to all of us, both comics fans and not.

     So treat every comic like a new experience and give those babies a try, even as some of the stories may seem like you've read them before, be forgiving and hang in there with them and give a new title a try while you're at it, after all it's a new year so live a little.

     Have a great new year and adopt a comic today.
