I didn’t get a chance to work on the comic, partly because I didn’t get a good idea for the next comic until it was too late to work on anything. I went to a family gathering, the last scheduled for a while, and that took up the time after I came up with the idea. Also while there I hit my head (long story, but my fault) and it still hurts. (Don’t worry, I was able to get home and stuff and I think I’m fine.) I didn’t want to do anything today but rest my skull. I did finally get to watch that The War Of The Worlds DVD and the movie is just as good as I remember it. I want to go back and listen to the commentary tracks and other special features, but I watched the “making of” feature and it’s quite interesting.

But on this week. Fredric Wertham continues to haunt us. On the comic reviewing front, I need a replacement for Dragon Ball Z‘z Wednesday slot and I realized that, while I’ve reviewed the Modern comics run from the 1980s and the Dynamite issues I regret buying from the 2000s, the only Image/Devil’s Due run I’ve touched is the final issue of A Legend Forged. That means that the new Wednesday retro-comic review is the Devil’s Due run on Voltron: Defender Of The Universe, proof that I can enjoy a reboot if done right and well-produced rather than one or the other. So I’m looking forward to re-reading that series. Otherwise no changes. Still more Zero Hour aftermaths and all the rest.

At least I know my headache isn’t coming from Seduction Of The Innocent. This week anyway.


About ShadowWing Tronix

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)

    Sorry to hear about the head. Be observant about how you feel the next days because hopefully, the injury is not a concussion. But if you feel it could be such, then definitely check in with a medical professional.

    Looks like lots of good articles and a good podcast for me to catch up with (I haven’t been on here since Saturday morning). I’ll try to catch up as much as I can today.

    Reading that run of Voltron last summer was very enjoyable for me. I’ll have to reread each of those issues as you do your reviews, so that I can more directly address what you’ve written. I finished my 80s MASK comics on Friday. That was also quite enjoyable. In the letters column from issues #5-9 of the 1987 MASK comic Books, I noticed that too many of the fan writers were overly critical. I wonder if that’s what partially caused the series to end at issue #9? It’s a shame that it didn’t continue. Instead, we have the modern version of MASK by IDW that barely remembers the MASK I know!
