Working on some e-mail interviews for upcoming projects by Loyal Leaguers. More to come on that. In the interim, here's some other stuff.
Superfans: On a Boat?
Apparently someone is putting together a cruise for Superman Fans. A Cruise. I don't even know what to make of this.
Should The League be on a cruise with with other superfans? What would that be like? I can scarcely begin to guess.
Here's the promotional website.
From the Superman Homepage.
Sadly, a cruise is probably out of the question, anyway. Jamie can't do a cruise, so it's unlikely I would abandon her for several days of fun and super-snorkeling, etc... without her to go hangout with complete strangers. Even if they could land Noel Neill for the cruise.
I also have some questions about whether or not a cruise is the right way to express our Super-fandom. I'd think maybe something a bit more selfless would be a good way to stand up for Truth, Justice and the American Way (although taking a cruise in the name of a fictional hero does seem terribly American).
It's all very strange. Then again, I've never been on a cruise.
This week sees the debut of DC's project "Wednesday Comics". If its been a while since you stepped foot in a comic shop, this would be a great week to do so. For a mere $3.99, you can get a tabloid-sized comic featuring the best and brightest in the genre/ industry.
I think Busiek is on GL. Stuff like that.
This week also sees a new issue of Superman: New Krypton and the fist official issue of the Green Lantern Mega-Event, "Blackest Night".
My nerd radar is going crazy.
USA Today is running the Superman section of Wednesday Comics online. View it here. (Flash is required)
A little forewarning: I'm kind of suspecting that these strips are more about the art than the content in some cases.

Art for the upcoming Absolute Edition of the Jim Krueger/ Alex Ross comic "Justice".
I've been waiting something like four years for this Absolute Edition.

Elvira in Austin
So.... DITMTLOD, Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson, will be at the Alamo in July.
I need your help. You all know I adore The Mistress of the Dark, but I don't see myself getting to both Elvira screenings.
Should I go to see Elvira on Tuesday (the show with the better location and showing time)? Click here.
Or should I go to see Elvira on Wednesday at the Ritz for a late show, but with the movie I prefer of her two starring vehicles? Click here.
And... Who wants to join me on this adventure? Let me know which flick you want to catch!
I do not see any reason here why I would not wish to attend
