Why oh why

oh why oh why doesn't Zatanna have her own comic series? she is fantastic! i want to see this before i die of old age.
and why oh why is my O Men 2.5 cover not 'uploading' properly on the left.
And finally, I'm re-reading 'Girls' and enjoying it much, much more this time round - always best to read these things in one go rather than have to wait month after month, I guess.

If you go down to Gosh Comics today...

Popped to FP and Gosh today. I feel so guilty because I love the Gosh guys, but I get 30% off at FP, and I'm not made of money so I go to FP. It's a bummer, as Gosh do tend to stock some cool stuff that FP don't.
But aaaanyway, such nice people at Gosh, and I dropped some O Men in there and had a nice chat with the small press guy Jon, who has an exhibition coming up soon.
So the point of this post is just to say that if you are new to O Men and fancy giving it a whirl, you can find the first Season Two collection (collecting issues 2.1-2.3), and Issues 2.4 and 2.5 (not sure if they've put them on the main shelves or in teh small press bit downstairs).

Cool graphic novels

Treated myself to some graphic novels today and quite a mixed bunch, i think you'd agree!
30 days of Night, MPD Psycho, Alan Moore's Complete Wildcats, Apollo's Song, aaaand Essential Dazzler 1 lol!
I'd day I had eclectic tastes but I think most comic readers do!
Also got my hands on some of the rare comics I buy these days (oh no, I'm not going off comics - I just read them for free from work): Walking Dead (boooring issue!), Astonishing XMen (boooring storyline!) and Powers (I think I missed an issue).
Looking forward to reading Thunderbolts, X-Men and New Avengers when I get back to work - not quite worth buying I don't think (I ain't buying anything drawn by Humerto Ramos).

A spoiler offence

Last week, after the Heroes episode, the Beeb showed a preview trailer for the next episode - which showed a complete spoiler. It's a spoiler which, when I saw it the first time round, really really shocked me, and it's what hooked me on the show. It's basically about who Peter meets on the subway train. When I first saw it, I was like 'wow, this is so cool, who could it be, who could it be....oh my god!!!'
So well done BBC2 for ruining it for other fans. And they just repeated the trailer before the actual episode tonight >:-(
What is it about Heroes and spoilers though. When I watched the NBC episodes, each ad break seemed to have a preview of a big upcoming spoiler. i was able to work out the identity of a character's father from a preview thing and I knew who played Linderman from another too.
Anyway, on another note, how exactly do Clare's healing powers work? Like, she just survived death and the autopsy lady pulled a huge branch out of her head - so what if parts of her brain were on that branch?? would she get brain damage? And she had her chest opened up - would it just all go back together? hmmm.

O Men 2.5 DONE!!!!!!!! Yaaaay!!!!! Thank goddddd.
Well, that's to say, I had my sample copy back from the printers and I just need to make a couple of minor changes, but then it's all done - phewwwww.

The Simpsons Movie

I went to see the Simpsons movie on a whim the other day and as former editor of the comic I do of course have the supreme opinion on this lol. kidding.
it's a cool little movie - made me laugh a lot - fave jokes were 'boob lady' and code black/carl. oh and bart's thing of course.
it was missing something though - like a reason for the movie in the first place. like, as bad as a fully 'real-actor' movie would have been (like the Flintstones ones) they could have maybe done a real-world segment. or maybe have a big superhero section. i dunno - it did need something extra, like the halloween eps often offer.
ah well, just praise the lord there was no musical number in it - i haaate them.

The day the bridge fell down

Wow that bridge falling down in America is really scary news. It also reminds me - does anyone else remember that US mini-series from the 80s called The Night The Bridge Fell Down? It was so gripping but I missed the second part (had to go to bed, was young). Did I imagine it???

I'm sorry, but i hated...

Transformers! Sooo dumb! too American! and the main kid - shut up!!! shut up!!!!! stop speaking!!!
