I'm sorry I've been so lax with posting. I mean, last week was my Spring Break, and I really should have had time to get more up than Thor's greatest hits. But the bulk of the break was spent sleeping, babysitting, and playing with my family's new cat, Spot (sorta-but-not-entirely named after Data's pet. This one's a boy, though). A recent death in the family and major increases in my workload for school have further eaten into my time.
And yet, I managed to crank out some of my best writing ever (in my opinion) on those Civil War posts, so you may want to check those out if you haven't already.
I haven't forgotten about the increasingly-late Black Comics Month posts, and I'll have at least one more up before the week is out. It's not the best, that's for damn sure, but it'll make me feel a little better about the project. I have something of a maxiseries waiting in my "to be read" box for one of the later posts, and I'm hoping to get that done pretty quickly.
If Marvel's desire with "Civil War" and Cap's 'death' was to make me long for better times at the company, then it worked. Within the next couple of weeks, the first volume of Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and the first Essential trades of Captain America and the Avengers will all be coming to my mailbox.
I've had "Footloose" on the brain recently. My brother was in my old high school's production of the musical version this past weekend (which, incidentally, was a lot easier to watch than the film, despite having the usual problems with high school acting and singing abilities), and I've listened to the movie soundtrack a couple of times since then. I'm thinking about starting up a feature called "Holding Out for a Hero," but I have no idea what the content would be.
That's it for now. We return you to your regularly scheduled lack of programming.
