Comics in (Very!) Brief

No, not an actual post, Gentle Reader, but a few comments.

1) Why o why did Mr. Reads not make me read Ultra sooner? Egad, it is Fantastic!

2) I adore, absolutely adore Avengers: The Initiative. It feels as if it is the natural Avengers bookend to Academy X. Young Avengers, my All-Time Favorite teen Avengers highlight, feels as something Completely Different. And why yes, I am collections behind, but I plan to catch up Rather Shortly!

3) No, I have not read Wonder Woman yet. No, I have not gotten to My Local to pick up my now Very Large Backlog of Comics. I think this makes me a Very Bad Wonder Woman Fan AND a Very Bad Gail Simone Fan Indeed. It is tragic, Friends, the amount of work under which I labour. Very little fun reading At All gets accomplished in the Reads Household. Tragic, tragic, tragic.

4) I find myself oddly giddy about the new Star Trek movie, more so about the Wonder Woman animated, and even more so yet about Watchmen. Oh yes, Watchmen.

When you DO get around to reading the latest Wonder Woman, I think that you'll enjoy it.

All hail the return of Amy! As much as I enjoyed the Gotham Knight DVD, I must admit that my favorite part of it was the Wonder Woman animated preview that was a special feature! It even beat out having Kevin Conroy back as the voice of Batman. (When I read comics with Batman in them, I hear Kevin Conroy's voice.)

Oh yes. Ultra is fun. Have you read the rest of the things from the Luna Bros.? Girls was awesome. And I think issue 1 of Sword was the strongest first issue of anything ever!
