Absolutely. It's been lovely writing for them, and then in turn reading what everyone else wrote!

I thought you, in particular, might enjoy this. And feel free to dish about DC; between us I'm a novice when it comes to that company!

don't forget Omega Men, by your boy King.

I'm actually, surprisingly, not enjoying Omega Men. It feels overly convoluted. I am glad you enjoyed it, but I'm also having a hard time believing King wrote this!

oopsy. well, I'm glad this has come up before a scathing review appears, or you abandon it to limbo (it's fairly long, and would be a slog for someone not enjoying it). the suspense ends. anyway, this is the way it goes sometimes. I liked it, but I read the earlier Omega Men stuff a long time ago, and was glad to have them back in what I felt was a complex but entertaining reboot. on to the next!

I have it in paperback. It's not that I hate it, or that it's going to be a truly scathing review, although I will point out that it's not so overly convoluted that it killed it for me: I understand why they had to trick Green Lantern, but man, it's long. I've been reading steadily for bits, then reading something else, then coming back. It's about two thirds done - and I plan on finishing it.

I also think, and I will point this out in my review, that knowing nothing about the Omega Men didn't help: I felt no connect to this reboot, and that undoubtedly didn't help my feelings of 'meh!'

I'll try to finish before Readercon, otherwise it'll probably be my 'waiting in line to register' read!
I concur with BT, I've been looking forward to these posts each day :-)

As have I. They're as much fun to read as to write!

Wow, amazing post, Grim! I didn't realize there were Edward Scissorhand comics, nor a Spike mini-series. I have a lot of catching up to do.

Both Scissorhands and Spike were loads of fun. They both exist, and they are both put out by my favorite media tie-in graphic novel publisher: IDW comics.

I wanted to scream it from the rooftops: I was so excited. But I wanted it to be a little bit of a surprise, too.

And thank you!

Great job, Grim!
