This Week's Releases: August 30, 2006

First, I want to address the lack of ... enthusiasm around here lately. It may seem as if I'm going through the motions, not committed with the same level of enthusiasm that got me mentioned as "the All-Star of the new bunch of bloggers that seemed to pop up last year". Frankly, it's simple: unemployment sucks. One would think I would have more blogging time, but with the waiting, the worrying, and the playing of videogames as avoidance ... days get busy. Hopefully, things will come together, and I'll get back on track soon.

There are new comics this week, and I'm buying them. Well, not me, actually. My good and wonderful wife will be doing the buying this week, as we need to scale back our trips into Salt Lake City. Since she's headed in on Wednesday, she's stopping by 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics with this here shopping list. Thank heavens I have a comic shop I can be proud of, where I know they'll not treat a woman as if she walked in off Mars itself.

I finally caught up my Battlestar Galactica viewing to the point where I can actually read the comic (set midway through the second season). My #0 is still safely tucked away, and I will greet this #1 like the frothy confection of politics, religion, and character that it ought to be. I'm also thoroughly thrilled to see another Action Comics, Brendan McCarthy's Solo, and Mike Carey and Pasqual Ferry's debut on Ultimate Fantastic Four.

All these do not hold a candle to the appearance of a new All-Star Superman, however. My eyes blink in happy surprise when I see it on the shipping list, and it's become an event to be treasured.

Unemployment does suck. I'm getting a little tired of it myself. I hope things get better soon!

I'm really hyped about All Star Supes, Action Comics, and Teen Titans this week. This "Titans Around the World" storyline sounds cool to me.
