Quick Weekend Wrap-Up!

New Cover Stories installment at World Famous Comics this week -- my first "1-10," focusing on Action Comics!

Robby Reed returns with new Dial B For Blog entries after too long a spell without!

My youngest brother, Karl, was in town from New York for his high school reunion this weekend, and Jessi and I went up to Tacoma for a big family day get-together with him... it ended up sort of being a "Fakes-giving Day" dinner, since he won't be out here for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, more likely than not. It was good to see him, even if his life is being turned upside-down by his divorce, but I won't go into any more details about that!

Saw the new Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon... and I liked it. Too bad DC and Warners couldn't figure out a way to use the Superboy name (you'd think they'd figure out some kind of licensing situation), so they couldn't call the teenaged, costumed Clark Kent Superman instead... but I can get over that. I did like the Transformer Brainiac 5... a very interesting take on Brainy!

All in all, a lot of fun to watch, and I'm looking forward to future episodes (no pun intended).

Haven't seen this weekend's new Fantastic Four episode yet... I'm not sure if the DVR recorded it or not.

Started watching this week's "premiere" episode of Star Trek in the new updated format... and while I love the higher quality images (all the way around, not just the new digital SFX) and the higher quality recordings of the music... you know in the opening credits, when the Enterprise zips past at warp speed? Instead of the glorious "whhhhhhhhsssssssshhhhhhhhhhh!" I'm used to, it was a simple "Sht!" -- almost like they had Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer, come and record that for them! (of course, if you've never seen the Dog Whisperer, you have no idea what I'm talking about). Didn't exactly ruin it for me, since when watching following episodes, I'll just fast-forward through the opening credits... but come on!

That's all for now!

Jon
