All-Star

Today begins our Spring Break "staycation." So what did we do tonight? Nathan went to hear some bands. Jessi went to spend the night at a friend's house. Debra and I had Chinese, washed the dogs and watched TV. Gosh, I wonder what other wonders we'll share before the week is out?

Meanwhile, I finally got around to reading Today's Pick, which I bought more than week ago:


Part of DC's line of "All-Star" books, this is the Superman series that's not so weighed down in continuity and taps into the wonder of the old stories with a modern sensibility. It's what the next Superman movie should be based on -- no need for an origin story, lets just see Superman dive into the sun to save explorers aboard the SS Ray Bradbury, or fight evolved dino-warriors from the earth's core, or give Lois Lane superpowers for a day, or visit Lex Luthor in prison as Clark and avoid giving away his secret ID during a riot, or see him fight the "Chronovore" alongside his descendents from the future who have come to visit him on one of the darkest days of his life.

AWESOME COMIC. Nuff said.

Today's Word: Chronos.

Peace.
