You might wonder what kind of idiot makes big deal out of five years of blogging, then immediately drops off the radar for two and a half months. Well folks, I am exactly that kind of idiot. Blame the extended hiatus on my father's day present (a Kindle), visiting family, a mild case of comics burnout, and mainly on the loss of my primary blogging laptop. But most of those issues are resolved, and we are back in business, bringing you the incoherent babbling you have come to crave!
I have been remiss in my blogging duties, and for that I apologize. I haven't even mentioned the new MODOK here, and that used to be my main schtick. Of course, I love new, all-up-in-your-grill MODOK. He's a feisty, can-do kinda guy who's not afraid to get his hands dirty. A lusty, gutsy, two-fisted Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, if you will. Best of all, this spider-legged skin-headed lunatic is a cloned offshoot of the original, so we can always get classic MODOK back whenever George Tarleton gets re-mutated, and you know he will. Then we can look forward to all-out MODOK WAR.
I haven't been ignoring comics the last couple of months, by any stretch. In addition to my weekly regulars, I've been reading some great Don Rosa Donald Duck books, and I finally got around to finishing Planetary. I've also been reading up on the Doom Patrol Archives, which had the mixed effect of giving me some great old Silver Age comics to read, while at the same time making me rethink the virtues of some more recent comics. Look for more thoughts on that in the near future. Oh, I have so many half-baked opinions to share, my friends! Won't you join me?
