I am not in a particularly good mood, so I am looking to my Comics to save me. Still feeling blue about losing Adventures of Superman, although I whined about that in my last post. However, I am not at all adverse to flogging a dead horse.
Just had to go and mail an important package at the Post Office, and had to wait fifteen minutes while they all had a two-hour lunch. Then the envelope that I picked was an Express, not a Priority, or possibly the other way around, and all in all, it took me 45 minutes to mail something. On the other hand, the daffodils are coming up and it isn't snowing at the moment, which I suppose counts for something.
Now I've heard that there is a new weekly book coming out from DC, that will take place in a horrible distopian near-future. Why are all futures so horrible? Remember the Legion? I can't stand those snotty Teenagers, but if I remember correctly, things were actually supposed to be pretty good in the future. At leasst they had time to stage fake try-outs in order to humiliate the less-cool kids, and you usually can't do that sort of thing when you are scrounging for your next meal.
But I digress.
I like Weekly Comics. I loved loved Loved, the original 52, with none other than Booster Gold of all people, saving the entire Universe. And Ralph Dibny being sexy. I even read Countdown, which was a lot less interesting, but nevertheless, had its moments. But this new one sounds...pretty horrible. I don't really want to see Superman and Wonder Woman and Batman and others made into creepy robot thingies. So I think that I'll just ignore it this time, and hope that it doesn't show up in the regular books.
What I'd really like, is for Barry to wake up and realize that the entire thing was a dream. I'd go for that!
