The temperature is actually 34 degrees here in lovely snow-covered New England. We're having a heat wave!
My Kitchen is finally finished! Mostly. A few small touches here and there, and they are still working on the butler's pantry, and converting the old kitchen into the new family room. But it is usable, the appliances have been installed, along with the island and the cabinets and the counters, and the totally frivolous Victorian Over-mantel has been put back over the fireplace...and it looks simply amazing.
I'm just so happy! Cold...but happy.
And strange and bizarre things seem to be brewing at DC this spring. Following Convergence, will apparently come Divergence, wherein, the new 52 will be transmogrified into something...else. I know not what. But I am intrigued, nevertheless.
They are going to lose some of the Green Lantern books, and have regular Green Lantern and Green Lantern: Lost Army, whatever that may be, and apparently Sinestro is still going to be hanging around.
Batman and Robin is going to become Robin, Son of Batman, drawn AND written by Pat Gleason, so I will surely be picking that up.
There is going to be a Martian Manhunter book. Finally! Secret Six will continue, along with Gotham Academy. Superman and Wonder Woman is going to be written by Pete Tomasi and drawn by Doug Mahnke, so I will finally have to pick that up as well. The Finches continue to destroy Wonder Woman in her own book, so that will so stay off of my list.
But what really intrigues me, are some rather bizarre books...Bat-Mite, Prez and Section Eight. Bat-Mite looks pretty silly, not sure about Prez, but I'm glad that it will exist, but the thought of Garth Ennis and John McCrea getting back together on Section Eight just fills me with joy. Dog-Welder! Bueno Excellente! Oh, it will be horrifying and hilarious!
Over at Marvel, for some misbegotten reason, they have decided to resurrect Secret Wars. It wasn't particularly great the first time, and it was seriously terrible the second time, and for some reason, I doubt that the third time is going to be the charm. What does worry me, is what is it going to do for the few books that I happen to love, such as Hawkeye, Ms Marvel, Daredevil and Squirrel Girl? Oh, and Loki. They're weird, they're wacky, and I adore them. Why can't I have nice things?
So, it's going to be...interesting to say the least.
