Finished reading Alias (Marvel graphic novel, nothing to do with the TV series.) First, let me get out of the way, it's from the Marvel Max line, which means it's OK to curse. As with any 'adult-oriented' subgroup, they make some questionable choices, but asides from a couple gratuitous ideas (Luke Cage? Noooo...) it was a pretty decent story. A private eye (who happens to be a former superhero) discovers an Avenger's secret identity accidentally. Like Marvels, it has a great viewpoint for how regular people see the world of superheroes around them. OK, this one is decidedly darker. But still.
This afternoon: Closet O' Comics run, then character creation party for Reckoning. Gaming! I am so excited. Meaning something will come up and I won't be able to do it. But anyways.
Tomorrow: theoretically some Heroclix, day off either way.
Tuesday: theoretically, undefined shenanigans.
Wednesday: theoretically, Brickskellering.
