Happy 4th of July, Comic Readers!

Independence Day weekend has arrived! Which means you’ll be basking in more barbeques, more beach parties, and possibly blowing your hands up with fireworks. I wouldn’t put it past you if you did.

I’ll be taking a bit of a break as well. The Quick Picks show that normally goes live on Sunday nights will be posted either Monday night or Tuesday morning. Keep an eye out next week post-holiday for more great content – I’ve got a couple of interviews lined up that should be great listens.

One thing I definitely like to do during these breaks is catch up on comics beyond the weekly single issues. There will be two that will be heavily focused upon this weekend:


Superman : Earth One

It has a love/hate relationship right now – you either loved the alternate modern take on the character or you hated the “emo” vibe behind it. Should be interesting to see where I fall in that relationship.


Superman : Last Days of Krypton

Ever since I read Superman Birthright from Mark Waid, I’ve wanted to learn more of the Kryptonian mythology. We know well of what destroyed Krypton, but what life was like before it all went downhill intrigued me. I wanted something like Caprica that explained how we got to Battlestar Galactica (without network executives canning it a season and a half in). This book may do just that. I’m not sure what to expect, but it’s written by Kevin Anderson and he hasn’t failed me yet with his extensive and positive history with the Star Wars extended universe books.

Enjoy your 4th!!
