The Day – 8-1-20
August started out with a nice, quiet day. All I had to do was get the mail and a dozen eggs. Not having to run all over the place made for a good writing day. After lunch and an episode of MI-5, I made it to my desk around 1:30. I managed a solid 6 pages. I’m about a quarter of the way through book 6 which is a good start. Last night I start one of the oldest books in my to be read pile. I bought it years ago when I was going through a comic book novel kick. It’s called The Armor Trap and features, not surprisingly, Iron Man and War Machine. The novel was published in, I think, 1996, the year I graduated high school. I bought it used way after that. It’s so old that Tony Stark is only a millionaire not a billionaire.
Catwoman Vol. 1 Review
Now for my review of the first collection of The New 52 Catwoman. I enjoyed it. It basically showcased Selina’s self-destructive habits and her relationship with Batman who is torn between wanting to save her and stop her. In their two encounters, he let her go both times, though he kept her stolen money. There are some great action scenes. The art is fantastic. The artist, his names escapes me at the moment, really knows how to draw beautiful women. This one’s a definite recommend, especially if you like Catwoman. Even if you don’t, it’s still a fun read.
Finally a preorder update. We cracked 1,000 on The Great Northern War at 1,001. Thanks everyone for your support. I really appreciate it.
Talk to you tomorrow.
