The Day – 8-6-20
I had a busy morning yesterday. Mostly follow up doctor stuff. I got a relatively early start and made a beautiful drive over the mountains. It felt more like early fall than the first week of August. The hikers were out in full force. I counted over twenty cars between two trail heads. It looked like everyone had their masks as they stood around talking in small, distanced groups. So at least they’re doing their part to follow the rules.
On the way home, a doe and her fawn ran across the road in front me. Happily I saw them on the side and had plenty of time to stop and let them pass. With everything else I’ve got going on, the last thing I need is to hit a deer.
After a nice lunch and an episode of MI-5, I made it to my writing desk about 1:30 and managed 5 pages.
Just as an aside, on MI-5 they killed off one of the characters I liked and brought back one I hated. Not ideal, but there’s only 4 seasons left, so hopefully they bring in some appealing new faces.
The New Guardians Vol. 1 Review
This is the fourth book in the Green Lantern section of The New 52. This one follows Kyle Rainer, one of the newer Green Lanterns from Earth. It starts when one of each of the other corps’ rings come flying to him with a member of their respective corps ready to kill him and reclaim the stolen ring. Kyle, unfortunately, has no idea why the rings came to him and tried to give them back with no success. Eventually, he convinces the others that he didn’t take the rings on purpose and they work together to investigate what really happened.
As usual, I won’t give away too much of the plot. I really enjoyed this one as well. The art was also gorgeous, right up there with The Red Lantern Corp. This one is a recommend.
We’ll end with a preorder update. The Great Northern War as 1,133 preorder with 8 days to go. Thanks everyone for your support.
Talk to you tomorrow.
