  1. Thank you for the reminder that I should check out more Girlfrenzy(!) I don't really think of it as an event or a series, in fact the only 2 I own, The Mist & Tomorrow Woman I do so because I bought their parent titles off the rack at the time (so I'm checking in with these at a full cover price).

    You sound sufficiently penitent for having not read much Starman, but The Mist issue had much of the same flavor. One of the things I love about that series was James Robinson's use of one-off stories to continue to weave the tapestry that was his Opal City saga. The Mist, while not essential reading, certainly provided a few new threads in what I still consider one of my favorite comics runs of all time.

    Very enjoyable listen, Professor!

    1. Thanks, Mark! I have found that a lot of these 5th-week events produced better stories than I would have expected.

      And yes, Starman is definitely on the "get to eventually" list

  2. Whoa whoa who, wait a second... there's ANOTHER Further Adventure of U.S. 1 that I completely missed reading and doing a writeup for!?

    [stay tuned]
