Oh boy, I missed The Hour on Wednesday. For some reason, I had to record Gameshow Marathon. Hey, it’s the Price Is Right and I grew up watching it.
On Tuesday night, I went to the Canadian Museum of Civlization for CBC’s Foreign Correspondent Forum. It was great and informative. I just hope I am not shown in the crowd for tonight’s airing on CBC Newsworld. I was able to get Peter Mansbridge’s signature. I wanted to ask him about George Strumbo, but I couldn’t think of a question linking to George. I only asked him if he uses an iPod and he does. LOL
I missed Wednesday’s edition of The Hour and George talked to Adrienne Arsenault as part of CBC’s Foreign Correspondents Week. Damn, I missed it.
Comic picks for me are Runaways #16, Ultimate Fantastic Four #30 and Superman/Batman #26(got 2 copies, I hope my friend is not reading this blog)
Plus, I picked up Son of #6 for my friend as well.
What’s special about Superman/Batman #26? Well, it’s a tribute to a boy who passed away in 2005. It was Jeph Loeb’s son, Sam. He had a 3 year battle with cancer. I know I have been talking to an employee at The Comic Book Shoppe and he told he’s not really a big fan of Jeph Loeb(for non comic fans, he did Teen Wolf starring Michael J. Fox) because his storytelling is awful. I never knew that Jeph Loeb is an awful writer. I kept that thought for so long with the notion that he is a bad writer. His son wrote a story featuring Robin and Superboy, but he was not able to finish it up because of his illness from cancer. What I liked about that issue is that it features 26 people on the comic. 11 writers and 15 artists on it to help finish Sam Loeb’s story. It was a nice and fitting story. I won’t criticize or be negative on it, I bought for what it’s worth, the notion of reading for enjoyment.
I hope my friend will understand it when I give him that issue. Don’t worry about the money and etc. Just keep it. No matter what, I am still getting you some comics as a surprise before you leave to Beantown, I mean B-Town, I mean BosSox Nation, I totally mean Boston.
