THE DAY HAS ARRIVED, MY FRIENDS!
It’s no secret: I was OBSESSED with Batman: White Knight. I wrote about how brilliant it was, which Sean Murphy was kind enough to share:
It’s been a rough time trying to plan out some farther from home adventures, a big part of it being the struggle with chronic illness and trying to function like normal. Hence why there wasn’t a trip to the Superman Celebration this year, and instead a trip to the hospital.
BUT! Fear not.
I’m planning a trip. A proper trip. Finally.
I was recently contacted by an Australian company called Geek X about their new line of licensed DC collectibles, and asked if I’d share some of their upcoming preorders. And man, they have some beautiful stuff on the way!
It’s New Comic Book Day, and I’m here with a new review and recommendation.
DCEASED #1 is here, and maaaan, I’ve been excited for this one.
Info about the creatives involved:
By Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine, Stefano Gaudiano, James Harren, Rain Beredo, Saida Temofonte, and Ben Abernathy.

We have encountered a major problem within the community of geekery. My fellow nerds and my fandoms were once a safe escape from the rest of the world. When the jerks of the world were making it hard to get through the day, I could turn to my fictional escapes, and to my friends – online and in real life – that shared the same passions. I could turn to Instagram or Twitter or wherever. I remember being excited for new adaptations of comics or books or games, whatever, just because I had a new version of something I cared about to enjoy.
But things have been going downhill for a while now, and not just for me.
It’s my two big con weekends. This weekend I have Planet Comic Con in Kansas City, MO and then the next weekend I have Wizard World St Louis. Aside from Super Con at the Superman Celebration and any small comic shows I may do locally, this is pretty much it for me and cons, this year. So, I’m pretty excited about two weekends of nerdy goodness.
