About to crack open the Blackest Night Omni. All prep reading done across both GL and GLC.
Crazy how many crises already happened only to shift right into I guess this big one.

Good stuff though, across both lines.

Damn, what a comic to lead the OT with. Excited for Curse of White Knight #1. First comic to have something important to say since White Knight #1.

Read (partially) through Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me. Lovely art and subject matter but I had to kinda skip the middle 50% or so of the book cause I couldn't deal with the angst and it was a bit too long. (I think I might also be out of the target age range for the book)... Would have made for a brilliant 2 issue comic though.

Also pushed myself through The Structure is Rotten, Comrade. I have not clue what happened. Either my reading comprehension flew out of the window or I don't have the required Socio-Political/Historical/Architectural knowledge to understand it or it was a bunch of drivel.

I spent this entire Sunday reading through the entirety of Mark Waid's Irredeemable. It was pretty good except for Waid's treatment of Volt. Fuck Qubit
