Waiting for Wednesday, Volume 3, Issue 35

Annnd I'm back. After a wild weekend of Hurricane (then Tropical Storm) Fun, I'm back at the office today--or, at least, for part of today. You see, back at home I still have no electricity, no water, no phone service, and my cell phone can only be used to text message.

Apparently even cell towers managed to collapse in my area. And, when you're I am, well let's just say that text messaging ain't cheap, let me tell you.

Anyway, the point of today's post was supposed to be an introduction to the DC relaunch, which kicks off today with Justice League, issue 1, by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, and Flashpoint, issue 5, from Johns.

Obviously, it's not about that.

Instead, I just want to say this. I'm very happy and very lucky that everyone in my family got through the storm just fine, and the property damage was kept to a minimum.

The basement is on the brink of flooding, however, and only a constant guard of the portable, hilariously out-of-code generator keeps the water at bay. This means filling up the tank every three hours or so, which means no sleeping for yours truly.

Well, okay, I can sleep in three-hour intervals.

But somehow, that feels worse than not sleeping at all. But now, for the next couple hours, at least, I'm back at work and back in the much and mire of pressing (and not moving, despite the fact that the entire state blew up) deadlines.

More on the new DC books probably next week (that's the estimate of when the lights will come back on).

In the meantime, have fun, everyone. Someone around here has to.
