Black Lantern Computer = no reviews

My computer decided a couple weeks ago that instead of letting me continue to simply review comics involving Black Lanterns, that it would do its own impersonation of a Black Lantern:

It died, and when it was “resurrected” by means of a new hard drive, certainly pulled the “mess-with-someone’s-emotions” bit with reinstallation of an OS and loss of a couple years’ worth of data.

So, while I may cobble together a handful of posts to close out the year, and for Blackest Night #6 (using an old mac laptop), reviews in general are on hold for the duration of my current computer problems.

A nostalgic return

In this morning’s newspaper, found an ad insert for Ollie’s.  Glancing through it, spotted this on the third page. Nothing overly notable about it…except that I can’t remember the last time I saw an ad like this for comics…it’s been probably 15 years or so, though.

Homage Noticed – Flash: Rebirth #1 / Blackest Night: The Flash #1

This week’s cover to Blackest Night: The Flash #1 seemed somehow familiar, beyond the usual familiarity from ads. Once I got to thinking, I realized why: it’s an homage piece reflecting Flash: Rebirth #1. I definitely enjoy such covers when done well–as this one certainly is.
