It's Supergirl!

Sterling Gates is a friend of mine.  He graduated at OU then went out to LA to make his mark in the film world.  Instead, he ended up associated with Geoff Johns, one of DC Comics' best writers.  A while after that, Sterling took over the scripting chores of Supergirl and is taking her through great trials and adventures.

Sterling's first graphic novel (without other writers) is now on sale.  Do yourself a favor and pick it up.  Lots of libraries are carrying graphic novels now, so you'll probably find it there soon.  The story is a blast and Sterling's take on the character is fresh and invigorating.  Jamal Igle is a dream as an artist -- every panel is awesome.

For my review, go here.

Now For Something Different!

I grew up reading Doc Savage, and while looking for cellphone wallpaper, I tripped across a site that offers fantasy Doc Savage covers and couldn't resist sharing.


Engage imagination.

Alex Rider Is Back!

And I can't wait. It'll be out next week, and it looks like my favorite fourteen year old British spy is going to be neck deep in trouble. If you haven't ever read this series before, you're in for a treat. Alex works for MI-6 and gets assigned to the most dangerous missions despite his age. But he has a knack for saving his life as well as knocking down the bad guys.

Great Cover!
Another great cover that caused me to order the book. And the synopsis sounds really interesting too!

Currently Reading With My Son
I thought I'd poison my 12 year old's mind with romantic nonsense that I grew up on. It's working pretty well with this one, one of my favorite books. But reading with my wife in bed with us doesn't work out so well. Her cynical side shows up to blast us into the real world. :)
