Cloudie gets her geek on.

I went to the comics shop yesterday.

VERY cool cover. Nico (I'm sorry, Sister Grimm is just NOT a good codename) looks very cool and scary on the cover. I loved how everyone was panicking about what to do over Chase to get him to breathe again -- they're very much kids. Good writing. And now for a big old WHAT THE FUCK!?!?! over the ending and Alex! OMG, Alex! Really? Alex? Wow. Actually did not see that one coming.

Spider-Man! And Jen contacts him using a "Spider-signal"! *dies* And filing suit against JJJ! SO AWESOME! Plus, perfectly understandable consequences for Peter. Loved the convo between Peter and MJ about how he would use the money (Peter: "Yeah! A Spider-cave! With a Spider-mobile!" MJ: "You already had a Spider-mobile." Peter: "Well...A better one! And a giant Spider-Man Robot! And..." MJ: *sigh*) Peter is cute. The scene of Peter on the stand saying that JJJ didn't like him because he was black? SO FUNNY! Loved the shape-shifting process server and the superspeedster courier. The only weakness was the ending -- it could have been better. Anyway, I'm REALLY enjoying this series.

Yes, today's reading was Marvel stuff, tomorrow I start on the DC pile. *rubs hands together in glee* Whee! Comics!

You know, I wonder if we're going to see any of the Runaways characters elsewhere in the Marvel Universe after the series is over next issue? I don't think we will, actually. DC did something similar (kinda, sorta, not really) with Devin Grayson's Relative Heroes, and I don't think we've ever seen the Weinbergs in regular continuity again. Hmm. Well, we'll see.

Also, what is up with the new Firestorm!!?!?!???!? Dude, The Fury of Firestorm the Nuclear Man was one of my favorite comics, and now... huh? What does this guy have to do with the old Firestorm at all? Sure, we're only two issues in, so maybe they'll explain, but. Well. I miss the old Firestorm...

    Yuletide finished and uploaded! Didn't hit 10k, but still more words than usual. Would have finished it last weekend except there was an emergency…

  • Yuletide Started!

    I did 1.3k words today! A whole month before the thing is even due! This is literally unprecedented! It's just the first scene done so far, but yay!…
