"Post No. 561"

Got in copies of the DC-Vertigo limited series, Greatest Hits #'s 1 & 2 (as well as an extra issue of No.1 with with a variation cover),

Although this hasn't received (thus far) the best of reviews, I personally thought it pretty good, and if you click onto the link above it'll give you a better inkling of this series. Both issues of 1 & 2 contained various "Beatles references" (all of which I've already listed on my "Beatles & Bizarros" blog posts); each of the four central characters to the storyline represent different Beatles as well as vague representations of various superheroes.

So far, only the first two issues are out, but it's a six-issue series and I definately plan to obtain the set.

"In other news...", my mother's youngest sister came down for a visit from where she lives near Indianapolis last week and stayed a few days. She was telling me how my second cousin (her late daughter's oldest son) is now into collecting. He's wanting those superhero drinking glasses that Pepsi came out with a good 25 years ago (which had the like of Batman, Superman, The Riddler, the Flash, Wonder Woman, Shazam!, etc.on them), plus he's now collecting comic books. With a name like "Thor", he outta be! So I'm going to dig thru all the boxes I have around here of modern dup's and set him up with a bunch he might like; just waiting for him to send me either a want list or a list of titles he enjoys. It's always a "kick" for me to help a fledgling comic book collector (although the poor kid really doesn't know what he's getting himself into, huh?)

It's supposed to turn pretty clilly around here especially at night in S-Central, KY. tomorrow, so I went down and removed and put up my mom's water hose this evening after work, turned off the water to the outside faucet and wrapped it for her, then came home and did some Winterizing around this old place as well, removing and storing my own water hose, wrapping the outside hydrant, putting up boards in front of the crawl-space area to the underneath of the house, etc. Still need to cover the air conditioner with a tarp', then that'll have most of it finished. I expect a cold and snowey Winter this time (although I always hope that I'll be wrong).

I gave Greatest Hits #1 a positive review at PopSyndicate, for what that's worth, and am prepared to do the same for #2 as soon as I can get my lazy ass in gear and finish the new review column...

Yeah, what I've seen of this series so far I've liked pretty good!
