Today should be the day the new Onomatopoeia comes out at CE, and as mentioned elsewhere, Mr. McMillan is the new shining star in our smudgy-colored-paper firmament. Graeme covers the New Comics and dispenses such wisdom as “A stay in Rhode Island may be enough for some to retreat into a catatonic state that deadens the mind and kills all creativity, but luckily Ron Rege, Jr. is no mere mortal,” and “[Wolverine: Origins] is supposed to focus on all of Wolverine’s missing years between Origin and his joining the X-Men, which only narrows the focus down to, what, a hundred years or so? However will they make that last?”
It’s exactly the shot of kickapoo joy juice CEO needs as it heads into its eleventh(!) year of publication. If I have any regrets at all, it’s just that there was a snafu and Peter Wong’s column wasn’t printed (we were this close to having three writers for our newsletter!) But other than that, I’m god-damned delighted and hope Graeme enjoyed the gig enough to do many, many more.
Like I said, if you get the chance, you should stop by the store and pick up a copy. It’s fine reading.
