My superhero nerd upbringing demands I love this picture: I always feel like if I just squint hard enough I’ll see Daredevil and Bullseye (as drawn by Miller & Janson) bounding from one level to the next.
Yes, a judicious use of vacation time from my workplace means that Edi and I are once again in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this time for the month of February. The flight down was long (thanks to a layover in DC going from two hours to five) and mildly arduous, but it’s great to be down here, basking in the hot summer air.
So you may not hear from me for the next month, maybe? I may post as I make the rounds of the various comic book shops, and/or if I feel cocky enough to write reviews of books I read before leaving that aren’t with me now. But, on the other hand, it seems slightly more likely that the missus and I will be too busy soaking in the sun and porteno culture for me to spend too much time on the blogger interface. So far, the only fun bit of comix knowledge I can relate is that the girl on our flight down had a lovely tattoo on her arm that was a panel from Goodbye, Chunky Rice. Perhaps that’s an omen, and I’ll find more comix related material down here than I’m planning on.
Anyhoo, I’ll be reading, if not posting, and spending my time looking at the rooftops, daydreaming…
