I decided to finally clean up my Superman bulletin board this afternoon. The copyright states the year as 1979. I used to have a Aquaman bulletin board from the same year but it was trashed several years ago. I have been using for almost thirty years. I have a Supergirl stamp pinned to the Superman bulletin board.

According to SDCC '08 - Mike Grell: The Return of Warlord, an ongoing series from DC Comics will start in 2009. Next year marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of the fantasy character. I enjoyed the original series but did not care much for the revival by Bart Sears and Bruce Jones in 2006. The new series will be done by the Warlord's creator, Mike Grell.
I went out of town to do some clothing shopping today since I needed some dress clothes. I will be attending a cousin's wedding in a few months. While I did not buy any comic books, I did manage to pick up the following Batman goodies:
Another bag of Batman Reese's Pieces promoting The Dark Knight movie
I found all four of the Batman Pez that includes the Riddler, the Joker, Batman and Two-Face
The Dark Knight novel by Dennis O'Neil
Bonus picture: My copy of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight novels by Dennis O'Neil side by side (the first book was $4.88 while the second was $7.99).
I went to see The Dark Knight this evening at the local theater. Heath Ledger was good as the Joker and Christian Bale was good as Bruce Wayne aka Batman again. Maggie Gyllenhaal was a much better choice for Rachel.
What made The Dark Knight for me was Gary Oldman as James Gordon and Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent. Having Gordon receive his promotion from a Lieutenant to the Commisioner was great to see. I liked how we got to see both sides of Dent. Kudos to the make up crew that worked on Two-Face.
My biggest problem with the movie was the sound. Sure, the explosions and music were loud but the voices seemed really low. The sound problem was evident especially in the first half of the movie. Even my sister noticed it so it was not just me.
