I spent most of the morning watching parades before working on a Mickey Mouse puzzle. We had an early dinner so we can snack on leftovers later. I wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving Day this year.

Cool news for Vertigo fans: AMC Orders Pilot For 'Preacher' Series. I would much rather watch this than a spin off of The Walking Dead.

Man of Steel Black Spiral Notebook

I actually found this Man of Steel black spiral notebook at the local Walmart's yesterday afternoon for a dollar. It was the only one that they had left and I had never seen it at the store before. I call it black because that's the major color with some splashing of white and red. I do like the red plastic spiral but I wonder how it would hold up to all the abuse a school kid would put it through like stacking heavy text books on it. Superman looks very angry and he may have just used his heat vision.

Here is the front cover:

There will even be a crossover mini-series featuring the four called The Defenders. Looks like I may have to subscribe to Netflix in 2015.

Women Wednesday: Dancing Wonder Woman

Shame that this video featuring a dancing Wonder Woman on Vivo doesn't have the original soundtrack but it's interesting to watch her walk like an Egyptian:

Hourman Coming To TV

I can actually see Hourman from DC Comics getting his own tv show: The CW's bringing another DC character to TV (one you'd never expect). This might open the gate to other lesser known characters getting their own shows.

Halloween Results

We only had ten little, kids come knocking on our door in a two hour span this Halloween. I gave them each two pieces of treats since I was expecting more tricksters. None showed up after an hour of waiting so I turned off the lights, let the dog out and put the treats in the refrigerator (Kit Kats were already melting). To be fair, a high school ballgame was going on last night which prevented many parents going out with their youngsters. I also learned this morning that the businesses on Main Street were giving out candy from three to five on Halloween. The local Fish and Games was doing the same. A co-worker that lives about two blocks away only had two little, kids. Last year we had twenty-five and the year before that was thirty or so. This was the worst year for tricksters asking for treats that I can remember.
