I've been busy. Joined Second Life out of curiosity since it came up at work, then spent 3 hours working on my avatar's appearance. I don't know what to do now after having completed the tutorials on Orientations Island, but that's how I burned off a few hours over the weekend. I'm Shelly Umarov on Second Life, if anyone cares.
And I've been crafting and reading and really trying to get through the 2 foot-tall high each stacks and not getting very far. But I did read Mystery in Space 5-7 and am still enjoying it. I'm getting rather fond of the Weird and I was surprised by Comet not being Comet. I'm looking forward to the endgame on this one.
Green Lantern 18 would've been just fine without that hideous costume for Star Sapphire. I like Acuna's art, even if most of the characters look alike, but even he couldn't make that costume palatable. I really like Cowgirl. Her conversation with Hal in Pancho's was wonderfully real. But I found the transformation in the plane when the Star Sapphire takes over Carol in the plane she's flying. Who the heck is the naked woman, the one who says, "Where?" just before Carol goes out of the plane? And I have to say, the pink Star Sapphire costume looks better on a brunette than the blond Cowgirl. The Tales of the Sinestro Corps was disappointing. I was expecting current stories, not one character telling a story to another.
Crossing Midnight 5
In which Kai learns that one should be careful what one wishes for, or at least, should be very specific. At any rate, he saved his father and the intrigue deepens. I don't think I can adequately express the joy of this book. I don't read many non-superhero books, so for me, this is my main chance at something different.
