Out and About, and Comics

Rather than post up the report from Friday night's game of Airship Pirates, I spent the afternoon out with spross hunting down some dice. The dice were for me to run Airship Pirates, as I needed a whole batch of black six-sided dice to use as the Black Dice for the game (appropriate colour, no?).

Once we purchased the dice that we wanted, and didn't find some of the other stuff that we went looking for, we stopped off for some time at the Comic Book Shoppe, as I wanted to see what was going on with the end of the current DC Universe, before they (re-)boot it into this new thing that they're planning. I was pleased to see the way they've ended the run of the Legion of Super-Heroes main title, although to be honest, the demise of Adventure Comics and the Legion Academy stories there was not handled well, and to be honest, when the LSH titles relaunch in September, I'm not sure how I'm going to react to the storytelling and all. I'll be dropping a few titles here and there, with the demise of some of my favourite comics, including the Justice Society of America titles, and am not happy about that.

To be honest, I'm not sure how successful DC Comics will be with this whole event in the aftermath of Flashpoint, but I'll continue reading my Legion titles for sure. (We've seen worse periods for the Legion in the history of DC Comics and the changes to their lines, so I'll stick with them and see where they go with the comics this time around.)

In the meantime, I still have all my Legion of Super-Heroes comics that I can re-read, remember the days when comics were actually good and writers had an idea of what the heck they were doing.
