    That is one amazing granny! It made me think about something, too: I'm not sure any of my maternal grandmother's grandchildren were born within wedlock. (Mathematically it's unlikely I was, I've just never cared to ask.)

    The Flash #21: Holy shit, this is good! Part two of "The Button" is filled with great characterization for Barry and Bruce, sets up a lot of questions and teasers, and ends on a killer cliffhanger. I also cannot believe how much I've come around on Howard Porter. He nails every page.

    It wasn't until this past January, when we had a joint birthday party celebrating my Gram's 83rd, my cousin's 45th, and my 39th, that I finally did the math and realized how young she was she first became a grandmother. (In fact, doing it again reveals she was 38, so I'm older than she was. Huh.)

    Yeah, my folks were 19 (Mom) and 18 (Dad) when I was born.
    I also recently realized my maternal grandma was my age when her first grandson was born.

    I miss those. It truly made reading interconnected books so much easier.

    The other day, I realized that I am presently as old as my dad was when he took me out for my 21st birthday.

    And it began 10 years ago today.

    Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #2: Nancy has begun to show her hand, yet the mystery grows. Very well-crafted.

    HA! He does, doesn't he?!

    No comment on Michaela Coel, because I don't know her as an actor, but that clip from Nerdist felt like a paid advertisement from Netflix.
    EDIT: That said, having just watched this clip from Chewing Gum, I think she'd make a very fun Doctor.

    Super Sons #3: Another strong, funny look at these two.
    Nick Fury #1 (2017): You have my attention. This is a one-off story that will clearly lead to something bigger as the series plays out. But that's not why you're going to love this one; it's the art by ACO that will bring you in, hook you, and keep your attention. When a book consists mostly of double-page spreads, you can pretty much rest assured you'll spend only a few minutes reading it. Nick Fury #1 is quite the opposite, however, as it is overflowing with beautiful details, truly cinematic action, and cool character designs. It's Jim Steranko meets JH Williams III, yet entirely its own beast. And that's with much thanks to Rachelle Rosenberg's colors. She brings a rarely seen pastel color palette to the comic, giving it a truly exotic look for a modern mainstream action book.

    Yup, there was a six-part series called Star Trek / Green Lantern: Spectrum War which was released last year. Star Trek / Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds is a direct sequel.

    We spoke for about 30 minutes over coffee, during which she revealed much frustration and rage.
