I am still here.  I have a new, albeit short, episode recorded, and it will be out soon.  If not sooner, look for it on Halloween.  I recently got a new computer, and I am trying to improve my recording sound quality.  We'll see how that goes.  In the meantime, here's a trailer for something interesting:

I had never heard of this 1994 short film until today.  I have to admit that it's pretty awful.  Nevertheless, here it is...

I present to you a photo taken at the Baltimore Comic Con of Stan Lee and me.  There were two other friends in the picture, but I cropped them out just in case they didn't want their images out there.  If you want to see the full picture, find me on Facebook.

First, I wanted to let listeners know that I am still here and recording.  July has been a challenging month for personal matters. 

Second, I wanted to relate a personal best.  Last month (June), I set myself another 100 comics reading goal, and actually hit 142.  To my knowledge, this is the most I've ever read in a month.

Finally, the 5th anniversary of The Comic Book Attic is approaching, and this time, I want to put together a big episode (which for me means about an hour).  This may actually end up being the next episode, so look for it on or around August 11.
