Just wanted to let listeners know that all is well.  March has been one of the most intensely busy months I've weathered at work.  An entire week could pass without my computer even getting powered on.  I have, however, been able to record bits while driving that can be put together later.  April looks a lot more relaxed, and I'll have some time off to podcast.

Comic Book Attic Extra #1

Just a quick update of where I've been.  Also, some thoughts on some comics I no longer buy.  Check out The Cinematic Attic.  (10:17)

The cover pic with this episode is of a comic book adaptation I bought recently.  You could consider the clash between my two hobbies, as mentioned in the podcast, a clash of titans.
