Blackest Night Annotations Done

Blackest Night 01Finished the annotations for Blackest Night – you can find the link on the right hand side.

There’s one or two things I’d like to add in – not least of which is a new version of the character map / reading order that I compiled on the old site.

Now, do I drag over the Final Crisis notes next or do I actually annotate something new…?

Blackest Night Issues Being Done

Blackest Night 01Busy transferring the annotations for Blackest Night from the old site to the new one.

I wonder if I can get the time off for religious observance…?

So the other morning, I’m wandering around one of our local shops, thinking of picking the nephew up something super-hero related – he’s only just turned 3 so he’s not too choosy. While I’m a DC man at heart, Marvel merchandise is everywhere so that limits my choices, but one thing caught my eye:

Hulk and Marvel's Hawkeye

It’s a two pack of the Hulk and Hawkeye – but what caught my eye was the labelling at the bottom of the pack:
