shiny!

Forbidden Planet International, who have been running Pádraig’s interviews with such noteables as Alan Moore and Todd Klein over the past few months, have been exceedingly good enough to grace me with a posting about Chance this week.

And, at Comics Bulletin, a very nice review of issue #1.

(As a matter of fact, yes, my life *is* all about the comic book right now. Why do you ask?)

Best Chance commentary so far :)

My friend Stella hit the comic shop with her 6 year old son today:

Walking into Source Games, for Robin, was like walking into Paradise. A whole wall of action figures (yes, I know we grown-ups call them ’scale models’ or ‘figurines’, but call a spade a spade, ok?) done up in Steampunkly glory. A neon SUPERMAN sign. Comic books on all the walls.

So we collect comic books first, and I pretty much grab everything non-Spiderman that says “Marvel Adventures” on it, then grab 2 copies of TAKE A CHANCE. Robin looks at me funny, so I’m explaining to him that I know the author.

“She’s the lady who used to send us fudge from Alaska at Christmas,” I tell him.

Robin eyeballs the cover with his best dubious look. “She doesn’t look like a lady who makes fudge. Where is her spatula?”

*laughs and laughs and LAUGHS* :) :) :)
