On the Fritz

I’d hoped to spend a pretty good chunk of the weekend working on the past week’s comics reviews, but alas, fate and my crappy Internet connection conspired against me. There are two things you should always remember about free apartment wireless: (1) You get what you pay for, and (2) You’re paying for NOTHING.

To put it another way, expect light blogging for a while until I can scrabble together the funds for an Internet connection that doesn’t conk out every weekend.

Oh, a review? Sure, why not?


Shazam! The Monster Society of Evil #4

Well, that’s one manly cover, ain’t it?

The grand conclusion of Jeff Smith’s retro-cool series is everything you’d want and more. You’ve got Billy Batson fighting off armies of cockroaches, a nasty new version of Mr. Mind, Dr. Sivana being a complete heel, and the world’s largest Captain Marvel punching holes in giant robots.

Verdict: Thumbs up. If you don’t have this, get it — or wait for the collected edition, which should be coming out pretty soon.
