Sometimes when I listen to First we take Manhattan it reminds me of Batman...
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
I'd really like to live beside you, baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes

What are the chances that on the same day we have Lois Lane and Alfred in Batman suits.

Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces.

+ I'm years behind on reading Fables. Finally managed to read Fables Vol. 10: The Good Prince and it was such a fantastic, positive and happy volume I'm besides myself about it. So good.
I backed this.
That's a funny line Lieutenant Gordon.
From The Walking Dead #117. Can't wait to see this asshole show up on the TV show.
And I'm working at trying to find a kind of language where I won't be so easily modulated by expectation.
For a long time I've been debilitated in bed. Thinking too much. Sometimes not enough.
There's a rain cloud above me. Like all the good days have come and gone and now there is nothingness.
Q: How about for other comics you've done?
A. All-Star Superman was like being a Buddhist for the entire period of writing that because I was thinking like Superman and reading all this hopeful, inspiring stuff. He's very different from Batman. Superman sort of elevates you when you're writing him and makes you think to a higher degree, and Batman makes you paranoid.

“The most peculiar thing for me about returning to ‘Sandman’ is how familiar it all feels,” Mr. Gaiman said. What is new, however, is the level of attention. “When I was writing ‘Sandman’ from 1987 to 1996, I never had the feeling at any point that approximately 50 million people were looking over my shoulder scrutinizing ever word.” (Mr. Gaiman has about two million followers on Twitter.)
For the six-issue “The Sandman: Overture,” Mr. Gaiman has been paired with J.H. Williams III, an illustrator known for his moody imagery and innovative page layouts. “They are the most beautiful pages I have ever seen in periodical comics,” Mr. Gaiman said. “I ask him to do the impossible, and he gives me back more than I asked for.”
[ BIRTHRIGHT ]
One of my favorite Superman moments in comics is in this book. Superman manages to record a message letting his parents know that he made it to earth just fine and they see it just before Krypton blows up around them.
