I suppose there are some cops out there who are are like, “You know what? Forgot protecting people. I wish I had a job where I could express myself however I wanted, whenever I wanted, and thousands of people would love it, week after week after week.” Grass is always greener, eh?
Comics-reading peeps: Uncanny Avengers #2, Invincible #98, and the latest Animal Man and Swamp Thing “Rotworld” issues have all been particularly good. The kind of comics that stick in your imagination long after you’re done reading them. If you haven’t been following these books, I’d recommend grabbing a few back issues (so like invincible 95, the beginning of Rotworld, whatever) and catching up. The first issue of Uncanny Avengers I thought was a little meh, but #2 was much better. All of these books are some of the best super-hero work I’ve read in a while.
