Man, we have a lot of snow and ice here in Columbus, O! It was minus-one degree when I took this picture. And I’ve got a lot of blogging to catch up on, but between finishing MSoE #4, doing interviews, and getting ready to ship our booth out to the New York Comic-con, I’m way behind. Here are this week's Shazam web links:
This photo appeared earlier in the week on CBR’s blog. It is Brooklyn teacher Joe Rice’s students holding up their Shazam comics. The blog is full of great pictures of the kids reading. If this doesn’t warm your heart, you’re a member of the Monster Society for sure! Check it out.
An interview at Broken Frontier. This is the interview that I took the picture for of a Golden Age Captain Marvel comic folded up in my pocket.
New York Magazine put out their Approval Matrix for this week. Somehow, the release of Shazam! MSoE #1 ranked as an event on their cultural calendar. It was brought to my attention by Melissa Bloomfield, who lives in NYC and works at Scholastic. She describes the feature this way: “New York Magazine is a weekly magazine and “The Approval Matrix” is a regular feature which is a snarky analysis of the week’s events. They call it ‘our deliberately oversimplified guide to who falls where on our taste hierarchies’.”
My favorite mention on the Matrix was “Hot for Grandpa!” referring to the announcement that David Lee Roth would be touring with Van Halen this summer. Click here to see the whole Approval Matrix!
Thanks, everyone for all the kind words and support for MSoE #1.
The second issue, Shazam! Monster Society of Evil #2 will be coming out February 28, which is only two weeks away!
