I'm finally settling down to work my way through the entire 4-volume Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus. And the good news is that I can pass it all off as research! :D

I am reading Sweets: A New Orleans Crime Story. It is my local graphic novel club's pick for March. It is beautiful, of course. It is interesting. There are some David Lynch type touches that make the storytelling a little clunky, but people like that stuff so, you know...

Pretty book, interesting and well plotted until the end when it all fell apart. The ending first hits as what the fuck with a strong after taste of that's all!?

I really liked this a lot. Could care less if you can boil water in vibranium or not.

I finished volume 2 a few weeks ago. Not a huge fan of the Jimmy Olsen stories and the Silver-age "I WILL ANNOUNCE EVERY SINGLE THING I THINK AND DO AS I THINK AND DO IT" stuff took some getting used to for me, but there's a lot of good stuff in there - especially volume 2.

It was also interesting reading volume 1 and 2 after having read Final Crisis, which was my only previous exposure to most of these characters.

That volume has issues 1-5 or 1-10? I'd say the first 5 issues are the best, then after issue 6 the story loses some of its strength ...

Oh, that's the good stuff then. I especially liked the flashbacks. Steve Rogers sure had a difficult childhood.

The shield boiling water is clue number one in a long string of clues that will eventually prove that my theory about this series has been correct since the start.

What's your theory about it?

Well, originally my theory was thateverything that happened to Cap during his time in Dimension Z was only happening in his mind and was all part of an elaborate illusion that was created by Arnim Zola to keep Cap occupied while Cap was still strapped to a table or hooked up to some piece of equipment in his lab. Now it has evolved to the point where I think it's entirely possible thatthe Cap that returned from Dimension Z with Jet Black isn't the same Cap that went in. A big part of the Dimension Z story is about Zola's work in genetics and we were all paying attention to his children and his mutants while Remender was waving them at us, not considering the possibility that there was something entirely different happening behind our backs.

I have a few theories as well.

1) Remender doesn't know what vibranium is
2) Remender has never read what the properties of vibranium are
3) Remender has a different definition of "indestructible shield" than we do.
4) Remender really, REALLY loves boiled water
5) It was all a dream. Dimension Z never actually existed.

I just got this baby in the mail:

I think I've read less than half of the stories, and that would have been 20+ years ago.
Nostalgia, don't fail me now!!

This has been such a good day for me. I found 20 bucks in an old jacket plus I received a box from MyComicShop.com

The box has over 50 comics that I had ordered in August 2013 . MyComicShop had already refunded me for the comics last year, so now it's like I have cash and comics.

Isn't this the best day ever?
