This Week in Comics
Seven Devils all around you. Seven Devils in your house.
... has returned, again. Minus Jim Shooter and being published on their own, unlike the arrangement with Dark Horse, which floundered. This relaunch looks different: more reliable creative teams, a publishing strategy, and some smart folks working behind the scenes. They're launching one ongoing title per month for the first 4 months. The 90's Valiant titles were popular, and there were some good storylines mixed in with all the variant covers. I think they're launching at a good time, and this is going to do well. The first title being launched is X-O MANOWAR. Regular cover is available for pre-order here, Pullbox Variant is available for pre-order here.
I'm in the middle..
... of drafting my first fantasy baseball league. I do 3 or 4 each year. This particular league has a number of challenges due to format and strategy. Right now I'm torn between Desmond Jennings, Brett Gardner and getting a 2b. I got sniped on Emilio Bonafacio, and I'm hoping Lucas Duda makes it back around to me. I don't think many of you are even still reading this far, but thanks to those of you that are. :)
