I'm feeling kind of scummy about buying DC comics after reading the latest Witzke piece. At the same time, all the comics I bought today were DC comics, made by talented creators I want to see succeed. It's like the Chik-Fil-A dilemma.

I've been thinking about this sort of thing all day, because I can't just make an exception the Watchmen stuff. If I'm ignoring comics due to how creators are treated, then I need to take a serious look at my pull list.
Since this is the Now Enjoying thread, I want to say the best thing about the Watchmen hooplah is that some of my favorite critics are doing really thoughtful posts. And the Chris Sprouse drawn issues of Supreme are the greatest.
I've been reading old issues of Glory. It's... troubled work, really.consistency in plot from issue to issue is horrific, the art is Deodato at his worst most of the time and Roger Cruz at his most derivative when it's the crossover one-shots, but this thread is 'now enjoying', so it's worth pointing out that despite all that it's a massive hoot, especially the gender-change issue early on. Just full of enthusiasm and a sense of fun, which a lot of comics seem to lack from that time period.
Watched this the other night on WI. Surprisingly little to do with Star Trek. Also, surprisingly engaging/emotional. I enjoyed it is my point.
Also started watching this on WI the other night. Also enjoyable.
The Time Machine Did It
Also started reading this the other night. It is dangerously funny. Like, I was laughing so hard I was crying and had to stop reading it.
Oh, also took full advantage of that Comixology half-off sale and am neck deep in enjoying The Sixth Gun.
