One more thing: The Ollie Queen story has been an outright firestorm. So far, 30 comments (about six or so by me) in 24 hours! It’s been great to have such an intelligent discussion with input from so many individuals. I just want you all to understand that, after about 5PM Friday, no more comments …
I’m heading out for the weekend. In case you’ve all noticed the long absences and grumpiness, it’s like this. In the space of two short weeks, my mom has a birthday (today), my parents move into their new home (tomorrow), my dad retires from preaching (had a party last weekend, but it’s officially next week) …
Hey, one of our readers, Chris Booth of City Hall, appears to be part of a comedy team. Cool! I bet these guys are really, seriously super-funny. I mean… well… OK, Chris hasn’t said anything funny yet, and there isn’t anything actually funny on the web site, but I’m sure they’re a riot. So, go …
A belated hearty congratulations to our friend Joshua Elder for this Wednesday’s debut of his new book, Mail Order Ninja. I even missed the chance to plug Josh’s announcement and seven page preview! Mea culpa, Josh.

Thief!” The thief is running ahead of him with an armful of groceries …
I was reading through Beau Smith’s new column extolling the virtues of the DC Showcase / Marvel Essentials and it hit me that I’m only seven days away from having in my hot little hands the book that I have dreamed of for ten years: Showcase Presents: Elongated Man. The fact that this book actually …
You probably know a lot of these “Things You Don’t Know About Superman” because you’re much more informed than the readership this article is aimed at. But I was surprised to read about the two cameos in the movie.
For a character created by two Jewish kids as a “Moses from outer space,” Superman certainly seems to inspire Christian allegories. I just spotted the brand new book “The Gospel According To The World’s Greatest Superhero” and it points out that the Kents were originally named Joseph and Mary, so at least some of this …
His new movie is causing a sensation. He’s flying in to save the world from an evil scientist. But no, it’s not about Superman this time. “Krrish,” the flying superhero whose new movie is currently popular in India, has had to make a statement to ask people to not imitate his stunts. At least two …

Superman Returns gets two stars and a review which makes it sound like Ebert was charitable in the stars section. UPDATE: Please note that there are puh-lenty of spoilers in this review.
The Agony Booth reviews Superman IV. I’m sending you there and I’ve yet to read a word of it. It’s going to hurt. And it’s going to hurt for 12 pages! It’s a 12 page long review! That’s stunning. Because even Agony Booth’s classic review of Mr. T’s “Be Somebody or Be Somebody’s Fool” is …
UPDATE: THE CONTEST IS NOW OVER. COMMENTS CLOSED. To celebrate the debut of “Superman Returns”, Monitor Duty is holding a a contest to give away a Kryptonite Pen and a Superman Returns poster.
