ODD: Not too much to discuss today…just trying to survive until the four-day weekend. Come this time next week, PGPoA–and the Poe household–will be in full holiday mode.
END: The DCUC Toys ‘R Us two-packs have started to show up, which is just a bit earlier than I predicted (early December). The only set I’m praying I ever see in person is the Orion/Lightray one, but there’s also a Batgirl/Azrael set (both of whom were previously released) and one with Hal Jordan (in his first appearance duds) and Abin Sur.
ODD: He-Man and Beast Man go on sale at noon EST on Monday. Here’s hoping Mattycollector.com doesn’t crash within the first five minutes–remember to boost that bandwidth, Matty! Incidentally, I’ll be getting these as an Xmas gift from Dr. Mrs. Ghostal, so don’t look for reviews until the New Year.
END: On a whim, I decided to do a search for “Thanksgiving figure” on eBay. Most of the hits were just sales, but there was this guy.
ODD: The “Batman: R.I.P.” storyline in the Batman comics ends tomorrow. I wish I felt confident enough to make some sort of prediction as to what’s going to happen, or at least who the Black Glove is, but writer Grant Morrison has layered the story with so many bizarre red herrings I’m effectively stumped.
END: Here’s an idea–let’s try an interactive Odds ‘n Ends! The first commenter can start with “ODD:” and then write whatever pithy observation he or she would like, then the next commenter starts with “END:” and so on. I’m curious to see how far it can go before devolving into hilarious surreality.
