Thanks to Brian, who loaned me the first four volumes of Spawn ... ... ... Todd McFarlane's baby after he gave up on Marvel.

Am on volume 2 (issues 34-54) right now and so far it has been a mixed bag ...
the first volume was very nice, the second one good ... but the third one showcases too many religious/biblical angles - heaven vs. hell ... Armageddon etc. ...
lets see how this volume ends - I have a feeling the story will get tighter towards the end and make me want to pick up volume 4 :)

The art is superb ... albeit a tad dark at times .... I just love the red cape flying all over the place ... very batman-esque ... ... ... and of course there are usually bats next to him :D

but considering that these books were created in the early nineties ... pretty neat stuff I must admit.

Freeware Genius

Have discovered this gem of a website FreewareGenius
the dude constantly updates (almost daily) with new freeware programs out there - very well laid out website and very plain and simple reviews - plus he has these 5-star picks which are usually very nice programs - perfect.

One of his articles is pretty neat albeit a bit dated now - Reinstall-windows-and-outfit-your-system-with-all-freeware-programs

peruse at leisure.

Liquid buys Virgin

Comics. Yeap - Virgin Comics has closed shop.
in case any of you were wondering why Virgin Comics' installments were not showing up on stores ...
Damn the recession ... !

The good news is that Liquid Comics has bought Virgin Comics and have even put up all the comics online - sweet ...
I just hope they come out soon with the comics ...

Comics I am especially interested in
Ramayan 3392 Reloaded 3+
and pretty much everything else :D

Obama in White House

Huge step for the US ... and the world I guess ... my colleagues here in Angola are ecstatic that an African-American is the most powerful man in the world today ...
I would argue but that's for another day ...

Strange that it was the Democrats who elected their first African-American president and not the Republicans ... after all it was the Republicans that primed the fight to abolish slavery in the US.

oh well ... i'm just wondering if the "White" house will eventually change its name to something more politically correct ;) ... like everything else!
