Superman NEWS!

As coverage continues to expand for SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, DC Comics announces that this new graphic novel is being sent back to press for a new, second printing before it even goes on sale!
"With the astounding amount of attention from reviewers and media outlets, we've seen an astounding amount of reorder activity from retailers even before publication," says Bob Wayne, SVP - Sales, DC Comics. "We're more than happy to respond to increasing demand by readying a new printing now."
Media hits continue to pour in for SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, including:
"It's both recognizable and refreshed, carrying over some traditional narrative points - and even nodding in the direction of Superman's first cover - while creating some new ones wholly out of supercloth." - Wired Underwire, http://www.wired.com/underwire/2010/10/superman-earth-one-2.=
Here is a roundup of media coverage highlighted by DC Comics earlier today. Watch for more national feature coverage this week and next.
CBS News anchor Katie Couric addressed EARTH ONE on Monday's CBS Evening News, saying, "Loyal fans may wonder if you can really trust an angst-ridden hipster to fight for truth, justice and the American way." You can hear her comments at http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-500803_162-20020677-500803.html.

Shannon told me to update the blog since I hadn't done so since our vacation.  We had a great time in Florida, by the way.  Check out pictures on facebook.

The last two weekends were crazy and Magic filled.  We had our biggest tournament since moving to Shiloh and sold more Magic over the weekend than any other weekend in Twilight's history, so thanks to everybody for that!

Within the next six weeks or so, I should find out if I get to reduce some of my medication.  Yea!  As it is now, it's almost like a meal unto itself.

Well, it's not a huge update, but it's something.
