I know I've still not posted anything in-depth about WizardWorld Philadelphia; I will, I promise.

Before that, though, I have to note that Superman/Batman #26 is wonderful. The story is delightful; clearly, the artists and the writers brought their very best to the table. The tag story was simple, sweet, and heartbreaking.

For those not as geeky as I (lo, and your numbers are many!), Jeph Loeb, comic book writer (and TV and screenwriter) lost his son, Sam, to cancer last year. Sam was a budding writer as well; in the aforementioned issue, his final work was completed by various authors (Joss Whedon, Brad Meltzer, Brian K. Vaughn, Geoff Johns (to name but a few)) and artists (just check out the issue - wow. Wow.)



(random note with nods to imdb: holy crap. Jeph Loeb worked on 'Teen Wolf'? AND 'Teen Wolf Too'? Okay, and a couple of dinky shows called 'Smallville' and 'Lost,' but still... 'Teen Wolf Too'?!?!?!?!?')
 
 
I feel: sada wee bit weepy

As a fan of Superboy and Tim, I thought this issue was just about perfect. Even if it made me sniffly.

Just reading about Sam and Jeph made me teary-eyed. I'll have to go pick up Superman/Batman #26...

love the icons, btw.

but why God why did they let Liefeld in on the project ( they gave him 1 page only)
