Hello, neighbor. Welcome to ThWiP.
Pretty good week with Venom finishing off its awesome Circle of Four storyline and the conclusion to Heroes for Hire‘s stealth cancellation miniseries follow-up Villains for Hire. Animal Man gave us one of the best superhero moments in a long time (despite the contents of the panel this week, Buddy is the best superhero dad). And Huntress finishes off her miniseries with so little drama and feel for danger that I’m wondering if Levitz inputted the God Mode code when writing it. Here’s the six issues summed up: bad things were happening and Huntress stopped them without any problems whatsoever. The end.
This week I’m helped out by Was Taters and Space Jawa, so that’s something.

In personal news, my improv classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center have been going swimmingly. I’m having the time of my life and I can’t recommend it enough after two classes. If anyone in the NYC area is interested, I’m going to be doing a graduation performance on Sunday, April 22nd at the UCBeast theater.
My instructor is the redhead in this clip. Pretty cool dude.
My plans are to go through all the classes and see where that takes me.
