No comics of course. New Mutants seems to be running a little less-than-monthly, since I should have been out to get that by now, and it wasn't on the list for next week either. At this rate, it might come out along with Runaways, making it only one trip to the comic store this month.

Work was okay, though hot. Quite hot. As was the walk home. Sweat got in my eye which is always a pain.

In other news, Neil Gaiman won the Hugo for his novel The Graveyard Book, making me once again one short of having completed all the winners. DAMN YOU NEIL GAIMAN! I was actually semi-rooting for Cory Doctorow's Little Brother because I've read and enjoyed it, but Gaiman's usually a good read so I have no qualms about buying another one. The other big Hugo news for me was Whedon and Doctor Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog winning the Hugo for best Short Form movie/tv/video

And... yes, something I've been waiting for for a while. AMC has announced that it will be adapting Robert Kirkman's comic "The Walking Dead" as a series. That's right, an ongoing zombie survival TV series. I've only read bits and pieces of the comic (I have a series interest-block on Black & White stuff), but what I've read seems pretty good. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] angelophile on the heads up on that) Maybe this will make up for AMC's travesty of the Prisoner. (Okay, I'm pre-judging there, which I shouldn't do. But it's so FUN! I will watch that and give it a fair chance, even if some of what I've seen does not fill me with excitement).

Found an announcement on what the 'Big Disaster' in the upcoming (midseason) series "Day One" is. Here. I dunno, normally I'd be all over that as a TV series premise, but somehow it seems less than what I'd hoped for _that_ as a series. Oh well, still probably worth a look.
