Monday Geekiness: The Writer’s Strike and Comics

I am a geek. Seriously. I’ve been reading comic books off and on for ages, and have loved sci-fi/fantasy since I was tiny.

Getting things started.

It’s Monday- and I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend. Someday I’ll talk more about where we visited, but this is more about today. I woke up at 5 am when my in-laws’ cat started eating my cat’s food. Zorro’s pretty quiet when he’s eating, but Woogie is loud. So I woke up, and
