Comics Are Everywhere

The Wife and I were just channel surfing and landed on MASH. The episode was "The Korean Soldier" and featured comic book writer Larry Hama. (He's shown on the left in this still from the episode.) It's something of a bit part, but I mentioned it to The Wife and she actually perked up and showed some interest.

I've also seen ads that say the G4 channel will be airing live coverage of this year's San Diego Con on July 21. Superman Returns and X-Men 3 are in theaters now. Spider-Man 3 will be out later this summer, and My Super Ex-Girlfriend opens in a couple of weeks. You can flip on the TV and catch Blade: The Series or Stan Lee's Who Wants To Be A Superhero, as well as Justice League Unlimited, The Batman, Krypto, or Minoriteam. Not to mention plenty of re-runs of The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, The Tick, and plenty of other shows I'm forgetting at the moment.

The key, at the moment, is to make sure that you -- as a comic book fan -- point this stuff out to your friends and family who might not be as enlightened about the significance of comic books on American culture.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to set the timer to record a documentary on Frank Frazetta that's going to air early tomorrow morning.
