I didn’t go to Superman Celebration this year, but my husband did. Being a good geek husband, he brought me presents.
First is a Wonder Woman sketch by George Perez.
He also brought back a print of Huntress & Power Girl from World’s Finest that Perez drew.
Second is a Batgirl sketch by Terry Beatty.
Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the passing of Jim Henson. Check out my husband’s post about his 1st trip to Leland, MS, Jim’s birthplace, with our friend and puppeteer Kevin Williams. Together, they took this picture that is found all over the interwebs (usually uncredited & often defaced, but that’s another rant for another day.)
In happier news, today is Yvonne Craig’s birthday. The original Barbara Gordon is 75 years old. Happy Birthday!
In other happy news, the Reading With Pictures Kickstarter campaign has exceeded its goal of $65,000 to publish The Graphic Textbook. Reading With Pictures, founded by our friend Josh Elder, is committed to getting comics into classrooms as educational tools. It’s a fantastic organization, and it’s not too late to contribute.
Christmas has come and gone, and I hope that each of you had a very happy holiday. I received more items for my Fangirl Room, courtesy of my fiancee. This is a pic of just the Wonder Woman stuff.
One of the coolest things I received was the Wonder Woman picture frame, and Lin printed a picture of Gail Simone and I from MidSouthCon to go in it.
I also LOVE the Batgirl baseball cap he got for me.
The girls, Jarael and Harley, enjoyed their Christmas goodies, too.
As a present to myself, I bought a new computer last night. My old one was about 10 years old and dying by inches. I’m looking forward to blogging more in 2011 with a more reliable computer now in my possession.
Another Fangirl Wednesday is upon us! This week’s purchases are:
I may also pick up Batman #700 if Lin doesn’t, and S.H.I.E.L.D. #2. I don’t usually read Marvel, but I fell in love with Dustin Weaver’s art during his run on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. I’m willing to give it a shot for $2.99.
