Annotations to League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century 1969

Jess Nevins’ annotations add so much to every book he does them for that I consider feel sorry for every book without any of his annotations available. I first came across his work with Neil Gaiman’s limited series 1602 and I’m glad I did.

If you haven’t bought any of the books yet, now is as good a time as any to buy them on Amazon, and give me a small kickback in the process.

It’s Tuesday:

This is where the robot head of Jack Kirby has been taking you too, all this time. This is a universe that abuts our own, a vast space of cometary ideoplasm and speaking atomic structure.

Warner Bros. Creates DC ENTERTAINMENT

DC is now it’s own company, again, but still owned by Warner. I wonder if this is a response to the Disney/Marvel deal or if it was in motion before that went down?
