So this is a weird thing that DC came up with for the Watchmen 30th Anniversary. It's a box set collection of hardcover single comics. Sort of marketed for the same crowd that's buying the hardcover editions of The Dark Knight III The Master Race, it came out in November and it retails for $125.

From a reading standpoint, hardcover singles actually make sense for Watchmen above all other comics series. Watchmen was never intended to be consumed as a graphic novel. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons designed each issue to be parsed individually, and when you read the series that way, it takes on a whole different and wonderful layer of design and story craft that is lost in the graphic novel format.

Rainer Weiss

Ronald Drever

Kip Thorne
So, here's a special thank you to Kip Thorne, Ronald Drever, and Rainer Weiss, the winners of this year's Breakthrough Prize for fundamental physics. The trio won this year for their work in detecting gravitational waves. Once again proving that Einstein was right. Congratulations guys! Even if you did disprove my time machine out of existence... I'm looking at you Thorne.

Just in case you thought I was feeling all political this morning..

Here's a Doughnut for you all...

H.L Mencken strikes again!

"On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." -H. L. Mencken-

That's twice now Mencken. Let's at least try to stay out of the prophecy business okay?
