Everyone remembers time. You hear it everywhere. Jobs. “I’ve been working here three years and still haven’t gotten a raise.” Communities. “Hi. My name is Bob, and I’m an alcoholic, but I’ve been sober for three months.” Cue the clapping. Home. “Honey it’s been three weeks, since I’ve seen you. Please come home for the weekend.” School. “ Ten more minutes and I’m free for three months.” (It hardly seems like three months when you know what’s on the other end of that freedom.)
We judge people by time. By how long they have been married. How long they’ve been on drugs. How long it’s been since they died. Since they were born. It’s inescapable. It’s always there. Vacatiions aren’t even free of restraints. You know it’s going to end. You know the weekend will slip away faster than the hours you spend at work. But you also know at the end of the week, there’s always the weekend, waiting to greet you.
Thank god, it’s Friday.

Damian seemed to have more life breathed into him as the book progressed and by the end, I was satisfied that he would be back to his overly critical and sarcastic self in the next trade they release. I also read Streets of Gotham and Batgirl, which Damian has appeared in, and I find his character much more enjoyable in those books.

I've decided my favorite subjects so far this year are Zombies and Batgirl. Second place goes to the rest of Gotham, whom I live with on a hate-love relationship.
This is my most recent comission by Michelle Sciuto. She does lovely work. And I continue to gather evidence on why Steph and Tim should get back together. Bryan Q. Miller, please write a "We're back together" issue of Batgirl and kill off that Tam girl in the Red Robin series. No one likes her anyways. Thanks!But that's basically my thought for the day. I swear to start writing more. I'm working on reading Feed by Mira Grant right now. So I'll be sure to post how it turned out, and there have been many new Batman trades to come out I haven't had a chance to write about. So, hopefully I'll get to that soon.
Until then, this will have to do.
