Sneaking a Ding Dong Into Your Kid.

By naming them ReaDING, DON G.

What a whirlwind of a weekend.

Saturday was a blur of holiday shenanigans.

Comicbook christmas was fucking amazing as always.

But after a day of hauling boxes of decorations, stringing up lights, rushing around, shuffling people, and setting up for comicbook christmas, the actual comic exchange wrung the last of my energy out of me.

Sunday was a day of recovery.

So, after an intense upper body workout, I climbed up on the roof and put lights on the house with Debb the Blebb.

The word of the day was: Vitriol.

[ vi-tree-uhl ]
Chemistry. any of certain metallic sulfates of glassy appearance, as copper sulfate or blue vitriol, iron sulfate or green vitriol, zinc sulfate or white vitriol, etc.
oil of vitriol; sulfuric acid.
something highly caustic or severe in effect, as criticism.
verb (used with object), vit·ri·oled, vit·ri·ol·ing or (especially British) vit·ri·olled, vit·ri·ol·ling.
to treat with or as with vitriol, especially sulfuric acid.

After the morning stuff, I did take the rest of the day to sorta rest.

I went through all the comics I brought home Saturday night.

After sifting most of the stack out by finding their digital equivalents, I had a nice stack of about 13-15 books that are too weird to be stockpiled in the digital archives.

For better or for worse.

Time will tell.

I’ll read my way through that stack before dipping back into the digital stuff on the iPad.

It’s just gotta occupy me for a few more weeks.

Hopefully Grismas will bear comicbook fruit.

But if not I can use whatever I get gift card or cash wise after the buying ban lifts on New Year’s.

But there’s a lot of work standing in between me and reading comics.

The word for today is: Vociferous.

[ voh-sif-er-uhs ]
crying out noisily; clamorous.
characterized by or uttered with vociferation:
a vociferous manner of expression.

Yes that’s my official megaphone for the Year of Randumb.

I leaked a sneak of the new logo on social media last night, but here’s the real deal…


The Blacksmith utterly destroyed my expectations on this one.

If you dig it as much as I do, please send him some kudos.

Props where they are due.


I’ve gotta go do a brunch core exercises before heading to a hectic Monday.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
