Penance

Posted: February 22, 2019 in Comics, Cool stuff, General

Dynamite Entertainment in the US published the first issue of a new line of Xena comics over there in October. Titled “Penance”, this 124 page comic book in full colour sports a rather nice cover by David Finch. When this project was put in motion, they were probably hoping that the reboot of Xena on television would help, but as that was cancelled before they really got going it was not to be. Maybe there are enough old Xenites out there to support this project anyway?

Located this wonderful Modesty Blaise cloth and figured it would look pretty good in the hobby room. Added some classic badges (Tommy Bolin, Rainbow, Whitesnake & Black Sabbath) to it and it looks pretty OK I think. I am getting a lot of stuff done at the new place now. Looks like I might live there exclusively by April.

Pretty busy this weekend unpacking boxes in my new place. At the moment I am just sorting stuff, I need to get the last couple of rooms ready this summer before I can squeeze in the last of my collections. Still, getting stuff organized is a good first step. Took this image about 10 days ago down in the hobby room. I have actually located a brilliant Modesty Blaise cloth that I got years ago as I subscribed to Agent X9, and I will present a snapshot of it next week on this blog. I just had to put that on the wall in this room.

The posts I put up today and this weekend has actually been prepared in advance as I do not have access to Photoshop in the new place as yet. This will happen fairly soon now though, as I will bring over the old computer over here as well. Thus I have to wait with some Whitesnake news (they have just released a new video), and Babymetal better not drop any kind of bombshell information in the next couple of days, that would drive me bonkers!

On September 5 2013 I blogged about me putting my old MAD pocket book collection in a box for the eventual move to the countryside some day, and now I am happy to report that they can now be found in a nice little corner in my new man cave. Feels good. Behind them you can spot some classic Marvel and DC Comics stuff.

More Norwegian comics are now for sale through AdLibris in Sweden, and this includes titles like Davy og Miki (from issue 19, billed as 1 2018) and Tex Willer (issue 649, billed as 1 2019). I tried to get this done years ago but they would not listen. But, here we are…

Nice.
