    I prefer a thin slice of Swiss on almost any sandwich.

    Picked up the first issue of Generation Lost and thought it was fair. I however dropped the title once i found out that it is likely an on going series. I’m not looking to invest in that but would have shelled out for a mini series.

    I was under the impression that Generation Lost was running biweekly with Brightest Day, meaning it’s 26 issues long.

    Going back to the Fables commercial, I was playing catch-up and watched Dr. Who from 7 to 10 on Saturday night and I think they played the commercial at least once an hour. I know for sure I saw it twice…
