Mark asks why the guns have stopped. Why no trash talk? Oh, Mark. I think we all know the answer to that. Nobody wants to make you cry like a little girl. That’s why.

In the distant past a group of four writers calling themselves Clockwork Storybook used to publish their prose stories online, most of those tales set in an urban fantasy shared world called San Cibola. That site and those stories have long been absent from the internet, but the writers didn’t disappear. The original writing group grew from four members to ten and have been published all across the spectrum of fantasy fiction, including comic books, novels, TV and more. Back then, the four Tick Tock Men would often publish what they called 30 day stories – novel length fantasy stories

I’ve really been enjoying JSA All-Stars for a while now: it may not be about to revolutionise the comic book medium, but it’s been a source of fun and exciting super hero action, and is a good read for it. I decided, thus, to take a look at the latest issue of the series, and see how it stands up under the reviewer’s microscope.

Well it was fun while it lasted Has it really been three years?  Three years since Infinite Crisis introduced readers to Jaime Reyes, a teenager who picked up a scarab and became the new Blue Beetle?  In three years we’ve seen Jaime learn to use his powers to fight crime, defeat an alien invasion, land a super hot girlfriend, and build an extended family of those willing to go the distance to help him in his battle against those that would do evil.  It’s too bad everything comes crashing down on Jaime’s head in this final issue. Well, Ted Kord

Sometimes Actions Have Repercussions One of the best stories to come out of the most recent Blue Beetle series featured Jaime Reyes and friends kicking the butts of the alien Reach who were invading the Earth.  That battle ended when Jaime and his scarab (the Khaji-Da) severed the connection between the Blue Beetle alien technology and the invaders.  With one issue to go after this one, one might think the tale being told would settle down a bit.

Press Release Written by Matthew Sturges, writer of the Eisner-nominated JACK OF FABLES, and his JACK co-writer, FABLES creator Bill Willingham, HOUSE OF MYSTERY: Room and Boredom Vol. 1 (Vertigo | January 14, 2009 | 128pg. | Color | Softcover | $9.99 US | ISBN: 9781401220792), collecting issues #1-5, takes a classic DC Comics concept into the twenty-first century.

Wham! Bam! A Dead Blue Beetle? This title can’t come out often enough, but sadly, the faster the issues come, the sooner the series ends (thanks DC). With two issues to go, the big showdown between the new Doctor Polaris and Blue Beetle comes to a head. Only… Blue Beetle died last issue.

Over at his blog, Matthew Sturges has officially announced a sequel to his novel Midwinter, something he alluded to on his appearance on the Major Spoilers Podcast. Since it’s been announced elsewhere, I guess it’s safe for me to announce that I’ve sold a sequel to Midwinter, which is tentatively titled The Office of Shadow. I pitched it as “a spy thriller set in Faerie” and I think that’s actually one of the most accurate elevator pitches I’ve ever come up with. It follows directly from the events of Midwinter, and will hopefully be released sometime around early 2010. Sturges

I love it when a plan comes together.  Wait, there’s a plan? One of the great things about the Blue Beetle series is how the writers who have taken on the challenge of this series are able to bring the collected group of heroes together to fight a common enemy.  While the big bad doesn’t get his comeuppance in this issue, it’s good to see everyone come out of the woodwork to give aid to our favorite beetle in blue.
