It’s no secret I’m a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumn Charisma Carpenter, and it has been announced the actress has now joined the cast of Lucifer, meaning I finally have a reason to watch the show.

First, I need to give my yearly advice to people buying gifts for comics fans, especially late ones! Do NOT try to buy an item you THINK they might want! Chances are, they either have it or don’t wait it if they haven’t already bought it. Instead, locate their local comics shop and buy a gift card! They’ll be able to purchase what they want, so they’ll love you for it! Phew! Okay, now we can move on to the topic at hand – This is a great time to be a comics fan! That’s so true on several levels!

Women and the supernatural. I often find that combination to be a great read. In BOOM! Studios’ tenth anniversary, they’re giving a lot of quality comics a chance. I always appreciate that. I’m glad that includes Hexed coming back, so it’s been a great Wednesday for me all around!
He’s back! It’s always great to chat with one of my very favorite comics writers, Michael Alan Nelson, who’s creating Hexed and Day Men for BOOM! Studios! We discuss both of those comics, including Hexed’s history and how he became involved with Day Men. We also discuss a favorite subject of mine, women characters in comics, as well as the characters in each of the books he’s currently working on! I’m sure you’ll enjoy what he has to say, so don’t miss it!
