Fight allergies! Read a comic today!

Superheros day! Superman's day! Yes my friends, after a lot of thinking I realized that my allergies are nothing more than an alien conspiracy to make me weak and unable to use my powers. I'll teach you E.T.!! What to do when you lie in a beautiful Thursday afternoon in your bed? You guessed right! Reading comic books and watching TV shows with cute guys on it!!
Oh, happy life!

Anyway, I'll talk about the TV shows later. Right know I'll share with you the majesty of my not so old JLA trades, TOWER OF BABEL (by Mark Wade, Christopher Priest, Dan Curtis and John Ostrander) and DIVIDED WE FALL (By Mark Wade). Those are damn good comics. I haven't been to much into JLA comics lately, but I've heard that sadly they really really shouldn't be your first option. I wont make any more comments, since I haven't read them. Anyway, I don't know if any of you filthy followers of my stupid blog read "Tower of Babel". This is the one when all JLA is almost killed by Ra's Al Ghul, who stole and used the secret files Batman had of each of them and their weaknesses. Supes, WW, GL, John, Plastic Man and Flash are really really mad with Bats. Hey, not everyday someone gets to have a secret file with painfully ways of taking you out. So Batman is the traitor according to half of the JLA. Not to be trusted. Oh...I love when Bruce gets all...paranoid. And Superman, damn it breaks your heart to watch him so disappointed. His friendship and trust betrayed. (I gotta admit it; I love their relationship.) One of the things I've always loved it's when you get to see the humanity in all of the characters. Their fears, their regrets. Love when it happens, specially with Clark and Bruce. This is a fragment that appears in Divided we Fall. (Bruce talking about Clark) "...When ... I mean, if... The day comes that it has to be used against him (red isotope- more or less like kryptonite). I only hope I don't have to be there to see the effects. I hope I don't have to look him in the eye when it happens."

Ms. Mysterious shivers. Oh yeah! Nothing like a good comic to fight the blues and alien infections. So that's it. These are my picks of the day. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll go and have my chicken soup.
