On Monday 22nd of December Ali Farrell, the wonderful, beauteous wife of Mr. Bill Rosemann, gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. All are doing extremely well. More info as it arrives.
Bill and Ali are close friends and I'm extremely happy for their new arrival - even more so that he was born on the day of my own Dad's birthday. Circle of life, I guess.
Now, if only I can convince them to call him Albert.....
I'd also like to add Locke and Key by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez
I've only just bought and read this over the weekend and it's fantastic - I heartily recommend it if you like your thrills even slightly twisted. Joe Hill writes a masterful plot and spot on dialogue for his characters - each one of them a gem. I truly don't know if I can wait for the next series to be collected - I may be tracking them down each month at the comic shop.
Gabriel Rodriguez's artwork creeps up on you perfectly. Taking in consideration it's inherent cartoonishness ( almost Phil Bondish - which is definately no bad thing in my book) it socks you over the head when the true horror is perpetrated. Perfect.

If you think you've got it rough with last minute holiday shopping, just imagine if you had to find the perfect gift for a teenage mutant, ornery sea king or thunder god!
With the holiday season in full swing, we asked Marvel writers, artists and editors what they'd get for the characters they work or have worked on to show their appreciation.
