I know this past weekend marked the second major comic convention in the past month. First there was Wondercon. Then just a few weeks later, C2E2 hits Chicago like one of Barack Obama's secret socialist community organizing campaigns. Under normal circumstances, I keep up with the announcements as they come in and if something is interesting or I'm just drunk enough then I'll blog about it. While there was some interesting shit that came about during the course of the three-day event, I was in no condition to blog. And for that, I'm sorry to say I won't be able to offer my usual colorful commentary on the latest news in comics.
It's through no fault of my own, I assure you. As it just so happened, this past Friday I was scheduled for surgery. Since I can't plan my fucked up health around when comic book conventions are in session, I essentially had to miss most of what was going on with C2E2 or be too fucked up to make sense of it. Now in case some of you are worrying that this is a sign that my liver is finally coming back to kick my ass, stop worrying. The surgery was to fix my nose, which has had a long history of being fucked up for reasons I would rather not discuss. The surgery went fine. It's the post-op shit that's been kicking my ass. The prescription drugs, the lack of sleep, and the overly long recovery time has left me in no mood to effectively blog to my usual drunken standards.
So for this, I apologize to all my wonderful X-men Supreme readers. I'm sorry I wasn't able to offer anything from C2E2 this past weekend. And depending on how my recovery goes, it may affect my ability to do reviews this week. I'm going to do my best to make it happen. Unless I slip into a coma, I will review Avengers vs. X-men #2 at one point. However, I may not be able to review much else. It depends on how my recovery goes.
There are still plenty of other sources for info on C2E2. They just won't be as colorful, drunk, or fucked up as me. Check out Comic Book Resources, Newsarama, or Bleeding Cool for info on all the latest announcements. I should be back to my full drunken strength within two weeks, but in the meantime if I'm unable to carry out my normal reviewing and X-men Supreme duties I will announce it. Just want to give everybody a heads up. Thanks for helping this blog kick ass guys! Until next time, wish me a happy and dazed post-op recovery! Nuff said.
