The Librarian

Hmmmm ...

The Maxx: Maxximized. May have to consider replacing my set of "The Maxx" books if this ever goes to trade edition. Or, even better, keeping the old and shelving the new beside it since a revamp can't be properly appreciated (or criticized) unless one knows the splendid crazy of the original, right?

P.S. Looking at my library and thinking the world really needs more Sam Kieth writing as well as his distinctive art. I own his:
Four Women
Zero Girl
Zero Girl: Full Circle
Ojo
My Inner Bimbo
The Maxx (all six volumes)

And just mentioning 'em has given me a powerful urge to re-read the lot.

Another bit o' great Canadian film

Haven't watched Men With Brooms in ages and ages but figured today it was appropriate for the current state of the weather. Yes, fans of "Due South" and films ranging from "Forbidden Planet" to "Airplane" and "Naked Gun", those are Canuck actors Paul Gross and Leslie Nielsen you're seeing (Gross also co-wrote the screenplay and directed)
