Dirty little secret #1 this month
People come up to me at cons and on the street, and lean in and say "I LOVED Batman Odyssey", as if it's a secret.
"Man, Odyssey blew me away, it had everything, and when Batman blew up Robin, sheeee-ite!" .....Then some,.. " What was that whole thing on the net?"
So I shrug my shoulders and mumble, "I don't know,.. I told everyone it was going to be chapters in a book, and no attempt to tell short stories. Something (shudder) new. Yet,..somehow, they wanted to know the End of the story, and they didn't want unanswered questions."
Then, "But you wrapped it up, and I had to go back and read it over again to..." And then ten minutes of conversation,..and then, BLAM "The last chapter,...WOW!"
So, I do the big-eyed, shake my head and smile that 'What can you do, it's the internet', smile,..and happily sign their 'Batman Odyssey'. Happy (and a little confused) Puppies all around.
