WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT: THE NEW ADVENTURES ARCHIVES Various (W/A) In 1997, almost six decades after the character's first appearance in 1940, legendary artist and writer Will Eisner gave permission for a new series of stories to be commissioned featuring his signature creation, resurrected detective Denny Colt, also known as the Spirit, written and drawn by the most famous names in the comics industry. The call went out, and the response was nothing short of remarkable, with contributions from such creators as Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons (in one of their rare collaborations since Watchmen), Neil Gaiman (The Sandman), Paul Chadwick (Concrete), and Eddie Campbell (From Hell), amongst others. In these pages you'll find new tales of Central City's protector versus familiar villains such as the Octopus and Sand Saref; witness his undying love for Ellen Dolan, daughter of Commissioner Dolan, the only man to know his secret identity; and glimpse what might be the Spirit's fate in an uncertain future.

Nina Storey, A Novel Listen

Hey everyone! Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.

Recently, I was fortunate to hear about singer Nina Storey. I read up on Nina. She seemed like a sweet lady. I listened to a few of her tracks. She has an even sweeter voice. Both her demeanor and talent have garnered increasing fan following and positive press coverage.

If you can spare the brief moment, watch one of Nina's recent music videos (below). I think you'll agree this woman has some soul. Her voice is soothing.

Frankly, I'm digging her music greatly and just want you to have the same opp!

Nina will be performing at the Hotel Cafe this coming Tuesday (9/8/09). The show begins at 8pm. I'm venturing to see if she sounds this good live. I'm thinking, yes.

Have a good week.
