Nothing much; just wanted to brag about today being my birthday...number 23 it is!
February New Gods-related releases are below, and some other stuff on the News and Tidbits page.
Updated: November 19, 1999
Part 2 of the New Gods history by Lou Mougin is underway...
Also, check out Legends of the DC Universe #24, by Jaime Delano and Steve Pugh. Entitled "The Jump," it's a two-parter about the life and times of a deceased Hunger Dog pursuing a foe he can't (or maybe...won't?) catch. Buy ten copies...for yourself, blind relatives, pets...just buy it!! :P Updated: November 12, 1999
It's been a busy week at work, so I kept it simple: the Appearances, Terminology and Character pages have been updated.
Updated: November 5, 1999
Welcome to the "We be f*cked" look of the NGL...at least until Mageddon is handily dealt with...I hope...
The issue summary of Takion #7 is now up...sorry if anyone was ticked that it wasn't up; I didn't have time to get it done before last week's update...I'll hopefully be getting started on some more issue summaries soon...!
Also, the history of the New Gods page has been updated with the completion of the first of Lou Mougin's two articles from Amazing Heroes (in the early 80's).
Updated: October 29, 1999

True story: This past weekend, I got an email from some guy named Walt Simonson. He asked me if I wanted to see a preview of the new Orion series, to be released in April 2000. I figured, "Sure, what the hey." Two days ago (9/29/99) I got it in the mail, and read the entire thing...
I'll let you know later on... :P
In the meantime, check out issue summaries for (books you've already read...) New Gods series 4 (that series where Darkseid died...yeah, *that* one...). Issues #1-11 are up; the Byrne stuff...will come next week...
Updated: September 24, 1999

Jack Kirby's prelude to the Hunger Dogs, "Even Gods May Die," has been added to the Comics page.
Some new appearances have been added as well.
And the second wave of questions for the New Gods FAQ have hit the 'Net: if you'd like to help contribute to the FAQ, e-mail me with your responses!
So what the hell is the Astro Force anyway?
Where are New Genesis and Apokalips, the planets of the New Gods?
What is the "Godwave?"
What's with that burning hand that writes messages to the Gods of New Genesis?
Why doesn't Metron ever seem to do anything?
Who are the Earth-allies of the New Gods, both good and bad?
Are any of the New God based on real-life people?
Why do so many fans seem to ignore much of what Kirby did?
Why so many guest appearances? Don't the New Gods have their own book?
What was with Kirby's dialogue for the New Gods?
What's this about similarities between the New Gods and Star Wars?
Updated: July 23, 1999
