Today Was the Day, But Only For the First Time

So today was the Inauguration, Fringe was new and pretty bad-A, tomorrow's the season five premiere of Lost, Scott Pilgrim volume five is out in like two weeks and DC just solicits this:

Written by Grant Morrison
Art and cover by Cameron Stewart

In 2008 alone, superstar writer Grant Morrison killed Batman, put the entire DC Universe through its Final Crisis and concluded the unanimously beloved All-Star Superman. But what does a writer who’s written every significant superhero do when he can create any superhero he wants? The answer, of course, is Seaguy! Morrison (The Invisibles) rejoins original Seaguy artist Cameron Stewart (Seven Soldiers) in an all-new adventure starring the cult-favorite character!

In Seaguy’s cartoon future world, everyone is a superhero and no one dies. It’s absolutely perfect ... or is it? In this follow-up to the cult 2004 miniseries, Seaguy resurfaces with a sinister new partner, a hatred of the sea and a rebel restlessness he can’t explain. Why are Doc Hero and his ex-archenemy Silvan Niltoid, the Alien from Planet Earth, whispering strange equations? Why is Death so useless? And can that really be the ghost of Chubby Da Choona mumbling uncanny warnings and dire prophecies of ultimate catastrophe?

When the grotesque powers lurking behind the corporation known as Mickey Eye and the Happy Group attempt to erase Seaguy’s entire existence, can he possibly get it together in time to save a world so far gone it can’t even imagine the horror lying in wait? Find out here in Morrison’s own personal reframing of the Super Hero concept for the 21st century.

I'm not sure how this day can get any better. Can you think of anything that doesn't involve bacon?

Wow, yesterday was certainly a Dylan day. I'm very happy for you. The only way yesterday could have been better is if a top secret, super hush-hush Woody Allen film review had been posted. But when it finally is, we'll be able to celebrate the 2nd best day of 2009. Together. You. Me. And Farmer John.

Isn't that title a line from a Travis song?
