Happy Thanksgiving, DC NATION!
Before we dive into our regularly scheduled DC NATION, I’d like to let you know a few things:
First and foremost, have a wonderful, safe and belly-filling Thanksgiving. What’s better than sitting around with friends and family while you eat and watch football? Not a whole lot.
Second – swing by the blog early Friday morning for a special holiday treat. Trust me on this one.
And third, because the DC offices will be closed early today and for the rest of the week, the dreaded “posting will be light” indicator is now on. But don’t worry, we’ll be back full throttle on Monday with some previews that are guaranteed tot knock you back into that Thanksgiving food coma.
Until then, here’s a quick romp around DCU Editorial, as some of the editors chime in about what they’re thankful this time of year. Take it away, gang:
Rex Ogle: I’m thankful for my officemate Sean Ryan who always makes my workday a pleasant one. I suspect he may be made of kittens and unicorns and children’s laughter.
Wil Moss: Just like last year, I’m thankful for the astounding artwork of the newly DC-exclusive CAFU, currently blowing minds left and right in the pages of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS! And I’m thankful that the legendary Eduardo Risso made time in his schedule to illustrate December’s JONAH HEX #62!
Liz Gehrlein: I’m grateful for the letters that kids send to Johnny DC. Reading them is one of my favorite parts of the job!
Joey Cavalieri: I’m thankful that I get to work on the Spirit, since Will Eisner was one of my teachers as well as a personal favorite — hell, one of everybody’s personal favorites!
Mike Marts: I am thankful for writer/artists — Dave Finch , Tony Daniel — that means you!
Rachel Gluckstern: I’ve been told that the TEEN TITANS are grateful for the new blood on their team — I think they should’ve been more careful what they wished for!
Brian Cunningham: I am thankful for all the visits I receive from other editors who mooch off my stash of free gum…waitaminute — they should be thankful for ME!
Mike Carlin: I am thankful for an amazing 25 years at DC Comics!
Mark Chiarello: I’m thankful that every episode of Columbo is on DVD.
Eddie Berganza: I am extremely thankful for all my hardworking freelancers — you know who you are! You make the comics awesome because you are awesome!
Matt Idelson: I’m thankful to be doing something I love for a living.
Chris Conroy: I am thankful for all the candy still left around the office from Halloween. DON’T JUDGE.
Sean Ryan: I’m thankful for my officemate Rex Ogle for making the workday feel a little like dipping my toe into a shallow pool of Heaven.
Ian Sattler: I’m grateful for all the members of the DC Nation who come out and support us at all the shows.
