The Addams Family on DVD

Addams Gomez5

According to the Unofficial Addams Family site, The Addams Family TV shows should start coming out on DVD this October.

I know The Addams Family and The Munsters both came out in 1964, but the latter always felt like a cheap knock-off to me. The Addams Family seemed a little weirder, a little more dangerous, and, as far as I was concerned, a lot funnier.

Anyway, looks like another addition to my Christmas list…

My First Comics Convention

WizardWell, I’m taking the plunge.

I don’t think I’m quite ready for the big Comic-Con in San Diego (maybe next year), but tomorrow I’m going to the Wizard World Chicago just down the road a piece.

Not being much of a comic book guy, I’m paying close attention to Mark Evanier’s Convention Guide.

I also bought a few recent comic books (Marvel Civil War 1 & 2) and the latest Wizard magazine (it’s kinda like People for the comics nerd set) to help prepare me. Boy oh boy have comics changed since I was a kid.

Wish me luck, and expect lots of pic next week.
