My daughter thinks that "the Batcave" is the large hole on the sub-woofer next to my desk. Actually, she calls it "Batman's Cave," and though I don't recall doing so, I probably told her that it was awhile back and thus she just repeats it all the time. I like Batman a lot.
If you're like me, those four words should be enough to put David Bowie in your head (or maybe The Wallflowers) for the rest of the morning. For DC Dentertainment, home to DC Comics (my favorite publisher growing up) and countless iconic Superheroes, those words represent lending a hand to countries in the 'Horn' of Africa - Ethiopia, Somalia, and Kenya - as they face their worst drought in 60 years.
It's Saturday, May 5, 2012 - which means that it's FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Yes, it's the annual day in which independent comic shops open their doors to readers new and old to dish out some free books for kids of all ages. While I don't agree with some of the marketing materials regarding the popularity of print comic books these days, I do think that this is an important day, and the perfect chance to take the kids to a local comic book store.
