How great a day is this?
First, it’s Friday.
Second, my head cold seems to be subsiding.
Third, I found out there is a Donald Trump comic coming out.
Fourth: One day left until Free Comic Book Day.
Fifth: Ben Templesmith is releasing a new Wormwood series in July!
How’s that for burying the lead?
I have so loved Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse and Wormwood: Calamari Rising, that the idea of a new Wormwood series fills me with Geekstacy!
Templesmith’s character, Wormwood, is some kind of demigod from another dimension who happens to be a worm. He saves the world from all kids of ungodly horrors and supernatural monsters. He also gets around by burrowing into the body of a dead man — usually a snappily dressd one.
It’s fantastic stuff!

Eisner-nominated creator Ben Templesmith returns to the world of Wormwood with the undead detectives idea of a “vacation.” Which naturally entails Nordic gods, nursing homes, Valkyrie property developers, and a surly unicorn, too!
