Journalista for June 24, 2010: Uncle Dirk’s storytime

Posted by on June 24th, 2010 at 3:53 AM

Once upon a time, Old Uncle Dirk fell behind on his deadlines. He dragged the third part of that 2006 Eddie Campbell interview across the finish line around 1:30 in the morning, and realized there wasn't a hope in hell of getting any blogging done without greeting the morning sun in the process, and he just rolled a cigarette and gave up.

I did, however, want to acknowledge something that I missed yesterday: In the process of rolling out its new iTunes comics app, DC Comics also committed a 26-issue miniseries, Justice League: Generation Lost, to same-day digital release. (Chris Sims tries out the app; David Brothers sings its praises.) It's too soon to tell if this will lead to a serious roll-out of same-day titles any time soon, but within the confines of an argument that's rolled -- rolllllllled! -- across this blog over the past month or so, I should certainly note that Sean T. Collins turned out to be right.

DC Comics, of all people. Who saw that one coming?
