Bobo is the real deal.  Between this and what’s going on in Justice League Dark, Detective Chimp is awesome.  Remember, Bobo saved everyone’s shit in Metal.

When I first read that I saw "Bobo saved everyone's shit at Mattel."  I think this board is getting to me.

Just a note about the Green Lantern title DC shipped this week.  Grant Morrison and Liam Sharpe are the creative team.  And it’s excellent.  Grant seems to have changed gears a bit.

I highly recommend this book if you have a few extra bucks for comics this week.

What was with the weird non-shiny paper? It felt like I was reading a 90s comic.

....and it was decent enough.

I like the new paper.  They’ve been using it for a few months now.

My understanding is that Grant is committed to at least a two year run.  With all that’s currently going on at DC (Doomsday Clock, Heroes in Crisis), it’ll be interesting to see where this book fits in.

Doomsday Clock #8, page 13, panel 9. 

I think I just pissed myself a little.   Grin

My company is going through a "restructuring" as well.  It is awful for everyone.  The people let go have to find new jobs and the people that remain have to wonder when their number is going to come up.

Layoffs suck for sure.  But seven people seems minimal.  Unless youíre one of the seven.  Bleeding Cool seemed to think this might be the first wave with another to come by the fall.  Seven people indicate some redundancies instead of cost cutting. 

More interesting is DCC now under WBCP.  Fewer people, more work.  And a different type of work.  WBCP is in charge of retail stuff, not niche specialty items.  Very early speculation on the Fwoosh is that this may answer the question about DC adult collector figures at retail.  Produce the figures in house and get someone else to manufacture and distribute.  Dunno how that works.

I worked at a place back in the 90s that was a division of CitiCorp, and had to do with credit cards.  I was just a temp at an offsite warehouse, and temps were unaffected.  Anyway, about every other year they had what was called March Madness.  It was horrible.  People would just be sitting at their desk working, and if somebody came up to you, and stopped at your desk, you were done.  People had no warning at all, other than knowing what time of year it was.

As far as I know, it had nothing to do with work performance.  It was all about trimming the so called fat.

I lived with layoffs for most of my career -- mostly because I live in a small town where good jobs can be hard to come by for college grads. First layoff was due to outsourcing -- a 90s phenomenon. It occurred in three phases -- and each time the statement was that no more layoffs were expected. I got the boot in the third and biggest phase.

The second was due to a merger -- which led to a merger -- and only a few people being kept on from our office.

The third one was due to lack of contracts -- which was due to piss poor management. There have only be a handful of layoffs at my current employer, but you never know what the future holds.

It is rarely about performance.
