The return of Three Good Things


For a few years after 9/11, I periodically posted little lists of good things, some big, some very small, just because. Now seems like a good time to bring back the tradition. So here are today’s Three Good Things:

  1. Fuji apples.

  2. The constant flow of free and discounted digital comics at Comixology. Seriously, if you have even a passing interest in comics, follow them on Twitter and check out the goods.
  3. Learning the names of trees. Something I always wanted to do and only recently started to do. (That’s a leaf from a silver maple, by the way. Pretty, huh?)

Talking Comics loves “X-Treme X-Men” #7.1

An excerpt:

… the book is hilarious, over-the-top silly (in the best way possible), full of action and ends on a heartfelt but somber note.

Read the whole thing here.
Buy the issue now at Comixology or ask your local store to hold one for you today!

Donate to the family of subway victim Ki Suk Han and get a signed Greg Pak comic book

By Greg Pak
The amazing people at Korean Community Services have established a fund for the family of Ki Suk Han, the man who was murdered in the New York City subway last week.
In hopes of encouraging donations, I will send a signed comic book from any series I’ve written to anyone who donates more than $25 to the fund. We’ll work on the honor system here — send an email to vm at pakbuzz dot com answering the following questions and I’ll hook you up:

1. Please include your Twitter handle if you’d like a shout out online for the donation. And please tell me how much you donated so I can keep track and inspire others to contribute.
2. Please specify a character or comic book series that I’ve written that you like so I can pick a good comic to send you. UPDATE: If there is a specific issue I’ve written that you’re missing, let me know what it is and I’ll see what I can do.
3. Please confirm that you’re 18 or older.
4. Please include a US mailing address. (Sorry for not being able to ship overseas!)

Here’s how to donate:

DONATIONS for the Han family can be sent to: Korean Community Services (KCS), 35-56 159th St., Flushing, N.Y. 11358. Checks should be made payable to “Korean Community Services” with the memo: “Community Fund for Mr. Han.”

via
Or you can donate ONLINE to the fund.
Linda Lee, Executive Director of Korean Community Services, tells me that donations by check may be preferable because there are no deductions by the credit card companies, etc. But if the online system works best for you, please go for it!
Please note that the offer is first come, first served, so please donate early!
