THE COMPANY GIVETH AND IT TAKETH AWAY? – A small bit of blog business: the unexpected trickle of review comics from DC which led to my reviews of Martian Manhunter and Captain Comet among others has apparently dried up as suddenly as it began. My guess is that a higher-up at DC caught what was happening – and ruled that paying attention to these blogger critics wasn't sufficiently cost effective. Still, the practice got me noticing titles I might otherwise have passed over (am still following Ennis & Robertson's The Boys and Comet), so it probably wasn't a total wash.
UPDATE: Johanna (in Comments below) is right in noting that I wrote too soon: I received a review book on Monday, 10/23.
