Romances in the Wards

Fuck superheroes, frankly.
The notion that these things dominate an entire culture is absurd.
It's like every bookstore in the planet having ninety percent of its shelves filled by nurse novels.
Imagine that.
You want a new novel, but have to wade through three hundred new books about romances in the wards before you can get at any other genre.
A medium where the relationship of fiction about nurses outweighs mainstream literary fiction by a ratio of one hundred to one.

Dear Avid Fan Base,

I am sorry.

I apologize for being away for so long. There was this thing. I wrote a paper. I presented it at an academic conference. It was awesome.

But I got distracted. I got sidetracked and overwhelmed and skipped updating Wednesday Theology one day. And then the next. And it went like that until now. Until today. Until 2013.

We're back, baby!

New year. New logo (look at that thing! Courtesy of Josh Bailey. Look at it!). New content.

Same old fun, theological insanity.

I'm getting the band back together, so to speak. Updates will be more frequent (as in there will actually be updates). We can all continue 66 Days of Preachers. I was afraid that would get left behind, and it was a strategic move so I could get everything done in time for the presentation, but afterward it was just my own dang laziness. Again, I apologize.

Soon I'll give a more detailed account of the conference, what I learned, how it inspired me, and what I'm going to do next. Yes, there will be some interesting stuff coming up next.

There's a fire inside, a passion for comics and theology that can't die out, even if I wanted it. But I don't want it to die out. Because this is what I do. And in 2013 I'm going to be doing a lot of Wednesday Theology.

Won't you join me?

Happy New Year!
