    More later. But page #52 (the cover for this episode) is a beautiful splash! I'm loving this comic! I'm thinking the black rider on the train (the good detective) may be the newest member of "Team Justice." Great Job. This seems to be coming out every 6 days! (Slightly faster than once a week.) Bully for you, Mark Wheatley. Way to make the trains run on time! Hmm. Trains. The rich men play with toy trains. The poor men ride the rails. I think I smell a literary theme!

      No, no – please! Not every SIX days! Mondays are LONE JUSTICE day at ComicMix. Every seven days. I have a hard enough time staying on track as it is!

        OK, Mondays are "Lone Justice Day" on ComicMix. It's noted. Point is, the pages are coming out weekly, on time, without fail. And the episodes stay consistently strong, with a nice mix of action, fantasy, history and character development! I'm reading a book called, "The Tipping Point." A friend recommended it to me. It's about how trends can develop. How fads, become trends and then cultural phenomena. It's an interesting book. I just read a Tweet from Wil Wheaton. He has 37,000+ more followers on Twitter since the start of February. He's up around 130,000 followers. Obviously Wheaton has hit a tipping point. He's hot. Who knows what put him over the edge, what tipped the scales in his favor! Maybe it was a multi-part interview in ComicMix. I wish the same kind of Tipping Point. The same kind of crazy success for ComicMix and Lone Justice. More people need to find out how cool this comic is. I guess the question is, "When will Oprah get a chance to read Lone Justice?"

          "The Tipping Point" is a very insightful book, Russ. Bob Tinnell turned me on to Malcolm Gladwell. Bob also recommends "Blink" – and I have not yet read that one. For me, a good deal of the information in "The Tipping Point" falls into the category of "I knew that but never put it all together so well" . And I suspect many people who work in the media or marketing have put a lot of what he talks about together in their minds. But I have never found a better guidebook to how things become popular than "The Tipping Point".Part of the reason Will Wheaton's Twittering is growing in popularity is that he is active on Twitter. Will has not been shy about jumping into a lot of different things. In one sense he is everywhere. Of course it doesn't hurt one bit that he started out with visibility in major motion pictures and had a nice run on a super popular TV series. With that kind of start there is a lot to work with. But judged against some of the other "supporting" actors he has performed with – Will is definitely out in front of the pack.So, Russ – how would you cast yourself from Gladwell's list of "types"?

            So far, "The Tipping Point" reminds me of "Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds" by Charles MacKay. I read that nearly thirty years ago. But it's 160+ years old, published in 1841!Wil Wheaton was an early adopter of Twitter. He's been on the service for quite some time and his volume of Followers goes up by 40+% in less than a month, up by nearly 40,000! That's a tipping point for Twitter or Wil or both. Is the the hype surrounding the Star Trek movie?BTW, speaking of fame, "Batman's Song" (my YouTube video) got featured by another Comic Book Web Site! This was without my asking directly for the exposure (I begged Glenn to feature me on ComicMix), just my own tiny fame spreading! It hasn't hit a Tipping Point. Of if it did, it was a tiny tip, jut the tip of a tip. But, I found that very validating.

    Sorry I didn't comment on the last one… my day job is infringing upon my rights as an individual! :) That aside, I'm still loving the piece. Some more rising action here, leading to a nice big reveal on the last page. Seems our young hero finds himself surrounded by those who seek to alter his world, without taking into account the changing world around them (or do they….).In any event, the art work is as strong as it ever was, and the story is clipping along well, as well! lovin it

      I think the reality is that most people on the internet are still surfing at work. So don't mess with the day job!Which reminds me – I have a memo from myself that I have a meeting with myself to revisit just how much time I spend on the internet every day at work. Woops – here comes the boss!
