Afternoon folks,

I’m back!

As you may recall, from mid-March to mid-April I ran a daily post called ‘Something to read when you’re bored’. After 28 posts I brought ‘Something to read…’ to a natural conclusion, to focus on new content for all my blogs.

Well, today I thought I would check in with everyone to see how we are all keeping, and to provide you with something to occupy your time. Yep, if you’re still at a lockdown loose-end, I have some content to chuck your way!

Let’s kick-off with some news…

This was announced a couple of days ago, and I think we were all expecting it, but in case you missed it, San Diego Comic-Con 2020 has been cancelled.

The event, which takes place annually across the summer, will NOT go ahead this year. The pandemic has put a stop to the event, but it will return in 2021.

To Batman now and a bunch of new posts that I have recently added to I’ll Get Drive-Thru. The first of which is this curiously titled post: Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger rents a Mr. Freeze costume?

More Batman for you, this time in the form of a classic comic book tale. The post is: What is Batman: Stories? and it provides an overview of this Dark Knight tale from the 1990s.

And sticking with Batman stories from the 1990s, earlier today I published the post: Did you notice this about the villains from Batman Forever?

If you’re a fan of Batman Forever, I recommend you check out the post and see if you noticed something important about the Riddler and Two-Face.

Do you know how many Bond films feature Sean Connery? It might be more than you think.

Over to Spider-Man now, and a couple of posts from my Spidey blog, Don’t Tell Harry. The first of these posts takes a look at a classic comic book story featuring Thanos.

If you like Spidey stories, or you simply want to know more, then take a look at my post: What is Spider-Man: No One Gets Outta Here Alive?

That’s show business

And finally, a second Spidey post for you, and this one takes a look at ‘Twelve actors you forgot were in Spider-Man movies‘. I think you can guess what this post is all about – so check it out!

OK, that’s all from me. I hope the above gives you something to occupy your time – and I also hope everyone is still keeping well.

We are certainly in a different place than we were when this all started, and I’m confident things are moving in the right direction. So, stay safe, stay positive, and stay inside.
