Gotham Knight and the Shiny Shelf drought

The owners of/contributors to Shiny Shelf have, over the last couple of years, become increasingly busy and inevitably this has led to a bit of a shortage of content, with the odd few weeks of total drought. I offer this as explanation rather than apology – the site isn’t making us rich or anything, and just kind of ticks along in the background as a low-level commitment, and an opportunity for spouting off about things that we wouldn’t necessarily get to talk about. Ideally we’d all have the time to write about everything that interests us, day in and day out, but sadly that ain’t going to happen right now. Jobs and lives and other writing work have a tendency to get in the way.

Odd things slip through the Shelf cracks altogether – I don’t think I’ve reviewed any of Matt Fraction’s Marvel work, for instance, an omission which needs rectifying at some point. Whole DC and Marvel crossovers have been and gone without a single mention on the site. And, until today, we hadn’t touched upon the DC Universe Animated Movies series. Until today, when I reviewed Gotham Knight and included a bit about the previous two while I was at it.

I hope you like the review. I had the space to do that today, as I completed all my bits for my big current thing and sent them to my co-writer earlier this week, leaving me a little gap before it gets passed back for any re-writes. Being at home, and having recovered from the working week, that left a little time to eat a large breakfast and some cupcakes, watch a DVD, and review it. Quite the relaxing Saturday, with only one thing missing – playing games. Having turned from a slowgamer into a no-gamer lately (aside from the odd play around with the DS while travelling), I have to take the opportunities when I can.

So I’m going to do that – pass the forcehammer.
