Just coming up for Air before the big migration to the City of Neon for that Event I mentioned elsewhere.
We are about 3.5 months out before CITY AT THE END OF TIME comes out in Hardback. Are we going to start seeing more Teasers Here and Elsewhere Soon? Finally catching the third segment of the Last of the Time Lords trilogy of Dr. Who Episodes last weekend and was somewhat "Hmmmmmmmmmmmm'd" by the similarity in that Story arc and the scant teasers about "City"

Did a quick review of the Blog just now and saw the Valis post from the 16th, where it mentioned that you are an avid viewer of LOST. Storm, my Proto-Wife, may be the most intense follower of that show in San Diego County, and posted nationally yesterday: "The Island is a Living Entity, as revealed in that Comic Book Walt was reading in one of the first Episodes." We just viewed last night's episode off the DVR...
So that can be something the two of you can hash over if we cross paths at ComicCon in July...

CITY is pretty far afield from anything DR. WHO has done, fortunately. But I wouldn't put it past a Time Lord to drop by and investigate.
Trivia question: which recent episode of LOST contains the most new mysteries that seem almost impossible to solve all together? (I don't know the answer!)

I, too, am a LOST fanatic.
To answer your question Greg, that would be last week's episode "Cabin Fever."
-Who was Locke's father, who was "twice as old" as his mother? Christian again?
-Why did Clair abandon her baby to join Christian in Jacob's cabin? What is she DOING there?
-When will the "orderly" that we have seen before reappear to Locke and what is the favor he will ask him to return? ("You will owe me one.")
-Will Penny indeed rescue Desmond, who stayed behind when Saiid took the boat to rescue some from the island (Remember that Ben has vowed to kill Penny in return for Alex being killed.)
-What is the device on the captain's left upper arm?
-Why wasn't Jacob himself in the cabin? Does Christian truly speak for him?
-How will Locke move the island?
-Why did the "other" from the future hurriedly leave when the young Locke chose the knife during the "test"?
-Finally, what did Ben mean when he responded to Locke "You're certainly not." (like me) This seems very important.

I'm glad I'm not the one trying to figure out this plot... But I eagerly await the resolution(s)!
