I went to a comics convention with a friend Sat. Bought 11 books, collections of classic newspaper strips, studies of 2 famous artists, and a book of pulp related new fiction.

I know. You would expect me to have gotten more.

Not from that angle. But contemporary comics are anathema to me.

The costumes at Saturday's con were not impressive. Save for one, a Blackhawk. The fact that the wearer was a lady did not detract.

Recheck: 12 books

I have the Didache in Greek. The full title would be "Training of the Twelve Apostles", in Greek Διδαχη των δωδεκα αποστολων, or in Latin Didache XII Apostolorum - mentioned several times in the Catechism of the Catholic Church In particular, the Didache tells about the end of the world:

What do you think about that?

It was ok, but it didn't live up to my expectations given St. Therese's high praise of it.
