Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you. Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for…The Weekly Static! Welcome back, everybody…glad you could join me again!

● Spotlight a news item we might've missed that you should find interesting.
● Feed my insatiable ego with humble offerings of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Superman Funkos, and a plethora of Eisner Award nominations.
