This week, I'm too busy to worry about comics

And here's the reason why:

That's right, call me Matthew Brady, proud papa! My wife and I delivered our daughter, Magnolia Rose Brady, at 12:04 on March 3rd (my wife did most of the work though). She came a bit early, but she's very healthy, and although I'm biased, I think she's the most beautiful baby ever. I mean, come on, look at her:

You better not disagree with me!

So that's why I haven't been posting the last few days. I'll go ahead and do the look at the week's comics, but it'll be a quick one, so don't expect much in the way of insight or anything. Also: I did a collaborative review of Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 #3 with Martijn Form at Comics Bulletin, so there's something to read if you've been missing me.
