But the invasion force was millions upon millions and it was a massive task. To occupy the force while the Lanterns got to them the lord dreamer recruited the world's heroes to fight the invaders: Batman imagined himself a pirate and then a knight and then a 20's B-Reel adventurer, in each case dispatching the aliens in their different guises across different places and times. But the Super-powered were not the most noteworthy or triumphant of the day. The people who imagined themselves heroes were the most powerful, while Superman dreamt of being farmboy in Kansas little boys with big imaginations strode as giants from battlefield to battlefield.
In the end the night was won, but- as is the way with dreams- not enough people remembered the great battle of the Earth's dreams for even Bruce Wayne's great detective skills to corroborate the casual reports of dreams of fighting the following morning.

This represents the last two days' efforts.
For today we also have a couple of photos of things that caught my eye on my way to the shops:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HPJGQBR A survey! Have your say or just be part of the research. The survey question is What Are Your Top Ten Most Crucial Science Fiction or Fantasy Books? By crucial it could mean things you think are historically important, things that got you interested in the genre, things your bookshelf couldn't do without or things you just plain like. This will go into deciding what titles I tackle and do covers for at the end of the project, so you might even see your suggestion redesigned!
Stay lucky, everyone (new catchphrase :D)

|Picture of the day|
A poster from an 1884 American production of William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Macbeth, a tale of regicide and its aftermath. Starting anti-clockwise from top-left, we see Macbeth and Banquo meet the witches, Macbeth just after the murder of King Duncan, Banquo's ghost, and Macbeth dueling with Macduff. Over the centuries, the play has attracted some of the greatest actors in the roles of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The play has been adapted to film, television, opera, novels, comic books, and other media. Shakespeare borrowed the story from several tales in Holinshed's Chronicles, a popular history of the British Isles, although the story itself bears no relation to the actual history of Macbeth of Scotland.

The thing is...
Alot of people think that Homophobia is acceptable on the street. At the work place. In the classroom. I've been in those work places. Not always nice offices, but workplaces all the same. And I've been on those train carriages, and had to get off before attention was directed at me(sometimes immediately before). It's part of the fabric of aggression that people weave into their lives. So how are those people going to be reached by an ad whose premise is directly contrary to their experience?
Maybe Ogilvy have some other research. Maybe they know that the people they reach practice the same kind of double standard about homophobic language on the terraces that they do when they use 'gay' to mean rubbish or ineffectual? And they are trying to address those people? That does not speak very well of the average football fan, in my mind, but is possible.
As with all these campaigns, I am reminded of: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/20
