The APA, ever vigilant against the menace of free riders (and, I suspect, grossly overestimating the inelasticity of demand for APA sessions) isn’t
revealing the location of the session until we pick up our final programs at registration. But I’ll try to post the info as soon as I learn it.

The Mask of Anarky

Robin 181
The latest issue (#181) of Robin features the return of Anarky – sort of.

At first I was annoyed, since Anarky seemed to be blowing stuff up pointlessly – “chaos for fun.”

But it soon transpired that the guy wearing the Anarky outfit is actually the Batman villain Ulysses Armstrong, who seems to have the real Anarky – Lonnie Machin – imprisoned and on life support (and looking in pretty bad shape). What all that’s about remains to be seen.
