More Album Cover Art!

First things first. Happy belated Thanksgiving to all our American listeners out there. I hope you all enjoyed your meleagridinae on Thursday, or whatever you usually gobble for your holiday dinner.

As we (or you, since we Canadians got on the ball quicker than the rest of you) contemplate the meaning behind the season, I am reminded of the Thanksgiving episode Thank You, God, in which Whit and his friends shared the things for which they were thankful.

That was a particularly poignant episode for me, since it included the powerful story of how Whit became his Christian. In spite of a terrible accident which left his mother blind, she was able to show him what it meant to have faith in God. Through her suffering, she was able to lead Whit to Christ. As a result, Whit says the person for who he is most thankful was his mother, Fiona Donneral. So that leads me to my question...

What person(s) are you most grateful for and why?

I couldn't resist. You gotta love the simple humor in comics. Anyway, leave a comment and let me know what people in your life you are thankful for and why. I'll share my own thoughts at some point next week.

As far as Adventures in Odyssey goes, there are a couples things of note to
report. Odyssey has released the album cover art for Album 32: Hidden Treasures, part of the repack series which will include Albums 16 through 35. I must admit I'm liking the new artistic style they're using for the album covers. It certainly has taken a few years to get acclimated to the new designs they've implemented in recent years, but you gotta admit the new version of the Album 32 cover easily trumps than the old one.

Odyssey has also released the album art cover for Album 49, which will include all the episodes from the current season. I'll be posting the front and back covers in an upcoming blog. Enjoy your weekend!
