OHHHH!! YES!!!


Sadly, it arrived on the 20th, the same day I left town, but I wasn’t home to receive it.  I had to wait a week for a book that cost me more than half a month’s rent, and I desperately can’t afford it right now but THIS THING.

My roommate has been terrified enough by my enthusiasm this night.  I shall take pictures tomorrow when he isn’t around.

Viz haul, in particularly poor quality.  But hooray for that Genbu Kaiden volume, I’ve been waiting for that.  Come to think of it, I should start that over at the beginning.

Christmas haul.  I love that my mother got me Tharg’s Creepy Chronicles (which is actually really good!  I was worried about the short stories!) and Black Swan Green.
I’ve only got a few more Big Book Ofs to go before I’ve got the whole set.  Hooray!

Viz haul. Seriously good stuff. 21st Century Boys? Dengeki Daisy? Strobe Edge? I’m a happy camper.

older comic shop haul, and I think the last of the old photos I needed to clear out.  A miscellaney, but Jennifer Blood is still my very favorite.  Justice League Dark was an impulse, and not one I follow regularly, but I liked it well enough to pick up that older Hellblazer collection.

Sometimes, I dig through my longboxes and find things I forgot I had.  This may be the best cover to any comic ever.  We’ve been struggling to catch up for 50 years.

Work haul.  More war comics (one of the smaller purchases I mentioned earlier), but the real find here was that volume of Fresh Pulp.  I got it for $.50!  Score! 
All Man is a great book, too.  It’s an art book that chronicles men’s magazines from the 30s-50s.  Lots of Ernest Hemingway love in there.

Work haul.  Someone sold us every war comic published in the 70s.  I let the Marvel and Charleston hoard go, but I had to have me the DC stash.  I’ve been buying it in small portions over the past several months.  A shame the war stuff didn’t make it with the New 52, but now I have plenty to read.  Weird War in particular is the best.

Evanston run.  Picked up the last few volumes of the Boys a bit back, went back recently for the final.  I liked it so much I started it back over from the beginning and re-read it.  Billy Butcher is such a great character.

Comic shop run from October again.  An off week with only a pile of 2000AD, so I bought some graphic novels.  My recent Scalped obsession was fed, but they didn’t have any more in that series.  Nor did they have the first Hellblazer collection.  Little did I know those were being redone, or I would have held out for the new edition.  Blast.  And Battlefields, because you can’t go wrong with Garth Ennis and Carlos Esquerra.
