Oh dear sweet jimminey.
The Source Comics and Games was having an inventory reduction sale today. 30-odd linear feet of trade paperbacks and graphic novels, each five dollars regardless of original cover price.
I did put some back.
But I still walked out with a bundle.
I picked up Never As Bad As You Think, by Kathryn and Stuart Immonen. The Immonens are favorites of mine. I like Ms. Immonen’s work on Patsy Walker: Hellcat. And Mr. Immonen won my heart with his work in Marvel’s Ultimate Universe and, more than anything else, his work on Nextwave.
Ohh, I do love Nextwave.
Anyway, NABAYT is a steal at five dollars.
I also grabbed:
Templar, AZ vol 1 by Spike.
Southland Tales vol 1 by Richard Kelly and Brett Weldele.
Elektra and Wolverine: The Redeemer by Greg Rucka and Yoshitaka Amano.
The Roberts by Justin Shady, Wayne Chinsang, and Erik Rose. Which I picked up based on the high recommendation from iFanboy.
1985 by Mark Millar and Tommy Lee Edwards.
Titans: Old Friends by Judd Winick and Ian Churchill.
X-Force: Old Ghosts by Kyle, Yost, and Choi.
Tamara Drewe by Posey Simmons.
The Imposter’s Daughter by Laurie Sandell.
I’ll probably be reviewing some of these over on Fantastic Fangirls, as I get to them.
In other news, I am suspecting I don’t have the flu or anything like it, but merely have a sinus infection brought about by my last cold. I know, I know, it’s updates like these that keep you all coming back.
Here’s something for every writer: Essential 3rd Act Plot Twists. I particularly like the “Double Shyamalan” category.
