What I bought – 29 September 2010

Neither of the two people in the room paid any attention to the way I came in, although only one of them was dead. (Raymond Chandler, from The Big Sleep)

This is the end, my only friend, the end ... Pure, unadulterated awesome! Pulp at its pulpiest best! Yeah, I don't know what's going on either with this cover - I just enjoy the drawing! Oh, that's not going to end well There has to be a more efficient knife he can use! Man, I love Brereton's art! Daisy's wearing a push-up bra underneath that leather! Yes, I should have gotten this years ago, but at least I got it, right?

The difference between men and sheep seems to be that men, unlike sheep, need not be led to the slaughter but are carried there on the wings of their own enthusiasm. (William Gerhardie, from God’s Fifth Column)

Thank Vishnu he's not wearing that thing in this issue! Will I piss off Brian Clevinger yet again?!?!?!? Who knew Martians flew around in actual flying saucers? Only three months late?  Heck, that's not bad at all! All comics should end with as awesome a last page as this! Mark Buckingham had to leave his own title to do a cover or two! Hot diggity, I love that cover! Mars seems awfully crowded in this issue, doesn't it? Totally worth the wait! Yet another fantastic cover! Man, the main character does some prodigous projectile vomiting in this issue!

They hated Thomas for his courage, his brief moment as a bird. Everybody has dreams about flying. Thomas flew.

One of his dreams came true for just a second, just enough to make it real. (Sherman Alexie, from “This is What it Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona”)

3-D Man's arm makes it look like Jimmy has a multicolored moustache, which I think would improve his chances with the ladies! I totally want someone to send me that postcard! They should use the Bat-Phone in the 'real' Bat-titles! Big pictures split into many covers often look weird, like this one does You know, conceptually, this is a dumb cover, but it just looks so gorgeous! This cover has nothing to do with what's inside, but it's still kind of neat! I love this comic a little more each issue, I tells ya! Overcompensating much, King Richard? This is a really misleading cover You there!  Yub ym koob! What is it with those guys from Perth? Yet more Vertigo crime!  Whoo-hoo! Well, this is going to get messy

“It took me some time to figure out that love is in the details. It’s in the books and records and the stereo and the convertible. Love is always in the details. And that’s where the pain is too.” (John Crowley, from Aegypt)

Soraya isn't really the star of the book, but you never pass up a chance to put a hot chick on the cover! He uses that gun to swat insects.  True! This is only the start of the egg puns! Sue is actually on this cover ... you just can't see her! I already have this cover tattooed on my ass! Long may the mullet wave! Well, hello there!  Where've you been? That cover is sure to please the ladies! Oh, Mouse Guard, why do you ever go away? 'It's your turn to pick up the tab!' 'The hell you say!' I'm not quite sure why Thomas Edison is on this cover, but whatever Every once in a while I have to bring up how very much I hate that trade dress When in doubt, put a stripper on the cover! Get funky, Nick! The entire cover is a synopsis of the interior, because Brian Hurtt is awesome! Why the hell does Blair Butler keep getting quoted on books? I love Johnson's cover designs! Boy, I really hope this book is back on track! It's for the kids! Also for the kids! Kids fighting Nazis?  Definitely for the kids! Okay, I can't work in the kid theme ... just buy the original Super Spy AND this, together! Well, I checked this out briefly, and it definitely looks like it's for the kids!
