What I bought – 28 September 2011

“… All idealization makes life poorer. To beautify it is to take away its character of complexity — it is to destroy it.” (Joseph Conrad, from The Secret Agent)

Hipsters assemble! There's only one thing on this cover that is not misleading! 'How?  How?  How can I get Kool-Aid out of the carpet?!?!? Look out for the Joker truck! If comics have taught us anything, it's never trust anyone with a minister's collar on! Is it a mirage? More fun with Brian Braddock! More fun with annotations! Maybe now everyone will get off my case about the fact that I haven't read 'Blankets' Man, Henry Flint is good

What I bought – May and June 2011

Hey, look at that! I’m back in Arizona and I picked up almost two months’ worth of comics! Yeah, I’m not going to review them properly here – that would take waaaaaaaay too long. This is more of a “What I bought and the random thoughts I have about the issues and, why not, what I did in Pennsylvania for seven-and-a-half weeks.” Can you handle that??????

Box of Comics: July 2009

You’ve read the best, now read the rest! The internet’s most belated comic reviews are back! Thrill to my extended verbiage on fine comics periodicals such as Atomic Robo, Batman & Robin, the Captain Britain finale, two flavors of Doctor Who, the Metalocalypse/Goon crossover, and the first Spider-Man comic I’ve bought in ten years! I swear, I put half my pull list on the “wait for trade” pile and I’m still spending the same amount of money on singles!

Once again, thanks to the Discount Comic Book Service for being such nice chaps.

What I bought – 22 and 29 July 2009

Two weeks of reviews! Normally I’d just skip last week’s haul, but what the hell. I’m sure the kids can look after themselves, right? I’ll try to keep the ones about last week’s books short, though. The operative word being “try.”

What I bought – 15 July 2009

This week: I’m still having fun with the new format! I added something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but could never figure out. Other Greg does it all the time, though. Can you suss out what it is?

Plus: Nudity and Swearing! And the return of a long-absent publisher! Whoo-hoo! (Seriously, lots of swearing. You’ve been warned. And no, this is not a judgment about these comics at all. I just bought a lot of comics, and a lot featured swearing and nudity, so I thought it would be fun to compare and contrast.)

Box of Comics: June 2009

And lo, the first round of cuts to my pull list hits, as I try to wean myself off single issues and into trade paperbacks. What did I decide to keep buying in singles? Join me under the jump for the stuff I bought that’s worth typing about: robots, space horses, vampires, more vampires, and Batman. What’s most surprising, dear reader? My favorite comic this month wasn’t written by Grant Morrison. (Gasp!) Continue Reading »
