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??????

What I bought – 6 April 2011

A young girl, a frailty, simple and true, who had been unable to stand up from the piano and had had to be carried; a girl half his age; a girl who could not shoot a gun, had never been in an oyster house, atop a tower, or under the wharves; a girl hotter always than noon in August; a girl who knew nothing; had thrown him so hard that he would be out of breath forever. (Mark Helprin, from Winter’s Tale)

I know I'd be surprised if I found a tiny woman in my whiskey! You can't hide from the boobies! Well, I wouldn't want to see him coming out of the night at me, I'll tell you what My daughters could design a better trade dress than that! I miss Amadeus already! Auf wiedersehen, Misty! This cover doesn't even pretend to have anything to do with the interiors! That won't end well TOTALLY worth the wait! I have no idea why the cat doll is on this cover I'm back on board, baby! I'm digging the different colors on each cover! That's gotta hurt! Full of piratical goodness!

Thanks to the mild weather, the trees retained their foliage longer than usual. Red and gold, ocher and amber leaped to the eye. How beautifully the leaves aged on ten thousand twigs! No politics could produce such glory in a forest. Only so natural and simple a thing as death. (Frederic Morton, from A Nervous Splendor: Vienna 1888/1889)

What I bought – 5 January 2011

“I have told my sons that they are not under any circumstances to take part in massacres, and that the news of massacres of enemies is not to fill them with satisfaction or glee.

“I have also told them not to work for companies which make massacre machinery, and to express contempt for people who think we need machinery like that.” (Kurt Vonnegut, from Slaughterhouse-5)

Who doesn't heart Tabitha? Beware the 'roid rage! I have no idea what's happening on this cover Keepin' it old school! Just because she's dead doesn't mean she can't love! Biff!  Pow! WHO?  WHO?!?!?!? I hope an Eighties power ballad is playing in the background on this cover! Oh dear - it's never pretty!

If your best friend Harry has a brother Larry, who in five days from now is gonna marry, why would Larry hope you can make it there, if you can, ’cause in the ceremony you’ll be the best man? That doesn’t make any sense!

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.)
