What I bought – 13 October 2010

Our nation has grown by its need for the unnecessary — another name for human progress. (Daniel Boorstin, from Cleopatra’s Nose)

Ryan Sook makes everything better! Estrogina and the Zamoran pirates need to get an ongoing title NOW! Naked chicks and giant robots! Did they honestly think it could be an ongoing? Naked chicks and giant Vikings! I couldn't resist! CBR reviews get quoted on the front of Marvel books, but God forbid they quote me! Yet another cool cover! It's all true! That dude needs to chillax! I hope there's bloodshed and ugly-bumpin' in this book! Yay!  More dinosaurs! Dang, this looks awesome! It's all European and shit! So much funny!

What I bought – 9 September 2010

“They were lovers of peace,” Gaudior replied shortly. “Your planet does not deal gently with lovers of peace.” (Madeleine L’Engle, from A Swiftly Tilting Planet)

Oh, G-Mozz ... I want so much to love your Batman work! That blood is really going to mess up that puzzle! Ten for ten in great covers! Why can't they just get along? She must have had butt implants or something! Well, this is a misleading cover! I love this series more each issue! Sigh - this has been fun It's a MANLY hug! It's all fun and game until ... well, you know I sure hope there's violence and nudity in this! Who names their kid 'Shadrach'?  I mean, really?

“Concentration-camp existence … taught us that the whole world is really like a concentration camp,” wrote Tadeusz Borowski. “The weak work for the strong, and if they have no strength or will to work – then let them steal, or let them die. … There is no crime that a man will not commit in order to save himself. And, having saved himself, he will commit crimes for increasingly trivial reasons; he will commit them first out of duty, then from habit, and finally – for pleasure. … The world is ruled by neither justice nor morality; crime is not punished nor virtue rewarded, one is forgotten as quickly as the other. The world is ruled by power …” (Otto Friedrich, from The End of the World)

Sadly lacking in bottles of rum! Well, this title leaves no doubt about what's happening! Bruce is looking a little chunky on that cover! Yay!  It's back! Francavilla really ought to mix up the layouts of the covers! Warning: This is the only time Jack appears in this comic! Once again ...... we get the story behind the cover! Yes, these aren't listed alphabetically, because of Mouse Guard's squareness and double-sidedness! Too much black! What's this?  No giant white space on this cover?  It's a Festivus Miracle! I'm not sure, but I think that '7' is just a little small There's a disturbing lack of Spoon in this issue I love how Rictor is running away like a scaredy-cat! Unfortunately, the actual comic does NOT feature Oscar Hempel's Merry-O-Nettes! Sam Kieth doing a book about Arkham Asylum?  Yeah, I'll take that! Not unlike Picasso, Gantz has a blue phase

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
