What I bought – April 2014 selections

mdart1001 (2)

I had killed a man. I had killed a man to get a woman. I had put myself in her power, so there was one person in the world that could point the finger at me and I would have to die. I had done all that for her, and I never wanted to see her again as long as I lived.

That’s all it takes, one drop of fear, to curdle love into hate. (James M. Cain, from Double Indemnity)

Page-by-page with Infinity #1

08-16-2013 01;36;32PM

It’s been a few years since I wanted to read a Big Two event, and I don’t know if I’ll read this entire saga, but I figured it was time for a page-by-page breakdown of at least the first issue, like I used to do back in the olden days (of 2011, that is). Plus, as an added bonus, I’m doing this as a live blog – I have not cracked open Infinity #1 yet, so these thoughts will be kind of loose and completely raw, just like your mom. HEY-OOOHHHHHHHHHH! Let’s do this thing! MASSIVE SPOILERS BELOW, in case you couldn’t guess. If you haven’t read Infinity yet, grab your copy and follow along! If you don’t want to read Infinity, well … read this instead and you’ll know exactly what happens!
