What I bought – 7 March 2012

Above him there was now nothing but the sky – the lofty sky, not clear yet still immeasurably lofty, with gray clouds gliding slowly across it. “How quiet, peaceful, and solemn; not at all as I ran,” thought Prince Andrew — “not as we ran, shouting and fighting, not at all as the gunner and the Frenchman with frightened and angry faces struggled for the mop: how differently do those clouds glide across that lofty infinite sky! How was it I did not see that lofty sky before? And how happy I am to have found it at last! Yes! All is vanity, all falsehood, except that infinite sky. There is nothing, nothing, but that.

EDITED BY BRIAN TO ADD: Don MacPherson has a great piece on King City’s upcoming release from Image Comics here.

“Neat!” sez I “I’m going to try to read as many of these as I can.”

So here are the results of my quest.
