What I bought – 6 February 2013

“Italians have made the family an extremist group. The family is the instrument of revenge.” (Don DeLillo, from The Names)

What I bought – 29 August 2012

“I need to know secrets and have secrets and keep secrets. I need to be confided in. Each time you come alone and you don’t tell anybody, that’s a sexual secret. The event has taken place and only you know about it and you have ministered to yourself in exactly the way you wanted to and thought of exactly what you wanted to think about. And each of these thousands of times you have come alone constitutes a perfectly unique moment, with precisely this order of images and that fold of yourself being moved by your middle finger in just that way and that biting of lower lip with exactly that degree of force, all entirely private.” (Nicholson Baker, from Vox)

How does she run up the cover like that?!?!? This should be called Man With Shotgun! 'Oh no, Chelsea - you got a nostril ring?  Why, dear God, WHY?!?!?!?' Now Spencer is just fucking with us I will not apologize for my love of Looker! Well, dang, that's a cool cover So much potential! The wait is over! So charming and evil! Take your time, gentlemen - no hurry! The onslaught begins! It's a shame the dimensions are smaller, but it's still a great comic!
