Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines Archive!

Yes, it’s a list of all the posts in which I’ve been looking at the first pages of comics. You could just click the category tag, but in this post, I’ve organized them! Whoo-hoo! I placed this on 1 January for the entire year, but now that the year is over, I thought I’d move it to the final day of the year!

What I bought – 17 October 2012

Aliye’s death, and its echoes, had been stilled by the greater horror of this mother’s death, which burned inside him like a smothered coal in the silence there. But Aliye had started dying from the moment his mother told him that they were not to marry, in spite of the bey’s gracious visit, in spite of the fine carpet, in spite of the words he has whispered to Aliye and which he had thought were true words. He knew then how it must end for her, though his mother said it would be otherwise. He wished that there were one fixed thing in the world that would never change, or disappoint him, or leave him, but he did not know what that might be, unless it was the idea of God, which was a certitude without delight or consolation. (Starling Lawrence, from Montenegro)

Insects are icky! I've always suspected! More bad-ass than Glory herself? Even more joy! Kate Bishop FTW! John ain't care! It's back! He doesn't look happy! What the heck is Hyde doing? Kill the alien!!!! Nobody likes Jamie's stand-up comedy! It's even crazier inside! Stephanie Hans is pretty darned good Don't look at me! It's too big, captain! One more time!

“It’s all right. Keep right on lying to me. That’s what I want you to do.” (Ernest Hemingway, from A Farewell To Arms)

That HAS to be a fire hazard! Time it takes her to braid her hair? Six hours! How nice! A bedtime story! Just when you think it can't get any more insane ... I should walk around with a toe tag on and freak people out Markham just enjoys ... hanging out Not a dream!  Not a hoax! Is Clor praying? You'll be smarter after you read this ... trust me! The end is nigh! This better be worth it! Vampires will be slayed! Nazis will be slayed! Hot welding action!

As you might be able to figure out, there’s a NSFW panel below. No gold star for figuring out which comic it comes from! I just thought it would be better to tell you now!
