What I bought – 10 August 2011

By the river. She was standing by the river. She was dancing without moving. By the river. She wasn’t beautiful exactly; she was like a shimmer in the distance. She was so white his reservation eyes suffered. (Sherman Alexie, from “All I Wanted to do Was Dance”)

Dustin Nguyen is soooooo awesome Oh, the temptation! That can't be feminist-friendly! It's TABOO! This cover would be much better if they put a POW! on it Tony doesn't forge a sword in this comic, which is a damned shame Why isn't Franken-chick green on this cover? SCORE! Look, it's a boomerang pun! I'll get it out of the way in the alt-text: TIME TRAVEL IS IMPOSSIBLE! More good Kordey art for the haters! Bolland!  Gracia-Lopez!  Russell!  Holy crap!!!!!! More Fiona Staples goodness! You cannot deny Risso's excellence! So many phallic symbols! Horrific violence in Gantz?  Unprecedented! Why should I read it for free when I can buy it? Holy crap, this looks awesome Spies!!!!!

I Really Shouldn’t, But I Do Kind Of Want This

Frank Miller’s Spirit Storyboards. A whole book of ‘em, along with the script for a movie I haven’t bothered to see yet. I mean, I want this more, but as far as uneccessary uses of Will Eisner’s iconic adventure character/generic vehicle for telling the stories he wanted to tell, it’s certainly up there. Of course, that’s partially because I would have much rather seen Frank Miller do a Spirit GN than a Spirit movie, but that’s me. And I do already have the storyboards for Sin City and 300, so there’s some completist appeal too.
