Today was comic book day, so when we went to pick up our books I wasn't surprised to find that there was a problem with one box not showing up. Fortunately, it only affected three titles for me rather then the usual dozen, so that was relieving. The bad news is that I have to go back again tomorrow for the others. What a pain in the butt. I can tell Diamond is real concerned about my comic book store. My owner is planning so send back every comic that doesn't sell by Monday back to counter this mess. I will once again keep you posted.
I have some links of interest I would like to bring to your attention. Some you may have seen and loved already; others may be new. Bear with me as I go down the line.
The coolest thing going is Redhead Fangirl's favorite redhead's countdown. Every day this month she is featuring a different redhead of note. This is really excellent reading, so go check it out!
Over at Spandex Justice, Vincent muses about "Miss Martian or When Artists Go Wrong". He makes some good points. As a longtime Titans fan, I really appreciate his insight.
Lisa at Sequentially Speaking gives us the lowdown about late books and how late they really are. It is a post I really appreciate, as I know I am not the only customer who walks into a shop and can't believe how late something is but not be able to back up exactly HOW LATE. She also points out a nudity slip in her post "Full Monty". Grown ups run over there and get informed so you know what the kiddies might see! I was shocked with Marvel's blatant panel!
Loren at One Diverse Comic Book Nation has a great weekly feature where he names his week's haul and gives pre-purchasing opinions about titles of interest. I love this, and am hooked- every week I will be sneaking over and taking a look.
Ink Destroyed My Brush is a favorite blog of mine. Charles has a great review of DC's New Frontier. Take a look- it is very concise and informative.
I should have went over to Comics Should Be Good before I did my Wizard rant. The esteemed Greg Burgas has his take on the Wizard Year End awards, and his is much better then mine. Take a look to see the wit and intelligence. As someone who has been fortunate enough to meet Greg, I really appreciate his opinion.
I am in blogoverse heaven tonight reading all this great material. It is nice to know there are so many quality, diverse people out there making their opinions known and letting the rest of us in on the great and not-so-great books and goings on in the comic universe.
