New Comic for January 7

This is the week that our comics cuts really take effect and suffice it to say, I have one comic that I am buying this week! It is Boys #26 from Dynamite Entertainment. What is ironic to me is that even if I had not cut back, I would still only be getting five books this week.

The other ones I would have picked up are:

Detective Comics #852

Secret Six #5

Trinity #32

Sword #14

This actually makes me feel quite a bit better. I figured I would go through horrible withdrawals, but it doesn't seem to be nearly as bad as I had anticipated.

On that note, many thanks to you folks who have shared that you have cut way back or discontinued collecting. It made me feel a bit better, and it made me sad at the same time. Is it the economy, the price of comics, or a bit of both? I feel a rant coming on!

Have a great night and I will see you back here soon!

I cut back-- 15 years ago when they were still cheap...

Hey there, my metal sister--
--the good news is that I just heard "Blind in Texas" by W.A.S.P. on Hair Nation today! ;)

Swinebread, I agree. I am terrified that if I don't read comics anymore, my blog will be obsolete. Calling it Comics Fairplay kinda pigeon holed me. LOL!

Kirk, you rule! I was reading old back issues the other day and marveling at the 20 cent price tag. Those were the days. LOL.

I am going to go see Buckcherry, Papa Roach, and Avenged Sevenfold in concert next month here in my little town. It is not my old school stuff, but I figured it would be fun!
