Last week I lied to you, dear readers. I thought my pull list was only one book long, but, well, Diamond’s site lied to me and when I got to the shop I got a nice surprise, as Doktor Sleepless and Air were also out. I must admit that I didn’t take anybody’s recommendations last week, as I was excited to have three books I wanted rather than one, and I’ve been tradewaiting Fables for a while (sorry, guys).
The Hellblazer Christmas special was good fun, though, with several different stories by different writer-artist combos adding up to an oversize issue. John Constantine’s been around for so long and been done by so many different writers and artists that it’s fun to see old faves come back as well as new people get a crack at him. My long-standing comic-crush…
I’m in South Carolina for the next two weeks visiting the fam, and don’t have access to my favorite local comic shop (Brave New Worlds at 45 N 2nd St, Philadelphia! No, they didn’t pay me to say that) so I might not get to pick up new books this Wednesday. I have to drive an hour and a half to get to the comic shop in Savannah. Yes, I will do it, but probably not on Christmas Eve, especially since none of my regular books come out this week.
Still, I’m always looking for your recommendations. I’m tempted by the Young Liars trade, so your opinions are especially welcomed on that book, but as always, feel free to pitch me anything you love, as long as you back it up.
Happy Holidays, everyone.
