GIRL GENIUS OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 AGATHA AWAKENS (I've been waiting to get into this series for years. I love Deluxe HCs. So shiny)
Gnh. Spent ages trying to find (and eventually getting) vols 1 and 2 for Mrs G for Christmas and now here's a shiny new HC of those stories for half the price. Oh well.

GIRL GENIUS OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 AGATHA AWAKENS (I've been waiting to get into this series for years. I love Deluxe HCs. So shiny)
Gnh. Spent ages trying to find (and eventually getting) vols 1 and 2 for Mrs G for Christmas and now here's a shiny new HC of those stories for half the price. Oh well.

Turns out its not a 'Deluxe HC' at all. Its actually the same size and shape of a regular US comic book. The soft cover TPs represent the art in its proper size and shape much more accurately then this HC (just to be clear, the artwork is formatted correctly in the HC, there's just a lot of unused space in the top and bottom margins). Honestly I'm hugely disappointed in the HC, as I was expecting it to be oversized and formatted like the TPs. I might not even buy it, and look into the TPs if they get solicited again.

But it does seem like the TPs are hard to find right now, so... I'm still toying with the idea of picking up the HC anyway. I'm just really disappointed it wasn't 'Deluxe'.


PS: SAGA #1 was PHENOMENAL. That is all.

Just a Aux$20 week for Stevie:

FRANKENSTEIN AGENT OF SHADE #7

NINJETTES #2

CROSSED BADLANDS #1

Read the first 10 pages of SAUCER COUNTRY #1 in-store & it wasn't doing it for Stevie. May give it another chance if any of his local libraries acquires the trade down the track.

His pre-order of CORTO MALTESE TP VOL 01 BALLAD OF THE SALT SEA didn't ship this week so shall pay the electricity bill instead.  Anyone see a copy at their LCS?

"We'll send all these nasty words to Aunt Jane. Don't you think that would be fun?"

*Sigh* Diamond doesn't appear to be remotely interested in fulfilling approximately a third of Stevie's pre-orders.

It's almost as if they'd rather he take up another hobby  ;)

Nice week ahead:

AXE COP TP VOL 03 - It's easy to dismiss this as a gimmick, but it remains one of the most inventive webcomics on the intertubes.
DARK HORSE PRESENTS #10
GOON #38 - Consistently one of the most enjoyable books on the stands.
RAGEMOOR #1 - Strad and Corben back together? Awesome.
DOMINIQUE LAVEAU VOODOO CHILD #1 - If Saucer Country was indicitive of the quality of the new Vertigo, I don't have much hope for this.
ROCKETEER ADVENTURES 2 #1   - Volume 1 was one of the more enjoyable anthologies of last year.
HOAX HUNTERS #0   - Premise looks interesting.
LAST OF THE GREATS TP VOL 01 -  Fialkov is one his way to becoming a star.
NEAR DEATH #6   - Probably the most underrated books on the stands right now.
PROPHET #23 - If you love 2000AD and aren't buying this...than you probably don't really love 2000AD.
SUPERCROOKS #1 - Worth a shot.
EIGHTBALL LIKE A VELVET GLOVE CAST IN IRON TP NEW PTG (O/A)   $19.95 - Love me some Dan Clowes. One of the few I'm missing,
SIXTH GUN #20

Really? Because I found Saucer Country to be quite enjoyable. I liked the set up, the characters, and the presentation. There is a lot of places the series can go. Between Spaceman, Fairest, and Saucer Country I'm not doing too bad with Vertigo right now. I didn't care for the Voodoo Child preview in the The Unexpected anthology one-shot though, so I gave it a pass.

Yeah..sorry. I liked the premise, but thought the way it was laid out was very clunky, and not really well-written. It was the poor execution that lost me. And to be honest, I would say that about pretty much all the Cornell I've read. I'm just not on his bandwagon, though I've tried...repeatedly. I will still try another issue, as I want nothing more than to start enjoying Vertigo books again.

But for me, they're fading fast. My two favourite current Vertigo series (Scalped and Northlanders) are ending soon. Spaceman is half-done. Fairest and Saucer Country were really weak (In my humble opinion only, of course), and I have no hopes for Dominique based on the previews released so far. I will give the New Deadwardians the benefit of the doubt though those previews haven't bowled me over either. Then there's I, Zombie, which I've always felt was just mediocre, and Fables, which somehow changed from one of the very best comics on the stands to an incomprehensible mess in the space of two years. That leaves Sweet Tooth, which still kicks me in the pants with every issue, as the only monthly Vertigo book that I'm still enjoying. I never thought in a million years that I would only like one Vertigo comic.

I'm still enjoying Unwritten. However, there was no sign of the latest issue in FP on Saturday. Which was annoying, as it was the only thing I wanted to buy. I even passed on the new Northlanders collection in a fit of pique.

Man we must just have very different tastes. Fables is still month-in and month-out one of my most anticipated titles. If I had to drop everything but five titles, Fables would easily make the cut.

Oh, I think we have much more in common than we don't. Our pull lists are usually pretty similar...We just disagree on a few :-) For me, Fables started to decline the minute we found out who the Adversary was. To me, the story was over after that, and nothing he's done since has been able to convince me otherwise. BUT, that's just my opinion. I know sales are still relatively strong, so what do I know :D

Oh yeah, I forgot Unwritten. Yeah, still enjoying that, but it seems to be winding down, no?
