As predicted, it was too good to be true... Order cancelled as the one copy they had was on hold for another customer...

Yeah, I let them know that if the customer fails to show up, I'll take it. I also sent an email to the local comic store that I am pretty sure won't have ordered a copy.

Oh well! The next one in the series is an Eisner one with some of his The Spirit work, so I will pre-order it.
FINE

Guh?! An Eisner Artist edition?! I might just have to have that. Do they have a list of upcoming ones? I'd love to know in advance.

Just got my Invincible 7 hardcover. I've only been reading it as it comes out in Ultimate Editions, so I'm really looking forward to cracking this one open.

The new DC logo hit the covers today:



I hate it.

It's like the C's swelling has just gone down enough to start removing the bandages.

Reading American Splendor, though I wish this particular collection was in chronological order.  I think it has all the content of the early issues, but not in order.  Still, good stuff.  Some of it is more interesting to me than others.

Also been reading Cross Game by Adachi Misturu.  I like it a lot, but he never topped Touch (and seems to reuse a lot of plot points).  Still, since there isn't a lot of interest to have Touch translated here (probably because of it's laidback slow storytelling style) it'll have to do.

Update to the earlier Wally Wood saga:

The customer did fail to pick up the book and the store contacted me! :D

So I rushed to the page to reorder the book only to find the price had doubled!   :(

I sent them an email saying thanks, but no thanks.  :'(

They quickly replied and said they'd revert the price to the original one for me and I have now ordered it! ;D

(I had made another largish order when I had missed the book that I might not have ordered otherwise, so it was a hundred bucks I didn't really have, but I couldn't pass it up and it's payday in a couple of days)
FINE

Random thought: that "we can be heroes" slogan at the top of the book reminds me of Bowie's song Heroes.

It's a pretty great song. Gotten into Bowie a lot lately Heathen is a pretty awesome album considering it's his last one (so far).

I just read the latest volume of GANTZ, which I have already read online, but it is always worth revisiting just because it's an addictive read.

Holy Moses, the Wally Wood book is enormous! And just beautiful.

I highly recommend preordering the Will Eisner one when it becomes preorderable, because this just became a prized possession. My wife and I looked at the first story's art last night (didn't actually read it, just admired it) before she headed out to record her podcast.

I'm gonna be looking at it before I draw each page of comics for the near future.
FINE

So here are some more announced Artist Editions, a couple are ones that I really, really have to get! Aside from the previously mentioned Eisner one...

Not that excited about this one:



Here is a MUST have:



And so is this:



WOW! Gotta keep my eye out for those!
