New Comics Day
I just become aware of Talk To My Face, and I have to say that the tone and attitude of the site's author appeals to me greatly.
Anyway, on to some of the new releases:
The "Silver Age JLA by Alex Ross" poster looks like it was recycled from one of those "collector plates" they used to sell at the Warner Brothers Stores. Exactly how big a dent did it make in Ross' annual income when all those commissions for "limited edition" products disappeared?
With contributions from both Mike Miller and James Hudnall, Comic Book Digest might have well as just slapped a big sticker on it that says: Comics for people who still take Ann Coulter seriously...
(Yes, I realize the above comment was probably needlessly bitchy, but those two guys really bug me...)
The most recent issue of Video Watchdog has a still photo of Sean Connery as the Green Knight in it...it's an image of surreal beauty, it is.
I was helping a customer with his subscription today and he wanted me to put him down for every title within a certain "family" of titles. He then went on to list exceptions to that, which excluded almost every series, mini-series, one-shot, special, annual and the like within that family, basically leaving one title out of the half-dozen or so that are regularly published to be pulled for him. Instead of, you know, just asking me to put him down for that particular title.
