Well, I was going to post my silly/interesting comic cover this morning, but, and you may not have noticed this, I made an image-heavy post on Monday. So until that scrolls off the page I may hold off on any more big images.
Little images, however, are fair game. I saw this in the store the other day and immediately realized that it Should Not Be:

I'm not looking forward to IDW's Shaun of the Dead comic. Primarily because the elements that made the film work so well, such as the acting and the timing, are not translatable to comics. But my experience with other IDW books also leads me to believe that the adaptation will be short on story, have over-praised art and be too expensive.
Added to my side-bar recently, because my attention was drawn to them and I liked what I saw, Kung Fu Monkey and Love Manga.

On the other hand, today is the day that we always seem to have people standing outside the door, staring in at us as we try to go through the boxes and unpack and sort everything before we open. Yes folks, standing there and staring at me actually does make me go faster and puts me in such a good mood when we do finally open, you come in, and the first words out of your mouth are "Did the new comics come in yet?"
