Sundry Items 

The things you find used as book-marks in old comics...The red is actually much darker, but it's a weird shade of red that my scanner doesn't like.

Contests: Rick Gebhardt is giving away a copy of the Daisy Kutter trade. If your store has been anything like mine, they haven't been able to keep this series in stock, so this may be a great chance for you to get yourself a copy of this series.

Also, Milo George is selling swag on eBay to fund the fight against Endemic Treponematosis. Lots of good strip reprints to be had there, and auctions are kind of like contests.

Links: Word on the Street: Dr. Sordid almost always has something good to say in my comments section.

The same is true for Novice of Or Alcoholism.

Isaac's Toner Mishap is a hoot.

Jumbotron6000 is a hoot, too.

Broken Glass Makes Me Laugh has been entertaining me lately as well, as has The Collector's Mentality, both good new comics blogs that were brought to my attention.

Delenda Est Carthago is one of those great blogs that defies categorization because the author just talks about whatever art and culture he feels like talking about today. But I'm putting it under comics blogs because the ratio feels weighted that way.

Ross Richie's Boom! Studios has a blog now, which is great news.

And Antony Johnston has a blog as well, Mostly Black

Why is Blogger telling me my document conains no data when I try to make changes to my template?

I haven't really had too much to say on the topics of either Inventory Control or New Comics Day lately. I do feel vaguely dirty for buying one of those McFarlane Dragons action figures, but I have two big boxes full of dragon toys and models in my mother's garage as testimony to the fact that I don't have much self-control on that score. The real test will be the upcoming Red Riding Hood figure, and whether or not I can refrain from adding that to my collection.

I've also avoided saying anything about the Tenjo Tenge "controversy" (Chris Butcher has a good run-down), because honestly, I don't think it's a book that DC should have published. And for me to come out and say that the book's content is probably pushing the limits of acceptability, you know it must be some pretty extremely distasteful stuff. Not that I have a problem with the book being published, I just don't think this is something that should have had a DC logo on it. Because had they left it uncensored, the complaints would be that DC is now publishing porn, and DC would be in the same boat they're in now. Publishing the book was a no-win situation for a corporation like DC. And frankly, I'm a little bit worried about the manga fans who are getting in a snit about it. Because, essentially, what they're saying is "we want more violent, masochistic, border-line porn rape comics." And as it is, I already know more about my customers than I want to, thanks to their porn buying habits.

Speaking of porn, I've noticed that the only people who buy X-23 at our store fall into three categories: people who buy all X-Men comics, older men who buy all comics with female characters on the cover, and people who buy lots of porno and T&A comics. Make of that what you will. I know I am.

I can always tell what precise question Mike is being asked on the phone by his answer, the look on his face, and the tone of his voice. When he's being extremely polite, there's a good chance he's talking to the person who has already called four times today with the same question.
