New Comics Day
I can't remember the last time we were actually able to unload all the boxes and get everything organized and ready before we opened the doors, yet somehow we managed it yesterday.
It was a remarkably snark free day, as well, apart from the previously mentioned discussion of what a new issue of All Star Batman foretells for the next week or so of online comics discussion. Mike kept pointing out pages and dialogue he was certain were going to anger people unreasonably. I saw stuff in comics that will almost certainly anger people too, particularly Kirby purists, but it was in a book that doesn't come out until next week, so you'll all have to wait until then to get your ire up.
Which isn't to say the day was completely free of aggravations. A not insignificant number of items were missing from our shipment. I also discovered a new variation of "reading the comic when you have no intention of buying it," namely "tracing pictures out of the comic when you have no intention of buying it."
Highlights of the week were probably Full Moon Fever and the new Keith Knight book, The Passion of the Keef. Oh, and a bunch of super-hero comics came out too.
Speaking of which, I finally finished reading the comics that came out last week, and I've noticed a glaring and improbable continuity error in one of the Seven Soldiers books:
Lies! A damnable, dirty lie! There's no possible way Ted Grant lost to a match to a one-eyed mook who hangs out with a freakish super-genius baby!
