What Chris said. I was prepared for a big-ass manga week, and the sheer amount of stuff still caught me off guard.
And that's not even factoring in the much larger than usual number of Marvel comics that are shipping this week, either. I glanced at our Diamond invoice total, and it was the largest I remember seeing in years.
I also made an observation while running through the cycle sheets: there is an inverse ratio between the number of variant covers of Lady Death and the number of copies we actually sell. That is, the more variant covers there are, the fewer copies we end up selling over-all.
I just discovered that Immortal is out on DVD, so I moved it to the top of my Netflix queue. And here I was, still waiting patiently for a US theatrical release.
I've also been watching a fair number of horror films on Netflix lately. The most recent one I watched and actually enjoyed was Madhouse. On the one hand, I never need to see another movie in which changing the film speed is used to denote the presence of the supernatural. On the other, I thought the film actually mostly worked as a thriller, with an ending that veers dangerously close to the much maligned, and deservedly so, "twist" ending, but manages to make a certain sort of sense to the preceding events. A good, enjoyable, low-profile thriller.
