It's remarkably rare that a comic week comes along where there is so little that I plan to buy. Luckily, to make up for it, I was able to purchase Lost Girls, which Pete quickly took away from me and read for himself. He liked it, in any case.
I managed to make several unplanned purchases as well, mostly small and inconsequential trifles. Like about 30 or 40 back issues of late 80s Batman and Detective that Mike was desperate to unload at the store. So don't be terribly surprised if the site is Batman heavy for a little while.
I also purchased the DVD of Shock Treatment, the release of which I'd apparently managed to completely over-look.
And now I'm trying to pay bills on-line, an effort that is being continually thwarted by my bank's web-site's stubborn refusal to be up and working...
I'm not quite sure why, but every time I see this image somewhere they sell DVDs:
I think of this image:
And I'm not sure why. Okay, yeah, both have a slight similarity in the actor's poses. They're both sort-of, kind-of looking over the other's shoulders as they face different directions. And the typeface on the newer edition of the Redford/Newman film is similar enough to Brokeback Mountain's as to seem deliberate, but that could just as easily be blamed on unimaginative graphic designers with a misplaced fondness for all caps sans serif fonts.
Well, and there's the fact that both movies are about gay cowboys, but I'm still not sure why they look so familiar to me...
