I waited until Saturday because my comic book store was having a sale again (why do the good issues always come out the week of the sale?)  Anyway, when I finally went I got:

- Avengers Fairy Tales 1-4
- Booster Gold 35
- Dark Wolverine 89
- Justice League: Generation Lost 7
- Ultimate Comics Spider-Man 13
- 52 1 TPB
- Blue Beetle: Reach for the Stars TPB
- Blue Beetle: End Game TPB

The quarter bins were gone (thank god) so nothing from there.

I have to say--I LOVED the Avengers Fairy Tales.  Originally I was just going to just buy the Young Avengers one, but I figured "why the hell not" and got them all.  I was not dissappointed.  I especially liked the Pinocchio one with Vision and Pym (#2).  If you haven't read them, you should check them out.

I was looking through my Wolverine: Origins 5 trade today, and I was feeling nerdy so I was looking at the dates in the Daken flashbacks.  I came across two conclusions.  The first is that Way can't keep his dates straight over the span of two issues, and the other is that Daken is the scariest 14-year-old ever.

Too much thinking ahead (image heavy) )

Slow Comics day:
- Avengers Prime 2
- Deadpool 1000
- Red Hood: The Lost Days 3
- Shadowland 2
- Shadowland: Bullseye Oneshot
- Young Allies

The Shadowland: Bullseye oneshot was... all right.  A bit disappointing, really.  And Avengers Prime 2 felt like an inbetween of 1 and whatever 3 will be.  It would have meant a disappointing week had Red Hood: The Lost Days not been really good.  It was definitely better than the first two, and it reminds me how much I love Jason.

Quarter bin: 
- The Authority 5
- Azrael: Agent of the Bat 79, 80, 82, 97, 1,000,000
- Black Lightning 1
- Bullseye: Greatest Hits 2
- icandy 2
- Justice League Elite 3
- JSA Classified 13, 16, 19, 35
- Martian Manhunter 1
- Marvel Divas 1
- Marvel Mystery Comics 1

- The OMAC Project (Infinite Crisis Special) 1

- Thunderbolts 78
- True Believers 3
- Ultimate Fantastic Four 60
- Ultimate Vision 0
- Vigilante 1,2

34 comics is a sign that I need to lay off the quarter bin for a while.

A lot of good comics came out today; I had no idea until I got there.

- Age of Heroes 3
- The Avengers 3
- Batman Beyond 2
- Dark Wolverine 88
- Darkwing Duck 2
- Deadpool 25
- The New Avengers 2
- Time Masters: Vanishing Point 1

I've already barrelled through all of them.  I had to.  If you like Darkwing Duck and you aren't reading the comic do it.  It's the closest thing to getting a new cartoon as anything.  Dark Wolverine was satisfying because Daken finally stopped feeling sorry about himself and went back to what he does best--be a dick.  And he does it so well.  Time Masters was great because we got to see some little!Rip, daddy!Booster time, and those two pages alone are worth the cost of the comic.

The Avengers was... eh.  I'll rant about it later.

Also, I promise I'll do some sort of personal journal update soon.  Hopefully tomorrow.  I've been busy with other stuff.

I know I'm posting this at an ungodly early hour, but I'm going to the zoo today with my parents (I feel 5 again, but in a good way) so I'm up early.


I consider myself a decently savvy shopper, however sometimes the temptation to spend money gets me, and gets me hard.  Luckily for me I just had my grad party on the 12th, so I didn't wind up spending much of my own money.  Part of me thinks thats the only reason I spent so much, whereas the other part of me wonders if I would have bought it all regardless.

It started on Friday, when I walked into a Borders for the first time in a long time with a $35 gift card (well a $25 gift card and a $10 one) and walked out with the DC Enclycopedia.  I was originally intending to buy the Marvel one, but then I realized I am far more familiar with Marvel characters, so I picked up the DC one for now.  I'll get the Marvel one eventually.

Saturday was the real kicked.  My local comic book store had an invitation-only sale.  Everything in the store was 20% off, supplies and back issues were 30% off.  My inner woman came out at the word "sale" and I spent $130 when all was said and done.  Granted $120 of that was in gift cards, but still.  I picked up:

- Darkwing Duck 1
- Dark Wolverine 87
- New Avengers (Vol. 2) 1
- Avengers Academy 1
- Batman 700
- Age of Heroes 2
- Return of Bruce Wayne 2
- Deadpool 24

Then I moved on to the trades section, and picked up:
- Formerly Known as the Justice League
- Justice League International 1-3
- Blue Beetle - Shellshocked (aka Volume 1)

I also picked up bags because I ran out and box dividers.

I actually went to the sale immediately before a 3 hour road trip to a friends house in PA, mainly because I didn't want to miss this sale.

And if that isn't reason enough to show that I shouldn't be spending money...  Barnes and Noble was having a clearance on graphic novels the 22nd (it's still going on now, but a lot of the marvel titles are gone by now).  One of the comic book writers (Dan Slott, I think) mentioned it on twitter, and well... $34 later I'm waiting on the following titles:

- Captain America: The Death of Captain America, Volume 3: The Man Who Bought America
- Mighty Avengers, Volume 1: The Ultron Initiative
- Mighty Avengers, Volume 2: Venom Bomb
- The New Avengers, Volume 7: The Trust
- New Avengers, Volume 5: Civil War
- New Avengers, Volume 8: Secret Invasion, Book 1
- New Avengers, Volume 9: Secret Invasion, Book 2
- New Avengers: Illuminati
- Ultimates 2, Volume 1: Gods and Monsters
- The Marvel Universe Roleplaying Game: Guide to the Hulk and the Avengers

I tried to pick up Ultimates 1, Volume 1, but it sold out like immediately before I hit send.

So yeah, not spending a lot of money in a while.

I know, much like my rant on The Avengers 1, that I'm late to the party, but oh well.  I've gotten around to reading it NOW and NOW I feel like ranting.  Spoilers for Dark Wolverine 86 and Wolverine Origins 47/48 ahead.
