No comics this week!

Saturday is usually the day when my comics arrive, but Brightest Day #13 was the only comic on my pull list, and it wasn't worth the extra shipping cost to have it sent to me, so I figured I'd wait till next week.

It feels like I haven't read a good comic in a looooong time!  Espeically back issues.  Every older story that I'm currently interested in reading, like the original L.E.G.I.O.N. run, isn't available in trade paperback format, and I don't feel like hunting down single issues.

Oh, and there always this:

My sweet, wonderful Adam Strange comic that I've been waiting for since August looks like it will never see the light of day at this rate!  I need my rocket packs and ray guns fix, darnit!!

In other news, you probably won't be seeing much of me this month.  Like kalinara over at Pretty Fizzy Paradise, I'm participating in National Novel Writing Month (nanowrimo, for short) for my fourth year in a row.  As you can imagine, writing 50,000 words in 30 days is kinda a time drain.

Some good comics are coming out next week, so I can't wait until then!

I was gonna participate in the NaNoWri this year..then..huh..forgot :/
Now I'm ashamed to start off too late, so...
Better luck next time!

At least there's ol' TPB compilations of things like the JLI, 70s/80s/90s Superman or Sword of the Atom (kickass book if I may say so)!

Though the funnier comics, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle (Ted) or Blue Devil haven't been collected. (apart from one or two showcases..but they're I black and white..and on cheap paper..can't they reprint them like the JLI run?)

It's so frustrating when you are waiting on a late comic.

You are VERY brave to be participating in the nanowrimo thingie. I hope that it goes will certainly be keeping you busy!

Boy, when we get that issue of B&B it better be DARN GOOD!

A friend of mine had that original L.E.G.I.O.N. stuff and I read his and I remember it being great, it sold me on Lobo. I miss when I had more collector friends to borrow stuff from, haha!

Sorry, Liss, it looks like we'll never see that issue, as JMS is stepping away from monthly comics, including Superman and Wonder Woman...
