So most of the Diamond shipment arrived this week...except on box. With almost all of my reorders from the last couple of weeks in it.
ADVENTURES OF TINTIN NEW ED HC VOL 02, TINTIN AND ALPH ART SC, & TINTIN COMPLETE COMPANION HC
Oh, they always ship it all at once, don't they? With the album collections, I'm not sure if I'm incredibly happy with the reduced size. I dunno, it seems like a real poor fit for the French format of publishing. The ALPH ART book sounds really interesting as it sounds like all the layout/groundwork of Herge's style, before the finishing touches of his studio streamlined it into what we know today. When I started ordering these, I was surprised that Last Gasp had released so much of the North American supplemental material.
COMPLETE LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE HC VOL 01
Now that I've caught up with TERRY AND THE PIRATES, it is almost out of obligation that I move on and tackle yet another series of archival reprints. Because, ha!, I have nothing else better to do. I dunno, if Art Spiegelman and Seth like Gray's stuff so much, I can't imagine it will be awful.
FRED THE CLOWN GN
Considering this just plum didn't get shipped to us the first time (this is a replacement copy), and now the box that is missing contained it...perhaps it simply wasn't meant to be.
FROM THE ASHES #1
Sort of ordered on a lark (yeah, because I really don't have enough to fucking read), giving post-apocalyptic Bob Fingerman a try. You know, after I think about three or four attempts, I've never been able to finish BEG THE QUESTION?
You wouldn't expect this would still be in print after so many years, but hey!
HARLAN ELLISONS DREAM CORRIDOR TP VOL 01
I really liked Vol. 2.
POGOSTICK #1 & #2 PACK
Since apparently you can't just get #2 by itself anymore, and I've shown my #1 to about three different people in the past week, and they all asked where the next one is.
