I Crush Pelvis!

Goddess of War #1

 

I have something to expel: I hate “hip.” I hate any communal approval on something as good, or bad, attractive or unattractive, because these qualities matter most to the individual experiencing them and cannot be transposed into a decision made by more than one person. If this decision is made, the member of the community that has decreed something hip admits that they really are the same as their brethren, and while I can list qualities uniting men together, there is an infinite list separating them: to admit hipness is to admit sameness to a group, and to admit sameness to a group is to give up individual will and to conform to communal will, to not fully understand what makes something hip but to act in the interest of a big brother.

I have found some comics!

And here are some:

Batman/Hellboy/Starman #1-2

 

Wow. Normally I am not one to brag, but when at the comic shop yesterday I found these two comics for a quarter over cover, $2.75, each. Mignola is way too good an artist to have such expensive work, right? Don’t prices only go up, like, three decades after publication!?! Top Ten and all of ABC are still at cover, and I can still easily find even Morrison’s Doom Patrol and Animal Man at prices just over retail for each trade, but Hellboy!?! Those comics are ridiculously expensive, even the newer mini-series. I’m never going to get a reasonably priced set of Seed of Destruction, or the Dark Horse Presents Hellboy comics, am I?

You HAVE to go out and buy this comic! #1

July 8, 2008 at 11:59 am (Comic Books)

So, the plan for this involves comics no one remembers and that likely won’t ever be reprinted, me convincing you to scour stores and sunder the earth to get them, and an unwavering schedule, always published on Tuesday so’s you know what to look for when picking up your weekly comics! (Not to be vain, but I’m most concerned about that last part). Here we go!

it’s lonely in the purgatorium

July 1, 2008 at 11:59 am (Comic Books)

Sorry things have been quiet around here. Summer’s given me a lot of time for my not-blogging projects and I’ve become ensconced in them, the most relevant being the reorganization and cleansing of my comic books.
