I live!

Quickly, quickly, because I'm meant to be working and not listening to the new Manics album or blathering on about comics...

I haven't bought a new comic for more than a month.
It's clear that when I return to the fold I'll have a ridiculous amount of catching up to do, or maybe I just won't bother and start all over again.
It's odd, I'm barely missing the superhero muck, but when I hear there's a new Charles Burns or that Prison Pit Volume Two is out, well, I get a bit twitchy.
"All good things..." as they say.
Tell you what though, imaginary web chums, when I eventually get a job and some cash there's going to be a fuck of a big comics blow out at LLC Towers!
Oh yes, the postman is going to have his back broken by the number of Creepy and Eerie Archives he'll be carrying up my garden path.

As for single issues, I actually read a few of the freebies on Comixology the other day and I was OK with it. Think I might end up reading them digitally, or make the switch to trades.

Right, that's it. Barely worth saying, I know, but it's good to give the sleeping blog a prod every now and then just to remind you it's not dead.

Have just now put down the new Burns. Great start, but to be honest holding off might spare you some of the frustration of now having to wait for the next chapter.

Prison Pit is more of the same, which is to say a little slice of obscene lunatic joy.

Did you read Dungeon Quest, by Joe Daly? I have a feeling you did, but if not, I think it'll be right up your street.

Yup, I read and loved Dungeon Quest - purchased from Gosh, on Gosh blog recommendation.

Got that and Multiforce by Brinkman (also a Gosh blog reccomendation, also brilliant) on the same day.

I will return for more goodies and, despite my claims otherwise, more spandex-themed singles in the New Year.

You get the flat?

Oh, and it's not entirely true to say I haven't bought or read any comics. I picked a copy of Abandoned Cars up in Oxfam for a few quid the other week and I've been dipping into that. Top, top stuff (obv)
