I made a trip into the city this week, to have a late lunch with my brother at the Shake Shack and to hit the comics shop, so the haul this week is entirely comical:
- a whole pile of things for the boys, including four comics they get now and three digest-sized collections they'll get at various later dates
- Fox Bunny Funny, a wordless trade paperback from Andy Hartzell, whose work I'm sure I've seen before. I just read it, and I'll have to think about it, and maybe figure out what else Hartzell has done.
- Grendel Archives by Matt Wagner, a collection of the long-out-of-print early Grendel comics. I expect it to be more "interesting" than "good," but it's a nice little hardcover at a reasonable price, so I'll be happy with it either way.
- Fables, Vol. 9: Sons of Empire by Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, and others
- The Pulse, Vol. 1 by Bendis and others, because Midtown Comics had a whole shelf of them for half-price, and because I'm vaguely interested in what Bendis did with Jessica Jones after Alias ended.
- Apollo's Song by Osamu Tezuka, because I've read two volumes of Buddha and just finished Ode to Kirihito (which is...something I'll have to think about for a bit before I can be coherent on the subject), and because Vertical does such great packages for his books.
