Title: Comic Book Day - June 13
Post by: Perry on June 11, 2012, 12:56:27 PM
Yeah, two days early, but I am dying with boredom. Can't put shoes on and can hardly walk today so I am stuck in front of this damn monitor ... or my TV ... and just going bat-shit crazy. This will help ... all of about 10 seconds anyway.

Cool. Mine shows up earlier on Friday as it comes in the AM now instead of 5 at night, but does that mean they are hitting you by Friday now? That is sweet if that is the case, or did it just go from Tuesday to Monday (I can't remember when you were getting it)
Or hell ... THURSDAY !!!!
 :) :)

If I remember right I got it on Friday last time.  My normal delivery was Monday so getting them before the weekend is awesome!

Yeah. Hit the tracking and saw that. Looking for a better deal I suppose.

That should still get to you by Friday, I assume, and I am hoping mine will get here Thursday now, as the wife says we are in that loop for Priority Mail. But hey, I don't care if it is carrier pigeon as long as it gets here safe ... preferably by Friday.
 ;D

FYI - I also picked up Aquaman #9 at the LCS.  Figured I'd give a Black Manta story a try.

uh-oh. Pressure on again.

 ;D

Hell, if we are going this far, next time you are there, flip through ... do not buy, but flip through an issue of Prophet and an issue of Danger Club.

Prophet is mind twisting and I'm pretty sure not a book you would like (NOT just because it is mind twisting, but just doesn't seem to be your style of enjoyment ... if ya know what I mean), but you should gaze your eyes on the crazy ass art at least.

Danger Club I think is a book right up your alley however. Flip through, see what you think and then see if he has issue 1. It's not perfection in storytelling, hell, it's kinda chunky in places, but the art is clean and robust and I really like the plot.
In fact ...

HERE (http://www.brokenfrontier.com/reviews/p/detail/image-month-danger-club-1) is a brief review/plot synopsis of issue 1

and

HERE (http://geek-news.mtv.com/2012/04/05/danger-club-1-review/) is a slight spoilerish review from Mtv with a few pics of issue 1

Scarlet Spider #6

I was reading this and one of the characters mentions Kaine should have a banana milkshake. That got me licking my lips. I just got home from Baskin Robbins.

I hear ya  ;D

I like saving 40% or more on my comics though. Worth waiting to me  ;)

I still hit the LCS on occasion. Worth going even when not buying.
