I went to the comic book store(!)…. 2 times this month!
THE FIRST TRIP
- ODY-C, Vol 1. (ODY-C #1-5) by Matt Fraction and Christian Wood
- Starve #1 (Lock #1) by Brian Wood, Danijel Zizelj, and Davis Stewart
- Wytches #1 (Wytches #1) Scott Snyder and JOCK
I’d been wanting to read ODY-C for the longest time, and went to grab it as soon as it came out. It so freaking awesome!
Those of you following me on Twitter (which I haven’t a clue why you wouldn’t be… @LifeBooksEscape 😉 ) would know how much I LOVE Master Chef and Master Chef Junior and Baking Championships. I heard about this comic, Starve, last year; that it was this take on cooking championships where the chefs treated like the celebrities. Sounded like something right in my kitchen, and I was right!
Wtyches… has anyone read this comic yet? That first issue blew me away! I went back last week (my second trip) the day after the trade paperback came out and my comic book store was already sold out! 😦 But the guy nice to call and order one for me.
THE SECOND TRIP
- Squarriors #2 (Squarriors #2) Ash Mackzo and Ashley Witter
- Mythic #1 (Mythic #1) by Phil Hester and John McCrea
Well, I didn’t actually buy Squarriors #2 in a store. I was a Kickstarter backer for this, and have a physical copy of issue #1, but only have #2 on digital format. Issue #3 is coming out soon, I pre-ordered it and grabbed this one at the same time.
Then Mythic.. I went to get this one, and the Wytches and Reyn trade paperback, but they were sold out of the latter two. I didn’t really know much about Mythic, but before I went, I was checkin out the Image new releases online and saw it there. It was $1.99 in store, so figured I’d pick it up. Haven’t read it yet though.
- Murder at the Kinnen Hotel (Powder Mage #0.3) by Brian McClellan
I decided I wanted to get back into and complete the Powder Mage trilogy, and this was one of the novellas I didn’t own yet. I bought the other two novellas, Forsworn and Servant of the Crown, when they first came out in hardcover, so my inner collector had to buy this one in physical too. Plus, he signed it. Which I always love.
- Later by Zachary Bonelli
I won this in a giveaway from SF Signal (thanks!). This isn’t in the picture up top because it it came it about 10 minutes ago and I already took that photo and didn’t want to retake another one. And it would have make an odd number and mess up the balance.
Have you picked up any new books recently? What about comic maybe? Read or heard anything about what I got in my haul?
Let me know what’s good!
