So here's my swag from last Saturday:
Thanks to the nice little deal the store had for that day, buy one back issue, get one free, I paid half for what I got.
-Web of Spider-Man#32 , part 4 of the infamous "Kraven's Last Hunt" storyline.
-What If?#90. Really good but depressingly dark story about how much worse being bitten by that radioactive spider really could've been.
-Superboy's Legion part 2. Being meaning to get this one to finish the story for awhile now. Very cool and engaging story by the always dependably awesome Alan Davis.
-Before Watchman: Silk Spectre#'s 3-4; BW:Ozymandias#'s 3-4; BW:Nite Owl3's 3-4
Now I'll readily cop to shitting on the premise at the time. I still think it was a big fuck you to Alan Moore, but found the actual stories to be really good. Or at least they are to me, especially Darwyn Cooke's work. Was it worth the big check he probably cashed for his part in the project? Yep. Every fucking penny.
You really don't need to read these stories to get the original work they're based off, but on their own merits, not bad. And it kinda gives some backstory on the individual characters, which again, you don't necessarily need, but it's nice just the same.
-The Batman Begins movie version of The Scarecrow for only 5$. He just looks cool, what can I say?
In the end I only paid 16$ for everything. Not bad at all:)
Ok, now the real reason you even come here, the skits.....
Here's a dose of some P and J for ya:
Plus how fucking sweet is that Burgess Meredith Penguin? He's my default Penguin now.
