Nah, purely out of the goodness of my heart. That way you can buy something else cheap and get 2 for 1. That storyline is pretty good and comes highly recommended. thumbsup2.gif

 

I'm going to be pitching a book that includes pieces on Spider-Man, X-Men, and Hulk, so I need to get to know those characters. And truth is, I've always wanted to read Dark Phoenix. Joe, I'm going to take you up on that incredibly generous offer. I thank you most sincerely. I'll let you know what I think about the story as soon as I read it. I'll probably have some questions, not knowing what came before.

...and in case I happen to win Lighthouse's Name-the-Wall-Books contest, I'll be happy to share a portion of my freebies to the libraries of Joanna AND Joe_Collector. Only thing, Joe, it'll be my choice devil.gif of primo DC material for you! cloud9.gif Hmmm... Grant Morrison JLA Moderns? Neal Adams Batman? Silver Age JLA/JSA pre-Crisis? 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

 

And, at the risk of taking food off the plate of our generous benefactor Mr. House, let me just remind people to check out their local public library. Librarians are these days trying hard to motivate kids to read books of any kind (they worry about the same things our comics crash theorists here do-- all the distractions kids today face from reading anything ) A librarian was in my LCS last week making arrangments to buy comics TPBs to go on the stacks!

I've written pretty detailed reviews of Uncanny X-Men #104-109 (I've posted a couple on the boards in the past). If you're interested in reading them (as research or just for fun) let me know and I'll e-mail them to you.

I am excited to announce that with JC's help, I was able to get 3 books! The Dark Phoenix Saga, the Essential Spider-Man, and the Hulk Monster book. This should help acquaint me with these 3 key characters. And I can finally tell John what I thought of Dark Phoenix! Bonus! (He once sent me a Fantastic Four tpb just so that I would know who he was talking about. Trial of Galactus. Good story. I'd never heard of Galactus and it drove him nuts).

 

At this point, I don't think I'll need any others, because I'm just writing the pitch. When I have to write the actual book, I'll come running to you guys for suggestions, I'm sure. But that's a long way off. It takes forever for a book to go from the pitch stage to the actual writing.

 

I want to thank everyone who made suggestions, and special thanks to 'House and Vince, who made it possible.

I ordered that Sojourn trade for you on the 16th... and I guess it just missed the truck out of Memphis, because it's not on this week's invoice. So I should get it on the 4th...

 

I was surprised to see Global Frequency #11 is finally on my invoice... That book was solicited back in June... confused-smiley-013.gif
