So, I got my copy of the Avatar "Lost Adventures" trade paperback in the mail today. Haven't had time yet for a thorough read-through, but I did flip through the table of contents and one caught my eye:

"Combustion Man on a Train".




I lol'ed.

So, no one around the house was planning on doing anything remotely interesting today. While the rest of them stayed home I went up to Rockford. Hit Tomorrow is Yesterday since I hadn't had a comic fix in almost two months.

(is it mean of me to say that, compared to Barnes & Noble, TiY's selection of manga sucks?)

Anyway, came away with a relatively small haul; five comics and two graphic novels - CSI's Dying in the Gutters and the "Betrayal" arc of Lions, Tigers and Bears. I'm currently 22 pages into Dying in the Gutters, and snickering already. Why does it not surprise me that Gil Grissom's favorite comic book character is Ant-Man?

Afterwards I swung by Barnes & Noble and picked up season 4 of CSI: NY. I think NY is currently replacing Miami as my favorite CSI series. And Sid Hammerback is definitely my favorite character; adding Robert Joy to the cast of NY was a master stroke of genius.

Now I'm home again, and we're back to boring. And cold (it was warmer in my car than it was in the house when I left).

Well, made my quarter-yearly* trek up to Tomorrow is Yesterday earlier today. Runaways #30 has been acquired, as has #1 of the Runaways/YA Secret Invasion tie-in. Also snagged some back issues of Robotech: Invasion and (finally!) the fifth issue in the Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles series.

New Runaways canon means more plotting for Milliways, but that will have to wait until...probably Friday, depending on if the brother and I are busy entertaining another munchkin.




*which might have to change to more frequent trips if Runaways gets back on a regular, once-a-month release schedule. If not, I may just have to rely on the kindness of strangers torrents and [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily to get my Runaways fix.

Well, so far so good... a check of Marvel's site still lists the release date for Runaways 30 as June 25. Keep your fingers crossed, people.

And the library is a creepy place when you have to close up by yourself.

I get the weirdest mental images at work sometimes.

Like the one I had yesterday of Bruce Wayne having a powerlunch with Tony Stark.

Does anyone else think that Bruce would bitchslap Tony for the whole superhero registration/Civil War thing?

Drove up to TiY today; Runaways #29 has been acquired, along with random other goodies. After having to wait four months for it the issue was...kind of a let-down. For all of the hype it was getting nothing really...happened.

Hopefully issue #30 will be the payoff, as well as be on-time. I don't want to wait another four months before I finally decide whether or not to app a certain character to Milliways (though the newest previews of the Ramos art has me hopeful).

And props to whoever was running the store's entertainment system today. I walked in on the last fifteen or-so minutes of The Last Unicorn, which was followed by Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal. Good times, good times.

Planning on heading up to TiY tomorrow (if I don't get called in to sub) to pick up Runaways #29, and any other goodies that catch my eye. Had to win an argument with Mom to do it; she was all worried about me driving the nasty pot-holed streets of Rockford, I pointed out that I couldn't be a strictly fair weather driver forever, and that I'd rather do it when I know they're going to be around in the event that something happens.

Besides, I've waited four months (along with the rest of the fandom) for this issue to come out. I'm not going to wait another two for the snow to melt/potholes to be filled and knowing Rockford the latter will never happen.

...but that's all if I don't get called in to sub tomorrow. If I do, then I just pray that Runaways 29 gets uploaded PDQ.

You know your new co-worker/boss is going to rock when you walk by his office and you see a poster for The New Avengers on the wall.
