Greetings dudes and chix0rz,
I have recently returned from my trip to visit family in the squaresville that is known as Peterborough. The population consisted mainly of chavs and mundanes, with a few small town emos thrown in for good measure.
I found myself being stared at wherever I ventured, as if they knew I was an outsider. However I'm used to this, mainly because I occasionally dress like a cross between an 80's metal head and the second coming of Rude Dog and the Dweebs.
While in this city I managed to find a quirky little comic shop named The Great Nothing which, interestingly, doubles as a piercing studio. Here's what I picked up:
New Avengers #4 - I like the Bendis and Immonen team and this is probably going to be the only Avengers title I buy from now on because I need to cut down on the amount I'm buying.
Scarlet #1 and #2 - I thought it looked nice and it was recommended Valhallahan as a good read.
X-Force: Sex and Violence #3 - Last part of a great little mini series and I can't wait to see how it ends. The last of the good X-Force line up too, in my opinion.
X-Men #3 - Still surprised that I'm enjoying this as much as I am.
Secret Avengers #4 - I got this to finish the story arc but this probably be kicked to the curb in my cutting back of comic purchases. It's been good though.
After I got back home I realised there were other bits I needed to get, so it was off to Chaos City to find the remainder of titles I wanted from this week and last.
Taskmaster #1 - A fun looking mini series that was recommended by Valhallahan and may be the subject of a swap shop massacre very soon.
1 Month 2 Live #1 - Sounded like the sort of thing I'd like. A good concept that makes you think.
Shadowland: Blood on the Streets #2 - More ninja-noir action from the Shadowland event.
Conan #23 - I never miss a Conan and I don't see any reason to start now.
I also bought Legacies #4 and Prince of Power #4 because I was broke the week they came out and couldn't get my whole stack.
Also I found a Calvin and Hobbes collection in a charity shop for 50p
Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons - You've gotta love Calvin and Hobbes.
