Hooper was apparently a very good boy this past holiday season, and received a mess of Amazon gift cards opposed to my usual selection of carbon-based fossil fuels. Yea for generous family members who still can’t quite make sense of me yet!
So, this allowed me to actualize one of my simple dreams – binging at Amazon. After weeks of comparison shopping, weighing relative availability, and driving the Missus crazy, I ended up ordering:
- Amazing Screw-On Head by Mike Mignola and crew
- Beasts of Burden by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson
- NextWave: Agents of H.A.T.E. Ultimate Collection by Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen
- Rocketeer: Complete Adventures by Dave Stevens
- Rough Justice: The DC Comics Sketches of Alex Ross by Alex Ross and Chip Kidd (I’m a sucker for anything done by Chip Kidd)
Each title is something I’ve been wanting to try and I know enough about the creators to minimize the risk of getting some unpolished turd. But obviously didn’t know enough at the time of release to snatch them up when they came out.
So, dear readers – which should I start with?
