Hey, it was my birfday the other day (it’s ok, I know you got me a card but got mixed up over the dates, it’s easy done). The only good thing about my age is I enjoy how taken aback people are when I tell them.
Wait, no, the only good thing about my age is I get a birthday haul. And here it is, you might like some of these things too.
(This bulging bag of birthday bonzas may look small, but I would note my wife took me off to the fabulous city of Derry for the night. I like Derry, I enjoy the accent and I love that they like books)
Extremity by Daniel Warren Johnson (colours by Mike Spicer) I’m hoping it’s a terrible read (though I’ve heard it isn’t) because that man is far too talented an artist to also be a good writer.
Abe Sapien book 1 – one of those massive Dark Horse tomes, I have a run of the BPRD: Plague of Frogs and this is a fine companion.
The Goddamned – I’m not sure what to make of this, rm Guerra on fine form, written by Jason Aaron, it feels very influenced by the movie Noah (or Noah was influenced by this).
There were sundry other bits (I got me a cool little R2D2, not a sphereo robot one, but a nice heavy metal one) as well as some other bits and bobs.
And that doesn’t even include my xmas haul (“Alexa, play my “oh-crap-I-have-a-deadline” playlist)
Happy another year getting older, comic book chums
