Most of you know how obsessed with Michael Turner I am. And his passing really did upset me, which I know most would find a little odd since I didn’t actually know him as a person (although I heard he was so lovely!). Since his passing I kind of stopped collecting comic book series and just focused on variant covers and graphic novels. Last week @aspencomics released Lola XOXO and I cannot tell you how in love with it I am. The artwork is really incredible, the protagonist kicks arse and the story is tops! I can’t wait for issue 2!
AND I re-bought the entire Fathom original series as individual comics. Midtown Comics was having a 40% off back issues sale and I couldn’t resist! Michael Turner’s work on Tomb Raider is the reason I collect comics today and have since I was about 15. All of the Fathom comics I own have been read and re-read I don’t know how many times so it’s nice to have a complete set that is still bagged and boarded. And you know the best part? Issues 0 -14 only cost about $34 which is SUCH a steal!
I bought quite a few comics at Midtown Comics yesterday. These two 3D comics are incredible (you really would have to see them in person to really SEE the effect!)! They had so many but I really loved these the most. And they were only $3.99 which is INSANE! I’ve always complained about the price of comics in Australia and it made me pretty giddy to just pay cover price for some comics yesterday.
