Easier on the student budget. I only buy marvel singles because they take forever to come out in trade.

Hey guys, important question.

Does anyone know how much Arthur Suydam charges for sketches and/or drawings in comic cons?

I don't think that they tie in to the story (yet) but there are a few that are really fun, like Paul Renaud's and Francesco Francavilla's.

I talked with Arthur Suydam yesterday and today:

And I also gave him an issue of The Gathering. He insisted on having it signed, so I signed it for him. What a great guy, I had so much fun talking to him.

Justice League v1 Origins - liked this a lot. Darkseid being the origin is cool. Also, the first mission felt like All-star Barman in the team dynamic, which is a plus.

I liked the first arc, a lot. The second story about the woman with the vocal trigger was very messy all around.

Finally finished Absolute Sandman V 2.

Next up, Barman: Gothic, Absolute Sandman V3 and Complete Calvin And Hobbes book 1.

Sandman is brilliant.

Are you buying Sandman Overture?

No, not really... but they go fast and some of them are fun.

I just read Leaving Megalopolis a couple days ago (Gail Simone and Jim Calafiore kickstarter book)... it was alright.

Honestly, I feel like they had too much idea/story for a single graphic novel.
Like it should've been a 20-40 issue series instead.
I don't regret backing it, though and it definitely reminded me how much I miss Secret Six.
