I call bullshit, a lousy book's still a lousy book. Everyone and his brother is trying to cash in on the resurgence of interest in crime/noir comics, there's plenty of weeds to pull.

I did however just watch The Runaways on Monday (not bad, not bad) and wouldn't mind reading about the adventures of Joan Jett after Cherie Currie left the band.

that would suck. we don't order books from that company unless they are for subscribers.

what cool comic shop?
books do furnish a room can't be bothered to order Marvel or DC books, much less bluewater books and Chapel Hill comics - shit they probably will have it. Oh well, one more thing for andy to dust.

DARK RAIN: A NEW ORLEANS STORY

Written by MAT JOHNSON • Art by SIMON GANE • Cover by NESSIM HIGSON

"DARK RAIN has the twists of The Treasure Of the Sierra Madre, the political punch of When The Levees Broke and the character interplay of The Defiant Ones." – Reginald Hudlin, writer of Black Panther, director of Boomerang

From Mat Johnson, writer of the acclaimed INCOGNEGRO, comes a graphic novel thriller set in the days after Hurricane Katrina. Two small-time ex-cons with big dreams get the idea that this would be the perfect time to rob a bank. Catch is, the bank is in New Orleans, and they're on parole in Houston. Now, as every sane person tries to get out of The Big Easy, Emmit and Dabny will do whatever it takes to get in.

As they journey through a tide of human suffering, Dabny wants to help, and Emmit sees only the money. But a rogue commander of the ruthless security force "Dark Rain" has his sights set on taking down the same bank. If Emmit and Dabny don't outrace him, their last hope for a second chance could be washed away in the floodwaters – along with their lives.

If half your clientele wanted to know what was happening in Magog that would be at least double its current sales!

I was talking about X-Men, I mean you mentioned DAnielle Steele for god's sake. MAgog is more like a trashy harlequinn book.

If you're going to kill someone, you should be more decisive about it. "may" isn't going to cut it.
