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.

Read Superior Spider-man vol. 1 from the library. Jesus, why do people buy this? Dan Slott is a terrible writer and the artist is straight out of the 90s. It actually feels like a 90s comic altogether, really.

Slott used to be good when he was writing She-Hulk.
I haven't read Spider-Man since the OMD disaster...

Hawkeye Vol. 1 Hardcover - Despite the fact that I already own the first volume of this series, "My Life as a Weapon" in paperback, it's such a great series that I wanted to have the hardcover as well. My original complaints about the first volume still stand, I really don't understand why they felt the need to tack Young Avengers Presents #6 on to the end of the collection since it came out in 2008 and really isn't essential to the rest of the book. Aside from that, it's a great hardcover that collects the first 2 volumes of the series which is great for me because Hawkeye #7 may be my favorite single issue of any comic book series last year.

I want to read it. I've heard so many good things about it.

Now that the hardcover is out, I would seriously recommend picking it up if you can find it.

I'm sure I could find it, but what I need to find first is some cash...

I haven't been able to find a job in 5 months, so I'm running out of money pretty fast.

Read them both last week.
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

The Sixth Gun Deluxe Edition - A 368 page oversized (13.2 x 8.8 x 1.3) hardcover collecting the first 11 issues plus a 22 page story that has never been seen in print before. It also contains a 22 page cover gallery, 12 pages of early pitch artwork and 14 pages of production artwork. Well worth of every penny. Easily one of my favorite current series.

Yikes, that's rough. I remember you talking about this a while back. Hopefully something promising will open up for you soon.

Dammit, I was really trying to talk myself out of this one. The collection looks great but with Christmas just around the corner, I don't need to be dropping extra cash on myself. :?

Ooops, sounds like I'm getting a bit too reiterative.
