The box has over 50 comics that I had ordered in August 2013 . MyComicShop had already refunded me for the comics last year, so now it's like I have cash and comics.
Isn't this the best day ever?

I also hope to eat chocolate tonight...but I'm supposed to be eating healthier so that I can slim down for the wedding.
I just found out that my university is now offering a Ph.D in comics and the English dept.chair is a huge comic book nerd.
And I'm here in Ed learning brain functioning
Daredevil by Mark Waid Vol. 1 Deluxe Hardcover - This was the third hardcover that I found for insanely cheap recently. Since I have only heard great things about this series, I couldn't resist the opportunity to pick up a sealed copy for less than half the cover price.
I'll say this, I didn't hate Bendis' run on Daredevil but I quickly found that it simply wasn't for me and since that run, I haven't really attempted to follow what was going on in Matt Murdock's corner of the Marvel Universe but by the end of the first issue of Mark Waid's run, I was completely sucked back in. Like I said I didn't hate Bendis' work on Daredevil, I just hated the fact that it was so damn depressing that it felt like a chore to read it. Hell, Matt Murdock himself even acknowledges how dark and depressing not only he has been but the world around him. You only have to read a few pages of this collection to understand that Waid's approach is the complete opposite of Bendis'. In fact, you will probably only have to read a few pages before you are completely hooked and won't be able to put this book down at all. The combination of upbeat characters and stories, plus the unexpected usage of non traditional Daredevil characters, makes this collection a completely fun and shocking adventure.
Artistically speaking, Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin are absolutely firing on all cylinders in his collection. The quirky, almost classic style perfectly compliments the more lighthearted approach that Waid has brought to the book. My only complaint was the absolutely jarring addition of Emma Rios's work on the included issue of Amazing Spider-Man #677. Outside of that, this was just a gorgeous book from cover to cover.

My fiancée ordered the Uncanny X-Force Omnibus and the second volume of the Fear Agent Library Edition for me for Valentine's Day this year. Last week, we received an e-mail notifying us that the release date for the UXF Omnibus had been pushed back to March 25th, 2014. I was annoyed but I understand that this type of stuff can happen. So, I was into my LCS this week to pick up my comics for the week and what do I happen to see sitting on the "New This Week" shelf? Why the Uncanny X-Force Omnibus of course! However, when we logged on to our Amazon account later that day, it still claimed that the release date was March 25th and that we would receive the book on March 28th.
Fuck you Amazon. Fuck. You.

Midtown says that it was released on March 5th and it does look like it's available through DCBS as well.
