America du nuneul no this is the classic series from Tom King and which drugs are Award winner and an Eisner Award nominee again the great thing about this book and the next book that I'm going to show show you is that these were offered you can only get these at comic book shops which i think is great and I would encourage DC and Marvel and other publishers to to make more their collections and special items and all that available only a comic book shop so that you get people out and into shops and supporting their local comic book shop so this I thought this was a really great idea DC and much cooker congratulations on good idea very good idea anyway mr. miracle I started reading and I got so far in and I know counted we bought this in hardcover eventually anyway so I put it aside but it what I'd read and I'm a fan of mr. miracle since the curtain Kirby days I love what I've seen it was a great take the best thing since then Marshall Rogers take on on mr. miracle although Steve Roux did a pretty good annual that or special one time but but a Tom Tom seems to have the magic touch and you know it just had that feel to me of you know there's this is this is where the King listened to this age and you know that it's just something where it works really well in terms of this this just feels like something that if like I say if Kirby had a right as he would like this a great interpretation of his character I think know why soul winner you can't you can't deny that it has me somewhat good to even get that so I love the nine panel layouts very cool I actually teach about a teacher comic book course and I teach about freeform panels but I also do teach him quite a bit about the non panel grid it's one of the most efficient ways I think to tell a story watchman is done that way hmm fee Fredette oh I do believe was least the first two anyway well yeah so it's a great great comic and I can't wait as matter fact that's one of the comics a lot of times I'll take economic and I'll try to read it all in one weekend from my new comics election and that's gonna definitely be the one for that out of this spun chair and it weighs anyways we got here we got here cocky so we got here Batman white knight from Shawn Murphy and as I remember at the Tongass well it's quite popular a lot of people really seem to like it and it's so pretty well this is of course from the TC Black Label like the concept of a Black Label sort of a nice offshoot for first older folks out there with a strong stomach it but yeah always loved his artwork anyway but ya know there's some good freeform family myself I'm sort of a mixture I've use for the non pedal great a lot here in the air through my life without also being a big proponent of the free form it's matter of fact a lot of times we're not do storyboards for people and all that I would do that more in a free form rather than in the standard little TV screens honestly that's it that actually even quicker than I thought it would and books anyway that's it for this week once again big kudos to do you see there on the books or only editions of these books and you should do do more from because you know really the top bookstores out there where I help build the industry into what it is today and and it's I think it's important to cuz there's a lot of people even myself they they just like going to to bookshop ders there's nothing more fun in the world but I think anyways that being said um I guess I'm going to go and do a little bit of work and actually do some a bit of littering in a hand lettering to do I'm really pushing the hand lettering this this year by the way folks it's cool it's so much to a comic and it can it can make a difference I think some people think oh the lettering is not that important oh it is and I should know cuz I'm a liver anyway that being said what's hard today I know this wood here somewhere okay I already said go it's not terrible sometimes sometimes I actually funders you know hard to get any work done or summon a boom tube or have an integral acting bat battle here in my library without these people drive by like come on folks please anyway we'll see you same bat-time same bat-channel next week and keep on reading well I got this oh my god there's three just three here boom tubes which one do I choose I'll take the middle okay see folks

  1. Fantastic books this week. Usagi is the one book thats on my next order to make the Collection complete. I usually buy from IST but the shipping is costly and when the books arrive here in Sweden i have to pay and additional customsfee. So my buying is decreasing and i dont get books so often, so i get more picky of what i buy. Have a wonderful weekend Wallace.

  2. I'm so glad I held off on buying Mister Miracle in paperback. That hardcover looks great.Also super interesting how they've released it for shops. Also! I really enjoyed Nobody is in Control #1, lettering was fantastic 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the reads.

  3. its not a great idea by the way for publishers to only sell at direct market shops. My country has no proper comic shop. I get my stuff at amazon cause IST shipping is way to expensive from where I'm from.
