Friday afternoon, hours after the appointed time, what I've been longing for finally landed in my hands: Chris Ware's Acme Novelty Date Book Vol. 2 and Lat's Town Boy (the one published by FirstSecond)! Many thanks to R, who carried those old-wishes of mine! The rest of the afternoon (that wasn't much) was spent with me drowning in those books. Reviews will definitely be written, as soon as I can allocate some blocks of my brain for them. In the mean time, I can say that I am content. ... Or am I?
Greediness taking over, I know I want more. I want 100 Bullets TPB #13. R showed me a Trondheim's Little Nothings: The Curse of the Umbrella that he purchased at the same time he got Ware's and Lat's books for me. I want that, too! I also want Three Shadows that will be published in April, 2008. Follow the links below in case you're wondering why these books distract me a lot.
Right, now back to work and please excuse my sudden outburst for comics. sigh... I guess I'm just missing the days of hanging aimlessly at Lambiek pretty much...
