I'm a comic book nerd. I've been reading them since I was 9 or 10 years old. It's a life-long passion of mine. None of that is news. None of that I haven't mentioned in the past.
I used to make weekly visits to my local comic book store. That changed a long time ago. Probably more than ten years ago by now. My favorite shop went out of business. There were a few others in town to choose from, but none of them really did it for me. So I switched the way I bought comics. I started ordering online and had the books delivered to me twice a month. That adjustment was rather difficult at first. I knew I'd sometimes have to wait two or three weeks for something I knew was sitting on a rack across town. Over time, I grew to care less about that. I look forward to my bi-weekly shipments of crack.
My first shipment of the year got here late. The storms all across the country screw up the delivery of comics. I usually get a delivery every other Friday, with a few skip weeks thrown in throughout the course of the year. Twenty-four shipments over fifty-two weeks will do that.
I'm going to try an post a running blog of what I'm reading as each shipment arrives. Here are photos of the contents of that first shipment of 2014.
Photo number one are the single issues I got this time around.
Earth 2 #19
Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S. #3
Forever Evil: Arkham War #4
Justice League Dark #26
Photo number two are the trade paperbacks.
Batman: The Dark Knight
Batman: The TV Stories
Green Lantern: Sector 2814
John Constantine: Hellblazer
And finally, the everthing else portion of my shipment. I'm obsessed with the Funko Pop Vinyl toys. This is the latest addition to my collection. Superboy.
