I’m assuming you’re all reading your copies as I compose this blog entry. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
I swung by my local comic shop today to pick up a few titles (Lobster Johnson #1, Punisher MAX #21, The Shade #4, and sundry others) and spotted my book on the rack. There was one copy left of the five the shop ordered and it was only 1:00 p.m. My sister reports the first issue has sold it in most of the places her friends checked in Montreal. Extrapolating from these statistical samples, we can conservatively estimate selling out every single issue produced by week’s end. So go get ’em while they’re still available!
My cold symptoms have evolved Not gotten better; gotten different. Whereas, a couple of days ago, I was suffering from stuffy sinuses and sore, dry throat, today I am dealing with chest congestion and a blissful buzz not unlike what one would experience following a third successive kamikaze shot. I wonder what tomorrow will bring? Hot flashes and itchy toes?
Lesson of the day: Always check the best before date on any half-finished jar of butter pecan butter you may find in the back of the refrigerator before consuming its contents, especially if you’re suffering from a cold that has compromised your sense of taste.
