A: No, not three forms of dead media! It's my junk from this week, most of which arrived on the same day...really made the rest of the week's mail a letdown, tell you what.
GoHastings.com had a Presidents' Day sale that was pretty solid: Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden's Joe Golem and the Drowning City, Star Trek: First Contact, and The Batman: The Complete Fifth Season; all for under $12. I'm about halfway through Joe Golem and really enjoying it; and had forgotten the 2004-2008 The Batman series was pretty good, and the last year was mostly team-ups. It was also, of course, completely overshadowed by Batman: the Animated Series before it and Batman: Brave and the Bold after it; but it was still worth seeing. And it has possibly my favorite version of the Penguin ever...
Then, direct from China, a loose New 52 DC Unlimited Batman! Which I bought off eBay about a day and a half before finally seeing them in stores. I'm still debating that New 52 Superman, but would probably get that new Hawkman: I don't think that redesign came off great in the comics, but should look nice as a figure. Maybe. Have a good weekend!
