Thinking about getting the Thunder Agents: The Best of Wally Wood HC as I've always meant to get into that book and since Wood is the definitive voice it makes sense. But it isn't a complete story, is it?

Yeah...it's just that those classic trades are so damned expensive! Oh well, I can wait for something more comprehensive.

Just wanted to mention how amazing DCBS's customer service is. Emailed last night about seeing Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection Great Power in my "Next Shipment" queue when I meant to order the Epic Collection of his "Cosmic Adventures." I owned up to it being entirely my fault and incredibly late in the game, hoping they would at least remove the first trade to relieve me of the cost, but not 15 hours later, they removed the former and added the latter to my account.

Good shit, man.

This has got to be the best shipment I've had coming in a long while:

GIANT SIZE KUNG FU BIBLE STORIES

NAILBITER TP VOL 1 THERE WILL BE BLOOD

KILLOGY HALLOWEEN SPECIAL ONESHOT

FATALE TP VOL 5 CURSE THE DEMON

SHADOW TP VOL 4 BITTER FRUIT

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN EPIC COLLECTION TP COSMIC ADVENTURES

BATMAN 66 TP VOL 1

MAGNETO TP VOL 1 INFAMOUS

SATELLITE SAM TP VOL 2 SATELLITE SAM & KINESCOPE SNUFF (though I swear I didn't order this because I didn't like the first volume. Or maybe I did, read the first, didn't like it, then was too late to cancel. The only downfall of DCBS)

DAREDEVIL TP VOL 00 DEVIL AT BAY

RAVINE TP VOL 2

I know, right?! Thanks to DC's Convergence, for the first time in five (or more) years, I actually owe DCBS money.

Sweet Christmas! I was going through the latest order form and got almost to the bottom of the comics and was like "Jeez, guess I'm not ordering anything this month" until the Euro reprints section popped up: Nikopol Trilogy vol 1, Tipping Point HC, Crepax Dracula/Frankenstein/Horror HC, Sensuous Frazetta HC and then I see that I missed the Epic Collection finishing Erik Larsen's run on ASM (never before collected and doubtful they'll do an omnibus)...damn. Going to have to cut half of these to stay within budget. 

Edit: brought it down to Nikopol, Crepax, and Amazing Spider-Man.

That moment you're about to pre-order Wonder Woman Earth One, but then you realize that Grant Morrison hasn't done anything you like in like 6 years.

Since my order is open to edit until the 20th, I'm giving myself a week to decide if I want to carry on reading Morning Glories and Astro City. Right now, I'm leaning no on both.

Ok, I guess I stopped reading Saga at volume 4 and never noticed. Not missing it. Later, Saga.

In related news, I have the first four volumes of Saga for sale. :)

Also, Marvel solicits the second volume of the Master of Kung Fu omnibus (of four) before the first even ships? That means I'm not buying any more than the first.

There are, literally, two books I'm ordering this month. To make it worth the shipping price, I need to add a few. If anyone has suggestions, throw them at me.

Nailbiter and Birthright from Image are killing it.

Deadly Class is great too.

Have you tried Cry Havoc at all? Also, this month's WicDiv is a good jumping on point. Black Panther starts this week, too. Uhm. Are you looking for monthlies or trades? That will help.

For the first time since November 2005, it looks like I will not be placing an order through DCBS. There are only two comics I want physical copies of in October -- Mister Miracle #3 and Jughead: The Hunger #1 -- and the discount does not offset the shipping.
