Me and Patrick celebrated our sixth year anniversary today! We went to the zoo and ate out at a nice restaurant, and of course stopped by the local Barnes & Noble and picked up some manga. I got Veronica Mars Season One on DVD too!
And in comic shops tomorrow...
Megan Kelso's The Squirrel Mother Stories looks like a good read. It's a collection of her short stories on real-life dilemmas and situations. I really like Kelso's cartooning and hey, cute squirrels must be involved at some point.
Umbra #1 (of 3) - The new Image mini-series follows a police forensics technician in Iceland with some problems (anxiety, drinking...) and "her discovery of a very strange skeleton sets in motion a series of violent and tragic events. And then things get weird." I'll be there.
The new issue of Shojo Beat is in bookstores already, featuring a new manga: Vampire Knight. It's the anniversary issue, so it promises lots of goodies! Another milestone this week: Fables reaches its fiftieth issue!
And of course, the new James Kochalka Superf*ckers has arrived. It's been too long since the last issue and if the cover's any indicator, this one will rock as well. This is simply one of the funnest comics coming out right now.
