Hey guys…so tired. Wondercon was popping. We moved a lot of books, met a lot of new people, and will hopefully have a lot of new faces in the store soon! It was nice to see familiar faces stop by and say hello. Cons are fun, but they’re also exhausting. So exhausting in fact, that I still haven’t seen BvS and probably won’t until next weekend and while I’ve already been spoiled into oblivion, I do ask that you please be mindful of other customers around you that haven’t had a chance to check it out yet.
It’s a pretty light week, but there are some Image standouts for graphic novels including Paper Girls, East of West and Walking Dead. Eric wrote another review, this time for the graphic novel A God Somewhere, which despite the fact that John Arcudi is one my favorite writers, I still haven’t gotten around to reading yet! You can read his review here. See you at the bottom…
