Ok, so I looked.
What comics would I get if I had the cash?
AMAZE INK (SLAVE LABOR GRAPHICS)
- Dork #10, $2.95 (Evan Dorkin, always good)
- BTVS Willow & Tara Wilderness #2 (Of 2), $2.99 or
- BTVS Willow & Tara Wilderness Photo Cvr #2 (Of 2), $2.99 (because it's co-written by Amber Benson, and I am as constant as a northern star)
- Planetary JLA Terra Occulta, $5.95 (Warren Ellisy goodness)
- Filth #4 (Of 13), $2.95 (Grant Morrisony goodness)
MARVEL COMICS (fuck 'em)
- Black Panther #49, $2.50 (Priesty. . . no, that's getting old already. . .)
- New X-Men #132, $2.25 (again with the Morrison)
- Hopeless Savages Ground Zero #3 (Of 4), $2.95 (Jen Van Meter signed my guestbook, and is therefore clearly insane, but also a wonderful writer)
- Animerica Extra October 2002 Vol 5 #10, $4.95 (linked here for aesthetic reasons, and to be difficult)
One day, the truth comes crashing down on a little girl-her parents weren't away on a trip, they've died. The grade-school-age girl wanders the rain-soaked streets of her home town with no distinct purpose. Drenched in rain and tears, she finds herself by a river, and without knowing what she is doing, she throws herself in the roaring flood. Suddenly a man appears-her prince-and he rescues her, banishes her tears, and tells her to grow up into a strong, noble woman. And the girl's love of the prince determines her personality from that day forward-she strives, not to become a princess, but instead to grow up to be a prince just like him!
Yeah, yeah, more gender-roles-in-anime/manga stuff. Everyone needs a hobby, that's mine.
