Comic Books and other tales

On the way to getting some domestic things for the apartment (I traded in some CDs at Record Archive for store credit, which I used to buy a bathroom sink set, and a tin of bandaids), and some video things for the video shoot (hair dye, wrapping paper, and sparkler candles), I also got Irvine Welsh's latest novel If You Liked School, You'll Love Work and Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things in trade paperback, and Bizenghast book 4 (while I still don't have book 3). I also got the latest issue of Serena Valentino's Nightmares and Fairytales and a special surprise... a new trade comic from Ted Naifeh's Courtney Crumrin series!! It's called Courtney Crumrin and the Fire Theif's Tale and it is about her first adventure in eastern Europe with her Uncle. And speaking of really good comics, I almost forgot. I also got Aaron A.'s latest comic Kimmi66 which was great and also quite sad.

Next on my list is Nightmares #22, and Courtney Crumrin and the Prince of Nowhere. The cover looks beautiful!

Well fuck, I never got this message. WTF livejournal?
Yes! I have been meaning to call you, in fact, I'm going to call your right now.
I would love some more knives, since that's one of the things we're missing from the kitchen. Coffee mugs are also a plus :) Margarita glasses, too. Especially if they have margaritas in them ;)
Tampons? Sure. I haven't had my period in a while, even after going off the shot, but I'm certain I will someday. It'll be like my first all over again. You can be the mom who tells me to wear dark clothes and don't ever fuck.

I was a big fan of nightmares and fairy tales, mostly because of FSC's art, but once she was out of the picture I just couldnt enjoy it anymore so I stopped reading it. Courtney Crumrin looks amazing and I cant wait to get my hands on that one.

I like Crab Scrambly, but I didn't think he was right for N&F. Especially following FSc. The latest artist Camilla d'Errico is really amazing, though.
