Stupid local comic shop with their stupid 20% off all trades sale...
So I'm getting all caught up on IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ongoing (or mostly caught up, anyway; I have no idea where the two trades of "micro-series" and The Secret History of The Foot Clan fit in; those guys really need to publish a reading order/checklist for their many, hydra-like franchise lines of comics and collections), reading the third and, I think, final collection of the excellent Roger Langridge-written new Popeye series (And hey, check out that cover—That's Dave Sim!) and I finally broke down and bought Jim Silke's Jungle Girls, which appears to be—stay with me now—a book full of illustrations of jungle girls, by Jim Silke (Plus a bunch of words and photographs, which I think are about the girls he draws and paints or whatever; I haven't gotten that far yet).
Anyway, there goes a significant portion of my Sunday and Monday, including the time I would have spent preparing a post for Every Day Is Like Wednesday tonight.
Don't blame me, blame my comic shop—20% off! I can't not buy a half-dozen trades at that price!
