    i've read:
    multiple warheads - i love pretty much anything from the demented mind of brandon graham
    safe area gorazde - i bought the new printing but haven't had a chance to read it yet
    100 bullets - i read the first trade and didn't like it, it was years ago when i did. might have to give it another chance
    finder - an interesting tale, it seems like it would be better on subsequent readings
    sex criminals - the initial solicit seemed silly to me but i picked up the first trade and LOVED it. chip zdarsky's style is a lot of fun.
    saga - one of my favorite current ongoings, if not my favorite
    mister x - from what i've read in dark horse presents, just not really my thing.
    the incal - loved this book, couldn't put it down.
    uncle scrooge - what i'm currently reading, haven't been disappointed by anything by carl barks
    maus - everyone should read this book


    on my want to read list:
    usagi yojimbo
    stray bullets
    preacher
    black hole
    cerebus
    tintin
    invisibles
    from hell
    formerly 'weeks'

    First order from IST. Very impressed with their near bomb proof packaging.

    Pretty uninspired list from Rolling Stone. All the usual suspects that have been harped on for years by every mainstream press, nothing inspired.

    This S. Clay Wilson book coming from Fantagraphics looks really good. Never heard of him before, but from the looks of things he's gonna be a new favorite. Anyone else ordering this?

    Speaking of OHC, I got this today and was surprised at the quality for being a Kickstarter. OHC, with nice paper and binding.

    I thought that was a Hickman book for a few seconds there, very similiar to cover designs ona couple of his books.

    I really like Incognito, I haven't read a Brubaker book I didn't like.

    That had to be intentional. They're probably hoping some people will confuse it for a Hickman book and give it a try.

    Ended up ordering Hellboy Library Edition 1 & 2 through IST. It's my first experience with the site so I'm looking forward to it. I also ordered B.P.R.D. Plague of Frogs HC 02 from Amazon like I planned to, but I bought it used off a seller for $24. The wait time through Amazon itself was listed as 1-3 months, which I don't consider a good sign when volume 2 isn't easy to find anywhere at the moment. If it shows up in the good condition I'll consider it a great purchase.
