Tell us about your latest buy here. You can even post pictures if you want to :)


message 2: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (kelstretch) I just got this one:

Arago, Volume 1 by Takahiro Arai

Hoping its good, as its a shorter one and I can use it to break up my 50 volume long series into more manageable parts, as I tend to get bored.

I went to outer limits yesterday (a comics store here in South Africa) and got:

Angel After the Fall Premiere Edition by Brian Lynch

I didn't have much time, but I plan on going back soon and grabbing some more :)

Jamie (juvia_winter) I just bought Bleach, Volume 1: Strawberry and the Soul Reapers and One Piece, Volume 01: Romance Dawn. I have heard good things about them. If I like them I am going to try and finish the whole series.

Lexie (poisonedrationality) technically it was Until Death Do Us Part 3...but it hasn't arrived yet so I guess Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8, Volume 4 (since that has arrived).

Ah Season 5--great season! Season 6-7 were both GOOD seasons, but I think seasons 3 & 5 were the best.

I agree, so far season 3 was awesome. Can't wait to get into season 5 properly :D


message 11: by Lexie (new)

Lexie (poisonedrationality) When you're done (with the series), there's a couple of re-watch archives that have some really great behind the scenes info and trivia and discussion type stuff I can link you. One doesn't spoil for forthcoming episodes, but the other two do tho and one even makes mention of how things relate to things in the comics.

Lexie (poisonedrationality) Worlds' Finest, Vol. 1: The Lost Daughters of Earth 2 - this was an impulse buy when I went looking for a different book at the comic shoppe. Enjoying it!

Impulse buys are fun :)

Patrick Williams (twindad) | 1 comments Hello all, joined this group a few weeks back and have not had a chance to post anything yet. One of my recent purchases was Mystique, the Ultimate Collection by Brian K Vaughn. This was one of those books that came out during my 15 year comic hiatus. Enjoyable to watch Mystique operate as a cat's paw for Professor X. Not the same sort of 'Wow' that you get from reading other BKV books (Saga in particular) but a worth while read if you are a fan of the X-Men.
Mystique: Ultimate Collection

I had no idea this series existed! I'm a bit of a Brian K Vaughan fanboy.
That actually brings me to my last purchase. I'm re-reading all of Y: The Last Man for another reading group, and am finally picking up all the HC Deluxe editions. Just finished Y: The Last Man - The Deluxe Edition Book One. Picking up the 2nd volume today.

I've been meaning to pick that up for a while. Is it a must-read?

How is the All you Need is Kill manga? Heard very good things about it and the light novel but haven't read either.

Saga is so insanely good. Been buying all the collections as they come out.

No new comic purchases for me this month. Catching up on the backlog and bought a bunch of prose. A lot of my manga series are due for new volumes though so that'll change soon.

Nenia wrote: "Bought these a while..."

I've both read the manga and light novel, but not the adaptation of the movie graphic novel. I liked the two I read. Quite interesting. And that's after not exactly liking the Tom Cruise film.

One problem with seeing the film before reading the manga, though, was seeing how insanely young the woman looked in the manga.

Meneniareads (nenia) | 27 comments Bought these two today:
Rachel Rising Vol. 5 Night Cometh by Terry Moore and Edward Scissorhands Volume 1 Parts Unknown (Edward Scissorhands, #1) by Kate Leth

I have no idea if Edward Scissorhands Volume 1: Parts Unknown is any good, but it looked so cute I just had to! :D
