Another round of the budget game, considering what I’d buy with $15.
The book of the week is, of course, Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour (Oni Press, $12), the final volume in the series and the precursor to the movie, due out next month and eagerly anticipated. However, although Diamond is shipping the book this week, it’s not supposed to be on sale until the 20th, so that doesn’t count.
Manga-wise, the only volume I’m interested in is the 16th book of Inubaka Crazy for Dogs (Viz, $10), but thanks to Viz’s generosity, I’m reading it now. I also read Bighead Press’ Escape From Terra ($13) back at ordering time; unfortunately, I didn’t care much for it.
So that leaves me with periodical comics. Oni has the second issues of two series I’m enjoying, Frenemy of the State and The Sixth Gun, at $4 each. That leaves me with $7, which is enough to get Birds of Prey #3 (DC, $3) and Avengers Academy #2 (Marvel, $3), with $1 left over for tax.
If I was going to the comic shop, I’d flip through Bongo Comics’ Comic Book Guy The Comic Book #1 ($4), to see what kind of approach they were taking. If anyone checks it out, let me know. I’d probably also be curious about Girl Comics #3 (Marvel, $5), just to see who’s in this issue of the anthology.
