Tuesday, July 22, 2008

    I love doing the blog but these issues are really special, where we all get to really jam and expand the community somehow. And this one is the best yet!

    and I’m gonna expand my Shaky Kane article and interview here on the blog and reproduce a buch of his stuff in color.

    It’s a fun read.

    SHAKY KANE cover!

    Benjamin Marra’s indicia illo is hi-larious!

    Sammy Harkham’s article is GREAT! very timely

    Tim rips it with his review of (Brian Chippendale’s favorite comic) BERSERK!
    and then rips Dave Sim to pieces! oof!!

    Dan unleashes the Woody Gelman flood.

    It’s a greta issue, great for summer evening reading with a beer.

    Ah, the spoils of being at the office while everyone else is in San Diego!

    A friend of mine is travelling from Buenos Aires to NY and he will be staying in Manhattan.

    I give him money to bring me lots of Picturebox stuff, but I donĀ“t know where to send him.

    Are the Picturebox stuff avaiable only at your Brooklyn store?

    Can he get them in Manhattan?

    Thanks for the information!

    Hey Pablo —

    Dan’s on a plane back from San Diego right now, and he may end up correcting me when he gets back, but Jim Hanley’s Universe has a good selection of PictureBox stuff, and Forbidden Planet might have some too if your friend can’t make it out of Manhattan. I’m not sure, since CC4 just debuted at San Diego and I don’t believe it’s officially shipped yet, but they may have copies of the new Comics Comics.

    But the PictureBox store is worth the trip!

  7. Kioskerman says:

    Thanks a lot Tim! I suspected those two may have some.
    I want that Sammy Harkham article in the CC4. Hopes he gets it.
    Deliverys to Argentina are 20 times de price in cost!
    So it would be just great.
    PD: Hopes he gets to Brooklyn.
