That Sad Moment.


July 3, 2017 by sandwichcontrol

When you’re caught up on all your comics.

I’ll never know that feeling. Because my Amazon wishlist is now about half trade paperbacks and graphic novels. I will never be caught up.

Today’s theme is: Animal.

Remember what I said I was going to do this weekend?

I said I was going to:

a) Not work.

b) Read all of my single issue comics.

3) Catch up on “American Gods”.

I’m nothing if not a man of my word.

I did those things.

I read everything but the newest issue of “Paper Girls” because I’m waiting on my comic dealer to bring me issues 11-13.

I also may have read the worst/best comic book of all time…

It’s called “Crime Destroyer”. Guess what that dude in purple calls himself. Go on. Guess.


Crime Destroyer.

Hence the CD on his chest.

And it’s awful. But kind of amazing. It definitely harkens back to the old days of comics. Not only is it printed on newsprint so it’s grainy as fuck, but it’s also ridiculously over-written. I mean, some dude actually has an inner monologue wondering about where Crime Destroyer gained such badass skills and then second guesses himself by asking if he actually wants to know and then makes a note to investigate him anyway. That’s one whole panel.

But when you find a comic with a cover like that sitting on the rack at the comic book shop, you buy it. Because that cover is amazing.

I tired to ration out my comics so that they’d last all weekend. I did a pretty good job, too. I saved the two newest issues of “Saga” for last. And they were so fucking worth it…

July 2

Today is Monday.

This week is going to be all fucked up.

Today is normal.

Tomorrow is a holiday.

Wednesday I go to Nashville bright and early to get Lucky Charm. We are going to take a mini road trip on the way back to Lippincottonia. She’ll be using the guest room as her base of operations as she plans and executes other mini adventures over the next few weeks.

She normally works at pony camp and since it’s not happening this year, she is free to play with us for a little bit.

That being said, the usual will apply while I’m gone. Photos will be taken. No posts until I get back.

Oh, look at the time.

This workout isn’t going to do itself.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
