I had time to kill between going to the new job to fill out paperwork and picking Stephen up from school. And since there is a comic book shop right around the corner from the school (relatively speaking)…
I walked in and asked the counter guy “What was the best selling comic book last week?” He had a bit of trouble coming up with something, but one thing was certain: It was NOT War Of Kings #1. Normally this might bode bad, but they also had trouble moving Secret Invasion stuff and that was the best selling book last year.
He finally came up with Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season Eight #23. And even though I broke my streak of issues not bought of Buffy, I picked it up.
I also picked up Stormwatch Team Achilles Vol. 2 because I liked vol 1 so much. Unfortunately, it has one of the worst endings I have ever read in a collection. Major cliffhanger and I’m not sure that Vol 3 was ever released.
