Stimulating the economy

I bought a bunch of stuff this weekend:

  • The new Badly Drawn Boy album.
  • “Retro,” the New Order 4 CD box set.
  • A couple of Spider-Man TPB’s, reprinting all the JMS issues that I didn’t already have.
  • A Hulk TPB, reprinting the first Bruce Jones issues.
  • The Powers “Who Killed Retro Girl?” TPB.
  • ASP.NET in a Nutshell. Not as fun as the other stuff, but necessary.

So, I’ve got a lot of listening and reading to do. Too bad I still don’t seem to have enough spare time for all this. Oh well!

(The motivation for buying all the comics, by the way, was a gift certificate that I got for Christmas. I’m not on some mad buying spree. Really.)

Daredevil

Read about a year’s worth of Daredevil today. Brian Michael Bendis is doing a heck of a job on the title, although the pacing of the story is pretty slow. If I’d actually read this stuff over the course of a year, I’d probably have gotten pretty impatient with him. I stopped reading with the last issue before the trial started; I’ll go through that run in a few months, maybe.

I found a good Daredevil site, too: ManWithoutFear.com. Lots of links to reviews, wallpaper, and other stuff.
