what I bought this week 12/3

This is a new feature for the blog page to try to give it some original written content.  I will be running down my comics purchases for the day/week whenever I feel like sharing.  These are not reviews, but there may be notes of interest. 

On Wednesday, I stopped at Borders and bought Amazing Spider-man #536.  Somehow JJ (sometime guest of the show) had this comic days before it was out at my local comic shop.  Either my shop got a late shipment or whatever gas station/grocery store/bookstore he bought it from has good connections...  I also decided to sample the new Richard Donner co-written Action Comics #845.  I will review this on the show because new Attic correspondent Pat has sent me an audio review of the previous issue.

Today, I got my new books: The Official Handbook to the Invincible Universe #1, Newuniversal #1, Agents of Atlas #5, 52#31, and Justice Society of America #1.

I also drove to my favorite back issue store and picked up The Mighty Crusaders (the outrageous 1960s series) #3, Marvel Two-in-One #35 (Skull the Slayer! I've been looking for this one), and (insert drum roll) Detective Comics #359-- the first appearance of the Barbara Gordon Batgirl!  I got that in a tattered, but otherwise decent condition for $6.50.  That is why I love this store...

Still having trouble with episode 25.  I'm going to re-edit it; the problem may be in the larger file size.  I never claimed I was good with computers.  I just like talking about comics...

So, the show won't be an hour.  I will try to still make it as long as I can.  Bits that were edited out will appear in episode 26.  Stay tuned over the next 2 days.  I'd edit it now, but it's 2AM.  It's happy-sleepy time for this little narrowcaster...

By the way, interested in Archie Comics superheroes?  Look no further than http://www.mightycrusaders.net  It's a great site for fans of The Mighty Crusaders, including Who's Who/Marvel handbook style profiles, which I enjoy.  Episode 27 will tentatively feature a review of an old 1960s Mighty Crusaders comic.

Just when it started to look like Saturday was the normal upload day for The Comic Book Attic, I have to switch things up.  Beware of me; I'm unpredictable...Actually, in a few days I will have my internet restored at home, and you will get an episode whenever I get one done (providing I have space on my account, of course).  That still means a (usually) weekly show, just no set day. 

Right now my computer is dissassembled, much like the Avengers (or currently, New Avengers) due to the arrival of new carpeting to our home.  So, I can't record a new episode until I reassemble the machine.  Even if I had a new one recorded, we're going to NYC Saturday.  I plan to visit Midtown Comics for the first time.  It oughta be an experience--oh, and the museums will be nice too. I will be sure to report on the trip in the show.

Episode 21 will be a lost episode.  Episode 22 will be new.  I'm working up to #25, which will, I hope, be a special event.  More on that in the show...
