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.
