Comments

  1. And the Christmas list is now complete.

  2. Better list than Amazon’s. The only thing I’m looking at crook eyed is “Yummy.” But to each their own.

  3. It feels so good when you PLONK a troll.

  4. Great to see our AX collection among that best books list… happy, happy.

  5. PlonkProof says:

    now, where was I? Oh yeah, Is it just my elitaphobia or does the inclusion of Batwoman: Elegy on the PW list seem condescendingly obligatory? Like they said “well, I guess we should include at least ONE superhero. Lets make it the gay one so PW looks open minded AND comic inclusive at the same time”.

    The fact that the majority of those GNs never see the inside of a comic book shop and are almost invisible on the B&N shelves when compared to the amount of superhero trades, says something, I imagine.

Speak Your Mind
