I splurged.

Not only did I get most of the comics I wanted this week (predictably, they didn't have Stumptown #3; I guess it'll be Ebay for that), but I also got the issue of Unwritten I missed from two weeks ago 'cos I didn't go to the comic shop that week 'cos there that was the only comic I wanted (there was one copy sitting there, which, considering I buy Unwritten from my local comic shop every month, means it was simply waiting for me; thanks for waiting, Unwritten). And not only that, this came in too:













The first new Dan Clowes book in an age. And it's all original material too – previous Clowes books have consisted of comics already published in his Eightball comic series (Ghost World, Ice Haven). His David Boring is one of my favourite comics ever, right up there alongside Joe Sacco's Safe Area Gorazde, Miller and Mazzucchelli's Batman: Year One, Eddie Campbell's How to Be an Artist and Mike Carey and Peter Gross' Lucifer. So I'm really looking forward to reading Wilson. It's a lovely book too – the size of an old British annual (as Paul Gravett has pointed out) and beautifully printed, Clowes' linework and colours looking gorgeous.













Huzzah.
