I am finally into double figures. This brings all sorts of thoughts to mind. Like how am I going to fit all of the titles I still have left into my dwindling number of days? And more importantly what the hell am I going to do without a daily blog to suck up all my free time.
Plus, dear reader, we also have to think about how we are going to choose the final issue!

Another month down and some killer titles. Proof and Transmetropolitan have been on my radar for some time and it is great to finally get a chance to enjoy them both. There were some brilliant off the radar titles such as Americus, The Tourist, and The Chimpanzee Complex. Powers, Crossed, Walking Dead and Wet moon all prove that long established titles don’t necessarily lose their magic.
My star was possibly Axe Cop for making me laugh for hours on end, Pride for the great art or The Tourist for proving that less truly is more. Plus the twist in American Jesus was out of this world.
See you next month. Not many of them left so make the most of it.
