For the next two weeks, $15 at the Humble Comics Bundle will get you almost all of the IDW My Little Pony comics so far.

That'd be issues 1-23 of the main series, all ten issues of the character-spotlighting micro series, 1-10 of the paired-up Friends Forever side series, and two "Animated" volumes that basically adapt episodes from the show.

Since more comics are on the way, they'll probably add some of the more recently published issues (the main series is up to #25 and Friends Forever is at #11) and maybe throw in the 2013 and 2014 Annuals.

If a measly 15 bucks is too much, you can just pay what you want for issues 1-10 of the micro series and 1-5 of the Friends Forever series, or pay just over the running average to get those comics plus 6-10 of the Friends Forever side series and issues 1-12 of the main series.

It's always best to get in on these sales early, so that you get the obligatory mid-sale New Items added to your purchase automatically.

I've been reading Journey Into Mystery comics starring kid Loki and oh man it's so great I don't want it to end. Unfortunately I know it does (and even kind of how) because I read Young Avengers first. And also Agent of Asgard. But kid Loki > young adult Loki.

Now the Humble Books Bundle is giving away a free comic each day as part of the Dynamite MEGA Holidays bundle. Today's free issue is Red Sonja #7, apparently. Just show up and click to get your download key.
The sale itself is huge-mongous, too!

Got a bunch of tpbs arrive yesterday. Including Grant Morrison's X-Men run vol 7 & 8. I can't tell whether they're so crazy because I was drunk when I read them or because Grant Morrison was drunk when he wrote them or because they're just crazy. Either way I won't go into spoilers.

Also reading Vol 1 of Sex Criminals. Can't think of a funnier, better book - book in the most generalised way - that I've read in years.

Hawkeye Vol 3 yet to read.

But Jeebus Christmas, is Sex Criminals so good!

Was really annoyed at work all afternoon 'cos my copy of Saga vol.4 got delivered at around lunch time, and my work has some bullshit 'no reading comic books whilst your pretending to listen to customers' policy.

Holy shit is Saga still awesome. I've read a few of Brian K Vaughan's things before, and always enjoyed them but kinda get tired of his voice after a while. But with Fiona Staples art and character design you can NOT stop reading this stuff.

What with Saga, Manhattan Projects, East Of West, Pretty Deadly and Sex Criminals, I'm amazed anyone still reads the big two any more. Image Comics is having a Scarlett Johansen of a year. Even it's second tier (to me, anyways) titles - Deadly Class, Black Science - are as good as probably anything Marvel are doing, and a tonne better than nearly every DC title.

Not gonna lie, I'm actually pretty confident Paul Rudd can make this work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xInh3VhAWs8

Got back from work at 18:40 knowing that I had Manhattan Projects Vol 5 waiting for me. Oh, I teased ... rolled a little ciggie, poured a nice Chenin Blanc ... teased that bitch out of her cardboard Amazon branded packaging, real slow like ... tried a little foreplay (dug out volume 4 and skimmed it) ... but oh boy ...

I am so into this dirty science / alternate history comic ... I was done 19:30. Satisfied, but not sated, hungry for more ...


Anyway, anyone who wants to borrow my copy is welcome, it was excellent.

Just wait till I have my way with Sex Criminals, Vol 2, out at the end of the month. Oh yeah baby. We both know what happens to books like that!

I am still on a massive downer knowing that this could have been an Edgar Wright movie, but fuck it, let's move on.

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas's Prosthetic Beard in a Marvel movie? Together? I fold, take my money.

(Also can I be the one trillionth person to notice that Paul Rudd just never ages - man looks so good. He must have a rapidly decaying self portrait barely hanging together in Alicia Silverstone's home/E Z Store Lock Up).

I picked up Marvel 1602 recently and absolutely loved it. If you aren't familiar with it, Neil Gaiman basically rewrites the Marvel Universe with a ton of major characters set in the year 1602. It's fun, and the context makes sense by the end of it.

Also, I finally got around to reading The Killing Joke. I could use some more DC stuff to read, at least some of the stories that have held up over the years. None of that New 52 crap or Superman deciding to teach Jimmy Olsen a lesson by nearly drowning him or other such superdickery.

The new Humble Books Bundle is for Image comics, with up to 143 issues in the deal so far.
Some highlights:

- At a new $18 level you get Saga volume 1 and The Walking Dead Compendium 1 along with a bunch of other stuff.
- At the "just above average" level you get the first volumes of Sex Criminals, Velvet, The Fuse, The Wicked + The Divine, and The Manhattan Projects, plus other stuff including Vol. 22 of The Walking Dead.
- The pay-anything level includes first volumes of Alex + Ada, The Elephantmen!, Minimum Wage, and Cowl as well as (you guessed it) a bunch of other stuff.

As usual they're going to start piling more comics onto the bundle by the halfway point in the sale. Also, at 11 am Pacific Time (GMT -Cool they're going to start handing out free issues each day like the last sale. Just show up and click the button for your free issue of the day until the sale ends.

The charity option this time around is for The Hero Initiative, which tries to create a safety net for older comic book creators who may have been screwed over by old industry practices and facing steep medical bills or other potentially ruinous expenses, and tries to help them get back into paying work (comics or otherwise).

I think 1602 had a run after Gaiman wrote the book, there may be more stuff out there. It was certainly a fun read, and for me a fun book to return to as I'd rarely read any Marvel comics when I read that. So fresh readings later make me go 'oh so that's who that is!'.

*edit: Here's one of the sequels, 1602: The New World written by Greg Pak who did World War Hulk. /edit *

Regarding older DC stuff / Alan Moore 'Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow. For Batman stuff, Jeph Loeb's The Long Halloween is my personal favourite. You've probably read both mind, they've been out for some time. Grant Morrison's Arkham Asylum is in the same boat; the plot is a little thinner but the artwork by Dave McKean is scary pretty.
