A really slow week for me. I bought no comics. I could have picked up the new issue of Conan but I’m tired of them releasing trades cheaper that I pick up the issues for. So now I’ll just pick up the trades of Conan.

I did pick up two magazines about comics: Back Issue 17 – The Super-Girls issue and Hogan’s Alley 14. I’ve picked up Back Issue before and it is usually good but this is the first issue of Hogan’s Alley I’ve bought. It calls itself “the magazine of cartoon arts” and covers comic strips and animation. I’ll give it a read.

Last weeks Scarlet Traces: The Great Game 1 gets a positive review. It is a story that takes place in an alternate world where Martians have invaded and the British have driven them off. The year is 1945 and the rest of the world is growing tired of Britain keeping the war going (on Mars), reaping the benefits of Martian technology and speaking for the whole Earth. I’ll be picking up the final three issues.

The Escapists was also good. It is a story of a guy reviving a forgotten comic book character. I’ll pick up the rest of the series.

If you read my last entry you know that I won’t be picking up the next issue of Rokkin.
