    Ja, trade paperbacks. You can get the hard covers instead, if you want (they are much nicer and cost a little more). Sometimes Planet Hulk comes in two parts, but you'll be able to find it as a single volume. So starting point would be either just "Planet Hulk" or "Planet Hulk: Volume 1".
    That's what she said.

    I went to Outer Limits' new store in Lynnwood Road today. Lekker little place, more focused on board games and table top card games. But I did do some bin diving and got Wolverine and the X-Men #39. That issue has eluded me forever and was the only issue that I needed to complete the entire 42 issue run. I feel good today.

    Attention!

    MASSIVE sale on Grant Morrison's Vertigo works on Comixology. We3, Flex Mentallo, the entire Doom Patrol run and some more stuff. This is probably a great place to start with Morrison's works. Get in there!

    Ja, I took a drive there the other day too. I didn't realise that Outer Limits got so expensive! They have prices comparable to Exclusive Books now. It's a bit of a shame cause it was always my second favourite store for price reasons and because it was close by. I think I'll just stick to Zed-Bees and Cosmic Comics.

    What is really nice about the new Outer Limits store is that they have great variety with their board games and they have a weekly board-gaming meeting on Wednesdays where you can come in and play any game that you bring, or one of their demo games.

    It's awesome that you managed to complete your Wolverine and the X-men series. I'm looking for issue #17 or #18 (Can't quite remember now) of Supreme Power. It was the last issue printed. I loved that series. I should read it again.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I have been meaning to read Doom Patrol. I'm a big Morrison fan and have 90% of everything he's done except for Doom Patrol

    Their prices seem to be relative to the R/$ exchange rate, where other stores just keep at a flat rate. Their board gaming nights look like fun, I'll drop by one night.

    I'll keep an eye out for those two issues, maybe I can find you a copy sometime.

    Doom Patrol has been on my list for a very long time. I can't wait to start reading it.


    On a different note, I'm starting my comic book project for the course today. Handed in my second written assignment last night, hopefully it goes as well as the first one (I smashed 96% for the first one )

    I think Outer Limits do track the exchange rate, but I've seen stuff of theirs priced at 150% of non-specialist suppliers (e.g. Takealot and Raru) which means their markup is huge.

    If you do find a copy of the last supreme power, please do let me know

    Congrats on the assignment! You did flippin' well man. Unfortunately, I fell off the wagon with the course. I started off very keen, but I struggled to get past the second week and then didn't complete the first assignment. Time constraints made it difficult for me and I just didn't make the time. Maybe I'll give it another bash next time the course rolls around (if it does).

    I'm sure it'll come around again, as this was the second time and there are a lot of people doing it. I'm loving this course, because I get to learn more about something that I love. Is your brother still doing the course?

    He was worse than me with it, he didn't even start! I'll get him onto it next time though. I know that it'll be really important for his studies.

    I am ashamed of my family's lack of commitment...

    Ag, it only really works when you have time to put into it. I am a little behind with the lectures, but nothing that I can't catch up with in a night.

    Just found out why T-Ray hates Deadpool so much, quite a shocker.
