Lazy journal

Once again, no drawings to post. Actually, I should be drawing for work but taking a break.

First things first: The very last volume of Flight is out! Flight 8 can be found in any good bookstore or can be ordered on Amazon. So many great artists contributed, making this book a must have. Look for it in your local bookstore or online.
(No, I'm not in it, ha ha! I'll be in Explorer, out sometimes next year).

Another book to look out for: the collected Avatar stories made for Nick Magazine have been collected into this very nice trade paperback. It includes stories that had never seen print in the US!

Was going to write about Cars 2 but my brain is shutting down and every line I wrote was pure nonsense rambling.

I added the Avatar book to my wish list. I can't share it on FaceBook, where I do not have an account, because I am of the considered opinion that InYourFaceBook is evil incarnate (no offence to the people who actually have them, just to the spamrrific site itself).

It's an obvious crossover, though. CARS III: RISE OF THE TRANSFORMERS.

YESSSSSSS!!! 'The Lost Adventures' is FINALLY out! I've had that in back- order at my book store for, like, 3 months! And each week I'd come in like "Is it in yet?!?!" And each time they'd be like "NO!"
-_-' I'm actually suprised they haven't banned me from there.... I spend my life in there, just browsing and chilling:)

And I'm gonna have to check out this 'Flight'. I'm always open for new books!

Hope you enjoy Flight! I can't tell which one is my absolute fave, but the material in volume 8 is really strong.

Flight 8 already has a lovely place in my book shelf. Still waiting for the AtlA comic to arrive. 8D

The market has changed, and anthologies are not as popular as they used to, unfortunately. Still, there is still some space for that, especially for younger readers, so Explorer will take over.

Yes, so glad someone decided to publish all the short stories. So nice to have them all in one place.

I'm going to cry if I walk into my comic book store today and they don't have it considering Amazon says it's available and I pre-ordered my copy at the Comic store WEEKS ago. (Because when I pre-ordered it, they said it wasn't coming out until January)

Hope you got your copy by now :)

Hey, speaking of books, did you know that Amazon is finally taking down those legal but absolutely unethical and costly books from that German company (Alphascript) which trapped you with a badly assembled compendium of Egyptian blurbs from Wikipedia?

Go to PrimeHunter's user talk page on this topic on Wikipedia and scroll to the bottom:

At first glance, it looks like new titles are being stopped, but older titles are still listed, probably due to the fact that they are trying to get rid of whatever stock they have.

Still, this could be the beginning of the end for Alphascript-Betascript VDM and all other publishers using that system of copy pasting articles to make a quick buck.

That IS good news :)
