Thee Comic Column #76: Stray Bullets: Killers

Anyone who reads this column regularly and has caught the two issues thus far of Drinking with Comics (number three coming next week!) has probably realized that I could talk about David Lapham’s Stray Bullets forever. So there is probably little surprise that the topic of this week’s piece is my reaction to the release of the long-awaited Stray Bullets #41 and the first issue of Stray Bullets: Killers. However, instead of just talking about the books what I thought I’d do is personalize this a bit and try to recreate in words just how much the release of these two books meant to me.

FIRST: REMINDER – Today is May 4th, 2013 and that means it is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY today. Go out to your local comic shop and buy some comics! I’m kinda being a hypocrite here, because this is just about the only day a year I won’t go to a comic shop, but when your shop is as awesome as my two favorites are, Amazing Fantasy in Chicago and The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, CA then they have lines around the block waiting to get in. That’s awesome – I love seeing the increased traffic, wish it would stay year round. I feel justified in avoiding this day however, because I go one or two times a week every other week, so I do my part.
