Well, you see, there's this comic series I've started reading lately, called SCALPED. I remember seeing a preview in some Vertigo comic or another, and I wasn't impressed by the art enough to give it a shot, something which has led me astray quite often. And you know what? Yep, 14 issues in, I'm discovering it and liking it quite a lot. Of course, I could nitpick it, and rest assured I will. I had begun to do just that after reading the first trade collection, titled Indian Country...but I abruptly decided that I wanted to read the rest of it, so I ordered the second trade, Casino Boogie (Stones song title, always something of which I approve) and have arranged to purchase the other three issues that remain uncollected. And what's this? A new issue comes out on Wednesday! Aiee! That means another drive down to BG. This is why I should just buy every #1 issue I can, so I don't miss out, discover something well into its run, and have to bend over backwards to get what I've missed. Yeah, I could wait for the third trade, but you know, life is uncertain and who's to say if there will even be a third collection?

Anyway, if it's all the same to you guys, I'll just write about it after I get the rest, OK? Thanks. You guys are swell.
