This fulfills my Good Neighbor Comics Blogger duties for the month. I don't mind shilling for TS because they all seem to be very cool people, plus they have sent me boxloads of books in the past so I am kinda beholden to them. I only wish that someday they would put out an affordable edition of Lost Girls... I'd love to read that one but no can do the hardcover.
