I’m so back it’s disgusting. After spending an hour last night hunting down information on the new John Carter series coming from IDW in August, I went back through Previews and found all sorts of stuff I want. It’s as if The Princess of Mars opened the flood gates.
“Why are you so excited?” Stephanie asked when she got home from work.
“The Princess of Mars, baby,” I said, hopping out of my seat and pointing wildly at the soliciation and the covers I had found online. “The Princess of Mars.”
“Oh boy,” she said, mentally rolling her eyes at me.
Later, on our way to dinner I said, “I can’t be out long. I need to do some more research. There’s so much I want to buy now.”
“What’s so important now? Can’t it wait?”
“No way. I’ve been out of the game so long, I feel this need to buy everything. And I need to do it now!” I said.
“How long have you ‘been out of the game’?” she asked, mocking me.
“Two days,” I said, amazed at how long and how short that time frame was.
“Oh boy,” she said again, the conversation over as I started thinking of all the stuff I planned to order this month.
