(Before I go on, I trust that there were a lot of good books that came out last Wed., I just happened to NOT READ any of them due to a little something you may have heard about me talk about here.)
Anyways, to cut to the quick, the first reason was simply that a new issue of SCALPED came out, AKA TBCBWC (The Best Comic Being Written Currently). That is always a cause for celebration, and indeed Scalped is one of the few books that lately I have put aside ASOIAF for temporarily whenever it comes out. Issue #48 was masterfully done as usual (my favorite line was Dash to Shunka, "Anytime you want, Sweetheart." - great panel progression for that scene as well.)
The next bit was foreshadowed by me when I put this out for the world to read earlier here. Now I'm just glad its where I always wanted it.
The 2nd reason last Wed. was so wonderful was that the only letter I have every written to a comic showed up in, you guessed it, that issue. To some, this may not seem like a big deal, to me, I feel that I have been immortalized in what I think will go down as my favorite comic of all time.
All comics writers out there (including Jason Aaron), please prove me wrong and just try to 1-up this masterwork of a series (it'll be a superhuman task).
And if you don't, I got my place in the letters column of the best.
