Really? I mean, it's a cool issue and all. Carnage. I love me a good Carnage vs. Spidey tale. But this wasn't like one of the best ever or an instant classic or anything. And nothing significant happened in this issue.

One of the vendors that frequents Sac-Con always has a copy of 430 in his dollar bins. Every time, I pick it up in excitement, only to (re)discover that it's heavily warped.

I'm sorry, but those Scribblenauts covers are the ugliest things I've seen in forever. That will be the first Batgirl cover I will NOT own.

A guy I work with left me a surprise at my desk the other day:

Batman and Robin #7-B (1:25 Cameron Stewart cover)
Batman and Robin #8-B (1:25 Cameron Stewart cover)
Batman and Robin #9-B (1:25 Cameron Stewart cover)
Batman and Robin #10 - 13 (standard covers)

At first I thought I had lent them to him (and subsequently forgot about it) and he was returning them. Nope, they were his and just didn't want them anymore. So he gave them to me. For free. Gratis. Not a bad way to start my week.
