Well kids I am going to save you some time this week . There is only one book last week that stands out, and one book this week that stands out. Don’t get me wrong there is cool stuff out there but sometimes you read your stuff and there is one thing that dominates your thoughts and that’s where I’m at now.
Danger Girl/G.I.Joe #1 of 4 $3.99
I am a sucker for a good description and special events. I’ve heard a lot about Danger Girl and I am an 80’s kid so what else could I ask for. Here is the thing I’ve read the preview description, and the title caught my eye . So in the end this could be a real piece of crap. One last thing this was in the description:Spies!Girls!Ninjas!Cobra! well its official I am a mindless drone but one that well entertained.
Pick of the week 7/11
Harbinger #2 $3.99

A very wise man on a very awesome podcast that may or may not be hosted on this website commented on a Valiant releasing a few really good books and this is one of them. I have to admit that I did not pay attention to Valiant before I was told of this book . The premise of the book is there is a kid that has the ability to put thoughts in to people’s heads. Little does he know he is not alone with these powers and he has even more dangerous powers also. He is traveling with another runaway with a serious mental condition and both of them self medicating just to get by. He returns to his old neighborhood and uses his powers to convince a crush from his past to fall in love with him.
His bliss is interrupted by a talking dog and S.W.A.T. team so a normal day. I am not going to spoil the end but Dysart has written this book so well . It leaves you upset by the choices at the end and it has the real quality of there was not a good choice there was just varying degrees of nut punches. I am in for the ride on this book and don’t see me dropping it anytime soon.
There is a book out in print this week called Finding Gossamyr if you see this book buy it. Without a doubt the most beautiful book all year.
One last note my Comic obsession didn’t take long to manifest I keep all my issues on my Iphone and then dwindle the list down on my Kindle or Ipad . Well last week my Comixology file is bigger than my music file and that is from March so I’m scared to see where I’ll be come next March.
That’s all this week kids don’t forget to listen to Burntweiners & The Pull List Podcast, and of course stalk us on Twitter @Lunchbox700, and @burntweiners
