As discussed in episode 139 (coming tomorrow night), we have some documented piles of shame!
Pictured above is some of Ron’s shame, although he is the first to admit his digital backlog is the one out of hand. Some great stuff on there, and I personally also have a few of those House of Mystery collections I need to get to.
Not much detail in Eric’s stack, but you can tell it is a pretty good chunk that will take several days of ignoring family and friends to get finished. Order a pizza and get those suckers read!
Dante has some real shame here! Look at some of those incredible comics he is just letting sit there while he rolls around in circles on the derby track. Thor The Mighty Avenger, Habibi, Stumptown, Queen and County! The biggest crime in that unread pile is Battlefields without a doubt.
Brian has several books in there he needs to read so I can borrow them! I do suggest he moves The Killer and Ignition City to the top of the stacks though, both of those are fantastic reads.
Aaron doesn’t do anything halfa-ssed in the world of comics, and that includes amassing a very large unread pile of fine comics.
This is the second stack from Aaron, and this is just getting crazy! Look at those books not being read! Wait? What? He has yet another one?
This is the 3rd, and thankfully last photo from Aaron. Second time Habibi has shown up in these stacks. We all have our shame, folks, and some of these people are baring their souls, as flawed as they may be.
See that whole middle shelf? The black one? Yep, that is all the stuff Bobgar hasn’t gotten to! This is what my unread pile looked like a year ago. This ladies and gentlemen is when you know you have a serious comic habit when you cannot get to THIS many books!
All of these photos have been shown to let you know you are not alone in the world. Countless others suffer from backlog fatigue, so I won’t waste anymore time, turn off your computer and go read some damn comics (unless they are all digital, then of course leave the computer on).
There will not be a regular new episode this week due to John being sick as a dog, but there should be a mini episode with John, Robb and Cory . . . ya know, if our podcast host wouldn’t have technical problems all the damn time. Yep. So enjoy that awesomeness that is above, and read your damn books. Even the romance novels. Especially your comic books.
We have returned from Chicago tired and beaten men (some more tired and beaten than others). C2E2 2012 was a blast . . . so much so we kept leaving the camera at the hotel! So not a ton of photos, but we promise next year we will snag a bunch more of ourselves, panels, creators, artist alley and as many butt shots as possible!!
