Watchmen: An Oral History

There's a 5-page spread on Watchmen (the comic, not the upcoming movie) in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Unfortunately, you have to be a subscriber to read it online. But then, if you're a subscriber, why would you need to read it online?

Haven's NEW HOME (10-17-05)

OK, folks, Haven has moved! We're in our new home, and I think you'll all be pleasantly surprised to discover that we're a scant quarter of a mile from our old home. Not far away at all.

Here's how to get there:

If you're in the parking lot, looking at the store location you're used to, turn to your left, and drive out (over the double speed bump) to the Slaughter Road exit from the shopping center.

Turn RIGHT onto Slaughter Road.

Turn LEFT just to the left of the Heritage Florist shopping center.

Turn RIGHT into the parking lot.

Haven is located at the far right side of the strip.

We've still got the same phone number, so if none of that makes any sense and you have any trouble finding the place, just give me a call at (256) 631-8062 and I'll try to clarify directions if I can. It's taking Knology a little while to get our regular phone line transferred to the new location, but we'll have the same phone number as usual - (256) 430-0505 - as soon as they can get that transferred over.

Anyway, we'll be getting our books on Wednesday as usual - I'll post the invoice below in just a few minutes - so come on by the store and pick up your comics at the new place and hang out with us a while. We look forward to seeing you!

See you at Haven!

Man, this is a huge week! There are a lot of awesome titles shipping this Wednesday, so come check them out ASAP.

Sentry #2 - More of the origin of Marvel’s most powerful, yet most mysterious character.

New Avengers #12 – Who the heck is Ronin?!?! I’m betting it’s Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu. Then again, it could be Iron Fist, with his hair dyed black. Or maybe it’s Nick Fury’s little brother Steven. Come on, Bendis; give us some info here!

Loveless #1 - Brian Azzarello's new hardbitten Western comic hits the stands this week, and it looks awesome. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it actually will be.

Revelations #3 – Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos delve further into this fabulous murder mystery in the Vatican. Awesome book!

Wraithborn #2 - This new book/character continues to impress.

JLA Classified #13 – Warren Ellis is telling one heck of a story in series, and Butch Guice’s artwork hasn’t fallen off one bit from his days on Crossgen’s Ruse. This story arc is impressive.

Haunted Mansion #1 – As a big Disney fan, I’m looking forward to finding out how some of the 999 happy haunts ended up in the spooky Gracey Mansion.

And the G.I. Joe Snake-Eyes wall statue, a representation of the cover of the famous Silent Interlude issue, will make an awesome addition to the Haven d├ęcor. Yeah, it’s technically for me, but it will look beautiful on the walls of the new Haven!

See you at Haven!

I can't wait!
