nerdboy dilemma

I was in the U District yesterday, and happened to be near Zanadu Comics, so I thought I'd check in with the superhero world and see what was going on. OMG, they had a hardcover collection of Jack Kirby's Devil Dinosaur. I had always dreamed of such a thing happening, but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would come to pass. On top of that, I soon discovered that a hardcover collection of Jack Kirby's Silver Star was also on the shelf. Again, never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that someone would take one of the weirdest comics from my youth and give it the deluxe treatment. Both books were priced in the $30 range. I had $5 in my pocket. I walked out with a copy of the elusive (to me) ATLAS #3 by Dylan Horrocks. A great comic, but I read it in five minutes. It almost makes me want to go out and find a real job so I can buy the Kirby collections that are now becoming available.

If any kind person suddenly wants to "gift" me for no apparent reason....

My Amazon.com Wish List

EDIT: Thank you, kind person who purchased these!
