Book-Talk Sunday reveals the most recent two books I've bought over the last couple of weeks, and both of them were only $5 each. While both were impulse buys, I'm not sure I'll be getting to the first one any time soon:
But the bigger news this week is that I've got, not only my latest LootCrate, but yesterday saw the delivery of my very first Marvel Collector Corps box. First up, LootCrate. The theme this month was Fantasy and there was some good stuff:
There was a really cool Game of Thrones flash drive, plus a set of Game of Thrones magnets. Naturally I gave my daughter the bow tie, because bow ties are cool. There was an inflatable crown, pictured here on top of my daughter's head. A Princess Bride deck of cards. A Harry Potter luggage tag. And last but coolest of all, this Dungeons and Dragons T-shirt, which I've already worn twice.
And the Marvel box, which came yesterday, didn't have as much, but what it did contain was AWESOME:
So I got this Marvel Collector Corps patch and button. An Ultron Zorb figure, a Hulkbuster Iron Man bobblehead, a variant cover of the first issue of Guardians Team-Up with the Avengers, and coolest of all, this killer Avengers Iron Man Vs. Ultron T-shirt. I'm gonna like these Marvel boxes, and it's unfortunate they're only 4 times a year.
And finally, I'm currently reading:
These are the covers to the collected editions, but I'm reading the single issues, and enjoying them a lot so far. Cullen Bunn is a great writer and I try to read as many of his comics as I can, of which there seems to be even more every month.
