Yesterday, there was a fairly large comicon in Boston. Lots of artists with tables, lots of businesses with tables, including the stores I work for. I was on my way there when I realized I didn't have my admit free ticket, so I decided to wait around one of our stores until it opened, and pick up a spare ticket. While I waited, I perused the used bookstore down the street, and found $50 worth of used graphic novels that 1.) I wanted and 2.) were out of print. $50 being the amount I had set aside to buy trades at the comicon. I was relieved to discover, when I got to the con, that they had nothing I wanted.
As I flipped through a bunch of diffferent New Mutant/Academy X titles to remember continuity, I noticed for the first time something completely horrible. As a lover of obscure puns, a lizard owner, and a gay man who likes asses, how did I not notice that the the green gay mutant's name is Anole. And what sick bastard named him?
