When it comes to consuming entertainment, I reached the digital tipping point a long time ago. For cost, convenience, and the distance to occasionally refrain from adding impulse purchases, it’s much more convenient.
But it doesn’t mean that I am averse to buying physical products when I’m able. For instance, if I happen to be somewhere with a decent comic shop. Comics are one of the few forms of media which I personally still prefer in a print format.
Hence why a recent trip to Cambridge saw me return with:
- Preacher TP Vol 04 Ancient History New Edition
- Preacher TP Vol 05 Dixie Fried New Edition: Dixie Fried : Featuring Cassidy : Blood & Whiskey : a Tale from the Good Ol’ Days
- Transmetropolitan, Vol 1: Back on the Street
Transmetropolitan was originally published in the late 90’s, and ended in 2002, written by Warren Ellis, and as the cyberpunk tale of a journalist in the future, has been on my list to read for ages.
Meanwhile the Preacher series, written by Garth Ennis, which ended in 2000, is a Western-influenced tale featuring (unsurprisingly) a fair amount of religion.
Two classic series I really need to finish!
