I swear,… some comic book geeks are FAST.
Maybe they have a personal Transporter. Maybe a special ability, like Deep Tunnel. Or just maybe some are meta-humans and are speedsters.

I DON’T BLOODY KNOW!

The last two (uno y dos) blog entries I made has me being uberly excited about the release of Nightwing #147.

God, I was SO excited.

In Hong Kong, new comics are released on a Thursday. But on Wednesday a typhoon came and all business were closed. So this week, new comics were released on a Friday.

On Friday night I went to my comic book store. Skipping with awesomeness as I was getting closer. When I get there I found out that Nightwing #147… WAS SOLD OUT!
I was like “oh… it’s okay, I’m chill. I’ll go checkout the other store”
The other place is just two storey down, so I fast walked there not only to find out that it was SOLD OUT as well.

I was/am majorly pissed off.

There are only two comic book stores in Hong Kong, and Nightwing #147 was SOLD OUT at both places. They said they’re gonna re-order, and will be here in 2 weeks.
I’m so tired of waiting.

See, I went to the store at 8pm. Both stores opens at around 3pm. So it 5 hours ALL copies of Nightwing #147 that existed in Hong Kong were sold out. Bloody hell, how is that possible!!!
Maybe I need a higher level of geekiness to have my own teleporter!

TEACH ME HOW TO GRIND FOR MORE EXP PL0X!

ugh…

But on the awesome side I found The Flash #228, which is a crossover with Nightwing! I have yet to read it x]
I also bought Marvel’s Kick-Ass #3, which I was planning to buy after reading it’s summary on Marvel’s site… And I thought the summary was exaggerated, but gosh, it’s totally AWESOME!

Kick-Ass is about a comic book fan (v. geeky) who decides to dress-up as a superhero to fight crime. But the cool part is that it’s set in this world, so no superheroes exists! And it’s fairly realistic; the main character gets beaten-up shitless and does good deeds to get laid.
Anyway, he gets super interweb famous after he posts a video of himself fighting muggers.

And he gets free boobies!

Kick-Ass #3 ends with him getting beaten up by people who he tries to “set things straight” with. And enter!, a nine year old girl who duel wields katanas! … and she pretty much saves his ass.

Mmm~, gotta love ultra violence!

Even though this was the first issue of Kick-Ass I have picked up, it was easy to catchup and an enjoyable read! VERY enjoyable. So pick up an issue, because you won’t regret it! :)

<3!

…ohohoh, and duuuude! The second store I went to, which isn’t my usual comic book store, gave me a free badge!
It has Lex Luthor on it, and says “VOTE LEX 2000”. I can pin it onto my school bag :3
Hah, I’m so going back there for more freebies!
