    There's a really nice comic shop here near our house. Very clean, big place with 2 separate rooms for role playing that also look very nice and clean. He only sells new comics. Near my parents house there is an almost disgusting comic store, but they have rooms full of old dusty comics and they sell new comics. But do not go in there if you have allergies. Place literally creeps me out, I think it's cool to go find some old treasure, but you could dust once in a while, right?

    Rebecca, is that from the issue were Janson, Hobbie, and Plourr go to Corellia?

    Also, I believe we were promised more rears. O:)

    Oh yeah, I've finally gotten my husband to start reading the X-wing series and I wanted to streamline material so he can get the full experience. What do you guys think of the order of following reading list?

    1. Rogue Squadron
    2. The Phantom Affair, Battleground Tatooine, Warrior Princess
    3. Wedge's Gamble
    4. The Baron Fel and Rise of Isard comics (In the Empire's Service, Family Ties, Masquerade, and Mandatory Retirement)
    5. Krytos Trap, Bacta War
    6. I, Jedi (if he needs to read more about Corran)
    7. Wraith Squadron, Iron Fist, Solo Command
    8. Thrawn Trilogy
    9. Isard's Revenge
    10. to be continued...

    I left out the Rogue Leader comic and Requiem for a Rogue, which I didn't like. As it is, it's going to take him about a year to finish everything on here. Am I forgetting anything?

    I just think you are lucky you have the comics. I have Phantom Affair and In the Empire's Service. Wanted to just by the Omnibus set by my husband says we have to get the comics, they are better for collecting reasons. So I'm waiting for Christmas to see what I get, then I will order the rest.

    The comics are excellent. Your husband has great wisdom, clearly. I only got the first Omnibus because it had Rogue Leader and another X-wing comic I didn't have, but it wasn't very good except for Phantom Affair.

    @MiraxTerrik yup, that's the one. There was only a couple Wes butts in the entire series, I was disappointed. Clearly the artists don't know that his rear is infamous now.

    And you'll all have to wait, it took me about three hours to go through all the comics just for Wes images and then scan what I found, and I have an exam tomorrow (yes, on a Sunday [face_sigh]). I know there's a good Corran butt in that same comic that the Wes one is from, but you'll have to make specific requests if you'd like any other than that :p I have a few more Janson comic icons and once my exams are done but before I go to Sweden I'd be happy to make icons for anyone out of the Rogue Squadron comics... ask and you shall receive :)

    Yeah, don't feel the need to satisfy our more basal needs at the expense of your studies. ;)

    I wonder why no one's ever made a Hobbie fan club around here. I'm going to request a little Soontir. There should be a decent selection to choose from. :p

    The Hobbie fan club, so many possibilities. They could call themselves the "Bacta poster boys" or "Down on their luck" or "It's worse than that"...my kind of club...as if I'm not in enough clubs around here.

    Mirax My husband is buying/having an imperial 181st flight suit made for me so I can join the 501st with him.

    I'm voting for "It's worse than that" to be in the title. It's the first thing I think of whenever Hobbie comes to mind.

    Runjedi, I cannot tell you how awesome I think that is. I have vague plans to make the nerfhide jacket Mirax is always wearing but it's a ways off. First, I need to find a decently matching jacket from the thrift store or otherwise cheaply.

    I'm just fortunate that my husband really wants me to join the 501st. All I did was say I would be interested in the costume and he started making orders. He doesn't even know what the 181st is.

    Hah, that's awesome. So this is the reason for the purchasing of comics, yes? Educational purposes?

    I can has Wedge-rear? [face_batting]

    While reading Mercy Kill, I used a whole bunch of Post-It notes to record my thoughts as I went (something I've never done before), since you can never get back that first reaction. At Chapter 27, horror of horrors, I ran out of Post-Its! Cue the mad ransacking of my room as I scrambled to find MORE PAPER OH GOD I NEED MORE PAPER I MUST CONTINUE!

    All in all, I wrote nearly 3000 words in note form. Maybe I should post them to my livejournal or something...

    @Katana_Sundancer Yes! Please do so! I would so reread MK while following your notes. I wish I had done the same thing. I know my husband got an earful while I was reading; too bad he can't recall anything I said.

    Wilco, @MiraxTerrik. Same name for me there as here. I have to say, you definitely need the book there, since some of my references are pretty damn inscrutable unless you know what I'm talking about. But I've got page numbers listed, so hopefully, that helps.

    I wanted the comics before I even thought of the costume idea, now they are pretty much a necessity. My husband got so tired of my EU ramblings this summer. I know he is glad I found this outlet.

    I just found your page. Your LJ is a dangerous place for me... "Wedge Antilles...Sex God" indeed. ;)
