I'm a bit scared to put them all in a pile, for fear of being crushed should they fall.

Okay, between the birthday, a bigger-than-usual DCBS shipment, the stuff I got in trade from Lone Star Comics, and books from the New York Comic Con I haven't gotten around to yet, this is what my comics "To Read" pile looks like at the moment:

Single Issues:
  • All Star Superman #7
  • The Brave and the Bold (current series) #3
  • The Spirit #5
  • The Legion of Super Heroes in the 31st Century #1
  • Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four #1
  • Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #s 28 & 29
  • Green Lantern Corps #11
  • Jonah Hex #18
  • Optic Nerve #11
  • Marvel Adventures Avengers #12
  • Johnny Hiro #1
  • Adventure Comics #411
  • The Brave and the Bold (original series) #116
  • Green Lantern: Mosaic #s 2 & 3
  • Legion of Super Heroes (V3, the Baxter run) #s 17, 18, 19, and Annual #1
  • E-Man #9
  • Ambush Bug Nothing Special #1
  • Legion Lost #s 4, 5, 6, and 7

Collections/Original Graphic Novels:
  • Shazam Family Archives Vol. 1
  • Runaways Vol. 7: Live Fast
  • Agents of Atlas
  • Marvel Adventures Spider-Man Vol. 3: Doom with a View
  • Marvel Adventures Spider-Man Vol. 5: Monsters on the Prowl
  • Birds of Prey: Of Like Minds
  • Birds of Prey: Sensei and Student
  • JSA: Fair Play
  • Invincible Vol. 7: Three's Company
  • Every Girl is the End of the World for Me

Also, I'm still picking my way through the giant Locas: The Maggie and Hopey Stories and Marvel Visionaries: Jack Kirby tomes when time and mood strike.

Um, holy crap? I used to make fun of people who'd get so far behind in their comics reading, because honestly, how long does most of this stuff take to go through? But now, I'm starting to see how it can happen. I'm going to need the spare time Burgess Meredith had in that one Twilight Zone where he was the last man alive on the planet. Only without the whole armageddon thing, please and thank you. And though I can read without my glasses, I'd prefer to keep them intact, too.

I don't have much room to talk here, Bill. There are entire runs of books I haven't touched yet. About the only thing I kept up with any semblance of regularity was 52. I'm saving the last issue for tonight hoping to have some time to myself since there may some tears involved.
