    Long been my issue with Forbidden Planet. I like to go into a store and chat about comics to assistants who know what they are talking about. Seng described it as very super market.

    Still, can't fault the HC, got the #109 cover.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    Ah. It wasn't like that when I went there.

    Don't get me wrong, it has everything a comics fan could want. It probably does comics more good as being in such a prime location it pulls in passing punters just window shopping. I just like my LCS. Been going there for nearly 30 years, The owner is more of a friend and his manager Paul has shared many a rowdy evening with me. Also their knowledge of comics lends itself to hours of conversation.

    I understand what you mean; of the two in town, one of them feels small and homey, the other is very supermarket.
    I've only been to Forbidden Planet once, and that was many years ago. It didn't fit that description then, but I have no reason to believe it doesn't now.

    I have to say, the stores I've spent the most amount of money in over the years, be it comic, book or record, have been independant stores where I know the shopkeepers names and they know mine, they stop and chat and make you feel welcome.

    Yeah, I love that.
    (Oh, I get it from both my LCSs, by the way... just one feels too clean. If that makes sense.)

    I just picked this up from the Toronto library, will read it after I'm done with Swamp Thing.

    Wait a minute...what are you doing with Swamp Thing?!? I hope you aren't making him do mundane chores around your house...

    Looks like this is getting a softcover reprint later in the year:

    That'd be the second softcover, then. All the Marvel Premiere Classics seemed to have softcover versions, didn't they?

    It's the first one, they've just taken a while to get round to it!

    I might be getting confused between the first softcover and the other hardcover. They definitely all had two hardcover editions!

    Yeah, the Standard and the Direct Market variant were both HC's.
