Protection and antidote - I can't have enough when it comes to that individual.

Too many toxic people in the world.

Well, that's quite a genre: black comedy splatter film.

I actually like those, especially when it's also a musical. :lol:

I did my best in writing a book review and proofread it multiple times...
Today I got the feedback from the editor and got really low score...
I'm a bit discouraged.

The review has good potential, but I did notice a couple of guidelines issues. I'd imagine the editor did give you specific pointers in the feedback, though? If you still don't understand anything, I'd be happy to help. Welcome to the forum!

A comic book store that is bound and determined to ruin me and my wanting to read comics.


Set up a pull list (anyone familiar with comics knows what that is, but it's a basically a hold list for new releases that you pick up periodically), and they're not setting my comics back.
Of four that they should've had, they had one, and this is not the only issue I've had (started the pull list last month, one problem is forgivable in that time frame, but several? Just, no.).
This may have cost me ever getting some of my series.


Hoping to switch to a different store, and really hoping for a better experience. Otherwise, this may be the end of my very short foray into comic book geekdom.

The cricket score today. Beaten by the Aussies.
I'm not a bad loser though, fair play to them. At this moment they are just better than us, no doubt we'll come good again. Sometimes it can be demoralising supporting English cricket but I still love it.
