Showering Cowboy

It’s a sad day when it’s easier and cheaper to buy the Start Trek hardcover, than it is to buy the only issue I’m missing of the original series (No 7).

Still tweaking my Spirits deck.

Need to dig the album out.

Give yourself a another basic shiny XXXVIIII

Best Land in the set, and looking good in my spirit deck.

Give yourself a common shiny XXXVIII

Lots of nice art in Core 2019, particularly from Jesper.

Ordered myself a shiny XXXVII

Also ordered myself a shiny Departed Deckhand to go with it.

Got given yourself a shiny XXXVI

Nicer than Illusory Gains (non shiny).

What’s better than a Frank Cho picture?
A picture by Frank Cho and Gerhard.

Nice.

Give yourself a shiny elf XXXV

One of the horns (?) doesn’t look quite right.
Nice card though.

Bathomme: Dank Prince Charmling

Batman: The Dark Prince Charming
There was a fair gap between book one and book two, but it wasn’t until I had both that I took the shrink warp off either of them.
European comics can often be style over substance, so I had some concerns, especially not being aware of Enrico Marini before.

I enjoyed it, regardless of other reviews. In the review linked, they have a few complaints, including the low page count. Aren’t most European comics like this? At least the ones I have (comics like Le Monde d’Edena that took most of a lifetime not withstanding).
It could simply be that I’m a bit old fashioned. I didn’t find anything outstandingly sexist in it.

The Swords of Heaving, Flowers off Hell

Forgot I was getting this.
Seems like a strange paper choice for the painted art, but suspect it might not benefit from a glossy finish.
I hope it’s good.

EREKOSĂ‹?

Update:
I did enjoy this, and would have been fairly impressive in 1979.

Give yourself a non-shiny XXXIV

A new card for an old deck.
Elves+Elementals with a dash of Wurms.

Wouldn’t mind a foil of this one.

Give yourself a basic shiny XXXIII

One of the nicest lands I’ve seen, and even more special in shiny.
Might try and get all the Mark Poole Dominaria lands in foil.

Frank Quiltey

Went to see Frank Quitely at the Borders Book Festival today and got him to sign my All-Star Superman book.
Nice.

Two heads are better than one

After a slight enjoyment delay due to faulty lights in the head, Sideshow sent me a new one. Which appears to be working.
For the moment.

Compared this to my Hot Toys Mk3 and it does seem more advanced (although they need to do something about the lights/switches). It makes my Mk3 look like a Hasbro Black Series.
And it’s also taller than the Mk3, so may look a little off side by side.

Damned nice though. Even if my photography does it no favours.

So close I can smell it…

And literally touch it.

Batmanbile

Got my Revo 1989 Batmobile.
It’s quite nice, but I’m not convinced the quality is high enough to justify the price (and import duty).

You do get various items such as the machine guns (which never struck me as being particularly Batman) and grapple hooks.

Give yourself a Cearley XXXII

An overly familiar shiny XXXI

Dominaria is a bit light on Kev Walker.
Let’s hope they’re saving him for another set.

Saw a photo of this in shiny and will look good in my fungal elf Brawl deck.

Hope the film looks better than this.

Give yourself a post-release now-shiny XXIX

Last card, in the last pack in my half of the booster box. Now in shiny.
Donated the non-shiny to a good cause.

Give yourself a pre-release non-shiny XXVIII

Busting open my pre-release boosters, I was disappointed to find Mox Amber taking up a Mythic slot. It may well be worth money, but was no help.
It’ll sit next to my unused Chrome Mox.
