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

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.
I did enjoy this, and would have been fairly impressive in 1979.
A new card for an old deck.
Elves+Elementals with a dash of Wurms.
Wouldn’t mind a foil of this one.
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.
Went to see Frank Quitely at the Borders Book Festival today and got him to sign my All-Star Superman book.

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.

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.

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.
Last card, in the last pack in my half of the booster box. Now in shiny.
Donated the non-shiny to a good cause.
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.
Pre-ordered my booster box, but pretty sure I won’t get the Buy-a-Box promo…
I can’t bring myself to buy The Last Jedi on Blu-Rey as part of my protest to Disney for the errors in judgement made.
Nice print from Dan Mumford of the wasted Snoke.
Ash vs Evil Dead is all over after three series.
Be nice if they put out a nice Blu-Ray box set when the season ends.
Until they make Ash vs Evil Dead Halloween Spooktacular.
On to issue 13 of Matt Kindt’s X-O Manowar and the quality still hasn’t dropped on this series.
Let’s see if this survives the DMG Entertainment purchase…
Well, mine and several hundred thousand other Wizard Account Holders.
Currently building my collection of Burn and Counter spells.
My second Terese Nielsen Sheep card.
Wish I’d coughed up for a foil Nyx-Fleece Ram now.
It also rivals my Polymorphist’s Jest foil for awesome 1 damage to target/all creatures.
