COMICS: Hembeck Omnibus
Fantastic news from the world of comics -- coming next February: The Nearly Complete Essential Hembeck Archives Omnibus!
I'm a big fan of the awesomely swell and funny Mr. Hembeck, and the announcement of this gigantic collection -- over 900 pages, for a mere 25 bucks! -- is the most exciting thing to happen to comics since... uh... some unspecified time in the past when comics didn't suck so much.
And I'm not just saying that because he has occasionally visited and left comments at this blog, once even linking to me in an "episode" of the Fred Hembeck Show. I'm also saying it because he's as big a fan of The Who as I am! Oh, and his comics are wonderful. But mostly the other stuff.
I've almost completely quit reading comics, but this book is definitely worth my money, and yours, too. And congratulations on such a massive testament to your work, Fred!
