    Ok, pictures of the books. Finally got around to uploading them.

    Pretty cool books. I've read through Saga now and loved it. Looking forward to reading more of the series but the schedule for it looks like it comes out every other month.

    Manhattan Projects has been great too. I picked up the first issue a while back but never followed up with the rest of the series. Looks like it's going to be going in some interesting directions.

    Just got a Secret Sandman e-mail!

    I'm a bit too tired to go through the details right now, but when I have a bit more time I'll do so. However, at a glance it does seem like there's a fine selection of stuff from off the beaten path, most of which I never would've thought of buying for myself. I look forward to exploring the riches of that haul later on.

    I'll keep note of that if we ever cross Secret Santa crosshairs. I minored in graphic design/art and really always was intrigued so I just kept asking for books the past few Christmases when people didn't know what to get me. My family loves that I keep my Amazon wish list up to date.

    @Delduwath - so far Doomwar has been stellar. Going to try to read the smaller books first but I'm still very grateful for the books. My girlfriend was a little jealous and figured she would up her gift ante this year because of you.

    Meaning that she's going to give more gifts? In that case, I claim 50% of the credit on any gift she gives on top of what she was already going to get you.

    If you meant that she WANTS more gifts, I have nothing to do with that and stop looking at me accusingly.

    Since Robos hasn't mentioned it yet (probably because he's only gotten a chance to read a couple), but I got him all of the Monkeybrain catalog except for Red Light Properties (I haven't read it, and it left room in case I wanted to get him something else).

    Finally, got paid on Friday so I've just put together an order. Hopefully, my Sandman likes them.

  • GrifterGrifter BermudaModerator mod
    Looks like everything will get there before Xmas but one item is shipping separately for some reason.

  • TexiKenTexiKen Elite Registered User regular
    I sent my gift out today, it should hopefully arrive by the end of the week depending on how lazy the post office is right now, if they've reached "screw it" mode yet for the holidays.

  • R0land1188R0land1188 Registered User regular
    So I am sitting here in my office when I get an Amazon shipment, I just placed an order yesterday and its not unheard of so I opened it up and wow!

    First let me say that I was having a bad week until this showed up.

    Volume 1 of Morning Glories
    Casanova Luxuria

    and

    The Immortal Iron Fist, which I was going to buy for myself today but I guess I don't have to!

    Thanks! I only have your real name so please come forward!

    Okay so I reverse stalked my santee and @Grifter was it you? I can't wait to jump into them this weekend!

    You have one more coming. Unfortunately, that one has the card on it that would've told you who it's from.

    @R0land1188 The last book has shipped and you should be receiving it soon. Delivery estimate is Monday.

    Thanks a bunch Grifter!

    I started reading Morning Glories last night and it is pretty cool.

    Lo! I returned home to HQ today after a prolonged battle with Kalkulon, the Intergalaktik Kalkulator, to find an unassuming box nestled by the door. What could it be?! Was it a bomb, left there by the Bombtenders of Barnacle Bay? A parcel of malevolent sentient toy soldiers, courtesy of Mint Condition? Perhaps a clue to Perplexor's next crime spree?

    No! It was none of these things! In fact, it was a gift package from one Texiford Hieronymus Kensington, better known to us as TexiKen! Inside the modest box was a very nice note from TexiKen, and a completely ridiculous bounty. Seriously, just look at this shit:
    DSC03724_zpsf750d3ad.jpg

    Let's take a closer look!
    DSC03725_zps05fa2f56.jpg

    Jim Henson's Tale of Sand, which I've seen in stores a bunch of times, and was pretty curious about.
    DSC03731_zps3ad0738f.jpg

    High Roads, which I've never heard of, but looks really cool. Also, I really like Yu's art, so.
    DSC03730_zpsb8efc351.jpg

    Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., which just looks fun. I don't know much about it, but just going off the cover alone, I think I'm going to have fun reading it.
    DSC03729_zps7204d04b.jpg

    Ka-Zar, which I also don't really know much about. It looks good, though, and I haven't known Mark Waid to steer me wrong before.
    DSC03728_zps0dc9395d.jpg

    New Invaders! Which I've been looking for for a long time! I'm pretty excited about this one - I've heard overwhelmingly positive things about it, and all the scans I've seen of it look great.
    DSC03727_zps9eeb48c3.jpg

    The first two trades of Y: The Last Man, which I of course have been hearing about since forever, and have been meaning to read for as long. Somehow, I just never got around to it. From what I've heard of it, I don't think there's any way I could possible dislike it.
    DSC03726_zpscbf2ba31.jpg

    Conan: The Frost-Giant's Daughter, in response to my call for Conan-comics! Awesome, of course.

    Man, I am super-excited about all these great books! Thanks, TexiKen, you basically hit it out of the park: there's some stuff that I've wanted to read but either didn't know where to start or haven't been able to find, there's some stuff that I've been meaning to read but never got around to, and there's some stuff that I never would have thought to pick up myself, but that looks like it's directly up my alley. Thanks, dude! This is an awesome present! :^::^::^:

    Was that the last gift? Ok......

    This whole thing was great! I got trades that I'm super excited to get into (Kingdom Come, Criminal by Brubaker, and Atomic Robo)!! Thank you Robos a Go Go. :mrgreen:

    I would also like to thank Secret Sandman (who ever you are :P ) for setting this up.

    From all the posts I can safely say this was a success. Maybe we should do something for hanukkah? (j.k.)

  • R0land1188R0land1188 Registered User regular
    I just wanted to say thanks @grifter I got the other item in today!

    Also this was my first secret santa thing ever and it was a lot of fun, I got a bunch of stuff I had no idea about (I have read Casanova 3 times now and it's still crazy!)

    Thanks to everyone for participating.

    Glad that you're enjoying those books. A couple of them are ones that I've been wanting to read for a while. Since you didn't seem to have much in your collection I figured everything was a safe bet to send to you. The Invisibles is supposed to be some awesome crazy Morrison shit.

    I just sent a message to grim123's Secret Sandman to see what's up, but I notice that he hasn't posted on the forums at all for about a month. In fact, even though HIS Secret Sandman sent out a gift, grim123's Secret Sandman never posted to say that he got it. So, I'm not really sure what's going on. I'm going to keep an eye on this situation, and if no new info appears in the next week or so, I'll initiate Emergency Festivitation Giftering Mode.

    Just checked Amazon.com and the order I placed has been delayed until February for some reason. I apologize for the delay and will be getting a different order placed later this afternoon/early tomorrow when I get back home.

    Be on that lookout.

    Sandman: Did things get resolved, or are we going to have to kill a silly goose?

  • Secret SandmanSecret Sandman Registered User
    For now, things are on-track with grim123's present. However, in the process of my hard-hitting investigation, I found out that RedDelicious hasn't received a present, either. I sent out an inquiry about that, but haven't gotten a response yet.

    Like the Eye of Sauron, I remain ever-vigilant. Unless two small dudes overcome challenge after challenge and move inexorably closer to the borders of my realm; I don't even look at those guys, they're never a problem.

    Amazon split the order in to two parts. You'll be getting the first part ~Monday and the second part later on in the week.

    I know! I found that odd too. I sent this mystery-man a message, but still no response. Also, it seems he hasn't posted anything on the forums since mid-December, so I don't know what's up. A few more days, I guess, and then I'll Have To Do Something About It(tm).

    By which I mean, send emergency gifts.

    Following in the footsteps of Batman and Detective Chimp, clearly.
