I turned 25 a couple of days ago and I feel just as much as a kid as I always have.

Except I seem to showing signs of age as I completely forgot that I had a birthday coming up and went to Toycon because I had finally gotten my Freakangels tank top and I wanted to break it in in style (and a purple wig + goggles)

Going to Toycon right before your birthday is a very bad idea. I ended up overspending, justifying all my purchases as birthday presents to myself. There goes my celebration dinner money, people.


X-Force #1 (which we got for free!), Sandman #50 Distant Mirrors: Ramadan, Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall Harcover; OSM goggles.

Comics > Food. Yep, glad to know at 25 , I still got my priorities straight.

FreakAngels

I’ve always been ashamed of the fact that despite my love for them, I’ve never been able to go out and actually look for new, awesome comics. The comics I read are usually recommendations from friends, which usually means that they’ve already been concluded and compiled into convenient little trade paperbacks and can be read at one’s own pace.

Now, a friend recently sent me a link to FreakAngels — it’s a free online comic by Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield and it’s still (wait for it) ongoing.  FreakAngels has now officially popped my waiting-not-so-patiently-for-the-next-issue cherry and it’s driving me nuts haha. Especially since each episode is just about 6 pages long.

Post-apocalyptic, steampunk goodness with sibling-like love-hate relationships and telepathic-telekinetic-psychic mumbo-jumbo that’ll put Jean Grey to shame. Another win for Mister Ellis, and much love to Mister Duffield because I adore his art.
