AMAZE INK (SLAVE LABOR)
OCT052730E Little Scrowlie #12 24pg $2.95
by Todd Meister & Jennifer Feinberg
'Astral projecting cats! What more need be said? Scrowlie, so desparate to leave the suburbs that she'll try anything, exits her body to search for her city-dwelling friends. All the while, the Goatbusters' Potluck and Fiery Inferno of Death trundles its way to a climax everyone could have predicted if they'd just paid attention to the event's name.'
ARCHIE COMIC PUBLICATIONS
OCT052786E Sonic the Hedgehog #157 32pg, color $2.25
by Ken Penders & Ron Lim
'"System Shutdown": Coinciding with the eagerly awaited Shadow the Hedgehog video game from Sega, it's the eagerly awaited return of Sonic's dark counterpart, Shadow!' My life is now complete.
COMIC LIBRARY INTERNATIONAL
OCT052893F Humpty Dumpty Chronicles one-shot 48pg $5.95
by Mitchell Perkins & Alison Williams
'Travel only along the known trails! Don't wander from the winding path and, above all else, never travel alone at night through the ancient forest! So begins the epic adventure of Peter Wheatley and the denizens of Hidden Hedge, led by Yuri, leader of the Snow Mice. Follow the animals and sprites of this magical, yet all too deadly, realm as they contend with a legacy of Gwendolyn, the spirit of a Roman Centurion's long lost daughter and the legend of the greatest action hero of them all, Humpty Dumpty.' Doesn't seem like a good career choice for the Humpty Dumpty I know.
Wild #18 - this was also SEP053028. I wonder why Diamond listed it again? Particularly since, according to Edd Vick's 14 Sep note, #15 was to be the last?
Giant Shanda Annual #10 - that's Giant Shanda *Animal*. One must respect the tradition of bad puns in furry names.>>
Always carry a grapefruit, Treesong
