Blast from the past

I finally got around to digging out some of my comic boxes tonight since I have plans to give away so much of my stuff.  (I hope!)  I really wanted to find my first two Ultimate Spider-Man trades.  Can’t give away the rest of the series if there’s no beginning to it!  So after hauling out 6 incredibly heavy boxes (the last three are staying where they are, thank you!) I still have no idea where they are.   I will bet you all money that I find them the day after I rebuy them and mail them off.  Damn.  At least I found most of the comics.  sigh.

I did find some of my old Bone books I was going to pass on to the nephew, some random Ultimate X-Men trades (and I’m now happy that I resisted the temptation to buy what I apparently forgot I owned) and this:

That’s right!  Issue one of Mixx Zine, home of the original English Sailor Moon manga!  Actually, I found the first three issues and I hope the rest of them are in the other boxes.  In flipping through the first one, I have to say they’re not holding up very well.  Lots of ink being transferred to other pages.  :(  Of course, I doubt they were meant to last this long anyway.  (I just checked the date – August 1997!  Holy crow!)

Ahh… the fateful first meeting.  And ten years later I still don’t like the coloured paper or the stupid names…  :)

    She doesn’t have any eyes at all! Is that what you meant? I’m drawing a blank on Charlie Brown eyes…
