ah, sweet progress

A year or two ago I came to a horrible realisation: the stuff I was buying on eBay was pretty much the crap I had coveted as a fifteen year old and couldn't afford, but now had the disposable income to buy. Well, I've made progress. I'm now buying the stuff I coveted as a seventeen year old and couldn't afford.

At one level, I'm fine with this, as I'm pretty sure I was a clever, more creative, and better adjusted individual at seventeen than I am now. Scary, huh?

Anyhow, the difference is exemplified by this: instead of buying Archie Goodwin and Howard Chaykin's Marvel graphic novel THE SCORPIO CONNECTION, I'm now buying Fantagraphic's english translations of Sampayo and Munoz's ALECK SINNER stories.

At this rate, I may actually be able to beat off any accusations of arrested development in about five years! Cheers!

I've also started trying to get issues of Sinner. Any idea how many ended getting published?
I have the first five and I've heard it went six issues, but haven't been able to confirm this or find much info.
