Clearing Out – Vertigo and Indies 
23rd-May-2013 09:22 am

Demon Knights and Supergirl are my biggest piles yet to be claimed. The former in particular surprises me. Paul Cornell! Vandal Savage! Questing for the right for princesses to marry each other!

So the first on this list is technically DC, but it’s not DCU and that’s how I roll:

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre: Written by Darwyn Cooke, drawn by the amazing Amanda Conner.  An origin story for Laurie Jupiter, about growing up with an ex-superhero for a Mom and breaking out on your own. Obviously relevant to me, as a Black Canary fan. [Deuce]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the end of Season 8, the beginning of Season 9. Also Angel and Faith, which is a season 9 spin off.

Cinderella: Fables are Forever A Fables-universe spy story starring Cinderella and… well, that would be a spoiler.

The Guild – One shot ‘origins’ for the characters of Felicia Day’s web series.

House of Mystery – the last few arcs of Matt Sturges’ fantasy romp. Lots of fun, and definitely a title I miss.

Stumptown: The Case of the Baby in the Velvet Case  – The second arc of Greg Rucka’s PI series, so-starring Mim Bracca from Fistful of Rain. Actually, what the hell, I’ll throw in Fistful of Rain in paperback if you want. This is an amazing four-issue story, and contains the best car chase sequence in  comics that I’ve ever seen.

Saucer Country: Paul Cornell’s 14 issue story about an alien abductee (also an hispanic woman) running for president. Conspiracies! Aliens! Politics! This is also great.

I am afraid to claim any more because I have so many already and I don't want you to collapse under the weight of my pile as you take it to the post office, BUT if you have no takers and are desperate to get rid of them, I'll take Demon Knights, Supergirl, and both Stumptown arcs. Feel free to cut me off if it's getting too ridiculous, though!

It's getting kind of ridiculous already. Is there anything you definitely don't want to give up? I'm just afraid they won't take it!

I do have the TPB of World's Finest, so I don't need the issues that are covered in that--definitely want the Huntress mini and if there are World's Finest issues that take place after the issues in the TPB. I also really want the Wonder Woman stuff and Batman. Those are the only really vital things. The rest would be great if it's not too heavy/out of control, but Helena, Wonder Woman, and Batman are my priorities. Thank you!!!
