Because I've decided forbidden planet are wankers, I've since ordered the last man from play.com. it was apparently released on the 25th of this month, OVER a month since the release date on the vertigo website (I'm aware dc.com is american and therefore the release date may vary, but they made me angry) besides, they have it in stock, and its £3 cheaper due to free postage and generally being a bit better.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love forbidden planet. But honestly, I think I'll avoid their online store. They don't tell you anything, and it looks like I have to actually phone up if I want to cancel my order.
On the plus side, with any luck I'll have issue 10 of the last man to read on the train on the way to visiting the beard, so he can then read it over the weekend :o)
Anyone else think the Alphabeat song (fancination?) sounds like a young Hanson? Just something I noticed at the gym the other day (Seems to be their song of choice atm)
ALthough listening to combichrist on the cross trainer very nearly killed me last week.
too much posting for one night, you people won't know whether you're coming or going at this rate.
..are complete cunts.
The FINAL and LAST EVER edition of Y:The last man, is due for release this month. In fact, i'm pretty sure it should have been released by now.
Anyways, forbidden planet told me it was june 26th. I pre-ordered it on june 14th, all ready and excited for my first real dose of comic geekdom in a while. Long story short, 2 weeks after the released date and my order status remaining on 'processing' (further investigation revealed a detailed explanation of 'processing' to mean 'your order is being processed'. no shit.) I phoned their London store, tottenham court road, or where ever the hell it is, only to be told that actually the website was wrong, it was being released 26th july, and that it had already been pushed forward to that date anyway.
so here we are, at the 29th of July, and I am distinctly lacking in comic. Forbidden Planet I curse you.
Gonna do me some research and then consider making an angry phone call again at lunch tomorrow.
On the plus side, I decided to postpone seeing the dark knight until friday, when i can go with the beard at the imax. it better be worth it. or i'll get you beardy. you and your blue panda car. AND, we're seeing meatloaf on saturday. yeah. Squee.
