The magic of the Diamond Preview book.
A show of weakness and a paycheck's blown
Just moments after taking just a look.
I don't go for the manga or the toys,
The superhero stuff still leaves me cold
(Except for Astro City), but the joys
Of finding new and stranger stuff (and old
And much-loved favorites, collected in
More durable editions) lures me to
These pages ev'ry month. To my chagrin
I never have, as yet, gone paging through
This grimoire without bumping up my subs.
In boxes? Hell, my comics come in tubs!
