President's Day Haul

Who says you can't have a President's Day haul?

Midtown Comics is having a 40% off thing for President's Weekend/through the week. I still had that $50 gift certificate my sister got me for Christmas, so I decided to check out the trades. I went after Tai Chi on Saturday, but decided to go back and do more research until I knew what I really wanted. The result is this:

Kurt Busiek's Astro City Confession (still need the first trade before I can read this)
The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck
Tom Strong's Terrific Tales Book One
Alan Moore's America's Best Comics softcover
Heartbreak

All of these I've seen recommended at some place or oother, and I'm eager to read them (although I'm still going to get through Absolute Sandman volume 2 first), although I don't know how long that'll take. I'm just glad that I spent so little on what would normally have been over a hundred dollars.
