Vitalogy, Lex Luthor & A Pocket Full Of Kryptonite
The title of this post pretty much sums up my shopping experience on Saturday with Kimmy and her mom. We shopped, ate, then shopped again before returning Kimmy's mom to the West Side. After leaving the West Side, Kimmy and I went shopping in more us-friendly stores. The first stop on this second wind was CD Warehouse. Upon entering the store I had no clue what I was in the mood to buy. After looking up and down the rows numerous times the CD's started to jump out at me. The first one was Pearl Jam: Vitalogy for the very low price of $1.99. Then all of a sudden a second CD came after me and this one was Spin Doctors: Pocket Full of Kryptonite for again the low price of $1.99. What made my day was that when we got home I found out that the Spin Doctor's CD insert was signed by the band.
After CD Warehouse we made the trip over to Barnes & Noble just to browse and enjoy being around books. So, I did my usual Sci-Fi search and then made my way to the comic books, oops excuse me the "graphic novels". You know, I've never liked calling them graphic novels, because they're not. They are just a series of comic books collected into one book. Anyway, back to my search. I've had a spark rekindled with the Superman series since watching Smallville, so my search started there. The last time I had a few dollars I purchased The Death Of Superman, but this time I wanted something different. That's when I noticed Lex Luthor Man Of Steel, neat title isn't it? Upon reading what it was about I was hooked and needless to say purchased it with the quickness.
Let me end by trying to intrigue you all by telling you that this comic book reveals why Lex chooses to be a thorn in Superman's side and how Lex intends to save humanity from an untrusted alien being.
