As my wonderful work colleagues clubbed together to get me a waterstones gift card, I figured the very least I could do would be to SPEND IT IMMEDIATELY.

So wandered in at lunchtime, and was singularly uninspired.

Then I hit on the bright idea of expanding my fledgling graphic novel collection.
My basket currently contains:

The Rainbow Orchid: Adventures of Julius Chancer v. 1
Serenity: Better Days v. 2
Serenity: Shepherd's Tale
Hellboy: Wake the Devil v. 2

I'm torn between trying shiny new things and expanding my Firefly stuff. Tempted by the Firefly Companion (vols 1 & 2), as I have the Firefly: Still Flying book, and it'd complete the set.

Any other suggestions? I've got £30 to play with. And no, 'save it until you need it' isn't a viable option. :-)

How about some Judge Dredd ? The Complete Case Files collections that are out now are excellent. I've got four or five of those, plus any number of Judge Dredd monthly magazine tucked away. Look out for the Judge Child Quest, The Cursed Earth and the Apocalypse War. Well-written and generally well-illustrated stuff.
