  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Well, they came out in comic shops, but I guess that doesn't help you. If you've got a regular bookstore (or supermarket) somewhere nearby, they should have the digest, anyway.

Wasn't there a Sabrina one-shot or miniseries announced around two years ago and then cancelled? Is this a resurrection of that?

Fast Eddie's nervous now, trying to rally the troops, so they can survive bankruptcy. I doubt they will, though. In 2005, the bankruptcy laws were changed to eliminate abuses. Basically, retailers would become "ghost tenants", tying up valuable property while not using it. They would spend 1-2 years trying to negotiate. Mall owners complained to Congress, hence the revisions to the laws. Now, companies in bankruptcy have only 7 months to work stuff out. The malls wanna get the space back, because Sears has paid one of the lowest rents, because most of the contracts were signed 20+ years ago. Basically, the malls wanna upgrade the spaces and jack up the rent.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (saw it through downloads, watching it on DVD now)


One of my all-time favorites, which I'm planning on watching again as soon as I can find the time. I was only a so-so fan of Mamoru Oshii's 1990s film version, but really loved Kenji Kamiyama's SAC television series. For some reason the 2nd season ("2nd Gig") is out-of-print on DVD, and really expensive if you can find the complete collection on DVD (plus you have to avoid the Anchor Bay release, which according to all reviews, looks terrible). Hoping somebody will rectify that situation soon. Not sure why, as the first season is easily get-able at a reasonable price.

Thanks for letting me know. I just finished season 1 of SAC yesterday. I was thinking of ordering 2nd Gig but not if they're that expensive. I guess I'll rewatch the live-action movie (saw it in theaters, haven't watched the Blu-ray yet) and order The Individual Eleven (the compilation movie of 2nd Gig), Solid State Society, the original film, and the sequel on Blu-ray (the Blu-ray of Innocence supposedly contains at least one of the two English dubs made with the SAC cast, probably the American dub).
Then, after that, I'll get the new OVAs or TV specials or whatever they are (I already have The New Movie, which takes place after all of those).
