In this economic time, it's obvious that people have to start cutting back, leaving only bare essentials and maybe a small personal joy every now and then.
I've been doing that lately myself. My small personal joy is in the form of Pinkerton vol. 1.
I've been reading Pinkerton for a while. It's a good strip. Wish it gets more exposure, hence this post. The comic book is only $3.99 (plus shipping). You have to be completely homeless or a raging cheapskate to not be swayed by THAT deal!
