    Re: Me getting the issue. Normally, due to distance & such, I receive comics slightly after you guys get 'em 'Stateside. Sometimes, I'm very lucky and I get them a mite early (this has happened a few times recently, and it's been great!). I've noticed that there is seldom more than a short gap either way, so don't sweat it - it's not some kinda mistake / conspiracy / I'm-Gunna-Find-Tommy-And-KILL-Him-Goddamit! scenario.

    Re: Me doing reviews. I've made a point of not doing this ( although I did once write a review of a member here on the boards... ). The reason(s) being, I tend to buy my comics because I like the art and the story - I don't tend to make purchases on the basis of reviews of titles I've not got yet, as I not only like to make up my own mind, but I love the feeling of discovering something new all by myself and I generally wish the same for others who would read the title as well. Hell, the same goes for movies, books, music, etc. My own recommendations to people tend to be as simple as "Holy shit man - you GOTTA check this out! I reckon you'd like it!" (and I tend to listen to this kinda recommendation from friends too!). Although I've seen some excellent reviews on this title and on many others (the depth of people's knowledge of the 'Ranger here is something which never fails to astound me - I kid you not), too many reviews I've seen over the years on every form of entertainment tend to be polarised between variations on "This is great" and "OMG!!TEHSUXXORZ!!111!!", and I haven't wanted to add to this...

          Synopsis defined

          American Heritage® Dictionary: synopsis -NOUN: A brief outline or general view, as of a subject or written work; an abstract or a summary.

          in other words, spoilers! what happens?!!!

          oh, well, never mind. we'll just have to writhe in agony of waiting for the next two weeks.....
          by the way, what time is it in Oz, anyway? shouldn't you be in bed?

            OK, when is #6 going to hit the stores? When I go on the official Diamond Shipping List, it's not on the list for June 6. I just saw a list elsewhere that has Lone Ranger #6 listed for June 6. I'm more inclined to believe the official list, but I know things sometime change after that one gets published. Will it be out June 6? Or do we have to wait until June 13? Or beyond? It's torture!!! I must know!!!

              My local comic shop guy told me the lists don't mean squat. He said he can't depend on the lists to know when things are coming.

                That's in reference to comics not shipping when they are supposed to and being delayed.

                I cannot remember one time in the last 3 years where a comic made it to my local store without first being on the list or being listed as "Delayed - Pending".
