Hey, Lookie!

I got impatient for Amazon to index my Wish List, so I decided to cheat a little.

I'd be lying if I said that I just wanted people to see how ultimately refined my tastes are, and just say it out loud my true intentions: I Want Presents for My Birthday.

Ha ha. There. I've said it. It's November the 6th this year, mind you.

Anyway, here's the link. I'm putting it at the Horrible NASCAR-like affiliation list, and I'll probably whine a bit just before my birthday.

Tariq Kamal's Wish List @ Amazon.com

Anyway, a few highlights:

  • Usagi Yojimbo Book 3: The Wanderer's Road — I love Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo. Funny, usually I mock furries, but a couple of my favourite artists draw anthromorphic animals. One of them is Stan Sakai; the other is Dave Kelley, who drew Living In Greytown. Anyway. I've got all of Stan's early Usagi books save this one: the one where Jei, Usagi's insane archnemesis, makes his first appearance. Which is a shame.
  • Paranoia XP — The first Paranoia RPG was published by West End Games (which publishes boring shit like TORG now, I think). Whatever. This new game is like the old one, except that it's updated for the millenium. And it's published by Mongoose Publishing. There are two things that make Paranoia special. One, is that unlike other RPGs, Paranoia encourages you to be a back-stabbing bastard. Secondly, it's funny as hell.
  • Y: The Last Man (Book 2, 3, 4)— Imagine, in the near future, that every male mammal on this planet died suddenly. Every one, save for two males: Yorick Brown, an unemployed escape artist, and his pet monkey. Yes, it's perfectly serious stuff. Honestly. I've got Book 1. It's perfectly serious, gripping stuff. Even when Yorick's sister, Hero, joins the Amazons and burns off her right breast.
  • B.P.R.D: The Soul of Venice and Other Stories — Forget the damn movie, Hellboy the comic is so much better. I've got the first book in this series, and Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien are much more rounded and interesting characters than they are in the movie.

That's it. I'm such a whore ^^

Okay, seriously. I don't really mind if no-one gets this for me, but you know, there might be, just might be, people out there who might want to. And, really, I had two options: either drop hints to people (and risk people getting the wrong message or me forgetting), or be explicit.

Guess which route I'm taking.

You're too kind. Much too kind. Me and my siblings (who love my comic books, it's my parents who disapprove) thank you.
