In the city of Mitakihara, a schoolgirl named Madoka Kaname and her friend Sayaka Miki are approached by an adorable familiar named Kyubey, who offers to grant each of them one wish. A mysterious third girl named Homura Akemi has already made this deal, and tries to prevent Madoka from accepting it. Kyubey encourages Madoka by telling her she will become the most powerful magical girl. Madoka hesitates, seeing her friends suffer from having to use their supernatural powers to fight “witches”, creatures responsible for murders and suicides. The most powerful known witch is called Walpurgisnacht.

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Since moving into Stately Spoiler Manor, the the Nerd Room of Doom has accumulated “stuff” to the point where I can’t even open the door any more.  Statues, action figures, posters, and props line the shelves and spill onto the table tops to create a collection that looks like the comic book industry puked all over the place.  When it comes time to clean up the room (Young Zach has something to do this summer), we will have to make a choice – Action Figures or Statues?

Which do you prefer more - Action Figures or Statues?

Discussion:
Criminal: Coward
The series’ story arcs are self-contained and focus on different characters, but these central characters inhabit the same world, grew up in fictional Center City, frequent the same bar, and share a common history of two generations of crime. With his partner Ivan, Tommy Patterson ran the city’s most proficient crew of pickpockets and taught the trade to his eight-year-old son, Leo. When Tommy was arrested and imprisoned for the murder of Teeg Lawless, Ivan took care of Leo and explained to him how following certain rules can keep a criminal “out in the world,” out of both prison and the morgue.

    Yes! I’ve been waiting for you to review some Criminal for quite a while. I really enjoyed all of them, in particular Bad Night. The whole Frank Kafka comic strip really gets me, especially Officer Wrong. It’s just so awesome. So, so awesome. This is my inner Ed Brubaker fanboy gushing.

    I like the idea that you get a share of Amazon purchases done via your site. Does this also work with foreign customers? I mean, if I (in Germany) click on one of your Amazon ads, then click through to amazon.de and buy something there, do you still get a share of that?
