I used my collection of graphic novels and comics to inspire myself and learn, it was an invaluable tool, but now it's gone. All of my graphic novels and comic books have been completely ruined by hurricane Katrina's floodwaters and the mold that crept in after the water receded. At least most of the graphic novels are replaceable, although my comic book collection was too extensive to ever completely replace; Still, I can buy graphic novels of the series that were really important to me, although it just won't be the same because the novels just don't have that unique comic book smell.

The list behind the cut is roughly alphabetized and only contains the graphic novels I lost, my collection of comics was too extensive to list. It's only things, I know, but for me it still reads like the obituaries.

My parents drove from Memphis to Metairie today to assess the damage to their houses. It turns out that both houses took in about a foot of water, so most of their furniture is completely ruined and all of their electronics will probably need to be replaced. The water damage at my house is probably much worse and though I'm disappointed that my entire comic book collections and many of my art supplies are ruined, I'm just too grateful that all my loved ones are safe to be really upset about it; We'll be fine without furniture, TV, or computers for as long as it takes for us to replace those things because we've got what really matters.

[livejournal.com profile] the_ugly_knight  was also supposed to go into Metairie to see what he could salvage, so I'm especially interested in hearing back from him.

I haven't heard from [livejournal.com profile] samothtiger , his sister [livejournal.com profile] ladybyng , or his brother Ego* for several days, which concerns me. I know they're safe, but I'd just like to get an update on them, so if any of you read this, let me just say: "You never call! You never write!" But, seriously, e-mail me or something!
