This time of year everyone is tossing out lists of the best of 2007 (like the True West list that picked Desperadoes: Buffalo Dreams as the Best Western Comic Book of the year).
Online pop culture journal Scoop bypassed Desperadoes: Buffalo Dreams #1, but just barely, giving it an honorable mention. In their words:
"The revitalized version of a 1980s favorite in the form of Suicide Squad #1, the latest installment of a gothic western, Desperadoes: Buffalo Dreams #1, the long overdue return of another 1980s favorite, Nexus #99, the even-longer-in-the-making return of some 1950s icons, Agents of Atlas #6, and the twenty-fifth anniversary a destructive force of nature, Groo 25th Anniversary Special, all receive honorary mentions since they just missed the final cut..."
The San Diego Union-Tribune showed better judgment, however, by including Mysterious Galaxy in their list of San Diego's best independent bookstores. So in their words:
"The genre bookstore in these parts. Mysterious Galaxy melds mystery and science fiction/fantasy into a smooth, high-energy environment that boasts serious coverage of both genres, a knowledgeable staff, book discussions and a steady and impressive parade of top-of-the-line authors showing up to read, talk and sign. In the coming weeks, just for example: Susan Arnot Smith, Todd McCaffrey, C.J. Box and T. Jefferson Parker."
