- Hammer of the Gods: Mortal Enemy by Michael Avon Oeming and Mark Obie Wheatley.
- Miss: Better Living through Crime by Philippe Therault, Marc Riou, and Mark Vigouroux. French crime comics set in Manhattan in the 20's.
- The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings by various. I actually started this anthology when it came out, back in October. But it's taken me until now to finish the last couple of things in it.
- Pop Gun War by Farel Dalrymple.
- Crayon Shinchan by Yoshito Usui. Manga about a bratty 5-year-old.
- Heavy Liquid by Paul Pope. I liked this quite a bit. More than I have Pope's other works, but still not enough to buy it. The library is my friend.
- This morning I started Sandman Presents: Taller Tales by Bill Willingham and a variety of artists. This is a collection of stories spun off of characters Neil Gaiman created. I have some problems with some of the Sandman spin-offs; too serious, too self-important, & too gothy. That's not a problem here.
I've been watching a few DVDs
- Down from the Mountain. A concert film of the music that was featured in O Brother, Where Art Thou?
- My Fair Lady. I think this is the first Audrey Hepburn movie I've ever seen. Throughout the movie I was struck by how much Rex Harrison's Henry Higgins reminded me of some of the characters that Michael McKean plays (although I couldn't name a specific one; certainly not David St. Hubbins).
- Repo Man> (Now there's an odd juxtaposition of movies.)
- And last Friday night, Teena & I went to see Love Actually. It was a great movie, and it's not just the company I had that's making me say that. Lots of characters, and lots of stories, but you can keep them all straight. Some excellent performances, especially by Emma Thompson. Highly recommended.
