Man, I've really got to start updating this thing more frequently. Quite a few books to add since last time.

  • The Redeemer by Pat Mills & Wayne Reynolds. (Checked out of the library) Graphic novel about the Warhammer universe (at least, that's what I gather; I don't actually know enough about Warhammer to say that definitively).
  • The Streets of Ankh-Morpork by Stephen Briggs & Terry Pratchett. Another Discworld map. (Borrowed from Teena)
  • Crisis on Multiple Earths by Gardner Fox & Mike Sekowsky. This is a collection of the first 4 team-ups of the Justice League and the Justice Society. Comics from the '60's feel very different from the way they do now. (Library)
  • Isolation & Illusion: Collected Short Stories 1977-1997 by P. Craig Russell. Beautiful artwork.
  • The Interman by Jeff Parker. (Library)
  • Club 9 by Makoto Kobayashi. More manga. (Library)
  • Sweater Weather by Sara Varon. (Library)
  • A Tourist Guide to Lancre by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs, & Paul Kidby. (Teena)
  • The Discworld Mapp (sic) by Terry Pratchett & Stephen Briggs. (Teena)
  • The Avengers: Clear & Present Danger by Kurt Busiek & George Perez.
  • Potlatch: Comics to Benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund by various
  • Justice League Adventures, v.2: Friends & Foes by various. This is a collection of issues of the comic book based on the cartoon series on Cartoon Network.
  • Star Wars: Rites of Passage by John Ostrander & Jan Duursema. Why is it that the best Star Wars stories are not coming from LucasFilm? (That's a rhetorical question, by the way.) These comics & the 5-minute cartoon shorts that aired on Cartoon Network last November kick ass & are way better than anything Lucas has done for a long, long time.
  • Pride & Joy by Garth Ennis & John Higgins.
  • Dr. Radium Battles Phill, King of the Pill Bugs by Scott Saavedra. Silly stuff, but very fun.
  • Daredevil: Love's Labors Lost by Dennis O'Neil & David Mazzucchelli.
  • Shaman King, v.1 by Hiroyuki Takei.
  • Shaman King, v.2 by Hiroyuki Takei.
  • Art Adams' Creature Features
  • Summer Blonde (stories) by Adrian Tomine. (Library)
  • Lupin III, v.5 by Monkey Punch.

  • MST3K: Operation Double 007 An amazingly bad film starring Neil Connery, Sean's brother. (Teena)
  • The Kingdom Very creepy Danish mini-series about a haunted hospital. Written & directed by Lars von Trier (Dancer in the Dark). This series is being remade in English as Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital and will air in March. (Library)
  • The Zero Effect I'd never even heard of this movie before Teena told me I should see it. We watched it together. It's very good.
