A Few More Books
We had a couple friends over for dinner last night, so I didn't get a chance to update yesterday. Despite still spending a lot of time playing Twilight Princess, I did manage to get more books read this week than last.

  1. Narbonic, vol. 4 by Shaenon Garrity. Another great collection of this fantastic web comic about mad science.
  2. Showcase Presents: Justice League of America, vol. 2 by Gardner Fox & Mike Sekowsky. More Silver Age weirdness.
  3. Annihilation, Book 1 by various. Enjoyable space opera using Marvel's outer-space based characters. Not trying to be "meaningful" and therefore more successful as entertainment than "Civil War" (from what I've heard). (Checked out of the library.)
  4. Usagi Yojimbo, vol. 9: Daisho by Stan Sakai. In this volume, Usagi's swords get stolen, and he is relentless in seeking out the thief.
  5. Hikaru no Go, vol. 5: Start by Yumi Hotta & Takeshi Obata. More manga about a board game.
  6. The Dark Tower, Book 5: Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King. This series grows on me with each volume, and I liked it from the start. Who would have thought that King would write a spaghetti western?
  7. Small Favors, vol. 2 by Colleen Coover.
  8. Claymore, vol. 6: The Endless Gravestones by Norihiro Yagi. (Library.)
  9. Usagi Yojimbo, vol. 10: The Brink of Life & Death by Stan Sakai.
  10. Ranma 1/2, vol. 34 by Rumiko Takahashi. As we close in on the end of this series, Takahashi starts resolving some of the situations that have been milked for all the comedy they're worth. (Library.)
  11. The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, vol. 2 by Eiji Otsuka & Honsui Yamazaki. Horror manga. (Library.)
  12. Usagi Yojimbo, vol. 11: Seasons by Stan Sakai.
