One Series Done

  1. Hunter X Hunter, vol. 8 by Yoshihiro Togashi. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. Northwest Passage by Scott Chantler. Frontier adventure set in the wilds of 18th century Canada.
  3. Zombie Powder, vol. 3: Pierce Me Standing in the Firegarden by Tite Kubo. I generally like Kubo's work, but I often find it hard to follow his action sequences.
  4. Usagi Yojimbo, vol. 16: The Shrouded Moon by Stan Sakai. I am amazed at how good Usagi Yojimbo has been for so long. Sakai really knows what he's doing.
  5. The Louche & Insalubrious Escapades of Art d'Ecco by Andrew & Roger Langridge. (Library.)
  6. The Dark Tower, Book VII: The Dark Tower by Stephen King. At last, I have completed reading this series. I liked it from the beginning and think the books improved as they went (although I have a few issues with the ending). Reading these books has made me a King fan, and I will be reading more of his books in the future. (Not for a while, though. Once I finish the Harry Potter books, I'm going to need a break from huge, thick books for a while.) (Borrowed from Teena.)
  7. 52, vol. 1 by various. I enjoyed this well enough, but I think it would have felt more exciting if I'd been reading this weekly as the issues were published. Still, it's good enough that I'll be getting the other volumes. (However, from what I've read online of DC's follow-up weekly comic, I will not be buying the collections to Countdown.)
  8. The Complete Peanuts: 1961-1962 by Charles Schulz. I was amazed at how many of the comics in this book (and the other Complete Peanuts volume I read) are ones I remember from the many, many Peanuts books I had as a kid. It's been close to 30 years since I read those books, but they still remain in my head. I wish Schulz had felt better about what he did. He was a treasure.
  9. Usagi Yojimbo, vol. 17: Duel at Kitanoji by Stan Sakai. This will be the last UY book I read for a while, unless Dark Horse reprints volume 18 soon.
  10. Bleach, vol. 20: End of Hypnosis by Tite Kubo.
