Twilight Princess finished

The day after my last post I finished playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It's a fantastic game, and I'm looking forward to the next Zelda game, whenever it arrives.

On to books:

  1. The Indelible Alison Bechdel: Confessions, Comix, & Miscellaneous Dykes to Watch Out For. Miscellanea that has not made it into Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out For books, including the cartoons she did for six years worth of calendars.
  2. Wildlife Preserves by Gary Larson. Another Far Side collection.
  3. Annihilation, Book Three by various. Science fiction war comics from Marvel. (Checked out of the library.)
  4. Shaman King, vol. 10: The Song of Doom by Hiroyuki Takei. I had been content to simply read this series as it was serialized in Shonen Jump, but they recently dropped it from their line-up, and I want to see where the story goes, so I'm reading the graphic novels again. (Library.)
  5. Cromartie High School, vol. 3 by Eiji Nonaka. Completely absurd comics about the toughest high school in Tokyo. (Library.)
  6. 52, vol. 2 by various. The stories here really started to gel for me in this volume, and I enjoyed it more than the previous one.
  7. The Far Side Observer by Gary Larson. These comics really do hold up well.
  8. The Drifting Classroom, vol. 6 by Kazuo Umezu. The most histrionic story I've ever read. Fascinating in its oddity. (Library.)
  9. Battler Britton by Garth Ennis & Colin Wilson. Nobody else (at least nobody else currently working) writes war comics like Ennis. Actually, I'm not sure anybody else currently working writes war comics. (Library.)
  10. InuYasha, vol. 29 by Rumiko Takahashi. I recently learned that I gave up on watching the InuYasha anime shortly before it finished it's run. This is made slightly less frustrating by the fact that apparently it didn't come to any conclusion. Presumably it wrapped up the last storyline, but I'm sure the Big Bad wasn't defeated. (Library.)
  11. Re-Gifters by Mike Carey, Sonnie Liew, & Marc Hempel. This is a great little story about martial arts & high school romance. Check it out; you won't be sorry. (Library.)
  12. Knights of the Dinner Table Bundle of Trouble, vol. 8 by Jolly Blackburn, et al. Entertaining stories, but horrible artwork.
  13. Hunter X Hunter, vol. 9 by Yoshihiro Togashi. (Library.)
  14. Demo by Brian Wood & Becky Cloonan. A fantastic collection of stories about people with special abilities. What X-Men could be without the superheroes.
  15. Star Wars: Legacy, vol. 1: Broken by John Ostrander & Jan Duursema. Say what you will about Lucas, he did create a universe in which writers who are actually, you know, good have set some fun stories.
