Weekend update

  1. Essential X-Factor, vol. 2 by Louise Simonson, Walter Simonson, et al. Certain plot elements take way too long to play out, and the angst factor is cranked up way too high, but these comics are entertaining, and the art is fantastic.
  2. Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes: Dominator War by Mark Waid & Barry Kitson, with Tony Bedard & Kevin Sharpe. (Checked out of the library.)
  3. The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born by Stephen King, Robin Furth, Peter David, Jae Lee, & Richard Isanove. This is a nice adaptation of Roland's youth, and the art is amazing. But it is something of a disappointment because when this project was first announced, we were told it would cover untold tales of the young gunslinger. Instead it is simply an adaptation of parts of the first and fourth books in King's series. Still quite good, though.
  4. Heroes, vol. 1 by various. This is a collection of the web-comics NBC posted online while the first season of Heroes aired. We get to learn more about the characters, including quite a bit about one character who only appeared onscreen in a couple of episodes.
  5. Yotsuba &!, vol. 3 by Kiyohiko Azuma. Oh, the cuteness. (Library.)
  6. Runaways, vol. 3 by Brian K. Vaughan, Adrian Alphona, & Mike Norton.
  7. Platinum Grit, Book 3 by Trudy Cooper & Danny Murphy. Strange stuff.
