Another Short Entry

I just haven't felt like typing lately, so I don't have much to say about the following books.

  1. Alan Moore's Yuggoth Cultures & Other Growths by Moore, et al. Miscellanea from Moore & a Lovecraftian story written by Antony Johnston.
  2. Batman: Turning Points by various. An exploration of Batman's relationship with Commissioner Gordon throughout the years.
  3. Mean by Steven Weissman. A collection of early Yikes! cartoons. (Checked out of the library.)
  4. Piracy, vol. 2 by various. Reprint of EC comics from the 1950s.
  5. The Legion of Super-Heroes: The Great Darkness Saga by Paul Levitz & Keith Giffen. I've been meaning to re-read this for a while to see if it still holds up. I remember really enjoying these comics when I was a kid. And, while I don't find it as exciting as I once did, it's still entertaining. But probably only for people who are already LSH fans.
  6. The Legion of Super-Heroes: Eye for an Eye by Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen, Steve Lightly, & Joe Orlando. Not quite as strong as the previous book, but still good.
  7. Postcards: True Stories that Never Happened edited by Jason Rodriguez. An interesting concept for an anthology. The editor bought used postcards from junk shops & antique stores and gave them to writers & artists to use as story seeds. (Library.)
  8. Jack of Fables, vol. 2: Jack of Hearts by Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges, Tony Akins, Steve Leialoha, & Andrew Pepoy. The main character in this series may be thoroughly selfish & unpleasant, but the stories about him are entertaining.
  9. Astro Boy, vol. 21 by Osamu Tezuka.
