And Now Back to Books

  1. John Constantine, Hellblazer: Bloodlines by Garth Ennis, Will Simpson, et al. Most (all?) of the last uncollected issues from Ennis's run on this title.
  2. Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis. Ellis's first novel. I quite liked this. It felt somewhat reminiscent of The Illumintus! Trilogy, but with the weirdness level turned down to only slightly beyond what is beyond the realm of possibility.
  3. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne, vol. 7 by John Byrne, et al. Closing in on the end of Byrne's run on the FF.
  4. Parasyte, vol. 1 by Hitoshi Iwaki. Japanese horror, with a touch of humor. (Checked out of the library.)
  5. Monster Month: Thirty-one New Discoveries from the World's Foremost Cryptozoologist by Prof. Ichbonnsen, with illustrations by Sven Bonnichsen. Last Thursday, Teena & I went to the book release party for this tome. We had a lot of fun and picked up a copy of the book, which I quite enjoyed. Lots of daring-do & fascinating creatures.
  6. I'm Ready for My Movie Contract by Darby Conley. The latest Get Fuzzy collection.

Well, that didn't take too long, so I guess I'll finish catching up on movies.

I especially enjoyed the adventure at the end, including the chapter written by Scarlet. Very satisfying end to the book.
