An Even Lighter Week

Went to Stumptown Comics Fest earlier today. It was a lot of fun, especially Larry Marder's panel, in which he announced that Beanworld would be returning soon.

  1. Making Comics by Scott McCloud. McCloud's most recent non-fiction book about comics. It seemed a little weird, reading this when I don't really have any intention to create comics, but it's still an interesting & excellently crafted book, even from my perspective as only a comics reader.
  2. The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, vol. 6 by Eiji Otsuka & Housui Yamazaki. More Japanese horror comics. (Checked out of the library.)
  3. The New Avengers, vol. 6: Revolution by Brian Michael Bendis, Leinil Yu, and Alex Maleev. Meh. (Library.)
  4. Finder, book 1: Sin-Eater by Carla Speed McNeil. McNeil has collected the first Finder storyline (previously available as two trade paperbacks), along with a previously uncollected issue, into a hardcover. So that gave me an excuse to re-read this fantastic story. She does an absolutely amazing job of world-building. Wonderful stuff, highly recommended.
