So we got ourselves a wi-fi hub so we would be able to download songs for Rock Band, but the online Sony store is incredibly picky about credit cards, and it keeps telling us our card aren't valid. Plus, the security settings on the hub are apparently incompatible with our Nintendo DSs. Thank goodness the online Wii stuff works.

Anyway, on to books:

  1. Zoot Suite by Andrew & Roger Langridge.
  2. Sidescrollers by Matthew Loux. (Checked out of the library.)
  3. JLA Presents: Aztek - The Ultimate Man by Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, & N. Steven Harris. Pretty good, but the artist wasn't that great with story-telling. Sometimes it was hard to tell what was going on or just who was in a particular scene.
  4. Nothing Better, vol. 1: No Place Like Home by Tyler Page. I quite liked this comic about a pair of college roommates. (Library.)
  5. Little White Mouse Perfect Collection, no. 1 by Paul Sizer. This is an enjoyable science fiction comic about a young woman stranded on a mining satellite. I'm not sure there are any more "Perfect Collections", but it looks like there is a collection that has the entire series. I'll need to look for that.
  6. Rocketo: Journey to the Hidden Sea, vol. 2 by Frank Espinosa & Marie Taylor. Gorgeous art, and a great, pulpy adventure story. I really liked this. (Library.)
  7. Iron Man & Power Pack: Armored & Dangerous by Marc Sumerak & Marcel Dichiara. Yet another book bought to pass on to Teena's classroom library.
  8. Monster, vol. 14: That Night by Naoki Urasawa. (Library.)
  9. The Question, vol. 2: Poisoned Ground by Dennis O'Neil & Denys Cowan. These comics aren't quite as cool as I remember them being from when I read them in the 80s, but they're still pretty damn good.
  10. MPD Psycho, vol. 1 by Eiji Otsuka & Sho-u Tajima. Another horror manga. (Library.)
  11. Atomic City Tales, vol. 2: Doc Phantom by Jay Stephens.
  12. Superman: The World of Krypton by John Byrne, Mike Mignola, Rick Bryant, et al.
