Given that I'm 3 weeks behind, I'm not going to get caught up today. But I'm on vacation through Thursday, so I'll have a chance to update later in the week. (Just don't count on it.)
- X-Factor Visionaries: Peter David, vol. 4 by Peter David, Jae Lee, Joe Quesada, et al. Comics in the 90s were remarkably ugly. And X-Men crossovers were impenetrable (not that they're much more comprehensible now).
- Showcase Presents Superman Family, vol. 2 by various. More Silver Age wackiness.
- Bleach, vol. 23: !Mala Suerte! by Tite Kubo. (That first exclamation point should be upside down, but I don't know how to do that.)
- The American Way by John Ridley & Georges Jeanty. Superhero story set in the 60s and dealing with actual issues of the day. Most swear words in this comic were represented by symbols like: @#$%, so it came as a surprise when the n-word appeared in full. It was used in a context-appropriate way, but it was still a shock. (Checked out of the library.)
- Penny Arcade, vol. 5: The Case of the Mummy's Gold by Jerry Holkins & Mike Krahulik. More comics about video games. (Borrowed from Teena.)
- Jack of Fables, vol. 3: The Bad Prince by Bill Willingham, Matthew Sturges, et al. More adventures, and some hints as to what's going on.
- Dogs and Water by Anders Nilsen. (Library.)
- The Death of Captain America, vol. 1: The Death of the Dream by Ed Brubaker, Steve Epting, & Mike Perkins. I feel I should have something to say about this, but I don't. Of course, the story's not over. Maybe then.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 8, vol. 2: No Future for You by Brian K. Vaughan & Georges Jeanty. I like the idea of doing the "eighth season" as a series of story-arcs rather than trying to fit an "episode" into each issue.
- The Museum Vaults: Excerpts from the Journal of an Expert by Marc-Antoine Mathieu. (Library.)
- 100 Bullets, vol. 4: A Forgone Tomorrow by Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso. Still enjoying this. (Library.)
- From the Desk of Warren Ellis, vol. 2: 1998-1999. More discussion of comics.
- The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic & The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett, Scott Rockwell, & Steven Ross. The early Discworld books aren't the best of the bunch, not by a long shot. These two books in particular are parodies of fantasy novels, rather than the commentary on society that the later books will be. Still, they can be funny.
- Take Our Cat, Please by Darby Conley. Another Get Fuzzy collection.
That's enough for now. More later in the week (I hope).
