(In case you hadn't noticed, I really don't know how to title posts.)

  1. The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, vol. 9 by Eiji Otsuka & Housui Yamazuki. More Japanese horror. (Library.)
  2. Green Lantern Corps: Sins of the Star Sapphire by Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, & Luke Ross. More prep work for "Blackest Night", which is just starting now. (Library.)
  3. Zorro Year One: Trail of the Fox by Matt Wagner & Francesco Francavilla. I quite enjoyed this, but was rather bother by the fact that the biggest words on the front cover (even larger than "Zorro") are "Isabelle Allende" when she didn't have anything to do with this graphic novel. There are much smaller words that say "Inspired by the novel by" but come on.
  4. Justice League International, vol. 2 by Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, & Kevin Maguire. Fun superheroics. (Library.)
  5. Astro Boy, vol. 22 by Osamu Tezuka. With this volume, I filled in the last gap in my Astro Boy collection.
  6. Empowered, vol. 5 by Adam Warren. The serious plot elements are growing more prominent in each volume, but there's still plenty of light-hearted stuff here. (Library.)

And a couple of movies:

  • Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Girl in Lover's Lane. Dark, awful ending that's not really supported by the rest of the movie. But the jokes are funny.
  • Ink. If you see this described as "It's a Wonderful Life" crossed with "Sin City," don't believe it. It's "It's a Wonderful Life" crossed with "Dark City." The former wouldn't work at all, but the latter works quite well. I felt the beginning was a little too oblique for the story that was being told, but I came around & quite enjoyed this. Teena loved it.
