A Ton of Library Books

  1. Richard Stark's Parker, book 1: The Hunter adapted by Darwyn Cooke. Very dark crime novel. Looks gorgeous, though. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. The Twelve, vol. 1 by J. Michael Straczynski & Chris Weston. Interesting take on a bunch (twelve, in fact) Golden Age super-heroes. (Library.)
  3. The Umbrella Academy, vol. 2: Dallas by Gerard Way & Gabriel Ba. Good, but I don't quite get what all the fuss is about. (Library.)
  4. Batman: Going Sane by J.M. DeMatteis & Joe Staton. What does the Joker do when he thinks he's killed Batman? (Library.)
  5. Secret Identities: The Asian American Super Hero Anthology by various. (Library.)
  6. Ultimate Fantastic Four, vol. 4: Inhuman by Mike Carey, Mark Millar, & Jae Lee. (Library.)
  7. Hikaru no Go, vol. 16: Chinese Go Association by Yumi Hotta & Takeshi Obata. (Library.)
  8. Spike: After the Fall by Brian Lynch & Franco Urru. (Library.)
  9. Avengers: The Initiative, vol. 1: Basic Training by Dan Slott & Stefano Caseil. Pretty good comics to come out of a cross-over event. (Library.)
  10. 30 Days of Night: Juarez by Matt Fraction & Ben Templesmith. Didn't much care for the original story (although I liked the art), but I do like Fraction's writing, so I gave this a chance. Pretty good.(Library.)
  11. Hikaru no Go, vol. 17: Familiar Face by Yumi Hotta & Takeshi Obata. As I keep saying, I'm still enjoying this series about a board game. (Library.)
  12. Ultimate Fantastic Four, vol 5: Crossover by Mark Millar & Greg Land. (Library.)
  13. Echo, vol. 1: Moon Lake by Terry Moore. While I enjoyed Moore's Strangers in Paradise at the start, I eventually grew fed up with it, and I have been rather sour on Moore ever since then. However, I kept hearing good things about this series, so I picked this up. Very good, and I'll be getting further volumes.
  14. Fullmetal Alchemist, vol. 20 by Hiromu Arakawa. This seems to be picking back up. (Library.)
  15. The Five Fists of Science by Matt Fraction & Steven Sanders. Mark Twain & Nikola Tesla use the power of Science! to save us from the machinations of Thomas Edison, Andrew Carnegie, and J.P. Morgan. Lots of fun.
  16. The Rockpool Files by Glenn Dakin & Phil Elliot. Odd little piece about anthropomorphic fish detectives.
  17. Girl Genius, book 8: Agatha Heterodyne and the Chapel of Bones by Phil and Kaja Foglio. I still read the web comic when it comes out, but this does read much better in collected form, and I find the art looks better on paper than on a screen.


Another week with just one movie:
  • Notorious. Alfred Hitchcock, Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, & Claude Rains. I had never seen this before. I am constantly amazed at how good Hitchcock was at building suspense.
