Light Week
  1. Iorich by Steven Brust. The latest Vlad Taltos novel. Teena found it disappointing, but I enjoyed it (possibly because my expectations were lowered by Teena's reaction). (Borrowed from Teena.)
  2. Showcase Presents World's Finest, vol. 1 by various. When DC started publishing the Showcase Presents volumes, I was disappointed when the Batman books started well after the wacky sci-fi Batman stories of the 50s. Fortunately, there is World's Finest, with the full allotment of Silver Age weirdness. Plus I get both Batman and Superman in each story.
  3. Secret Warriors, vol. 1: Nick Fury: Agent of Nothing by Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman, & Stefano Caselli. Not terribly impressed. (Checked out of the library.)
  4. MPD Psycho, vol. 8 by Eiji Otsuka & Sho-U Tajima. I'm pretty sure I've read this volume before, but it's been long enough ago that I'm glad for the refresher before moving on to newer volumes. (Library.)
  5. The Life & Times of Savior 28 by J.M. DeMatteis & Mike Cavallero. What would happen if a super-hero decided to stop fighting? Really well done. Highly recommended.
  6. Detroit Metal City, vol. 3 by Kiminori Wakasugi. Further misadventures of a nice guy hipster who would love nothing more than to sing Swedish pop, who is instead the leader of Japan's number one death metal band. (Library.)

And just one movie this week:
  • Twilight. We watched this with the RiffTrax commentary, and I'm glad we did, because it would have been unendurable without the jokes. It was pretty excruciating even with them.
