Pluto Is Amazing

  1. Pluto, vol. 1 by Naoki Urasawa.
  2. Pluto, vol. 2 by Naoki Urasawa.
  3. Pluto, vol. 3 by Naoki Urasawa.
  4. Pluto, vol. 4 by Naoki Urasawa.
  5. Pluto, vol. 5 by Naoki Urasawa.
  6. Pluto, vol. 6 by Naoki Urasawa.
  7. Pluto, vol. 7 by Naoki Urasawa.
  8. Pluto: Urasawa X Tezuka, vol. 8 by Naoki Urasawa. The conclusion of Urasawa's version of a classic Astro Boy story. Beautifully done, touching, and a tour de force from start to finish. The original was very much a kid's story, but this one is intended for grown-ups. My highest recommendation.
  9. Irreedemable, vol. 2 by Mark Waid & Peter Krause. The story of a Superman-level super-hero to snaps one day and turns against everybody. (Checked out of the library.)
  10. Hellboy, vol. 9: The Wild Hunt by Mike Mignola & Duncan Fegredo. In the latest Hellboy collection, we learn more about Hellboy's ancestry. I had my doubts about somebody besides Mignola doing the artwork, but Fegredo does a wonderful job (as he did in the last volume).
  11. Counter X, vol. 2: Generation X by Warren Ellis, Brian Wood, & Steve Pugh. Very definitely 90's comics, but pretty good for all that. (Library.)
  12. The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson by Roger Langridge. Langridge has really captured the feel of the show. Lots of fun.
  13. Essential Spider-Woman, vol. 2 By Chris Claremont, Steve Leialoa, et al. Claremont's comics sure are wordy. And full of angst. But I enjoy them anyway.
  14. Doctor Doom and the Masters of Evil by Paul Tobin & Patrick Scherberger. Great story about Doom teaming up with a much of other villains.
  15. Hero Squared, vol. 3: Love and Death by Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis, & Nathan Watson. Humorous super-heroics.

A couple of movies this week:
  • Sherlock Holmes. Fun movie. Great chemistry between Holmes & Watson.
  • Doctor Who: The Sea Devils. This would have been better if it had only been 4 episodes instead of 6, but still entertaining.
