Lots of Books (many of them from the library)
  1. Captain America: Theater of War by Paul Jenkins, et al. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. Children of the Sea, vol. 2 by Daisuke Igarashi. Slow-paced, but beautiful manga about two boys who were raised by a pod of dugongs. (Library.)
  3. Girl Genius book9: Agatha Heterodyne and the Heirs of the Storm by Phil and Kaja Foglio. This is good as always, but it does sometimes feel like the story has stalled.
  4. Black Widow: Deadly Origin by Paul Cornell, Tom Raney, & John Paul Leon. (Library.)

  5. DMZ, vol. 8: Hearts and Minds by Brian Wood, Riccardo Burchilli, & Ryan Kelly. Still great, even though the main character has become extremely unlikeable.

  6. Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, vol. 6 by Bryan Lee O'Malley. Great and satisfying conclusion to the series. I hope the upcoming movie lives up to its source material.
  7. Avengers/X-Men: Utopia by Matt Fraction, et al. (Library.)
  8. Wolverine Weapon X, vol 1: Adamantium Men Premiere by Jason Aaron & Ron Garney. (Library.)
  9. The 120 Days of Simon: A Graphic Odyssey Through Sweden by Simon Gardenfors. A Swedish cartoonist and rapper spends four months couch surfing. I have to say he comes across as a bit of a jackass in this, but that may be deliberate. (Library.)
  10. Gotham City Sirens: Union by Paul Dini, Guillem March, et al. The story is good, but the art is very cheesecake-y, and not in a good way. (Library.)
  11. Power Girl: A New Beginning by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, & Amanda Conner. Now, Amanda Conner does a good job of cheesecake art. Plus, she does great facial expressions and background details. (Library.)

  12. Starman Omnibus, vol. 4 by James Robinson, Tony Harris, et al. This contains several issues that had not been previously reprinted, including the crossover with Hellboy.
  13. Theo and the Blue Note by Peter Kuper. Kid's book about jazz. (Library.)
  14. Tiny Titans: Adventures in Awesomeness by Art Baltazar and Franco. More kid's comics. (Library.)

  15. FreakAngels, vol. 4 by Warren Ellis & Paul Duffield. The latest collection of Ellis's webcomic.
  16. X-Men First Class: Finals by Jeff Parker, Amilcar Pinna & Roger Cruz. I got this signed by Parker on Saturday, when he appeared at Cosmic Monkey Comics. He is one of my favorite current comics writers.

  17. B.P.R.D., vol. 12: War on Frogs by Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Guy Davis, et al. Collection of one-shots about the B.P.R.D.'s fight against the frog monsters.
  18. Irredeemable, vol. 3 by Mark Waid, Peter Krause, & Diego Barreto. (Library.)
  19. The Night Owls by Peter & Bobby Timony. The adventures of a 1920s detective agency that specializes in dealing with the supernatural.

And even with all that, I had time to watch some things:
