Not Much This Week

  1. The Viking Prince by Bob Haney, Joe Kubert, et al.

    The stories collected here blend together, but the real draw is Kubert's art, which is pretty fantastic. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. The Boys, vol. 6: Self-Preservation Society by Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, et al. More of Ennis's brutal exploration of super-heroes. (Library.)
  3. DC Comics Presents: Son of Superman by Howard Chaykin, David Tischman, and J.H. Williams III. Not as cynical as I had expected, given that it was co-written by Chaykin.
  4. The Bulletproof Coffin by David Hine & Shaky Kane.

    Bizarre take on comics and nostalgia. Wonderfully strange and brain-bending.
  5. DC Comics Presents: The Legion of Super-Heroes by Dan Abnett, Andy Lannning, & Olivier Copiel. Not sure why DC chose to reprint these 4 issues, but it's a pretty good LSH story.
  6. Hitman, vol. 1 by Garth Ennis & John McCrea. DC has been reprinting Hitman, and so I decided to re-read the volumes I already had to prepare for when they get to the gaps in my collection.
  7. Hitman, vol. 2: 10,000 Bullets by Garth Ennis & John McCrea. Over the top violence.

No movies this week, but I did run the fourth session of In Nomine today. We nearly finished up the adventure. The next time we play will be the denouement.
