- Fantastic Four, vol. 2: Unified Field Theory by Jonathan Hickman ^ Dale Eaglesham. More super-heroics and fantastic science. (Checked out of the library.)
- Thunderbolts Classic, vol. 1 by Kurt Busiek & Mark Bagley. A great take on super-heroes finally collected. I hope further volumes are coming.
- Powers, vol. 13: Z by Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Avon Oeming. (Library.)
- A Sickness in the Family by Denise Mina & Antonio Fuso. Family dysfunction comics. (Library.)
- DC Comics Presents Night Force by Marv Wolfman & Gene Colan. Cheap collection of the first four issues of a horror series from the creators that brought us a fantastic run in Tomb of Dracula.
- The Sensational She-Hulk, vol. 1 by John Byrne. Light-hearted and fourth-wall-breaking super-heroics. Can't decide if the cheesecake in this book is fan service or Byrne indulging himself (possibly both).
- Stephen King's The Stand: Hardcases by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Mike Perkins.
Continuing the adaptation. (Borrowed from Teena.)
- Marvel Adventures Avengers, vol. 9: The Times They Are A-Changin' by Paul Tobin, Matteo Lolli, et al. More fun all-ages comics.
- Showcase Presents, vol. 3: Green Lantern by John Broome, Gardner Fox, & Gil Kane.
I love DC's Showcase Presents and Marvel's Essentials collections. They are a cheap way to read tons of old comics.
- Marvel Adventures Avengers: Iron Man by Paul Tobin & Ronan Cliquet. Tobin really does write some fun comics.
- Essential Defenders, vol. 3 by various. The first third or so of this volume (the issues written by Steve Gerber) are filled with wild & interesting ideas. Bizarre and absurd stories that really work for me. The rest of the book isn't quite so good.
A couple of movies this week:
