Some More Books

  1. Fantastic Four, vol. 2: Unified Field Theory by Jonathan Hickman ^ Dale Eaglesham. More super-heroics and fantastic science. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. Thunderbolts Classic, vol. 1 by Kurt Busiek & Mark Bagley. A great take on super-heroes finally collected. I hope further volumes are coming.
  3. Powers, vol. 13: Z by Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Avon Oeming. (Library.)
  4. A Sickness in the Family by Denise Mina & Antonio Fuso. Family dysfunction comics. (Library.)
  5. 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.
  6. 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).
  7. Stephen King's The Stand: Hardcases by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Mike Perkins.

    Continuing the adaptation. (Borrowed from Teena.)
  8. Marvel Adventures Avengers, vol. 9: The Times They Are A-Changin' by Paul Tobin, Matteo Lolli, et al. More fun all-ages comics.
  9. 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.
  10. Marvel Adventures Avengers: Iron Man by Paul Tobin & Ronan Cliquet. Tobin really does write some fun comics.
  11. 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:
