Beautiful Day

It is gorgeous out there. Warm, too. I wish Teena weren't sick and I weren't fighting off whatever she has had for the past week. Anyway, here are some books.
  1. Mark Twain's Autobiography 1910-2010 by Michael Kupperman.

    Nonsense about Mark Twain's adventures in the 20th century. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. Chi's Sweet Home, vol. 1 by Konami Kanata.

    I heard this series described as "Yotsuba &! for cat-people", so I thought I'd take a look. It's cute, but it doesn't live up to that description. (Library.)
  3. Joe the Barbarian by Grant Morrison & Sean Murphy.

    Fantastic book about a teenager having amazing adventures in a wonderland. Or maybe he's hallucinating as he slips into an insulin coma. Morrison at the height of his game. Beautiful art from Murphy.
  4. Chimichanga by Eric Powell.

    Cute story about a little girl with a beard and her monster that hatched from an egg. (Library.)
  5. The Compleat Terminal City by Dean Motter & Michael Lark.

    Retro-futurism at its best. Lots of puns and adventure. The only thing that keeps me from recommending this wholeheartedly is that several plots are left unresolved. This is less style-over-substance than Motter's Mister X series, but there is still some in evidence.
  6. Jennifer Blood, vol. 1: Woman's Work Is Never Done by Garth Ennis, et al.

    Bloody vengeance (which could describe a hefty percentage of Ennis's work). (Library.)

Feeling tired, so I'm postponing movies another week.
