010) Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, finished February 18
- The great classic, right?
I liked it more this time around. I was more able to understand why people talk up Gibbons's art. It has less to do with the look (which is typical of the time period), but the composition and choice of detail is what's impressive here.
As literature, it has the sort of density and complexity that gets it on, say, Time's Top 100 list.
It's a good book and I like and appreciate it. And I fail to see how any movie can do it justice.
week or so
009) Superman: Red Son by MJR&M, finished February 11
- An Elsewords I've long been interested in. Superman lands in Ukraine rather than Kansas and is raised communist. Pretty well done. I liked it. Worth a read.
008) The Best American Comics 2008 edited by Lynda Barry, finished February 9
- By far the best of the series. Read an indepth look at Fobcomics.
about a month i guess
007) The Blot by Tom Neely, finished February 6
- I reread it to write my book-of-the-year post at Fobcomics. Truly an amazing book.
about an hour
006) JSA: Darkness Falls by Goyer, Johns, et al, finished January 28
- There. I finished it. And I have to say having the entirety of space and time in constant peril is rather tiring.
