Perfection. I highly recommend the book Science Fair, now don't be put off becuase it's a young adult novel, it is the funniest book I've ever read (My parents re-read it all the time)

Bastards. How dare they! D:<

I mean, I'm currently reading Horus Rising by Dan Abnett (no, seriously, I am!). And I have absolutely no idea why I didn't start reading it sooner. I can't get enough of it.

It's the same thing that happened with Vampires. Soon we'll be getting movies about sexy teenage zombies.

If vampire movies have taught us anything, it's that necrophilia is socially acceptable.

Diego Marani - New Finnish Grammar

Meeting the author on Wednesday, and the book has been nominated for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, so might as well give it a read!

EDIT: Now on Tony Kushner - Angels in America

Just finished Craig Thompson'a Habibi. Exquisite piece of graphic storytelling.
Seriously recommended.

Also finished The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, by Michael Chabon. And it lives up to its title! Great piece of prose for any comic book reader.


Need to finally get through the end of A Once and Future King, by T.H. White, but also have to read some Lévi-Strauss and C.G. Jung.

Working on "Last days of Krypton" (Not the town from Kentucky) and it sheds some light on the, well, last days of Krypton and I am loving every moment of it.

I am thinking about reading The Lord of the Rings next, but I am unsure.

How is that? Understanding Comics is a brilliant piece of seminal work in Comics Studies.
Does the sequel live up to it?
