Back in Italy, so I'm catching up on PK.
Then I'll move to Antonio Tabucchi - Sostiene Pereira.

(I'm getting quite a few books for the holidays, so I'll be reading more then!)

The Christmas haul brought several new books!
Those I managed to read were:

Milton Hatoum - Orphans of Eldorado (transl by John Gledson)
David Grossman - Lion's Honey (transl by Stuart Schoffman)

Su Tong - Binu and the Great Wall of China (transl by Howard Goldblatt) is currently in progress.

Currently have Fables: Inherit the Wind, and The Graphic Canon vol. 1 as my comic reads.

Trampled Under Foot : the story of Led Zeppelin by Barney Hoskyns. An interesting read told through snippets of interviews. Quite entertaining and eye opening to say the least!

Had to put stuff on pause as I read Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. And Alison Bechdel's Fun Home.

They were written in the 1950s but the writing style makes it seem like they were written in the 1650s

Almost finished with A Monster Calls, by Patrick Ness.
That book is seriously amazing. It's a young adult/pre-teen novel, and it packs a punch and a half.

I'm also going through volume 1 of IDW Transformers Classics UK.
Wow, the artwork and storytelling are actually pretty astonishing!

I really want to get into that, but I want to have the time to read them all consecutively.
So not until at least this summer, if that.

I have heard really good things about it though!

Currently re-reading the Vengeance of Venom TPB.
I might have to read American Vampire again, too.

I'm reading it now. I'm only about 20 pages in but I like it so far. Reminds me of the Eye of the Dragon, one of my favorite books of his.

I just read Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. That was a truly great book.

I love my comic book of the book of 5 rings.

I used to read the dragonlance novels about Raistlin Majere.

I plan on getting Shanna the she devil the frank cho collection

and

Elektra Mature collection.

The Valiant Comics relaunch last May has been awesome!!
If you aren't familiar they were the 3rd/4th largest comic company in the 90's. They jumped Image a few times.
Then late 90s/early '00 they became Acclaim and went bankrupt about '04.

They are back under new ownership and have 5 titles out:
XO Manowar
Harbinger
Bloodshot
Archer & Armstrong
Shadowman

All good reads but XO is a GREAT read imo, better than 2/3 of what Marvel or DC is putting out.

Sorry to report that Solar, Magnus and Turok will not be appearing any time soon(if at all) in the relaunched Valiant Universe. Those characters were, and still are, owned by another publishing firm and were leased out to Valiant. If the relaunch maintains its momentum and sales are stable the new ownership has teased their own interest in pursuing at least one of the characters to return. Again, they'd have to lease the character unless they could manage to out right buy the rights from the current copyright holder.

The current relaunch, while only having 5 titles, has introduced other popular character concepts such as Ninjak(in XO), Eteranl Warrior and Ivar the Timewalker(Archer&Armstrong), Geomancer(A&A) and Dr.Mirage(Shadowman) into the new Valiant. The summer event seems to be teasing H.A.R.D. Corps as a possibility to emerge.
