I'm on volume 28 of uncle johns bathroom reader
So if we're going to start including graphic novels...
I just finished the first 17 volumes of Peter David's recent X-Factor run.
It's mostly about some of the lesser-known mutants in Marvel's universe running what is basically a mutant detective agency. The series is up to 20 trades, but I haven't picked up 18-20 yet. It's a great ****ing book. Funny and smart as hell. Never fails to surprise. I'm a big fan of Peter David, and it's my favorite thing he's done so far.
Walking Dead Vol. 18 - I really like where this book is at right now, as far as where the characters are at both physically and otherwise, but the current bad guy, Negan, is in many ways very similar to the Governor. The last issue of this trade brings in Ezekiel, though, who I know is going to be an important player next trade and seems like a very interesting character. The book is still an enjoyable read for me and the artwork by Charlie Adlard continues to be excellent.
Look. If you have not read the Preacher run, well you know nothing. It is the be all and end all, easily the greatest/most necessary since Miller's Dark Knight and Moore's Watchmen. Yeah, it's that good.
I got this in the mail today
Next to Lemmy, Al is the ****. I expect this to be a fun read. Never had a lot of luck with bio's, hopefully this will spark me to read the Ace Frehley/Peter Criss/Glenn Hughes bios I got collecting dust...oh yeah, and Keith Richards/Sammy Hagar/Rod Stewart too.
I've read the Preacher and I still don't know a damn thing. mhihi: :manybeers:
Seriously, I'll say it again, when the Preacher, the Invisibles, and Transmetropolitan were all coming out, well, that was a golden age.
