    Since there are graphic novels listed I'll cheat a little and list a few comics I have enjoyed recently...........



    Saga- a somewhat weird sci-fi comic. Only on issue 14 so you can still find the back issues and hop on board.





    Clone- So you are minding your own business leading a happy life and then you discover your a clone, what is worse someone is trying to eliminate you. Rumor is Universal wants to turn it into a TV show. 11 issues so far.



    Jupiter's Legacy- The world's greatest heroes are, well, old. Their super powered kids are spoiled drug and booze addled party animals. Mark Millar (the guy who did Kick Ass) and Frank Quitelyy are awesome in this book. Only 3 issues in!



    Lazarus- Set in the not to distant future. The world is pretty messed up most governments have collapsed and the ones that haven't are greatly weakened, the power lies with huge corporations and the families that control them. (The writer was inspired by seeing the Occupy movement in NYC a couple of years ago). Basically society has reverted back to feudalism. "In each family there is one person given the best they can offer, training and technology and assets, every scientific advantage. the person is named their Family's sword and shield, their protector, their LAZARUS." Only on issue 4.



    The Massive- Whale Wars meets mad max. Set in a post apocalyptic near future, the crew of the of the Kapital is searching for their missing sister ship the Massive. Pretty good stuff.

    Right with you on getting back into the reading mode. Took a small break and ready to jump back in. I haven't read The Shining but may get to it soon and then see if I can go straight to the sequel.

    Just finished this for the first time:



    I found it readable, but did not connect with it at all. Honestly, I kept waiting for something to happen, unaware that this was all just about existential teenage angst. On an intellectual level, I get it, but emotionally this book did nothing for me.

    And since KP brought up some (really awesome) comics, I've recently been enjoying:


    Sex Criminals - Two issues in, this is about a couple who have discovered that they are able to stop time when they orgasm. So, naturally, they decide to rob banks after the **** in them. There hasn't been a whole lot of crime yet, so far it's just been the two of them discussing their discovery of sex and what happens when time stops. Two issues in and I'm pretty sure this is the greatest thing Matt Fraction has ever written. I love it. If you pick this up, make sure to keep an eye out for the stuff that artist Chip Zdarsky adds in the background, especially in issue 2 when the male character is in the porn shop. Lots of laughs there.



    East Of West - For many years, humans have fought amongst themselves in bloody wars and conflict. A terrible event happens to stop the world fighting. A treaty for peace is put into place by various nations of the world known as the Seven Nations of America. But then, a prophecy happens that will usher in the end of the world by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The prophecy is known as The Message, and end of the world is near. But something is amiss about the Message and Horsemen: there are three Horsemen...so where is the fourth? That Horseman, Death, is traveling the planet on a personal vendetta that could change the destiny of the planet. All this by Jonathan Hickman, who is, for my money, the best writer in the business right now. I highly recommend every single book he is writing right now. All of them.

    My copy of "S" arrived yesterday (from Doug Dorst/JJ Abrams). It has so many little inserts inside of it, that I have no idea how to read it anywhere except @ home!

    It seemed like the right time to read it.

    I really enjoyed it.

    Finished Whistling Vivaldi and I have to say it's a really good book to explain some of the academic work in context with institutional efforts to help level the playing field in terms of disadvantaged groups. They also do a really good job of explaining the context behind what can cause a disadvantage. There's good stuff in it for anyone that has to manage people coming from a mishmash of backgrounds.

    Also read the Dan Brown Inferno, really enjoyed the location settings and the overall storyline was this time neat and concise. Really surprised he didn't take more flak in the media for the subject matter of the book all things considered.

    I'm about to read Flowers in the Attic, which sounds like a crazy soap opera in written form. I've been meaning to read it for years, I'm always reading books right when I hear they're being adapted into films so...now's as good a time as any.

    Just finished this, Redshirts by John Scalzi. Great read for any sci fi fan. Takes awhile to get going, but the payoff is amazing. And, yes, it IS what you think it is. It's a comedy with a sweet ending.
    GO KINGS GO!
