snarklyboojum: (this book made the little fluffers)
Damn it, why the hell is it always my books that get wet when the roof leaks? The Powers tpb was right next to the gossip mags, why'd the good stuff have to go? *sigh* I think it's still salvageable, though the front cover's gonna be tricky. Huh. The inner pages only got soaked to the part where the superhero pees on the underage hooker - the rest of the pages are only slightly damp. An ironic twist, or a cruel joke of nature?

I only just discovered Powers recently, and hot damn am I hooked. It's basically CSI with superheroes, only with much better writing and a healthy disrespect for the characters and ideals that make superheroes so exciting in the first place. Continuity's kickass and the art sets the tone perfectly - oh, the lighting, it's fantastic on this book. Powers has the best use of shadow I have ever seen in a comicbook. Ever.

I can rant all night about the storylines and drama and little details that make me crazy (and I'm not using that word lightly, it's becoming a thing) but I'd much rather you read it for yourselves. The trades are available all over, and cheaper at Amazon than you'd expect. There's even the first few storyarcs online, so there's really no reason for you not to read them, is there?

Needless to say, adult content yonder. (But isn't that the fun part?)

Start here, at the first stroryarc: Who Killed Retro Girl?
The latest online page. (NOTE: This is updated weekly and contains major spoilers if clicked by the unawary.)
P!Online - The official page. Nifty, huh?

I normally don't post memes, but I really liked this one. I worked in a children's library for almost a year, so this is something I'm a little...familiar with, shall we say. ;)

100 Books Every Child Should Read meme, gacked from [livejournal.com profile] cincodemaygirl:

Neil Gaiman posted a link to the Telegraph's list of 100 books every
child should read. I've bolded the ones I've read, and my comments are in italics.

Behold it! )

First Impressions upon finishing Deathly Hallows at 2:50 in the morning on a Tuesday... )

Though I have many HP icons available, I offer you Anya and the freaked out bunny book in absence of potential spoilers. Plus, it fits doesn't it? :)
snarklyboojum: (three of the world's greatest minds)
I'm dying for the two issues of Planetary I don't have, and my local comic shop is being less than helpful. (Don't get me wrong, I love 'em, but their track record of back issues is not as pleasant as I'd like.) I know a lot of you read comics, and I could use some help.

Is there any website or company that reliantly delivers back issues? I used to go through Amazing Universe, but that's apparently folded since I stopped reading comics.



And I'm still crazy-psyched for this, man. Seriously. I hope they focus on the series before it went all lame, because the first four books are some of my all time favorites. The synopsis sounds like the flashbacks Wizard and Glass, so here's hoping. *crosses her fingers*
snarklyboojum: (is it all books and words?)
Before heading off to work a mildly horrific party until the wee hours of the morning, mom and I took my nephew to see Eragon. He was excited. I was indifferent. I've never read the books, but remember hearing all the excitement about the series when it was first released, much the same as with the Harry Potter books. (Working in a library will do that to you, I suppose.)

I'm going to cut my reactions, though if you click you'll understand why I shouldn't. )
