Audio Books?

Yes, it is something I'm giving ago. I can't help but feel like I'm cheating somehow by 'listening' to someone reading me a book. A bit like bedtime stories for kids. However, it does afford me time to do other things like drawing whilst I listen, and it is a very enjoyable way to 'read' a story too (so far).

The low point in my reading this month has to have been Phonogram. I know that it is a highly respected comic, but it just didn't work for me. It felt like someone had decided that it would be a good idea to merge the premise of High Fidelity with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The highlight this month was a three-way tie between Jonah Hex #70, Samurai's Blood #1 and Shinku #1. All three are fantastic reads and I will be keeping an eye out in future months for the trade editions of both Shinku and Samurai's Blood. This also marked a great way to end things with the Jonah Hex title for me, as the new DC Universe kicks in and changes the character and title into something that doesn't appeal to me. Best to end on a high if you have to call it a day, and that it did.

Next Month?

Here is a photo from my reading pile this morning, this doesn't include any of my weekly/monthly comic pull list either:


If you are eagle-eyed you may note a bookmark jammed in a Star Wars trade edition, so that is one for next month's list already.

After that?

Who knows!

  1. The story always ends in words...and begins in imagination.
