What's the last book(s) you read? What did you think?

Papa Midnite #1 - It was interesting. I'm not familiar with the character, so it was a little confusing. But it was entertaining nevertheless.

Body Bags #1-4. This is an older mini-series from Dark Horse about a bounty hunter named Clownface, and the dilemma he's faced with when his daughter shows up at his doorstep wanting to join the family business. Overall, it was a nice story. Some of the dialogue was a bit much, but the art was good, and Clownface looked cool.

Phonix Endsong #2 - The first issue was promising, and the second one followed up on that. I like how it uses all the aspects of the Phoenix Force and the people it affects, not just Jean and Scott.

Further Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix #1 - I read #2 awhile back, and it's a fun read. It takes place in 19th century England. It deals with the origin of Mr. Sinister, and of course a time traveling Scott and Jean show up.

Legal Drug #1 - a new manga. It's about a kid with special powers who works for a drugstore. His boss sends him out on a strange missions constantly. It's a fun read, and the nice thing about it is that it's neither girly/romantic or violent. Which is a nice change of pace for a manga which tends to be one or another.

I just finished reading Manga Darkchylde #1. I have several of the original Darkchylde comics, but I never got around to reading them. I saw this one in Previews and ordered it, and I think that it is one I'll keep reading. The visuals are interesting. I kind of like the Manga stylings, especially with the monsters. There isn't a lot of backstory, so I guess it would help if you knew what was going on, but it isn't completely necessary. Through the telling of the first issue you can kind of tell what the deal is.

Battle Royale #9 - My favorite character was killed off, so I wanted to stop reading this manga. But it's really good. It's about a high school class that's stranded on an island and have to kill each other until there's one left for a reality TV show.

This volume was good. It always finds new ways to deal with the recurring theme of teen angst and death. Warning though, it's very gory and pornographic.

Doubt !! #1 - It's a new manga about a geeky girl who makes herself over right before she starts High School, and the adjustments involved. I loved it and really identified with the main character. Now I'm hooked. Unfortunately, I have to wait for the newer volumes.

Apocolypse Nerd #1 - It's about a nerd who survives the Apocolype and is stuck in a cabin outside of Seattle with his stoner friend. I like the premise, but the story hasn't really panned out for me. I like the stoner best friend the best. But I really doubt I'll keep reading it.

I saw Apocalypse Nerd in Previews but I didn't pick it up. I already order too much, and that one just didn't seem like it would make the cut. Sounds like I made the right choice.

You didn't really miss much with AN. I just realized both the books I posted had geek/nerds as main characters.

Promethea 31 + 32 by Alan Moore. I didn't even know the story or the characters, but those issues just blew my mind.

Hot Gimmick #1 - I've been reading more manga b/c I've been on the go a lot, and it's easier to tote around. It was a really fun manga, similar in theme to Doubt!! It's about some kids who live in company housing and spend time sleeping around and blackmailing each other.

I still haven't picked up any manga yet. CBG is pushing it pretty heavily, and I've seen a couple of books that look interesting, so I may be reading something in the future.

I like some of it, some I don't. Like Western comics. I'll admit a lot of them seem

You should try reading one with vampires.

Well, I have tried Priest, and I liked it. It is the only one I've ever really read.

Another Goon fan is always a good thing.

That's right. The Goon could always use more fans. It's like Veronica Mars that way.
