been reading graphic novels lately.

blankets was pretty ok, kind of hackneyed though. the love story aspect of it was just so childish and stupidly handled. his childhood was pretty powerful.

i see now why persepolis is like a gold standard when it comes to autobiographical graphic novels as it was just an utter joy to read. i cried very good cries at so many parts. it was truly a remarkable story of a remarkable life lead by an equally remarkable woman. i hope her other works are as good.

im almost done with Fun Home and i have to say I'm just not feeling it. I feel so detached from the experience because Bechdel would rather saunter around showing off her vocabulary and literary reference knowledge than actually get me interested in any of her characters presented. the art style is cool, if you like doonesbury that is.

Yeah, Fun Home was nice enough, but it's not really anything special. I don't know why it's so hard to get that particular medium right. Is it because, comparatively, so few people are actually writing in graphic novel form?

Have you read Maus? It's not a small, personal story, but it'll destroy you like any good Nazi concentration camp story will.

I just finished Chuck Palaniuk's "Haunted". I was intrigued because it was a novel comprised of short stories about people who were living together. It started out nice then it got a little disturbing...even by my standards!

Fun Home is easily my favourite non-superhero graphic novel.

Not that I've read many.

Yeah I forgot to mention that I read Maus (before fun home actually) and that it basically broke my in two and almost made me believe the holocaust actually happened.

Barnes & Noble is having a sale right now,

They have these really awesome leatherbound editions that I'm snatching up, I got these three:





All three for less than $40! I wanted the complete collection of Hans Christian Anderson, but those are sold out. I'll have to get that one at a later time I suppose.

A nice sci-fi short story about the Singularity.
