Reading Kelly Green by Stan Drake & Leonard Starr. Such beautifully rendered and colored panels.

Oh my! That sure brought some memories. I've read a couple of Kelly Green stories ages ago. In a European magazine, Totem, probably.

Read Hawkeye vol 2 from the library. Lord do I wish they had a good writer on this, the art is just stunning.

No new singles for me this week, so I picked up volumes 2 and 3 of "Locke and Key".

Feels, to me, a lot like "Lost" did on TV or "Morning Glories Academy" does -- one of those 'there's lots of weirdness going on, and we only see bits and angles and can't quite piece it all together' series.

Except... strangely, I get the impression he's not actually playing total Calvinball-- like Hill's *actually* worked out what's going on behind the scenes and what happened in the past that left so many scars in the present. I guess with the series weeks away from its final issue, other people probably know if it actually pays off or not, but I'm mostly-enjoying it so far.

And Rodriguez's art looks like nobody else publishing today.

Read the mini-comics Squid mailed me.

I liked the Nix mini-comix. Everyone loves Bus Stop Ned. I had to lead a group discussion on graphic novels and just so happened to have Squid's envelope in my bag so I showed everyone these comics. They really liked them.

The GN Closing Doors was nice even though the end felt a bit abrupt. I liked the idea behind it but niche record stores are kind of interesting these days. The ones I know of are doing quite well at least now. Still, it was a bleak and sad story.

Duh Studge was really annoying. I liked the Ragged Rider one because it was cute and quite SCUD-like.

Young Avengers vol 1. is the absolute drizzling shits. I did need to stop reading shit just because the library has it.

Yeah, I like his style. Locke and Key always has good art.

If anybody is reading the Unwritten still "Tommy Taylor and the Ship That Sank Twice" is excellent. I need to dig up Mike Carey's X-men stuff because he is excellent on this and Lucifer was also great.

I was okay through most of Hickman's FF run but I got to the first few volumes of Future Foundation and I am lost. Did I just not pay enough attention or is this drawing from stuff outside his run? I am thinking maybe War of Kings?

The bookshop at Gothenburg's art museum had a big clearance sale, and I was able to pick this up for 40 SEK:

(That's about $5 or so).

Read lots of stuff last week. Working my way through Battling Boy, for one thing. I like it, but I wish the book's format was larger. I know P.P. works on big sheets, it'd be nice to have larger repros of the panels.

Also:

Nick Mandaag's The Libertarian and Streakers.

Lose by Michael Deforge, recent winner of many awards. You shguld probably buy anything by him you can find.

Image

Kus! An anthology of Latvian cartoonists...still working my way through that one on the can in the mornings.

St. Cole by Noah Van Sciver. Part of a larger work to come. Interesting story so far. Cole and his wife remind me a little of Jude and Amy. This is Cole's mother-in-law, she comes to live with them:

Image

The Caterer...wow. I won't say anything more about this, but it was one of the strangest reading experiences of my comics-reading-life. People say Morrison was on drugs, man...they just don't know. I dare you to read this lost gem:
