Borrowed the first volume of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing from a friend.

I'll probably start it after LOST or sometime tomorrow.

I borrowed Sandman: The Doll's House from my local library because someone STILL has Fables Vol. 1 on loan! It's been overdue for three months so it will probably be considered "Lost" soon.

The first volume of Vector was better than I expected. I wasn't sure how they'd do a crossover that spanned that much time, but they made it work without time travel. I might even got out and pick up the Dark Times trades now.

Now I've moved on to:

House of Mystery Volume 1: Room and Boredom

Enjoyed House of Mystery. Not really sure who that was at the end, but I'm not sure I was supposed to know who that was. Between this and Jack of Fables, Sturges is doing some damn good comics right now.

Now I'm reading:

Fantastic Four: Books of Doom
Image

First issue was awesome, maybe I put this off for a bit too long.

Wasn't it supposed to be the bartender at the end?

I just bought this for 60% off at a local comic shop. I owned the issue but 60% isn't bad and I did really like it. What did you think?

I found it for 6 or 7 dollars on ebay after shipping. I've only read the first issue so far but I liked it. The thing with his dad was messed up.

I have Superman: Bottle City of Kandor on my to-read stack. I just ordered X-Men: Storm & Illyana (which collects the Magik mini-series from the 80s). It's been a long time since I've read it (mostly because I hate pulling out my longboxes. :oops: )
