I can't remember the last time I got into a proper argument on this site.

I'm too mellow now.

I'm rereading this classic by Busiek and Perez. It's every bit as awesome as it was when I first read it.

I read Batman and Robin Vol 3: Death of the Family, dug it as expected. Now I am onto Marvel 1602, which is good but different and wordy as hell.

Damn, it's been awhile since I posted in here about what books I am reading. Nothing like a slipped disc and a day of rest to get you back into the habit. I've had the second library edition of Fear Agent sitting on one of my bookshelves since it arrived a few months ago. So what did I do? Chose to continue putting off reading it so that I could reread the first volume of course! And after all the shit that I gave Keb about not reading the first volume. :oops: :P

Image

Fear Agent Library Edition Volume 1: It's been a little over a year since I read the first half of Rick Remender's spectacular sci-fi odyssey and while I don't usually like to reread a series so quickly after reading it for the first time, I can safely say that this series is still as entertaining the second time through as it was the first. The art is fantastic and the fact that Remender refuses to be bound by what we consider to be a more conventional view on science fiction is both refreshing and in my opinion necessary.

This was great, I'm so glad there are two weird westerns featuring Death as a main character right now. I really am.

Fear Agent Library Edition Volume 2: I can safely say now, having read the entirety of this series, that outside of the length of time it took me to read it, my only regret is that it is over. Damn, from start to finish Fear Agent was absolutely what Rick Remender wanted it to be; a no limits sci-fi story with "stones" and the second half of the series was no exception. The story went to places and in directions that you never would have expected it to go. There is a damn spaghetti western in the middle of an epic space adventure for crying out loud! Remender took risks and huge leaps of faith with this series and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that it paid off in the end.

Well, the best thing that I can say about this whole back ordeal is that all of the "rest" that I am supposed to be getting has really allowed me to catch up on some reading that I have been meaning to do for ages.

Image

The Flash by Geoff Johns Omnibus Vol. 3 - Like the second volume of Fear Agent, this book has been sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time. All in all, just like the other Flash by Geoff Johns books, volume 3 is a good read but I found myself putting off finishing the book, maybe because I was subconsciously trying to preserve what little time Wally West had left.
