Pame said “I’ll start painting again if you start writing” so here we go. I’m not sure what this blog is going to be or where its going to live, but I do know that starting now is better than not starting. So here it is.
On my nighttable
– Send Our Regards to The Atom Smashers
– Get Back in the Box by Doug Rushkoff
– Dream by Stephen Duncombe
On the Pile
– Beautiful Evidence by Tufte
I haven’t finished anything lately, but my attention’s been divided by a bunch of non-fiction, mostly of the analytical sort. Atom Smashers has been a nice retreat to subjective meditations on a subject near to me: childhood love affairs with comic books, and the place in one’s life comics take on during adulthood.
Comics I’ve finished in the last 2-3 weeks
– Kingdom Come (Ross)
– Red Son
– Secret Identity
Not sure why the DC stint started (I’ve never been a big fan of Supes) but Red Son and Secret ID are both really solid re imaginings of the Supes myth.
