    I just read the 8th "Walking Dead" trade. That story just never stop delivering. Every time one of the TP's come out, it's the first thing I read and I read from cover to cover before putting it down. It would make a great HBO series. I can't really get into anything else Kirkman writes, but this is oh so delicious.

    Photo -Yes.. I pull hair out while waiting issue to issue.
    I am the same way about The Sword..I really love the Luna brothers. The drawing reminds me of those CPR posters you see in restaurants. Lovely.

    I purchased too many things this month. The best things that I read were
    Starman Omnibus
    The Starman Omnibus vol 1. I missed Starman when it first ran on account of having been a child. No excuses this time. In the first volume you get to see James Robinson find his feet, and rather quickly. At issue 0 I was pretty afraid that, despite the wonderful art, I wasn't going to click with this book. As I say, he found his feet quickly.
    Ghost StoriesCountry Nurse
    Ghost Stories and the Country Nurse by Jeff Lemire

    I don't know how many people have read this series. There has been some pretty serious critical praise, but no accolades could adequately explain how I feel about these series. I find it difficult to talk about these books without resorting to absurd hyperbole, so I'll quite while I'm ahead.

    Maybe I'll talk about my prose books for this month later.

    Reading some oldies:

    Olaf Staplelton - Last & First Men (I like Star Maker and Sirius better)
    Lord Dunsany - King of Elfland's Daughter

    J.A. Mitchell - The Last American
    (Got this handed down from my greatgrandfather, written in 1889. A satire about Persian mariners in the year 2951 who travel to the lost civilization of Mehrika)

    Wanted to thank Orwellseyes for suggesting Joyce Carol Oates' Wild Nights! I just recently finished this and another of her books - Zombie. This woman writes like someone who's been long dead and you can only know them by their great works.
