AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend, I’m trying out Every part Sucks! By Michael Sweater. It’s printed by Silver Sprocket and has stickers! Then so far as prose goes, after just lately studying Leonard Nimoy’s guide I Am Spock, I’m going to take a look at Leonard by William Shatner (with David Fisher).
TAIMUR DAR: Seems to be like up to now week I’ve formally developed a case of Batman Fever! Persevering with my binge of all issues Caped Crusader from final week with “Batman: Hush” storyline from Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee. I haven’t learn it in over a decade and meant to do a radical reread again in 2019 after I did press protection for the animated adaptation however I by no means bought an opportunity. I positively have an curiosity within the extra detective Batman after the watching the current movie.
JOHANNA DRAPER CARLSON: Though I gave up maintaining with the Hellboy mythos way back, I’m desperate to attempt The Home of Misplaced Horizons as a result of it’s billed as a locked-room homicide thriller investigated by two paranormal detectives. I do know there’s going to be a supernatural facet – it’s a Hellboy spin-off – however I’m hoping there’s sufficient of the traditional thriller fashion to fulfill. It’s written by Chris Roberson and illustrated by Leila del Duca, whose work on Sleepless I adored. Within the non-comics world, I’m studying Wisconsin Supper Membership Cookbook: Iconic Fare and Nostalgia From Landmark Eateries by Mary Bergin. I noticed a documentary on this distinctive restaurant fashion just lately, and it’s made me inquisitive about how this old style fashion of eating out has survived. Additionally, it’s made me hungry for prime rib accompanied by a relish tray, tacky hash brown potatoes, and a pink squirrel (an ice cream dessert cocktail).
