Also finished Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do With God by Greta Christina. The first book on grief and dying I've ever read, actually. Has some good insights. I'd recommend it to any nonreligious (or religious) person who is interested.

And now I've finished EmiTown by Emi Lenox. I picked this up on a whim last month, wanting to try a book I've never heard of. I ended up enjoying it and relating to the author quite a bit.

Read Megg & Mogg in Amsterdam by Simon Hanselmann. I think enjoying Megg, Mogg & Owl is a good indicator that you might be a little **** up.

THIS IS VAL'S THREAD NOW.

Read The Last Days are Here Again by Richard Kyle. It explores millennial and apocalyptic beliefs in the West throughout history. Well-researched and informative, though not especially well-written, and has an odd habit of repeating things.

Ooh. What'd you think, dove?
---------------
I read 'The Goon-------Occasion of Revenge'.

You know, Goon is one of best comics in the world (this volume is no exception), but I don't know how much more of it I want to read. It's really getting brutal, and awful. (Although I was starting to think that back around volume 6, and this one is number 14. Guess I've come this far, can't just walk away from the story now.)

Just glad these damn things only come out once or twice a year, and that there's plenty of fun comics inbetween to cleanse the palate.

(EDIT: Huh. Evidently I put off readin #14 so long that #15's just come out.)

I've never heard of The Goon, I'll have to look it up.

Ms. Marvel was great. Beautiful art. I'm glad the new Ms. Marvel is Muslim. The only thing I'd complain about is how her superpower is to turn into a skinny, blonde who is "more beautiful" in Kamala's eyes. I get that the whole message is "be true to yourself" but it's an odd way of getting there. I hope they explain how she got her powers. Overall, a great book with awesome characters.

Great series. Eric Powell's one of the best artists in comics today, and The Goon is only getting better and stronger, if not necessarily pleasanter.

It's hard to see the series heading for a happy ending.

Got a few more done. Read Chainmail Bikini, an anthology of short stories by women gamers (including video games, tabletop games, trading card games, LARPing, etc.). There's a large number of authors included, so there's a lot of variety in artistic style and storytelling. I'm glad I picked this one up.

Also read What Ifs? of American History, which examines pivotal moments in American history and speculates what the outcome may have been had things gone differently. (For example, what if the Mayflower had not sailed, or what if JFK had not been assassinated.) It's a collection of essays written by several authors, which results in differences in narrative that can be a little confusing at times. Some essays focus almost entirely on the historical events and only touch on the "what ifs", some essays begin with the history and then jump into the speculation, and others are just speculation from start to finish. If you're not already familiar with the subject at hand, some chapters may leave you wondering where the facts end and the conjecture begins. Also, some essays get a little too speculative. (One chapter begins with William Pitt the Elder sticking around long enough to defuse the American Revolution, and ends with America as a Commonwealth nation, the French and Russian Revolutions being avoided, no World Wars, and most of the world united under a benevolent British Empire.) But nonetheless, a moderately interesting read.

Finally, read the first Hark! A Vagrant collection. I had forgotten how funny this comic is. Gotta read the second collection now.

Read The Complete Cartooning Course by Steve Edgell, Brad! (sic) Brooks and Tim Pilcher. As the name implies it runs the gamut from sketching to character design to composition to digital work to art supplies. The entries themselves are very skimpy, however, barely scratching the surface of each subject. This may be understandable given the range of topics the book attempts to cover, but even so, most of the advice it gives just isn't very good. This book might be an okay place to start for someone who knows next to nothing about cartooning, but there was very little I was able to take away from it.
