(Y-12) 30,000 pages and hungry for more

Yesterday was another great day of reading.

I finished Star Wars: Phasma, the origin story of the infamous chrome armored menace of the latest installments of the saga.

I found it really good, especially those little hints to Dune, and the writing by Delilah S. Dawson is top-notch, she keeps you glued to the book.

With these book under my belt, and a couple of graphic novels, I have reached another milestone on this year of reading, 30,000 pages.

This, coming 34 days before of what I originally projected .

Obviously this has given a tremendous confidence boost.

For my next books I will be going back to my favorite independent Mexican publishing house, Paraiso Perdido, with a couple of titles I have been meaning to read for a while.

On the graphic novel front, I’m going back home, that’s to my favorite comic book imprint, Vertigo Comics, responsible for Sandman, Preacher, Transmetropolitan, among many other classics.

To start off, or continue, I’ll finish Daytripper, created by the Brazilian dynamic duo of Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá.

Continuing with the first two volumes of Jason Aaroon’s Scalped.

And to top it off, a manga of Death, Morpheus’ older sister, created by the incomparable Jill Thompson.

Some pretty cool things ahead of me.

40,000 pages, here I come.

For now, I am off to read.


(Y-12) Back for more

I have been away for more than 2 weeks, crazy busy with my day to day life.

Reading was put aside for some days in order to get things done.

But now, I am back in the saddle, and eager to gain some ground.

I am doing a Star Wars run, that started on May the 4th, and it will culminate on may 25, which marks the 43th anniversary of the release of Episode IV .

The tally has been a couple of graphic novels about The Clones Wars.

Just about to finish A New Dawn, the first novel of the new Canon, and directly linked to the amazing animated show Rebels.

Also, I’ll try to read to read the history about Captain Phasma, this of course over the weekend

Tomorrow I’ll do a complete update on my numbers, the only thing I can say is that I am over 28,000 pages an still have about 143 days left of reading for this year.

For now, I am off to read.


(Y-12) May the 4th be with you

Happy Star Wars Day!!!

As you may know I am a huge fan of the Star Wars universe, and around this time each year, I like to go back to a galaxy far, far away.

For this year I’ll try something new, I will start today my Star Wars reading marathon, and it will end on May 25th, which marks the date A New Hope was released back in 1977.

I started this morning with John Jackson Miller’s book A New Dawn, focusing on rogue Jedi Kanan and the staring point of the new canon in the universe of Star Wars books.

Also, some graphic novels from the non-canon, and now dubbed Legends storyline of Star Wars, stories from the Clone Wars era.

Right now I am about half-way thru watching Rogue One, and in all honesty, it is my favorite movie from the more recent releases.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy.

For now, I am off to a galaxy far, far away.

Hope to see you soon
