Lazy Sunday and the 210 pages

As with every Sunday, the day will be devoted to reading, drinking coffee, and eating ramen.

I am just 210 pages away from getting this year back on track, so my plan is to chip away at the fifth volume of the Saga of the Seven, Of Fire and Night, on page 140, and right on schedule to finish it, probably on Wednesday.

I must say, with no premeditation, this week has become the Jeff Lemire extravaganza.

I read the first two volumes of his Dark Horse series The Black Hammer, a very pulpy feeling super heroes comic book, and a special volume of one of the super villain of this amazing universe, Sherlock Frankenstein, yeah, that’s right, an unlikely combination that Mr. Lemire somehow makes it work.

The only thing I can say about this series is that how the hell it took me so long to read, especially because of the creator and it’s right in the neighborhood of one of my favorite comic book teams, the B.P.R.D.

To close out this week of reading I’ll continue with another comic book written by Jeff Lemire, The Extraordinary X-men, illustrated by the amazing Humberto Ramos.

On a side note, I recommend you to read Gideon Falls and The Underwater Welder, both by Jeff Lemire, and some of the best comic books I have read in quite awhile.

Let’s go get those pages.

Off to read.

(Y-11) some of today’s reading

Early this morning, while having my first caffeine injection of the day, I read the second volume of Hit-Girl’s solo series, this time she visits the great white north,Canada, which is consequently the native country of the writer of this volume, Jeff Lemire.

And at the helm of the art is the Argentinian illustrator Eduardo Risso.

As always Hit-Girl delivers a bloody good time.

The rest of the day went between planning and reading some of the Targaryen family history.

I’ll continue with the fifth volume of DC Comics Rebirth Batman, with the always impressive work of Tom King.

Off to read.


(Y-11) more old school reading

Tonight’s reading will be some good old school X-Men.

And continue with the third issue of the amazing series by Jeff Lemire, Gideon Falls.

In the numbers department, I haven’t tally all of th single issues and graphic novels I read last week, but I am confident that the 25,000-page mark will be exceed.

But just in case, I’ll try to close out the night reading.


(Y-11) two top-notch creatos

This afternoon’s reading will be the first volume of the collaboration between two of the most talented creators working on comic books today.

Taking the helm as writer will be Scott Snyder, recent creator of some of the best Batman stories, and as illustrator, and often writer himself, Jeff Lemire.

This promises to be a great read.
