Want to talk about some nifty piece of media that isn't Neil-related? This is the place to do it.

Never read it before, but have started The Count of Monte Cristo. Should be a narrative tide to carry me through winter.

Just finished S.A. Chakraborty's Daevabad trilogy. Wow, just wow. All the feels. Have the series in e-book, but am now planning to get them in hardcover too.

Finished the third (and final?) book of DCs Black Label Hellblazer: Rise and Fall. Ended a bit weak.

Immortal Hulk #43 has Disney crapping themselves because the jeweler Banner buys items from has a Jewish star in their window. I don't see any antisemitism here but Disney's editing the star out of reprints and digital copies. *shrugs* Future collector's item? The story is pretty much filler until the next big fight so this is the only interesting thing about #43, other then a psych profile of Hulk's alter ego Joe Fixit.

I downloaded a sample of a book called The Sand Sea. Dunno where I saw a blurb about it. It’s a bit alternate history/universe, late 1800’s, so, colonialism, empires, trains, trade, there’s a prophecy, lots of pretty people.

It’s engaging enough, and it was not costly, so, this will do until the next WandaVision.

I am about halfway through. It’s bogging down a bit, because there are several groups converging on the same place, so it’s all travel descriptions, blah blah blah.

Plus, my shoulder still hurts far too much to knit, and so I have nothing to do with my hands. I focus better if my hands are busy.

Started We Hunt the Flame and am really enjoying it thus far. Needed a little breather from Monte Cristo.

I comick boocked! Slim pickins this week, no Immortal Hulk, no The Green Lantern. I'm anxiously waiting for the DC-Heroes-that-are-technically-not-DC-Heroes-in-the-Marvel-Universe Heroes Reborn series coming out later this year.

Bought the reprint of Immortal Hulk #43 and yep, the offending religious symbol has been removed.

Whew! Now I can sleep soundly again!

Edit: also snatched #12 of The Green Lantern, Season Two. I hope they keep the Seasons going. I like this book more than Sporky likes pink lillies.
