Well, I finished George RR Martin‘s A Game of Thrones a little while back and it was amazing but I thought I’d have a change. Well, that lasted all of a week and a part of a chapter of a different book, before I was back onto Martin and A Clash of Kings! So compelling. I love the Black Watch in this second book. Can’t recommend it all hightly enough.
I am however, also reading a few other things. Namely
- Tintin in America by Herge – I don’t think I’ve read this one in its entirety. Herge’s mastery of storytelling with images is evident at this early stage in Tintin’s genesis. [tintin.com]
- The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. Vol 1 by Eijii Otsuka. The premise for this manga of students at a Buddhist university gaining employment helping dead bodies attain the next level of reincarnation after gruesome murders is inspred. Art to die for by Housui Yamazaki. [Dark Horse]
- Biomega #01 by Tsutomu Nihei. Sci Fi/Horror with a virus turning the inhabitants of planet earth into zombie-like creatures, motorbikes and a bear! Very little words, very cool imagery. [Anime News Network]
