Getting back into comics. Finished reading the 12 issues of Marvel's 'Secret Wars', which was very enjoyable. Now reading 'Watchmen'.

They were great, Pillow.

They now have an ongoing book: Avengers vs. X-Men.

Decent.

WATCHMEN was awesome. Great artwork, intricate story, interesting characters. I just wish I hadn't seen the film beforehand. It was over 2 years ago, but still.

Now reading the first book of AKIRA. Pretty good so far.

About to start this today. Managed to finish the other 3 books I had been reading last October and gave up on the awful "Less Than Zero". Hoping Relentless is good, should be as Koontz has yet to disappoint me...

Just finished "Feed" by Mira Grant - book one of the "Newsflesh" trilogy, detailing the adventures of a group of young journalists forty years after a zombie apocalypse. (Got book 2 on deck, the title slips my mind at the moment...)

Ye-es! More or le-ess!

A he said/she said comparison.

Next time: a mystery from "You betcha!" land.

I just finished "An Artist in Treason: The Secret Life of General James Wilkinson."
It was a wonderful account of one of the most colorful characters in American history - Wilkinson served as the Commanding General of the U.S. Army under our first four Presidents, and was also "Secret Agent 13" in the Imperial Spanish Secret Service.  He actively betrayed his country for nearly 30 years, but was never punished for it.  He survived four Congressional inquiries and three courts-martial without a conviction, earning him the nickname of "the General who never won a battle or lost a court martial."  A very good read.  The author's last name was Linklater.
