  2. Sports Update

    Giants/Patriots Superbowl. Two teams I really don't care about. However, I will be rooting for the Patriots since they played such a great game today. I'm sure a lot of New England fans will be thirsty for vengeance, five years ago these teams met here, and if I recall correctly that was the year the Patriots had their perfect season ruined at the very end of the road. It should be a fun game.

    In other sports news, it looks like the Republican election process might hold my interest ...

    by , 26 Mar 2011 at 8:04 pm (Juniper Berries, vol. III)
    Yesterday I read all of Spice & Wolf II by Isuna Hasekura and Keito Koume (ISBN 978-0-316-10232-2). See "What a Beautiful Sky..." (August 2010) for my very brief review on the first volume.

  4. Warps in Space and Time

    Yesterday I finished reading "Kapteeni Britannia" (ISBN 978-952-233-067-3). The book is a Finnish-language hardcover collection of comic stories about Marvel's Captain Britain -- more specifically, containing the "Jaspers' Warp" storyline written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Alan Davis, originally published from 1982 through 1984.

    "Jasper's Warp" makes for a very enjoyable reading experience, somewhere halfway between "Superman: Red Son" and ...

  5. "I Wouldn't Mind Having One."

    A few comics deserve to be listed here. Too bad I cannot spend much time on my diary these days.
    ___

    Finished a week ago:

    KIO, SHIMOKU [2005]: Genshiken. The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture. 1. ISBN 0-345-48169-0.

    A must-read for every comics enthusiast who wants to understand what the Japanese otaku subculture looks like from inside. Dōjinshi and statuettes, boys who never get girls, sweating at crowded comikets. In addition ...
