It's a pretty hectic week- not much time to read a comic. I do intend on tackling some more Sgt. Rock this weekend.

I also pulled out a graphic novel I picked up at Media Play (RIP) several years back- it's called Sleeping Boy (BTW- DO NOT google that- very VERY bizarre stuff comes up, I was half expecting for the feds to come fast roping into my house and taking me away).

Anyway, it's a very telling story of a German family miving in Berlin circa 1920's- 1945. Paints a very different picture of the Germans as peaceful people. The artistry is very surreal.

I was moved by the cover- it shows the image of a sleeping baby boy with a German Wehmacht helmet over his head.

It was written by an English woman and a Russian did the artwork.

Simon Dark has been a really good read and is going into second print.

Gotham needs a hero who cuts off heads but is still sensitive enough to stop when asked!

Green Lantern and New Avengers are always at the top of my stack and always fun.

The end of the Sinestro War in Green Lantern #25 was a good read, as was Booster Gold #5. I appreciate Geoff Johns' take on these characters and I like that there's a lot more ahead ...especially in the case of Green Lantern.

Chris Ware's Acme Novelty Sketchbook Vol. 2 was interesting to pour over this weekend. And finally... finally... I finished reading League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier. I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as early books, but only because I wanted more actually story with Allan and Mina and a little less Dossier.

Bat Lash #1 was also a decent read, but with a solid creative team of veterans like Aragones & Severin, I figured the book was in good hands. Looking forward to issue #2!
