I’ve been reading some really good comics lately and it has helped as I recover from my depression. I have been tweeting about some of the stories but for the most part I want to mention them here. My current loves are: Clean Room, Giant Days, Postal, Saga, Mae, Black Hammer, Harrow County and Dept. H. I tried some new comics recently, “Spell on Wheels” and “Seven to Eternity”. So far I have been quite pleased with both. I imagine as I heal and am more myself, there will be more books added to my list. For now, this is good I think.
In between playing Pokémon Go (yes I still play though Niantic keeps updating the fun right out of it), I have been reading some old stuff and some new stuff. I revisited Bone, a truly wondrous tale by the great Jeff Smith.
At one point I had 4 copies of the one volume edition, I gave one away (to encourage more fans), yet still have three. One is a reader copy, the one read through most recently and man did I finger those pages (haha). One is a limited edition leather volume with lovely gold foil. My last copy is part of a limited edition box set that I never opened. I adore the thing too much to take the plastic off.
What starts off as a fun-filled silly adventure morphs into a ‘Lord of the Rings’ rival. It’s entertaining, full of drama and imaginative. Still re-reading Bone got me excited to finally read my copy of Bone: CODA. I love that it picked up right where the original tale left off. As a fan of this story and its creator, what a great way to start a new chapter.
