Necessary Evil (Milkweed Triptych, #3)
4.04
it was ok
So much potential. But oh the problems. First, the structure: by necessity, there is some overlap with the first book in this one, but all three books ...more

Flashpoint

After reading a couple of Marvel's interminable crossovers lately, this was refreshingly to the point. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Phonogram, Vol. 1: Rue Britannia (Phonogram, #1)

I always thought Britpop was pretty much Oasis. This book disabused me of that notion. Still, it wasn't my scene, and all the crunchy details went fly ...more

I must be doing it wrong.

The pieces never came together for me. Yes, the writing is better--on a craft level, this is the first Dresden book to feel f

What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank: Stories
3.73
really liked it
The rating is mainly for "Sister Hills", which was brilliant. A fable and yet psychologically believable. A flawless story in which every piece contri ...more

The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)

**spoiler alert** It's a bit of a long slog at times with all the running and narrow escapes, but remains compelling. I even put it aside for a month ...more

Infinity

it was ok
Early in the series, Iron Man says, "I'm getting tired of end of the world scenarios."

I feel ya, Tony.

There's a lot going on in this event, but charac

Daredevil Visionaries: Frank Miller, Vol. 1

There are hints of Miller's dynamism here, but his artwork is still pretty rough. And though the stories by McKenzie are rather typical for their time ...more

Avengers vs. X-Men: Consequences

really liked it
The dreadful A vs X cross-over that preceded this might perhaps be justified by the Consequences coda. Which means I will be looking for Kieron Gillen ...more

Justice League Dark, Volume 2: The Books of Magic
3.85
it was ok
Starts off as an interesting superhero spin on the magic characters of the DC universe, but runs to the ridiculous fairly quickly.

Swamp Thing, Vol. 4: A Murder of Crows
4.34
it was amazing
Constantine comes into his own, the Parliament of Trees is introduced, and there's even a Crisis crossover. Classic.

Re-reading Dawn certainly confirmed for me that whitewashing book covers is an issue. The 80s book cover I read in high school had a pale white woman ...more

This could easily have been a one joke book: a Victorian novel of mannners with dragons as its main characters. Instead, it's more dramatic than funny ...more
