Flashes of a great novel throughout, but not nearly as clever as it thinks itself to be. If Bazell wasn't trying so hard to be "cool," he might actual ...more

Booster Gold, Volume 6: Past Imperfect
3.68
did not like it
Ugh.

Thankfully, there's only one more (forthcoming) trade of Giffen's writing to slog through before Dan Jurgens returns to the book.

Castle

This one started off strong -- nicely ominous and foreboding.

I tried.
I really did.
But I just couldn't stick with this one.

A really horrible novella placing the Smiths' album in the center of a worse-than-generic coming of age story.
