Another book that caught my attention only because I love the Assassin's Creed games. Yes, this is the same order that inspired the one in the games, though naturally very different. Telling the real story of the historical Assassins is complicated b...more

What's this? A major comic book event that's good? Sure, it happens, but it's rare. It helps when you start from a solid premise that brings together threads that have obviously been years in the making. Granted, I haven't read all of those years of...more

More AvX. Ugh. It isn't all bad, but I would have so much rather that the event didn't have to intrude on this book. Oh well. But whatever you do, don't skip this volume! You'll miss the hilariously brilliant Doop issue. The whole thing is worth it f...more

God, I hate AvX. It's a shame that Wolverine and the X-Men had to get tangled up in it, but there was really no way around that. This series in particular is very tied up in the events of the main AvX series, which makes this really hard to follow un...more

“Honestly, if you're given the choice between Armageddon or tea, you don't say 'what kind of tea?”
Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman
“We...we could be friends.'

We COULD be rare specimens of an exotic breed of dancing African elephants, but we're not. At least, I'M not.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Victor Hugo
“Relegated as he was to a corner and as though sheltered behind the billiard table, the soldiers, their eyes fixed upon Enjolras, had not even noticed Grantaire, and the sergeant was preparing to repeat the order: 'Take aim!' when suddenly they heard a powerful voice cry out beside them, 'Vive la Republique! Count me in.'
Grantaire was on his feet.
The immense glare of the whole combat he had missed and in which he had not been, appeared in the flashing eyes of the transfigured drunkard.
He repeated, 'Vive la Republique!' crossed the room firmly, and took his place in front of the muskets beside Enjolras.
'Two at one shot,' he said.
And, turning toward Enjolras gently, he said to him, 'Will you permit it?'
Enjolras shook his hand with a smile.
The smile had not finished before the report was heard.
Enjolras, pierced by eight bullets, remained backed up against the wall is if the bullets had nailed him there. Except that his head was tilted.
Grantaire, struck down, collapsed at his feet.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Alison Goodman
“You are wrong when you say there is no power in being a woman. When I think of my mother and the women in my tribe, and the hidden women in the harem, I know there are many types of power in this world...I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life? I don't think I could do it.”
Alison Goodman, Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

Nina LaCour
“Dylan, in her skintight black jeans, safety-pinned shirt, and bulky armbands, with her hair sticking out in every direction and that black freshly smeared around her eyes, doesn't just smile, doesn't just walk toward Maddy and put her arms around her. No. Instead, every muscle in her whole body seems to lose all tension, her step forward resembles a skip, and she lets out a hey that might as well say, I love you, you are so beautiful, no one in the world is as amazing as you are.
Nina LaCour, Hold Still
