Great concept, zany style, and a beautiful ending, but the characters are a little shallow. The genies are very funny.

Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds | Gerard Way, Mikey Way
post image

Book 2 of #2024Halfway is Doom Patrol. My introduction to the wild & thought provoking world of DP was via Gerard Way's terrific 3 vol. run. The exact same month I also read Grant Morrison's 6 vol. run. Although I found Morrison to be a bit too cerebral & experimental at times, I appreciated him pushing the boundaries of the form. IMO Way hit all of the right notes in his volumes & really illuminated what makes Doom Patrol so great.

vivastory BONUS: Hailey Piper's Benny Rose Cannibal King is one that I have vey recently read & posted about. At 160 pages, it's just a bit above what I would consider novella length but it is def one that you can read in a sitting or two. For those who like seasonal horror, I would recommend this as it takes place on Halloween. 2d

52/150 Taking place after The Empire Strikes Back, the carbonite encased body of Han Solo is stolen from Boba Fett by the criminal syndicate Crimson Dawn. Jabba assumes that Fett has double crossed him, so he puts a huge bounty on Boba Fett's, leading to an all out war among the bounty hunters. Part of the massive crossover with all of Marvel's Star Wars titles, it does lose some context read without the other parts of the story. ⬇️

RamsFan1963 However, it still makes for an exciting adventure, mixing establish characters like Luke and Chewbacca with newer characters created for the comic. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3d
TieDyeDude I like the current Star Wars comics, but the big crossover events are a bit frustrating. This was okay, but I didn't think it worked well as a stand-alone. They did a better job with the Crimson Reign crossover, IMO. 2d
RamsFan1963 @TieDyeDude I'm reading that next 2d
Bookwomble I thought that was Cyborg Superman Vs Chewbacca! 2d

A Once Crowded Sky: A Novel | Tom King, Tom Fowler
post image

If you're a huge comic book fan you probably know who Tom King is, but back in 2012 he also wrote what is, arguably, the best comic book novel of all time. He was doing a signing at Motor City Comic Con today, so I snuck away from the booth to meet him. He was thrilled that I had an ARC of the book and was utterly delightful. I very rarely wait in lines to meet celebs at shows, but this was a good exception.

TieDyeDude Very cool! I haven't heard of this book, but it sounds interesting. 2d

Murder Mysteries | Neil Gaiman

Graphic edition of Gaiman‘s short story. Spare and dark, but there was little depth for me. Beautiful illustration juxtaposed with an ugly tale. It is a pan with only 2+⭐️.

Death Note, a notebook belonging to a Shinigami death god in hand, Light continues pursuing his goal. At first, Light punishes criminals who have gotten away with it/only received light sentences but as his activities draw attention, he casts a wider net. This is a cat & mouse thriller which has you rooting for the good guys AND the bad ones but it‘s also an interesting examination of the means justify the ends. Can good come from something bad?
