Been on a comic kick lately and I forgot just how good some of these were. This is a dark scenario that is full of humor and tragedy. I enjoy this comic every single time. 💜

#FellowshipOfTolkien

I have to say, it is a lovely book, with some very interesting recipes ☺️

Lindy Are you planning to try any of the recipes? 3w
JazzFeathers @Lindy l certainly will. There's one for shortbread with molasses. Molasses is not common here in Italy. I found it the first time in my life in an organic shop last month and l want to try it. But I'm sure I'll make other recipes too. 3w
Lindy @JazzFeathers I remember trying to find molasses when I was living in France—and I wasn‘t successful. 3w

#FellowshipOfTolkien

I can resist everything but temptation!

A friend of mine sent me some photos of this book.
I'll have to say l did resist a whole 5 minutes before l ordered it 😌

Daisey Just now seeing this post . . . a friend gave this to me for Christmas. I‘ve been perusing and considering some recipes to try. 2w
JazzFeathers @Daisey What recipes are you considering? We may do a contest 😜 1w
Daisey @JazzFeathers So far, I've only marked the spiced cranberry & pear muffins (although I may use apples) to make soon and the strawberry & lavender shortcakes for early this summer when strawberries are in season. 1w
JazzFeathers @Daisey l will check those. They sound yammy 😁 1w

Batman: the Imposter | Mattson Tomlin

I have read a few of the DC Black Label volumes & this is one of the best I've read in awhile. Published last year this feels like it very much takes place in the same universe as Matt Reeves' film, although there are throwbacks to previous movie installments sprinkled throughout. Batman is out of favor with the GCPD & is being actively pursued after footage surfaces of who they think is the Batman killing criminals. The real star of the gn 👇

vivastory is the fantastic artwork by Jeff Lemire collaborator Andrea Sorrentino (Gideon Falls). I also really enjoyed the detective aspect of this work, as both Batman & the GCPD detective are trying to solve different mysteries. I will say that the story itself feels a bit like Batman Movie Fanfiction, but it is so cleverly constructed & seamless & there are some fresh spins on the Dark Knight mythology that I really did not mind whatsoever.

This spinoff from the original DCeased, starring villains and antiheroes, better fits Taylor's sensibilities, but it still suffers from the Flippancy Problem: it feels arbitrary which characters live and which die. Mostert's art is pretty good as long as you don't look too closely at the faces. There are some funny lines, but Taylor strains a little too hard for the joke. The ending is very sweet.

This was an interesting read. I haven‘t really ever read any graphic novels before, but I found this to be a compelling story. I‘ve always been a fan of Batman and very much enjoyed reading this story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Did anyone else enjoy the Barnes & Nobel 50% off all hardcovers sale? My husband and I were in Anchorage and luckily caught the sale after returning from visiting his family for Christmas. #barnesandnoble #cookbooks

If you want to explore the darker aspects of a character‘s personality, you hire Frank Miller to write the story.
