Wondering what that painting on the mantle is, doesn’t look like one of Twombly’s.

Mini-Review: Blade of the Immortal

I read 6 volumes (because the first couple volumes of a manga are usually sub-par for long series, and I picked them up used with some Powell’s credit) and while the artwork is stylistically very pretty (the use of pencil is interesting for a manga), I didn’t find myself wanting to keep reading it. The characters are all pretty annoying (and often I had trouble figuring out who was who). The fight scenes are often confusing in a bad way (I can appreciate confusing fight scenes when the confusing is being conveyed as an element integral to the chaos of a quick fight, but not when it seems like the artist just isn’t really doing a good job). The story is too gory and waffles about its morality a bit in a “have your cake and eat it too” way that isn’t successful (unlike, say Vagabond which I think is more successful and deep on such things). I also felt like there was not much to the setting, no sense of place beyond the general time period and country.

Guess I’ll just go back and read Lone Wolf or Vagabond if I want something in this genre (or rewatch Seven Samurai), and really, why would I need more.

Rob Clough off of High Low writes a nice review of The Homesick Truant’s Cumbrian Yarn 1.

He brings attention to two things I’ve worked especially hard on: the grid and my writing.  So I’m pleased with that.

The writing is definitely something I’ve noticed in the new series. In a positive way, I mean. If you few followers haven’t been following Oliver’s new series you should give it a try. I just got the 5th one in the mail, he is cranking these out and they are really good overall and each one has a a couple spreads that just make me stop in my tracks (to admire).

Guess which special boy has an Appleseed spinoff on the stands today! It’s the creator of Sexy Voice and Robo, running the game in Kodansha’s monthly Morning 2, starting now.
(Appleseed α, Iou Kuroda)

I would read that. I miss Appleseed.

All my memories from the House in Sønderhå collected on one poster.

I really like this. Great location based comic.

My new book, The Hospital Suite, will be debuting officially at SPX, but D+Q will have 45 advance copies at San Diego — with exclusive signed bookplates!

Too early to say “book of the year”?
