i know, i know

I haven't really been blogging for the past couple of months, as editing projects have taken over my life. This is great, make no mistake, but I sure do miss that whole writing thing.

Plus, I can't figure out how to avoid getting the spam comments. Anyone know?

I spend most of my work day and evenings reading poetry or prose about poetry, so I've been reading a ton of comics/graphic serials this summer on the subway commutes.

So far, I've been through:

Whiteout (whole series) Book 1 way better than Book 2.

(whole series) Eh.

(whole series) Quirky, singular. Some issues better than others. Love the Brian Wood/Becky Cloonan combo. I also love their notes at the end of each issue, complete with tracklists of music that inspired writing/drawing each story.

(I think the whole series? I can't tell if it's over?) Super heavy. New York as war zone.

Some dark stuff there. I also just started reading a new series called Scarlet. 2 issues in, it's pretty intriguing--female protagonist, left for dead in shady police bust (and boyfriend killed in same) she's recovered and now out to right the wrongs of the world, by force if necessary. (So far, necessary.) The art is great in this one, too.

Here's a little video that seems just right for tonight. Although may further encourage the Japanese spam...
