Daredevil, Vol. 1!!!
Daredevil, Vol. 1 - Paolo Rivera,Marcos Martin,Mark Waid

This is another one of my Amazon Prime Reading reads.

 

I liked this one a lot. I didn't LOVE it, but I really liked it. It was entertaining as hell and just fun to read. I only know the Netflix version of Daredevil, so I was really excited to read this version and I sure as heck wanna continue reading this.

I didn´t watch Alien...
Aliens 30th Anniversary: The Original Comics Series - Mark Verheiden,Mark A. Nelson

... but I should have. Instead I have watched the movie Life. If you don´t know that movie, it´s the one were Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhall and others are acting like complete morons, even though they are supposed to be scientist. These idiots picked up an ancient life form from Mars, whose main objective is to kill them all (and to get to earth). Due to the stupidity of the astronauts / scientist and the survival instict of the alien, all hell breaks loose on the ISS.

Honestly, I cheered for the alien, which is so wrong because it was so boring and non-threatening. The people in this movie were just so dumb, I was on the verge of throwing stuff at my tv and don´t get me started on the ending. I hated the ending.

 

Coming back to the one and only Alien, the real deal, threatening in all it´s glory. I´m reading the graphic novel for the halloween bingo. The story takes place after the event of the James Cameron movie Aliens, Newt and Hicks have survived and are forced to go after the Alien again. I´m about halfway through and I´m enjoying the story and the artwork with its drawings in black and white.

My Favorite Thing is Monsters by Emil Farris
My Favorite Thing Is Monsters - Emil Ferris

 

My Favorite Thing is Monsters is a gorgeously illustrated graphic novel. Karen Reyes is a young girl coming of age in 1968 Chicago when her neighbor is murdered, her mother is diagnosed with breast cancer, Martin Luther King is shot and the local mob boss goes to jail.

 

Peppered in between all that are Karen's notebook drawings of all kinds of things-her neighborhood, her brother and mom, and the covers of pulp magazines. She also likes to draw her version of popular paintings which her brother takes her to see at the local museums. All of her drawings are on lined notebook paper and all I can say about them is that they are stunning. All in pen, but not all in color-each and every drawing is so detailed you can stare at them for a long while and continue to find new things.

 

       

 

  Never let anyone's darkness provoke you into your own midnight.

 

 

Tackling subjects like racism, homosexuality, the Holocaust and so much more, this graphic novel adds up to more than the sum of its parts. Highly recommended!

Burnt out on this already
Reference and Information Services: An Introduction, 5th Edition (Library and Information Science Text) - Melissa A. Wong,Linda C. Smith

It's not so much that I get burnt out for long periods of time, but after an hour or so I need a short break.   Thus posts.  I think I'm going to finish up the short digital read, and maybe read a comic, then finish this.  Or come close to it, at least!

I'm almost done with chapter five, and chapter six is pretty short.   After that, I have half of a five page net reading, and I have to print out this syllabus.   (Tuesday's homework is just reading the syllabus.)

 

So I'm almost done for Monday.   

 

Also, I have to laugh: 

 

SUSHI provides raw usage data to libraries.   

 

And all I could think was 'actual sushi provides me with raw fish.'  I so want sushi now...
