Reading progress update: I've read 118 out of 189 pages.
Spawn Origins Collection Vol. 2 - Neil Gaiman,Todd McFarlane,Frank Miller,Alan Moore

Resellers want over a hundred bucks for the hardcover of the Art of Todd McFarlane, which I've wanted for a while.   Bought the paperback on Amazon because I am just waaaaay too stressed not to make a couple small purchases to keep me sane.  

 

I'm so tired my eyes hurt.   I'm too stressed, depressed, and disturbed to go to sleep.   So I keep reading Spawn.  I was wondering why issue 10 wasn't reprinted.   Copyright issues with Cerebrus.   I'n not a huge Dave Sim fan, so I was actually okay with that not being reprinted, to be honest. 

 

I notice they did include issue 11 with Angela, as I mentioned before.   I care far more about Angela than anything of Sims.   (And Sims has a huge following, which I am not trying to put down.   I just don't grok his stuff, especially not when compared to Angela/Gaiman.   And issue 11 wasn't reprinted for a while because of other copyright issues with Angela and Gaiman.   So I am not putting down Sim, or his fans, just stating that 11/Angela's hunt is way more important to me, especially given how she comes back later on whereas Cerebrus is a one-shot cameo.    That being said, me enjoying Angela more is a different issue.   I have huge respect for Sim as a creator because he's not untalented and carved out a huge space for himself in comics history, even if I'm not especially fond of his things.   Sim had bouts of mental illness and then went on an anti-feminist tirade and was like 'women are inferior for the most part' so I don't respect that about him.   But I can still respect his creation and the respect people have for it and what it accomplished without liking it.   Did I mention how tired I am, which is why this has gone on this long...)

Ooooh!  Angela.   After a lawsuit, she will eventually be sold to Marvel, where I continue to adore her.

The Graveyard Book
The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book is on a 5.1 reading level (5th grade, 1st month of school). This story is about a toddler named Nobody who is raised by ghosts and other beings that live in the cemetery. Since most of the characters are introduced by their epitaph poem, this gives teachers an opportunity to study this type of poem with their class. From this point, students can write an epitaph for the remaining characters in the story, based off what they know about that character from the story.

Reading progress update: I've read 25%.
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - Terry Pratchett,Neil Gaiman

I'm having a hard time getting into this book. We're reading it for book club and I WANT to finish it but it's just feeling like it takes forever to read because I'm just not into it. I like the premise and the characters are interesting I just don't like the constant voice changing... Ugh.

Norse Mythology
Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

I'm not a fan of Neil Gaiman, but a coworker recommended this one and I needed something like it to complete my summer reading bingo card.

 

Sometimes it seems like Gaiman is going for a myth-y, grand stately feeling with his writing. Other times the writing is very casual. In the long run I didn't mind these swings because the stories are good (and often very funny), and I learned a lot about Norse mythology.
