Bone: Coda
BONE: CODA 25th Anniversary Special - Jeff Smith,Stephen Weiner

I had no idea what this book was when I placed it on hold. I just saw another hold copy and knew I needed to check it out since I'm reading my way through Bone this month.

 

If you're looking for more information on comic book publishing history and how Bone fits into that then this book is for you. I wasn't really feeling it, so I stopped reading after Jeff Smith's part (the end of Part I). It is interesting how much comics have changed in the last 25 years.

 

I did enjoy the comic at the beginning. If you enjoyed the series and want more of the Bone cousins it's probably worth checking Coda out from your local library to read that story.

 

Also, this is my first DNF of the year (according to my spreadsheet). That's pretty good for me.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
To Kill a Mockingbird, 50th Anniversary Edition - Harper Lee

How does one review a classic when so many people have reviewed it before? This was a beautiful book, even though the unfairness depicted in it hurts.

 

My only complaint is that there was one disturbing thing that was not addressed. In the trial scene, Tom Robinson said that Mayella Ewell said she'd never kissed a grown man before and "what her pa do to her don't count." I suppose it's because the trial was for Tom Robinson, not Mr. Ewell, and in that time, most people wouldn't turn on a white man while they had a black man to browbeat, but I found the implication to be extremely disturbing and would have liked to have seen the town turn on Mr. Ewell for sexually molesting his daughter, even if they wouldn't turn on him for physically beating her or for bearing false witness against an innocent man.
