What I’m reading and/or Watching

I picked up a few books at the shop last week…I was hoping to pick up some stuff this week as well but nothing new caught my eye.

Goon #20. Honestly, I go on about this book so much it’s getting creepy… this book is the cat’s pajamas.

BPRD 1946 #1: I’ve been picking up BPRD off and on for a while now. Amazingly, I’ve never read an actual Hellboy Comic… I’ve got to get around to picking up a trade. Anyway, BPRD 1946 is drawn by my former Marvel Bullpen buddy Paul Azaseta… he’s an amazing artist who should be on a major full-time gig… check this one out if you can. He’s like Alex Maleev without the Photoshop. Which is a good thing.

JLA Classified #20. I picked this up on a whim just because it was draw by John Byrne and written by Roger Stern. I know people tend to like Byrne’s “old stuff”, but when I flipped through this one at the shop Superman and Wonder Woman were fighting a big ass monster. So I figured it couldn’t be all that bad. I gotta say, after reading it I was pleasantly surprised. It was a nice old-school story with a bunch of action. I’ll pick up the next issue.

And I picked up the Batman book I lettered. Just to show off. ☺

Stay tuned.

I read that Hellboy will be getting the Archives treatment from Dark Horse this year. I too have never read any so maybe I'll finally give it a try.

Yeah, I really want to. I enjoy the BPRD stuff but mainly for the art... Guy Davis kicks ass and ya gotta support Tall Paul!

Glad you liked our story, Randy.

It's good to know I'm not the only clown saying "the cat's pajamas".
