Our guest brought gifts. In one case, it was a graphic novel called Xombi, which I found mildly amusing. The protagonist got dosed with nanomachines that rebuild him, so he can't die; afterwards he's inundated with weird encounters of a mystical nature. My problem is the vague whininess of the character, but there are some pretty creative thoughts expressed here. Not bad, not something I would have picked up on my own.
