magic armor from book icons

Doonesbury: gets me interested, whatever the politics.

The Long Road Home: One Step At a Time deals only with B.D. getting his leg blown off in Iraq, and the subsequent medical care. It's well-done, whatever you might feel about Trudeau's politics.

I watched a Netflix item last night, North By Northwest, which seemed a bit dated. I noted Hitchcock's cameo at the beginning. I guess that when it came out, it was ground-breaking, but I've lived most of my adult life watching other directors emulating Hitchcock and others.

I picked up a couple of comics at a marked discount, and read them with some mild interest. First one is old, called Muktuk Wolfsbreath: Hard-Boiled Shaman #1 of 3. Pretty good. The next one isOz: The Manga #1, and it seems to be a pretty solid adaptation of the book so far, with reasonable art.

Counting down to Saturday...
