Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Another graphic novel, not quite up to the quality of some of the others this year, that I just finished was Warren Ellis' book Strange Killings, a zombies-take-over-a-British-prison book. Eh.

I also finished up a couple more comic books; Jack of Fables #10 (not outstanding), and Ultimate Power #5 (this one is a crossover book with Marvel's superheroes meeting JMS' Supreme Power creations; the Marvel folks get most of the page time, and thereby not interesting me all that much as I don't have much in the way of their backstory).

Last night, getting home fairly late, I thought to watch a movie on DVD from Netflix, this time Serpico, and even though the DVD was warped, and I couldn't get more than about a half hour into it, I really didn't mind, as the film was boring me to death. So, into the envelope with it, and I then pulled out and finished another ST:TNG season six disk, including a piece with Q in which Picard "dies" and gets a second chance (eh), and another, the first of two parts set on DS9, with Worf seeking out his father. We'll see how part two goes, but I found it interesting that they tried this crossover between the two shows.

And then, I got to a graphic novel that had been recommended to me, and finished it today, called DMZ: On the Ground, about Manhattan during a civil war in the modern USA. The protagonist is a journalist in the DMZ that is Manhattan, where the two sides fight each other, and the civilians suffer. Fascinating read; I'm going to pursue more of this.
