Dead Dog Cat


Last night I finished reading a slim volume called A Week at the Airport by Alain de Botton, which combines description with some ruminations of philosophy as sparked by the author spending a week living on the campus of Heathrow Airport in Britain. He does a very good job of explaining many aspects of airport operations while sparking the imagination. Worth a look.

At various points during the weekend, I spent a bit of time reading a few comic books.

First was Fairest #1 - it's a spin-off from Fables, and not bad, for an initial comic. I think I'll follow for a while, though honestly I've never followed spin-offs from that series for very long.

Second was Beyond the Fringe: Peter and the Machine #1, written by the actor who plays Peter on Fringe. I found this one dissatisfying, though I gather this was a one-off. I'm not returning to this or any similar books.

Finally, The Manhattan Projects #01 - No. Not even.

Oh, well.
