Another week, another few more books.

First was Usagi Yojimbo #31: The Hell Screen; I love Stan Sakai's comic series though I don't buy the comic books. I patiently await the collected stories/graphic novels. I still find them very readable. For those not in the know, these comics are tales about a rabbit who is a skillful samurai now ronin in a fictional Japan. They are all excellent, and beautifully rendered. Very much worth reading.

Next was Dark Serpent by Paul Doherty, a mystery novelist with a huge variety of series that he's written. This is one set in the England of Edward II in which a French privateer is laying waste to English shipping while a series of murders among the recently ousted Templars disturbs the peace. Pretty good read.

Finally, there is Osprey Campaign #48: Salamanca 1812: Wellington Crushes Marmont, a critical battle in the British battle against Napoleon. Solid information.

And so it goes...
