Today, I finished reading a graphic novel based on a novel series that I loved, way back when. This collection is called Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, and it's a good rendition of some of the tales that Leiber wrote about these rogues. Worth a look, either in the collections, or the graphic novel.

Then there was the comics. First was Warren Ellis' book, No Hero #6, which has taken a very curious twist. Gotta keep reading this one.

Then, Drafted went a very odd way, using Obama as a character in a one-shot, called One Hundred Days. Weird. I'm not sure how I felt about this one.

Finally, there's a new book out, which is definitely a Chthulhu mythos piece, called North 40. Creepy, weird, something I could see Lovecraft getting into. For my friends who like these things, I'd hunt this one down.

Finally, while waiting to hear from my beloved, I pulled out a Netflix that's been hanging fire here for a long time; it's a Hitchcock film that I'd never seen called Rear Window, and I loved the camera work in it. Very interesting piece, nicely done. Makes me want to hunt out other Hitchcock films that I've not seen before.
