    I've had a look at that myself. Will give it a go one day!

    Reading God Country atm.

    I read the first issue and feel like I should want to read the rest but something about it didn't quite hook me.

    Enjoying God Country so far. Picked up the trade impulsively. No regrets!

    And that's how chain reactions happen. I keep thinking about picking it up and now been nudged further up the list.

    I got my hands of a copy of first The Arab of the Future by Riad Sattouf. It's very interesting package, focusing on authors childhood memories in Syria, Libya and France. Even though the comic can be pretty brutal at times, it does open a window to Middle East in 70's.

    That sounds like an interesting read for sure.

    Definitely a new modern classic imho. French comics at it's finest.

    Is it available in English? Got me interested!

    Animosity (Marguerite Bennett) is a heck of a read. If you're a fan of anthropomorphised takes on animal intelligence (taken to the extreme here) and post-civilization tales, give it a read. It's vicious, compelling, funny and always waiting to shank you in the heart.

    I picked up the first issue but I recall it had some problems, more to do with the art and layout than the actual writing.

    I like me some anthropomorphised animals, Elephantmen is great, but this was just underwhelming as first issues go.

    I dug the art overall but there were definitely a few layout experiments that confused the story flow. Oh, the structure of the first issue was underwhelming too - it helped that I had the trade and was able to dive right in. The first issue reads a bit more like a zero issue than a proper kick off to the story.

    I have a quibble with a central story conceit too, but it is what it is and that's why I write my own stories.

    Finished some 2000ad trades this past week. Lawless, Absalom and Kingdom all I'd recommend.

    I recently found out Joss Whedon has been invovled in making some comics happening between Firefly and Serenity, called Serenity, and I just read the two first of then! :D

    I'm also rereading Fruits Basket, finally collected all the volumes.

    Did I imagine it, or did they also make a Buffy and Serenity mash-up?

    Last actual comic book I read was Super Sons #3. It's been months since I set foot in the comics shop I usually go to...I'm reading on a last comic pile that I had sitting around since May.

    Last webcomic I read was Night Twink- yesterday evening.

    There are some Buffy comics advertised in the back of the two books I have, but no mash-up... That would be a very weird crossover also, how would that even work?

    Man, I can't find anything on it, but I was sure they did like a merger of ideas comic once. If not I've imagined something quite fun, ha ha.
