  1. Ooooh, so much good stuff! What’d you think of the Chang? I’ve been wanting to read that for a while. Also the Bach? That’s on my Kindle.

    I see you enjoyed BATGIRL enough to keep reading! Yay! And SEX CRIMS absolutely rocks.

    Lastly, thoughts on THOR #1?

    Gotta catch up on SAGA…..

    • I enjoyed Stories of Your Life and Others, although not all of the stories worked for me. The ones that did, worked VERY well though. As far as Fortune’s Pawn goes, I thought that was pretty good, even if the action sequences got a little monotonous after a while.
      Batgirl is good! I feel like the crossover events can weaken it sometimes, but Babs is such a sympathetic character.
      As for Thor #1, after all the complaining from the peanut gallery, I found it to be a satisfactory starting issue. Marvel readers confuse me sometimes. I mean, this isn’t the first time Marvel has done something convoluted to switch up one of their superheroes. Superior Spiderman JUST HAPPENED and it was such a success, despite all the nerd rage in the beginning. Give it a try before you trash it.
      And this is shaping up to be my favorite Saga arc.

I mean, this isn’t the first time Marvel has done something convoluted to switch up one of their superheroes, and everyone pretty much loved Superior Spiderman in the end.

      And I think that this was my favorite Saga arc so far.
