Books!

Once again, thanks to What the Book? for my English language literary needs.

I’m finishing Ann Leckie’s Ancillary trilogy, Amitav Ghosh’s Ibis trilogy, and then kind of a curveball, the complete The Puma Blues (sucker is fucking heavy).

Puma is a comic series that ran from 1986-1989, a dystopian vision of environmental collapse before people were really talking about global warming.  The writer went on to be famous for creating the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the artist became famous in the underground comic scene (Gaiman’s Sandman, for one).  They were basically kids at the time.

Last year Murphy and Zulli actually put together 40 new pages to “finish” the series, and now it’s mine.

    And now, Puma was nominated for an Eisner award! Shameless self-promotion…I was the editor on that collection. Glad you are enjoying it!
