Huge thanks to John for sending me an early birthday present: Joss Whedon’s futuristic Slayer comic Fray. I wasn’t sure I’d like it – I don’t think I’ve read a real comic book in my life – but as soon as I opened it I couldn’t put it down. I read the whole thing in one sitting tonight. The artwork was amazing, the pace was tight, and the writing was vintage Joss. I just loved how… cinematic it was. I really hope they do a sequel. Meanwhile, do any of you have any more suggestions for comics or graphic novels? I was thinking of trying Neil Gaiman’s Sandman books next. Are they good?
Only nineteen days til I turn 27. Does that put me in my “late twenties”? I don’t wanna think about it.
