Joss Whedon’s “Fray”

FrayHuge 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.

  1. Mid late twenties maybe?

    I have a pressie planned for you as well. I’m making it soon but might not be 100% ready for your b’day. Will let you know soon.

  2. I used to be into comics but gave it up as it was coming too expensive and I wasnt reading em all. Got a massive tower of em back in Glasgow.

    I think also it started to get very commercial then as well so you’d have a comic of the one char then all of a sudden spin offs would happen. This would happen for most of the comics. Money grabbing wonkers.

    Ahh well back to the closet now ….

  3. Not to comic or graphic novel, but a friend and I just put The Red Tent on reserve at the library, so will be soon reading and discussing that one. (In case the book club was interested in coming out of hiatus.)

  4. The Red Tent is fabulous! Every woman I know that has read it, loved it.

    And I’m glad to know you’re waiting to hit the ‘late twenties’ until @ least 27. 26 is looming on the horizon for me and I don’t like it. 25 was good to me, but in my head I should have my grown-up stuff together @ 26. And really, I just don’t see that happening in the next 4 months. 🙂 But I’ll try
