Another remarkable week in the world of comics. Is there a week that goes by where there isn’t a new title or another addition to an already great run? Here is what I am planning on getting this week. First are two series that I am so happy with so far and go right to the top of my reading list when they come out.
The next one is a book that at first is strictly because of the title. One of the best titles I have seen in quite some time!
I bought a book the other day for my oldest and I to each read.It is called Nemo by an artist named Bruno.
It’s based on the book Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea book by Jules Verne and although I have never read the book, I have seen the 1954 film numerous times. This book is so close to that film and it brought back so many memories of watching the movie as a kid. The graphic novel is beautifully illustrated and reminds me of a cross between Herge and Mignola. It is such a fun read and I am proud that my son has read it around 5 times so far. It feels good to pass that eyes-wide-open fascination that is the underwater world of Nemo to the young lad.
It looks like I finally did it! After what seemed to be days staring at the screen on my son’s laptop, I believe that I figured out how to put items up for sale on the ol’ website. Hopefully with that figured out I will be able to hit the ground running in the new year. I am going to make an effort to keep updating!
This is the first post on my new website. It is still under construction as I figure out how to use technology. I am quite comfortable with a knife but find myself struggling with computers. The types of things that I will be posting about are new pieces that I am working on and I will eventually have a store as well…. Fingers crossed. First up is an unpainted Dredd that I finished the other night. I am in the process of painting him now and am typing as I wait for the first coat to dry. As soon as I figure out how to include photos, I will.
