What I bought – March 2014 selections

cannon10001

On the narrow Augesd dam where for so many years the old miller had been accustomed to sit in his tasseled cap peacefully angling, while his grandson, with shirt sleeves rolled up, handled the floundering silvery fish in the watering can, on that dam over which for so many years Moravians in shaggy caps and blue jackets had peacefully driven their two-horse carts loaded with wheat and had returned dusty with flour whitening their carts – on that narrow dam amid the wagons and the cannon, under the horses’ hoofs and between the wagon wheels, men disfigured by fear of death now crowded together, crushing one another, dying, stepping over the dying and killing on another, only to move on a few steps and be killed themselves in the same way. (Leo Tolstoy, from War and Peace)

Page-by-page with Infinity #1

08-16-2013 01;36;32PM

It’s been a few years since I wanted to read a Big Two event, and I don’t know if I’ll read this entire saga, but I figured it was time for a page-by-page breakdown of at least the first issue, like I used to do back in the olden days (of 2011, that is). Plus, as an added bonus, I’m doing this as a live blog – I have not cracked open Infinity #1 yet, so these thoughts will be kind of loose and completely raw, just like your mom. HEY-OOOHHHHHHHHHH! Let’s do this thing! MASSIVE SPOILERS BELOW, in case you couldn’t guess. If you haven’t read Infinity yet, grab your copy and follow along! If you don’t want to read Infinity, well … read this instead and you’ll know exactly what happens!
