Dr-FATE-cover-16-f6267 (2)

There’s been no DC comics I want to read in the past two weeks (that changed this week, as you’ll soon see!), and I’m in the middle of unpacking after our move so I have no access right now to old comics that I might want to write about, but when Previews comes out, it’s time to check what’s what! Let’s dig in!

What I bought – 9 December 2015

“For the enemy to be recognized and feared, he has to be in your home or on your doorstep. Hence the Jews. Divine providence has given them to us, and so, by God, let us use them, and pray there’s always some Jew to fear and to hate. We need an enemy to give the people hope. Someone said that patriotism is the last refuge of cowards; those without moral principles usually wrap a flag around themselves, and the bastards always talk about the purity of the race. National identity is the last bastion of the dispossessed. But the meaning of identity is now based on hatred, on hatred for those who are not the same. Hatred has to be cultivated as a civic passion. The enemy is the friend of the people. You always want someone to hate in order to feel justified in your own misery. Hatred is the true primordial passion. It is love that’s abnormal. That is why Christ was killed: he spoke against nature. You don’t love someone for your whole life – that impossible hope is the source of adultery, matricide, betrayal of friends … But you can hate someone for your whole life, provided he’s always there to keep your hatred alive. Hatred warms the heart.” (Umberto Eco, from The Prague Cemetery)

What I bought – 2 December 2015

We lay very still. I could feel the air around us changing, blooming and shimmering like the air over a scorching road. My heart was speeding, or hers was banging against my chest, I’m not sure. I turned Cassie in my arms and kissed her, and after a moment she kissed me back.

I know I said that I always choose the anticlimactic over the irrevocable, and yes of course what I meant was that I have always been a coward, but I lied: not always, there was that night, there was that one time. (Tana French, from In the Woods)

ChannelEvil (2)

Last month, I didn’t get a chance to finish all of these before I went to the convention in Seattle, and then I was busy when I got back. So this month, we get a double dose of trades and books I’ve read and such. That means this is really long, and I apologize for that!

What I bought – 13 June 2012

For, if one can ask and receive eternity from God, then we can take the opposite of eternity – time – only from Satan … (Milorad Pavić, from Dictionary of the Khazars)

Come on - you know you want to sing the song whenever you see this comic! Bolland-tastic! I can't help thinking of porn variations of this title This too Conveniently, the Apocalypse in this book is scheduled for 2012 Kirby Hale - everyone's favorite rogue The Hobgoblin debuts and Marvel reprints a Vulture cover? I'm not quoted on the back of this, which fills me with rage!!!! I'm wary of anything that claims to be 'historically accurate' Computer-generated, but pretty cool-looking!
