What I bought – March 2014 selections

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)

Comics You Should Own – Sandman

Yes, I know I call this “Comics You Should Own” and not “Comics You Already Own,” but let’s check this out anyway – I hope I have something new to write about it! Plus: Yeah, this is really, really, REALLY long. I just want you to be aware of that. But there are lots of pretty pictures! I should apologize for taking so long with this – I started writing it in October, but it’s been a bear to finish, plus I had all the other stuff going on at the end of the year. I love doing these posts, but they do take up a lot of my time, and “S” is a deadly letter in the comics alphabet, with a lot of great and long series – I anticipate spending the entire year on it, and who knows if I’ll even get through all the great series that begin with “S” in the next 12 months! Anyway, read on … if you dare!

Comics You Should Own flashback – Avengers Forever

I probably should have written a lot more about Avengers Forever back in the day, but I didn’t. If I wrote this today, this would be twice as long. This post might be a tad short on the details, but I hope it gives you some idea about why this wacky tale is so good!
