Hawkeye. I’ve now caught up to issue #7, and I am RIDICULOUSLY happy with this series. The first series I’ve bought issue by issue in perhaps…8 years? I want it to go on forever. It’s making me wish Matt Fraction and David Aja could do all the comics.
Just look at these covers.
And for the two-parter:
The news that the Lovely Complex anime is finally getting an English release and that Aya Nakahara’s wonderfully sweet and silly manga is getting a well-deserved reprint makes me a happy good-shojo-loving girl.
To add to my smiles this week, I heard yet another little snippet of Yoko Kanno’s music on NPR. Last time, it was Cowboy Bebop‘s ever-beloved “Tank!” rousting me out of bed. This time, it was a few bars of “to tell the truth” from Ghost in the Shell – Stand Alone Complex – OST 2 accompanying a thoughtful story promo. *squee*
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. It is phenomenal. A Miyazaki designed world that you get to PLAY in? And a large part of the game is secretly (but not secretly at all) Pokemon. As a comic and anime and RPG fan, this is the greatest of all possible worlds. If you need anything from me, stop. I will be too busy saving the world from Shadar.
I am happy to be going to Vancouver’s Art Gallery this coming week to see the Art Spiegelman exhibit. Did I say that before? Ah well, I am excited!
I’m happy that my library’s graphic novel discussion group had a really great time talking about Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha this week. Several people really loved it, a couple didn’t like it at all, and everyone showed up engaged and eager to talk about it!
