The Haul: March 2017

Looking back on last month’s article, I came to the realization that I tend to add more books to a list than I’m actually able to read and, in may cases, afford. There are only so many hours left at the end of the day to tackle my pull list, and, while they are a passion, comic books are not my only hobby. On top of that, I’ve been reading a lot more “older” stuff lately. This list will be more realistic, conservative towards what I think I’ll actually read. If I get to more, great! I’d love to read every good book out there.

The Haul: February 2017

After an almost three year hiatus (the last post came out on 4/30/14), I’ve decided to bring back my column “The Haul.” At its inception, I vowed to write something once a week. Not only did that not happen then, but I will not even pretend to make that claim again today. However, what I can promise is to pop in at least once a month for this new endeavor. When “The Haul” first debuted, it was meant as a place where I could talk about whatever was on my mind that week in the world of comics. Having that freedom was nice, but this next iteration will have better specified boundaries. By dropping a lens over this column, I can provide a clearer focus on what it is readers can expect.

East of Westworld

eastofwestsheriff

HBO’s latest Sci-Fi smash hit Westworld proves that the network continues to offer engrossing programs to watch, while also melding the tricky territory of science fiction and western genres. While the finale was light on actual payoff, season one was 10+ hours of free will vs programming, destiny vs determinism, right vs wrong; basically a decent primer for the Image series East of West by Johnathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta…  Continue reading East of Westworld
