newnumber6: (lasers)
This week I got one books:

Runaways #8 (a few plotty issues, but actually more enjoyable than usual)

Full reviews as usual at my comic reviews site for anyone interested.

Speaking of Runaways, they announced the new creative team. With #11 (probably) it will be written by Kathryn Immonen, with art by Sara Pichelli. I've seen some of Pichelli's work before and thought it not bad, but never read any of Immonen. I'm willing to be cautiously optimistic. And hey, if Christina Strain stays on colors, that may be an all-female creative team (well, if you don't count letterers and maybe not inkers), which is kinda cool. Less thrilling is the spoilery hint about what would happen in that run. I'll just link to it, if you're interested. A few art samples there too, and looks much improved to me over recent efforts.

And yesterday was my birthday. Another year older and deeper in debt. Actually less deep in debt because I'm gradually paying off loans and still make more than I spend, but why quibble on details. Another year older and less likely to be happy, anyway. Ah well, another year down, X-1 left to go. As is my tradition, I do not have to accept my new age until the other half of my birthday, on Good Friday. Still, thanks to all those who wished me happy birthday, and to the rest of you, YOU ALL SUCK. J/K, really not that big a deal. If it was, I would have dropped hints regularly before it came.;)

Didn't actually do anything on my birthday, spent a quiet day at home. Last weekend I went to my grandmother's for a 'birthday dinner' which was quite nice, though. Roast beef, rice, scalloped potatoes, corn, and for desert, cheeeeeesecake tarts, some of which I took home and ate on my actual birthday. (I also got my traditional bag of salt and vinegar chips to devour).

In other news, apparently SF channel will be giving the Riverworld concept another go. I always loved the concept (even though the books themselves were only soso), and thought their first attempt at a movie was only okay, so I look forward to another try.
