Have just finished Alan Moore’s ‘From Hell’ which I had never read in it’s entirety before. Picked this up from Gosh comics very recently. Think this must be a new edition, a black bound hardback with a glaring splash of red blood on the cover, and signed by the man himself !
Have also recently been reading ‘Rifles – Six Years with Wellington’s Legendary Sharpshooters’ by Mark Urban (the real story of the division behind Bernard Cornwell’s ‘Sharpe’ adventures);
Strange Affair by Peter Robinson (A DCI Alan Banks book);
‘Stalking the Angel’ by Robert Crais (yet another re-reading of this second novel in the PI Elvis Cole & Joe Pike series);
and have just started ‘One Step Behind’ by Henning Mankell, the fifth of his gripping Inspector Wallander detective series.
Graphic novel wise I’ve moved from the stark black & white mystery of Moore’s Jack the Ripper to the colourful action filled Ms.Marvel vol.1 trade-paperback;
Somewhere inbetween these I’ve also taken in via single issues of Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Season Eight issue 10, Hulk issue 1 and Lucha Libre issue 3 (based on Muttpop vinyl toy characters)…
A fairly eclectic mix
