I remembered reading a few odd issues of this run in the 80s, and having a general idea of what was going on without getting the whole story. Always liked Simonson's style, though (I read X-Factor religiously back then), and I certainly like the art in the earlier issues of this run, when he was drawing and writing, better than the later ones where Sal Buscema did the art. Fun to revisit and read the issues I missed when they were new (which were the majority of them--the X-Men books were where I spent the majority of my comics money, and Thor only got picked up when I had extra cash, which was pretty rarely).

They've been on my nightstand for two or three years now, unfinished.

I did love them back in the day, though.

If you've never read any of Sarah Vowell's books, you should. She's informative, and hilarious. All are non-fiction, most on a single subject. This one is a collection of assorted essays.

Reread this after watching the first season of Hap and Leonard. The TV show is a pretty damn good adaptation.

A fitting end to King's Bill Hodges trilogy.

Stalled for a while reading Tom Jones and plowed through this:

Not re-colored reprints, though. Scanned originals.

In the style of (most of) the art and the writing, it reminded me of Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen without all the literary trappings. Same sense of a superhero team traipsing through a conspiracy nut's subconscious. Same detailed but stiff art style.

Fun, if you like that sort of thing.
