🎧 This Week’s Podcast Playlist:
Comic Lab: I have a keen interest in comics, and this particular show keeps me coming back weekly. Not only for the tips and advice about making comics (and making a living from comic), but also their banter and contagious laughter.
American Hostage: I listened to the first episode this week. Not sure if I’m going to listen to the rest. I checked it out only because Jon Hamm is the lead. Maybe I’ll finish the remaining episodes when the world isn’t so crazy and my anxiety is at a four rather than at a nine.
📖 This Week’s Reading List:
It’s been a long week of reading. I don’t usually get to read this much in a week, so this has been a treat.
Fun House by Alison Bechdell: I read this one for university. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it yet.
The Thin Man by Dasheill Hammett: Personal interest. I have been looking for hard boiled detective stories to fill the void left after reading all of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe books. This one wasn’t bad, and I already read the Maltese Falcon, so now I’m looking for more.
Becoming a Writer, Staying a Writer: The Artistry, Joy and Career of Storytelling by J. Michael Straczynski: If you have ever seen anything on television in the last 30+ years, Straczynski probably wrote it. This is one of only two books on writing I’d recommend to anyone. The other is by Stephen King.
The Human Target #6 by Tom King & Greg Smallwood: There is only one comic I still read on a monthly basis, and this is it. It is a murder mystery like no other that I have ever read. I think it is only a 12 issue series, and we’re already halfway into it. I cannot recommend this series enough. I don’t think it’s in DC continuity, so pretty much anything can, and does, happen.
