Sweeeeeet!

Speaking of comic cred, I just got back from watching a lecture/conversation type thingy between Ricky Jay and Art Spiegelman. Ricky's got an exhibit at the Hammer in Westwood which is highly recommended for all us lucky los angelinos.

Oh no way, I only knew him from Magnolia, that's sweet I'll have to try and make it up there before it's over. And Art Spiegelman that is amazing.

Speaking of Indie comics I just read an autobiographical love story called Blankets and the third Flight volume, both very good. Almost caught up with Y: The Last Man which is great and I guess ending pretty soon. A library nearby has "Buddha" by Osamu Tezuka which I've only read the first book of, so that'll be great to dig into it's quite a huge story.

Yes! Craig Thompson's Blankets is the height of the sequential art medium, as far as I am concerned. It's one of my top 5 favorite books - not just comic books, books.

His Carnet de Voyage is one of my favorite books, period.

And anyone who hasn't read Scott Pilgrim hasn't lived.

Ok. Just finished Blankets, today, in two sittings. Wow. You all were right. Such a personal, innocent, and sincere story. I never both laughed out loud and cried while reading before. It has to be one of my favorite books ever.

Now I got to check out Thompson's Carnet de Voyage.

Augh, I almost bought Carnet de Voyage and some Scott Pilgrim books at the Seattle comic con last weekend...but my wallet cried out, and I could not silence it.
