Certainly worth the read. I actually started and finished reading it last night in the one sitting. One revelation in particular left me stunned and another tale (in Paris) just illustrates how fortunate this man is to be still alive.

I've just started reading This is a Call: The life and times of Dave Grohl.

Started reading Double Dexter. I've read the first Dexter novel a few years ago so hopefully if I ever go back and read the ones in between, I won't have ruined too much for myself. :p

Best of Curse of the Spawn TPB.
loving it, although I didnt realize the TPB was printed inblack and white when I bought it.
Very hard on the eyes as modern comics dont translate well to black and white.

I hadnt heard of these ones but I found them in my Comic store: Annihilators and Annihilators Earthfall.
I grabbed them because there has been a black hole in Marvel Galactic titles since the Thanos imperative and the stopage of Nova and Guardians.
I am only 1 ish in so far. But I am happy there are some Galactic stories even if its only in limited series format.

'Twas good. I first read Tad Williams' "Memory, Sorrow & Thorn" series years ago. This was his latest series.

Glad to finally get to the end after reading all four novels back to back. One thing I'll say re his books is that he loves to write about people getting lost and almost dying of hunger / thirst; Simon in the catacombs under the castle in M, S & T for example and in this story you get four main characters lost in mazes, forests, and realms of faerie where realty is skewed. It does get a bit plodding in those bits.

Saying that, I've read all but one book of his, Tailchaser's Song, and liked all of them bar one, War of the Flowers. Even met him at a book signing in Melbourne and got him to sign my first volume of Otherland.

That is my favourite series of his although it took me a year and a couple of attempts before I read the first book in that series.

One thing he writes well is his villains. The serial killer in Otherland, and the Pharoh-like villain in this Shadowmarch series. Almost Stephen King-like.

Anyway, good. Recommended.

On my last handful of road trips to Brisbane for work .... well for the month of Februsty at least. I'm way behind on my comics but I have been crushing the books - "Stardust" by Neil Gaiman and "Summer Knight" by Jim Butcher (Dresden Files). Just started the "Hobbit".

I have been reading the new IDW TMNT series. I have to admit, this has become my favourite version of all the TMNT properties so far

Astonishing X-Men by Warren Ellis. Just read the last two TPBs - Ghost Box and Exogenetic.

A great Team book, much better than say Secret Avengers which I also have just read under Brubaker which reads like Captain America (Plus) - as opposed to the Avengers. Looking forward to the TPBs where Ellis takes over Secret Avengers from Brubaker.

Ellis' run on Secret Avengers was pure brilliance; each issue would have been it's own arc if Brubaker had his way with them Razz
As a result, I can't read enjoy Remender's run on Secret Avengers.

I am half way through the first Hunger Games book. I saw the movie and wanted some more background. Not bad looking forward to the 2nd book.

I also just got the latest Dark Tower Book by Stephen King Wind through the keyhole. So I think this will be read before finishing the Hunger Games.
