Haha, I like the characters/cartoons/movies, but the comics just come off as unbearably cheesy to me.

(At least the older ones. I haven't looked at a comic in IDK how long, lol)

If you find the right type, im surfe theres some modern works you would enjoy. Its all about finding the books that fit your taste. Theres a lot of non-cheesy stuff out there.. I prefer dark content myself.

Most comics now are all grimdark anyways after Frank Miller. Marvel is trying to move back into a more innocent age with its Heroic Age thing but I doubt it will last. The comics are less cheesy than the movies imo. They don't have to cater to the average consumer who knows nothing about the mythology.

Stendhal / The Red and the Black - great novel, i'll give it 4 stars



Erri De Luca / Il peso della farfalla (The weight of the butterfly) - nothing to be excited about, 2 stars.



Samuel Beckett / Waiting for Godot - Weird and funny, 3 stars


now reading:
Jonathan Safran Foer / Everything Is Illuminated

As far as comics:

I've been keeping up to date while reading some old X-men like Pheonix and Dark Pheonix saga.

I just bought the complete collection of Franz Kafka's short stories and I'm pretty excited about it.

Preston and Child are probably my favorite authors. I read The Relic when it came out and have hooked on them since.
