Graphic Novels again!
Does anyone else long to read the "books" that the Tommy Taylor graphic novels describe? In Tommy Taylor and the Ship that Sank Twice by Mike Carey and Peter Gross we get just that, mixed in with the story of the real Tommy's birth and first year. The book-within-the-book is pretty good, though if it was released as a real book today people would think it was plagiarized from Harry Potter. There are similarities but there are supposed to be! I give this one a 6 and a must read for fans of the series.
Locke and Key: Alpha and Omega by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez is the final book in the Locke and Key saga. It is a good final installment. While nothing mind blowing (to me anyway) happens, everything does get wrapped up. a 5.
Fables 19: I think I might be done with Fables. I just loved it so so much through the War issues but since then I am just not feeling it. I didn't much care about Mister Dark, I don't particularly care about Snow and Bigby's kids. I've heard Willingham has an end game in mind so perhaps I will continue on through that. a 4
