Stayed up too late last night reading Mr. Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. Fun, quick read, and Amazon is selling it for about 40% off, which is a heck of a deal. If you didn't catch his appearance on Colbert the other night, take a look at that as well:

In news that I shouldn't care about as a heterosexual male in this country, and yet amuses me greatly since I do, in fact, follow the show:
"Project Runway" finalist Kenley Collins was arrested today after assaulting her fiance with their cat, authorities said today.Oh, schadenfreude. So bad, and yet so tasty.
Yes, I like Project Runway. What of it?
Reading: In addition to Graveyard, some graphical goodness:
- Spider-Man/Doctor Octopus: Year One - A remarkable retelling of the origin of Doctor Octopus, portraying him as nuttier than a man in a peanut suit swimming in a vat of cashews in West Almond, NY. Even more remarkable is that I bought it off Amazon for six cents. Six cents! Plus $3.99 S&H, admittedly, but still. Six cents! What? They have copies there now for a penny? Grumble.
- Immortal Iron Fist, Vol. 1: The Last Iron Fist Story - Oh, Brubaker. You can do no wrong.
- Justice League of America, Vol. 1: The Tornado's Path - the reboot of the JLA. Liked it, but comic writers? y'know that thing where you use caption boxes instead of balloons, and they each have a different color and/or font for each character? and you think, oh, now you can have a dozen of them on each page? STOP IT RIGHT NOW KTHNX
