Wednesday reading — comics and trivia

What I've been reading

I finished Marcus Aurelius: A Life, which is entertainingly opinionated as a biography and decently contextualizing as a history.

I read The Second Book of General Ignorance, which explains a great many strange things but not why these books are published in the U.S. but the television show that they are based on is not.

I read Friends with Boys, which was a semi-autobiographical webcomic and is now a printed comic about a girl who was homeschooled starting public school for the first time as a freshman in high school, which is very relevant to my real life experiences, although I don't have any older brothers, didn't live in a small town in Canada and have never seen any ghosts. Aside from thinking that the title is really generic and basically inaccurate, I liked it quite a lot.

I read Deadpool Killustrated and actually enjoyed it more than Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, because hey, I was a classic lit geek long before I was a comic geek.

I read The Immortal Fist Omnibus, collecting Matt Fraction, David Aja and Matt Hollingsworth's first go at collaborating on the story of a blond superhero who's always covered in bandages.

What I'm reading next

Oh man, so many things. A bunch of books by authors I follow just came out at once, and I also have all those ILL books that I did not read this week because I was out of town and didn't want to risk losing or damaging them and paying massive fines. I don't even know where to begin. I should probably not even bother putting anything under this heading ever.
