I appreciate the reflections on the different characterizations of the Joker over the years, the at least bare minimum attempt of the Batfam to try and get Jason to talk about his feelings, the exploration of 'why Red Hood', I'll even go for the deliciously soap opera 'family reveal' at the end, but there's one or two exceptionally trite/frustrating moments in here that I cannot forgive. To each their own canon. 🦇

If I had read this in 1996 I would have loved it. Reading it now as an adult who has paid attention for the last few decades this strikes me as a comic book epic for political centrists. I found this to be frustrating. I love comic books but I hate the fact that the majority of the mainstream ones seem to lean to the right. I am stopping myself here before I write anymore but it is what it is and Alex Ross really is an incredible artist.

I enjoyed it for what it is. Watching the heroes defeat a sea-monster by creating an oil spill (and a few other moments like this) really gives one pause from the perspective of reading it in our stage of a climate crises. These are late 50s comics about men enforcing the status quo and if you are like me you may have a hard time turning off your brain and accepting it all on the level of goofy fun. Jack Kirby is really inspiring as an artist.

I'm absolutely loving the Audible adaptations of the The Sandman graphics. Gorgeous sound with a well-adapted story and the casting! David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Joanna Lumley along with Neil himself as the narrator. A pure delight.

I love how with each new book the focus changes to a different character and we get to learn about their past and what part they might play in the future of Fabletown. It helps to make the overall story more intense and complex and I'm becoming quite attached to these characters, which worries me because I know the story is building up to break my heart.

Still though, the writing and artwork are so beautifully done that the pain will be worth it.

I'm on a huge library graphic novel binge (in between reading Ice Planet Barbarians, don't judge me).

Just borrowed this one.

On my hook : it will just look like a crumpled mess until it's blocked, but this is the yoke of a lace Sarah Cardigan, in Malabrigo Sock, colourway Archangel.
