Control Room in The Obelisk


Although I've been able to spin this one a few times since the vinyl arrived about a month ago, I've not had a chance to really sit down and digest Adam Egypt Mortimer's The Obelisk. That changed a bit tonight, where I carved out a small niche of time to read the final issue of Rick Remender and Jerome Opena's Seven to Eternity.


Pretty mellow week this week, which is how I think it's going to go from now on. Lots of series ending or me jumping off. Here's what's on tap for today:

I'm not 100% on this one, but it's a one-shot and kinda hard to pass up a book on Bouchh, especially when you read the solicitation and realize the armor Lea wore in Jedi came from a pre-existing Bounty Hunter.  Which, of course, makes me ask what was their story? This, apparently, is just that.

This book is a staple of my monthly reading. Love the story, love the art.

The first issue sold me. 



I never got around to reading anything past the first trade of this series, and that was a looooong time ago. Since then, and through series like Saga and Paper Girls, I've very much become a Brian K. Vaughn fan. After watching the first episode of the new FX show on Hulu (they dropped three this week, I only had time for one), I'm definitely going to give the show a chance.


The Plimsouls - Everywhere At Once
Windhand - Grief's Infernal Flower
Perturbator - Lustful Sacraments
X - Under the Big Black Sun
High on Fire - Snakes For The Divine
Jerry Cantrell - Brighten (pre-release singles)
The Marias - Superclean, Vol. II EP
Adam Egypt Mortimer - The Obelisk
Bohren and Der Club of Gore - Sunset Mission


Lots of fortification against encroaching neuroses. Time to find my inner Lion (or cat).
