On October 21st, I didn’t go back to any sort of present future, I went to the first show of the Welcome to Night Vale book tour. I was lucky that the tour started not only in Massachusetts, but a short bus ride from my home, at the Regent Theater, in Arlington!
Previously you heard from TRM about her loves and unloves, and Cartoon Sara shared her origin story. I thought it was time to tell you a little more about me. I love media. Movies, TV, books, comics, podcasts…I’m a consumer. In this arena, wanted to share a few things that are giving me particular joy right now. Here’s what’s currently making my world spin.
Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick-
So, um….I have sort of unwittingly become a Fraction/DeConnick household fan. I have been reading Hawkeye and Captain Marvel for months, (and The Goog has gotten me hooked on FF as well). Initially I was drawn in by the cover art and character redesign of both Hawkeye and Captain Marvel. Seriously, even if you don’t want to read them, check out the amazing work of artists David Aja (who recently won 2 Eisners, including one for best cover artist) and Joe Quinones. Once I started reading, I went into mass consumption mode, reading all the available issues of these two books. What I didn’t know for weeks while I was reading these two books is that these two writers are married! So clearly a super talented household, and I bet they have some really cool art in their house.
