I really hate you, sir.

(But only for the back-and-forth humor purposes that have come to define this thread as the "What celebrity does Russ resemble, and which one of these comparisons will insult him the most".)

I never thought someone could get insulted by being compared to Ricky Gervais. I see it in the face for some reason.

I have nothing but respect for the man and what he's done for comedy, comedy writers, and television (shit, even as a philanthropist).

That said, it's hard for me to reconcile that I look like David Brent.

Fair enough.

Dave Brent it is I suppose. Though I have a dental plan (sorry Ricky).

Read Maus.

It's raining outside.

This all is a round-about way of saying today is Sad Day.

Picked up From Hell today. Expecting great and horrible things.

So I was in the bookstore Friday and forgot to pick up Scott Pilgrim. Must remember to actually visit the TPBs section.

Also, had forgotten about the Nathan Lane comparison. So awesome. Seeing how new I was at the time, Russ was so respectful. Sir. LOL.

From Hell is insanely dense but immensely fascinating, especially as a historical fiction.

The perspective of Dr. Gull adds a Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer-like voyeurism to his and a whole slew of other backstories about denizens and the locations in and around London.

Very good so far, and the grit in Eddie Campbell's inks perfectly evoke the mood of the book.

Also: picked up Charles Burns' Black Hole book today. I may put From Hell on the back burner to burn through this. Also in black and white, and also very cool inking style.

Keg's still not floated yet.

Great pick, and one you'll definitely get wrapped up in.

Black Hole was great.

It had the sort of 70's vibe that was going on in Phantasm, with a surrealism permeating the ordinary and mundane to the point where they were indistinguishable on certain pages.

Lots of different ways you can interpret the narrative, and even the literal interpretation on the page is fantastic stuff. Horrifying one panel, and totally relatable the next.

Highly rewarding stuff.

Finally picked up Asterios Polyp and Ennis' Battlefields hardcover.

Cracked open Battlefields yesterday. "The Night Witches" and "Dear Billy" were outstanding stories, just uncompromising looks at what the price the Great War cost to just a handful of people.

Totally buying Mailer's The Naked and the Dead after this is through.

The third entry in Battlefields, about a British tank squad in Normandy, starts with a fop getting his head blown off and a fucking Geordie corporal taking his spot.

This is gonna kick some fucking ass.

Brubaker & Phillips' Incognito.

Looks to be starting off in much the same vein as Sleeper, which if there is a espionage/noir-fan inside you somewhere, you should pick the hell up. And Criminal too.

The set up of having supervillains under witness protection isn't new, but the setting gives it all new life. And Black Death is creepy as hell.
