Read Pile – Week of April 11, 2021Posted by buddyscalera on April 11, 2021 at 11:31 pm
Thought it would be interesting to see what people are reading. I stopped at my local comic shop yesterday and added a few comics to my read pile. My local shop is The Joker’s Child in Fair Lawn, NJ.
Conan the Barbarian (Marvel)
The Cimmarian Iron Shadows of the Moon
Dead Dog’s Bite

These days I’ve been relying on our local library. Today I picked up Derf Backderf’s graphic novel KENT STATE.
The last purchase here in Bloomington, IN was from Vintage Phoenix. My son fondly remembered flipping through some Ghostbusters’ monthlies, so we got the GB: CROSSING OVER trade.
Looking forward to everyone else’s reading piles! (…and don’t know about y’all, but it seems mine just keeps growing!!)

just getting back into comics again so I don’t really have anything right now to read because it’s been at least 2 years since I last read a comic so all my titles have ended and I am having trouble finding the new arcs

For the most part I hunt for my trusty trade paperback graphic novels, and right now I’ve got quite the backlog.
1. Vol. 2 of Middlewest(Middlewest, Book 2 TP | Image Comics)
2. Currently awaiting the arrival of Book 2 of Earthworm Jim off of Kickstarter(Earthworm Jim 2: Fight the Fish! by TenNapel — Kickstarter). Withholding my personal opinion of that IP’s creator, I can’t deny the quality of their work!
3. Giant Days from Boom (Index – BOOM! Studios – Come Innovate With Us. (boom-studios.com) has been a guilty pleasure as of late, so I’m looking forward to catching up.
Looking at these other lists here I’m realizing I need additional bookshelfs!

Yes, I know my pull list is old stuff, long story short… I stopped reading Marvel for about 10 years then got back into it and have been trying to catch up with Marvel so I’ve read everything from Marvel starting around roughly Heroes Return (I stopped reading as Civil War Ended and wanted to catch my bearings)… you’ll see that I’m gonna be a few years behind everybody else, so I’ve spent 5 years trying to catch up… I’m finally at Marvel, circa 2016. So what I’ve currently “pulled”…
Jason Aaron’s Thor run (just wrapped up Unworthy Thor) sweet baby jeezus, this is my favorite Thor run ever
Cullen Bunn’s run on Uncanny X-Men
& Civil War II

Oooh, what’s that about?!

It’s one of the classic Samurai martial arts texts. Not quite as famous as The Book Of 5 Rings, but probably top-5 from that era. What makes it different is that it incorporates Taoist philosophies with the traditional, Japanese Martial philosophies of the era.
This is a graphic novel adaptation. I found it in my local independent book store yesterday. It’s published by Shambala, which is not usually a comics publisher, but is a major publisher of Eastern religious and philosophical texts in English.

I love this. It’s the kind of thing we could think about for future challenge. For example, “how to adapt a classic.”
There are anthologies out there that put a new twist on stories in the public domain. This could easily be something that’s about a more faithful adaptation for educational purposes.

Purchased today from Bronx Bound Books’ stand at the NYBG farmers market. Two Epic Marvel collections, A Masters of Kung Fu and a Conan.
These are usually pricey, but they were in the “pay as you wish” bin.
