Greg Rucka's Queen & Country is f'n brilliant. Black and white line art, clear and concise story arcs with a new artist per, and deep characters that grab you, running espionage in all-too-topical situations.

I'm glad to hear there are novels and a pending movie in the works. Though Hollywood tends to destroy these things in its own way.

  • Front 242: Enjoyed Grayarea (the opening band), though both the band and crowd took a few songs to warm up. The singer and guitarist both turned their backs and looked bored during the backing-tracks only parts, which made for poor stage presence... decided I wanted to avoid making the same mistake in BSM. But their second-to-last song kicked ass, and they were more fun after someone brought the singer another shot of single malt.

    As for Front 242, I'm not a diehard fan or anything. I like Rhythm of Time and Headhunter and Strobe and I respect 'em for the influence they've had on the scene. So I went in not expecting much, and was pleasantly surprised, though I suspect the whole unseen bottle incident was an excuse to do an early encore.

  • Speaking of bands, did you know Prong is playing at The Pound on Friday? Snap your fingers snap your neck.

  • 30 Days of Night Comics: I'm loving 30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales. So. Beautiful (artwork from the original 30 Days of Night; it's gotten even better since then). And I was unaware there's an upcoming movie.

    In a similar vein, I'm not sure if I mentioned The Walking Dead, which is a fun zombie survival tale.

    And I'm loving [livejournal.com profile] warren_ellis' 3-issue shorts. Red, Mek, Tokyo Storm Warning. All the elegance of a short story. Makes the decades-long Marvel serials look even more like Days of Our Lives.
