I'm reading all my old Sandman comics again. I've got through to The Kindly Ones arc already.

At college I'm reading Gottlob Frege's The Foundations of Aritmethic and Alec Fisher's The Logic of Real Arguments. Both are quite heady stuff, but presented in a somewhat talkative and useful manner.

Laughing Laughing We are not worthy!

I used to read comics in my really young teenage years, then it was Archie, Veronica & Blondie and that dude that was always so funny friends with Archie. The Donald Ducks were cool too, the kids are into those now along with Geronimo Stilton books! We are not worthy!

Jos when living with me briefly in S.A. became a LOBO comic madman! He was a comic freak before I met him but it's a bad addiction. He has the DC edition and I'm sure all the numbers! FFS he hasn't even read them all and keeps them all individually wrapped in a sealed seethrough plastic cover, and there are hundreds 'n thousands of them! How we ever got them from S.A. to NL is beyond me! I'll get him to start arranging them in chronological order, numerically at that! Should keep him busy for hours! Wink

Trust me I know! Wink

My wish list for adult comics or just stunning art is unlimited!

I don't laugh at the medium of comics, just the feeling it brings from long long ago! Trust me if at a party where the company is boring I do search for comics and everyone has comics! Trust me! Wink

I have the entire Sandman collection in the graphic novel collections. Damn good stuff.

Of late I've also become obsessed with Warren Ellis' work - particularly the Transmetropolitan series, which is very good indeed, and FreakAngels (his current free webcomic).

Meh. N00b!

Just kidding.

I have most of the collection as the original comics (just missing the first 20 or so, which I have as the graphic novels)

I've also got the entire sandman series in GN form.

It is truely excellent stuff.

@Debs: Nail Gaiman is an English author who is noted for his dark yet witty style. His works often place folklore, mythology & occultist symbology in a modern setting.

Sometimes he just writes fairy tales.

Most consider The Sandman series of comics to be his masterpiece. I would probably agree.

He has written many novels as well. Neverwhere is my favourite and serves as a great introduction to the world of Neil Gaiman.

He co-wrote a book with Terry Pratchett. It's called Good Omens and it's nothing short of wonderful.

I think that's plenty enough to be getting on with Smile[/b]

Oh, and rather more to the point. I've recently finished Dante's Inferno, and am have yet to pick up another book.

So far it's a toss up between Dante's Purgatorio (an obvious follow up), Lewis Carrol's Alice In Wonderland or Michiavelli's The Price.

Haven't read any of them, and all three are sitting on my desk, waiting to be read.

Maisey, on Machiavelli? As long as you don't try and run the band like the Republic...

This should be interesting.
