inside vineyland by lauren r. weinstein
Each comic is just one page long - perfect for the bathroom, the subway, or watching TV. You will be amazed by such mind-blowing classics as ‘The Bird War’ and ‘The Manic Depressive Dogs.’ You will be embarrassed by the ‘Wacky Packages’-inspired ad, ‘Charmley: For Your Poor Ass.’ You will ask ‘Huh?’ in wonder as you gaze at ‘Self-Visualization Activities.’ An extended bonus story is also included, telling of a robot’s troubled quest for love as he’s torn between his lust for electrical devices and his duty to serve humans!
my new favorite person. a very witty and talented illustrator. very dark and nsfw (sometimes)

the stars my destination (tiger! tiger!) by alfred bester
In this pulse-quickening novel, Alfred Bester imagines a future in which people “jaunte” a thousand miles with a single thought, where the rich barricade themselves in labyrinths and protect themselves with radioactive hit men - and where an inarticulate outcast is the most valuable and dangerous man alive. The Stars My Destination is a classic of technological prophecy and timeless narrative enchantment by an acknowledged master of science fiction.
maybe i am reading more than one book at once, it’s okay, i’m just glad i’m back to reading. i’m only half done with this one and it’s magnificent. i’m reading the graphic novel (even though it’s basically the same text as the novel with more appealing vintage sci-fi illustrations? very much love them).

Kingdom Come by Alex Ross
Set just after the dawn of the 21st Century, in a world spinning inexorably out of control, comes this grim tale of youth versus experience, a tradition versus change, while asking the timeless question: what defines a hero? KINGDOM COME is a riveting story pitting the old guard-Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and their peers-against a new, uncompromising generation of heroes in the final war against each other, to determine nothing less than the future of the planet
my friend noura always talked about how magnificent alex ross is and i very much get it now. brilliant comic.
