Books I've Read This Week

Marvel Comics: The Untold Story by Sean Howe. Ug, sometimes it's not a good idea to learn how the sausage is made. As a long time comic book fan and a lover of Marvel comics for untold years I though it would be interesting to learn the story behind how some of my favourite comic books were produced. That was kinda a bad idea that left me feeling depressed. These weren't super happy people bouncing around the bullpen fronted by the always jovial Stan Lee, these were real people with real problems. After reading this book I wonder how the entire comics industry didn't implode, multiple times. Anyway, it was a good read but one I'm wishing I didn't read regardless.
