Jelinas’ CBR-III Review #53: Black Hole by Charles Burns

black hole

I actually completed a “Baker’s Cannonball” (H/T Sara H) this year, and I closed out my reading for 2011 with Charles Burns’ Black Hole. It’s absolutely fantastic, but you can’t unsee what has been seen.

Jelinas’ CBR-III Review #52: 1776 by David McCullough

1776

I’m late, as usual. But, hey, I’ve been up all night baking, so it’s still January 7th to me.

I’m ending Cannonball Read III with a beginning: The beginning of our nation. 1776 is a real page-turner, and a great primer on the Revolutionary War.

That’s a Cannonball! WHEEEE!!

As penultimate volumes of series go, Motherland is about as good as it gets.

Jelinas’ CBR-III Review #48: Y: The Last Man, Volume VII: Paper Dolls by Brian K. Vaughan

y: the last man, vol. 7: paper dolls

Paper Dolls, the seventh volume in Brian K. Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man series, is a little pedestrian, but still a solid volume.

Jelinas’ CBR-III Review #47: Y: The Last Man, Volume VI: Girl on Girl by Brian K. Vaughan

y: the last man, vol. 6: girl on girl

Girl on Girl was probably the weakest volume in the series, but the worst volume in this excellent series is still better than the best volume in many other inferior series.
