Weekend Reading 64
Weekend Reading 64: The Fifth Season, 1602: Witch Hunter Angela, and DC Pride with Jen Bartel variant cover.

AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend, I’ll be continuing my Loki preparation with some Variant research: 1602: Witch Hunter Angela by Marguerite Bennett, Stephanie Hans, and Clayton Cowles. I know that an on-screen appearance from Angela and Sera in Loki is unlikely, but hey, a girl can dream! Then, I’m going to check out DC Pride #1 by a whole bunch of awesome creators. And as far as prose goes, I’ll be checking out a book that has been on my radar for a while now: The Fifth Season, the first book in the Broken Earth trilogy by N. K. Jemisin.

Weekend Reading 64: Sweet Tooth: Animal Armies

TAIMUR DAR: I read the first dozen issues of Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth and I really enjoyed it. I initially planned to watch the Netflix series before I finished the comic but I think I’ll stick with the comic before diving into the television adaptation. Currently in the midst of the third story arc collected in the third volume “Animal Armies.”

Weekend Reading 64: A Darkness at Sethanon

DEAN SIMONS: After months of procrastination and indecision I have finally started a new novel. A Darkness At Sethanon, the conclusion to Raymond E. Feist’s Magician trilogy. I read the first two books last year and – despite some complaints about awkward writing in places – the story and characters are pretty good fun. In terms of comics, I am digging through Marvel’s early Daredevil comics. The Wally Wood-drawn ones are incredible.
