Re: [Groop]Re: Summer reading list

Dang, its hard to think of something to recommend, given the genres I read most of what I'm trying out this summer have prolly been read by those interested in it.

Hardcore Fantasy fans, check out the Wheel of Time series, Robert Jordan. Very long, but engrossing, it won't even feel overly prolific, despite the 1000 pages per book. I'm up to the second, and enjoying it.

Darmha Bums by Jack Kerouac. I loved on the Road and others by him, finally gonna read this one. Great one of the beat writers of the fifties/early sixties.

Speaking of beat writers, I'm rereading William Burroughs Xterminator! Of all his free flowing thought writings, this one hits me the hardest, prolly cause of the constant Navy references. : )

Comic wise, all those non regular comic readers (I know a lot of you read Groo and nothing else from the comic store), of course as every summer I reread the Watchmen, one of the best pieces of literature of the late 20th century, by far the best piece of comic literature ever (IMO). If you haven't heard of it or been putting it off, now's the time to enjoy this masterpiece. I garantee you'll surprise yourself.
For humor fans, pick up the Deadpool TPB of his on going series, the best (and funniest) thing Marvel has going now. Also, Terry Moore's Strangers in Paradise is a wonderful series, check out these TPB's if you get the chance. No superheroes or funny swordsman, just dang good storytelling.
