So you like Ham too?
I've seen some of Sikorak's Carousel slideshows in NY -- they're great stuff. I'll have to check out his book!

Today, it was just a few more issues of Bone for me...

"Wrath of the Titans"... And can someone please tell me why Amazon sellers are asking 100-200 dollars for the trade? I got mine, new, for ten bucks, which is two dollars less than cover.

I think it's a scam, the one vendor posting five times. The "comments" parts of the listings are suspiciously similar.
The Complete Crumb Comics vol. 9 - not recommended if you have never read any of his work. A lot of weirdness with no context to it. Crumb himself says in the introduction that he isn't fond of this period of his own work. There is some very cool variety, as it does seem to include everything.I really enjoyed the illustrations that he did for his wife's cookbook.
My first Jason: I Killed Adolf Hitler. Quirky fun, and a quick read.
I own only a smattering of Crumb's work, but I did pre-order his adaptation of Genesis (which should be shiping any week now).
You Have Killed Me by Jamie S. Rich and Joëlle Jones. Some of the dialogue was pretty clunky, but I liked the art. Not a bad story, if a bit predictable.
The first few issues of DMZ Vol. 7: War Powers. I'm expecting some big changes by the end of the title arc. And Book One of Deadman: Love after Death by Mike Baron & Kelly Jones. This is a pre-Vertigo "Suggested for Mature Readers" DC title. Nice and spooky, and I love the Kelley Jones art.
Booster Gold 22 and 24. I really should've re-read 23 in-between.

Finished both of these. Matty Roth makes a really big choice in the title arc. Combined with the machinations of Parco Delgado's new DMZ government, Wood has set up some big new story possibilities. And I enjoyed the Deadman two-parter so much that I intend to read the second one next weekend (picked them both up in bargain bins at HeroesCon in June).

This actually includes yesterday, but what the hey.

Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War vol.2

Batman: The Cult - I had never read it before, but my LCS had a box of trades on sale when I was there last week. and I bought this. As someone who has mentioned before how he is tired of reading Starlin stories, it was nice to read one in Batman's world. I really good story, and I love the Bernie Wrightson art. I didn't expect the level of violence or language it had, especially for a story in continuity.

Batman: A Death in the Family - That is right I had never read this one before either (another LCS sbuy). I knew how it ended, but there were still plenty of surprises in there for me. I never really read that many stories with Jason Todd, and after reading this one and the one above, I kind of liked him actually. I liked the introductory text piece of this story. Written as a historical article in the future. I also enjoyed Jim Starlin's article at the end.

The Shadow #1 - This would be Howard Chaykin's mini series he did for DC back in 1986, with both writing and art duties. I am not usually a fan of Chaykin's art, but he is much tighter in this series so it looks pretty good.

Over the weekend I re-read "Season of Mists" for the first time in at least eight years. That's where I started reading Sandman originally, then later back-filled "Preludes and Noctures," "The Doll's House" and "Dream Country."

Good stuff!
