I have nothing to say about this week’s books, I have to admit. It’s not because they weren’t interesting, because they probably aren’t. I say probably because the real reason I have nothing to say is that I haven’t read them; I didn’t make it to the store this week, so the only things that I’ve been reading are a second-hand copy of Essential Savage She-Hulk – which I’ll probably write about at some point, but I want to read Essential Spider-Woman first, to see if it was a similarly aimless attempt at franchise growth or not – and a wonderful book called The United States of Arugula by David Kamp, which is all about the rise of “gourmet eating” in this country since the end of the Second World War. I know what you’re thinking: “Why are you telling us about that? That has nothing to do with comics!” Sure, you think that now, but wait until Mark Waid’s upcoming Brave and Bold series teams Green Lantern up with Adam Strange after Jacques Pepin gets caught in a Zeta Beam and introduces Rann to modern French-American cuisine.
Next week, real reviews, honest.
