After winning my bet of not reading comics three times over, I have at last broken down. I've just finished the ninth trade paperback of Strangers in Paradise. Damn, this stuff is good. And I thought shoujo manga was addicting! Terry Moore gives Yu Watase a run for her money, that's for sure! Hell, volume eight even had some Japanese in it! (I was happy, cuz I could read it without the translation...but I think the particles may have been incorrect...oh well). If you want a good read, comic book fan or not, Strangers in Paradise is something you should look into.
Now, to give in to another new addiction, Akira Kurasawa films ^_^ Tonight it's Seven Samurai. Let it be known to all that Kurasawa and Toshiro Mifune, on a scale of one to ten, ten being the highest, kick SO much ass!
