Reader's Diary #1179- John Kendrick Bangs: A Disputed Authorship
New term, to me anyway: Bangsian Fantasy, a genre of fiction that sees famous literary or historical figures interacting in the afterlife. I've seen the premise plenty of times, but didn't know there was a label (not that I'm shocked by that, of course!). T...

Reader's Diary #1177- Paul Jenkins (Writer) and Andres Guinaldo (Art): Son of Hulk, Dark Son Rising
(Collects Son of Hulk #s 13-17) Earlier this year my daughter noticed me reading World War Hulk: Frontline and, knowing that I was interested in the Hulk character but finding it hard to get into that particular book, went looking for another one for me for...

Reader's Diary #1175- Lisa Moore: The Challenges and Rewards of Re-entering the Workforce
  Pedant: a person who is excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with displaying academic learning. If the name of Moore's " The Challenges and Rewards of Re-entering the Workforce " sounds too pedantic, more like an essay than the short stor...

Reader's Diary #1173- Rebecca Rosenblum: Ms. Universe
  Rebecca Rosenblum's " Ms. Universe " has Martians in it and it was published in 2013. That struck me as odd at first. Martians seem like a 1950s thing. Perhaps, I supposed, this was meant to be a story written in the 50s. A narrator couldn't have written ...

Reader's Diary #1178- Gil Adamson: The Outlander
I'd heard enough praise of Gil Adamson's "gripping" Outlander to be quite excited to finally read this book. And at the beginning, I really was enjoying it. The premise was good; it's the wild West of Canada circa early 1900s and Mary Boulton is on the run....

Reader's Diary #1176- Joe Stretch: Hartshill
Too often when people use the word "interesting" it's really a passive-aggressive way of saying "I don't get it and I think it's stupid." But I'm going to use it to describe Joe Stretch's " Hartshill " nonetheless.  I don't quite get it, that's true. But th...

Reader's Diary #1174- Jeff Lemire (writer), Mike McKone (art): Justice League United, Vol. 1
Justice League United made Canadian headlines last year when Jeff Lemire announced he would be using the series to introduce the first Cree superhero to the DC roster, Equinox. Given that importance, and coming from Jeff Lemire, of whom I'm clearly a fan, I...

Reader's Diary #1172- Scott McCloud: The Sculptor
It was only last year that I read Scott McCloud's masterpiece, Understanding Comics . Written in 1993 it's a must-read for anyone getting serious about comics. Clearly McCloud knew his stuff. Though I'd already been heavy into comics for a few years by that...

Reader's Diary #1171- Michael Vocino: Robby. A Gay Short Story
  Partway through Michael Vocino's " Robby : A Gay Short S tory " I realized that it wasn't as depressing as I'd been assuming. Set in the late 70s/ early 80s, Vocino describes how gay people often had to hide their true selves. While I know the recent SCOT...
