SOme marvellous stuff there Todd, thanks for the inclusion - small typo in Ed's review of "How Like an Angel" though unless there is somethign you know about la Millar you would like to share ...

Todd Mason said...

Listening to Marc Maron's podcast while putting this together probably forced the error...but why didn't she just call herself something sensible, like Philip Gregory Dwight John Ross MacDonald?

Kevin R. Tipple said...

Thank you for picking up Barry's latest effort on my blog. I didn't know Patti was not doing these today. Sorry about that.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Kevin. Thanks for hosting the review!

Randy Johnson said...

Ed Lynskey has an offering on his blog. Had one last week as well.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Randy!

Prashant C. Trikannad said...

Todd, thanks for the Mars comics link. I had something else in mind. Unfortunately, I got held up with the production of my newspaper. Low market sentiment has driven our advertisers under cover and so we have to write more than we usually do.

Todd Mason said...

I certainly wouldn't be offering my quick take on the two graphic story collections on a less hectic week, Prashant...sympathies...
