Don't Make Me Angry!, Part 2: Marvel Masterworks, Vol. 235: The Incredible Hulk

 A milestone in Marvel history.

Helraiser: The Toll, by Mark Alan Miller

 Time was, I'd have been going nuts at the thought of a new Clive Barker Hellraiser story, but the years have been kind to neither the Hellraiser brand, nor author/creator Clive Barker himself. One of my most anticipated books in the past decade or so was Barker's THE SCARLET GOSPELS, a long-gestating finale to the Hellraiser mythology that was, to put it bluntly, one of the most disappointing books I have ever read. I swore after that debacle that I was done with Barker. And that stands. But I might not be through with Barker via Mark Alan Miller.

WWE: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know

 This is a nice, if greatly abridged, visual history of WWE (Or, as I will forever know it, "The WWF"), but it's far from, as the title proclaims, EVERYTHING you need to know.

Suicide Squad: The Silver Age Omnibus, Volume 1

 Dinosaurs fighting soldiers during World War II sounds like a veritable passport to excitement, right?

Suicide Squad, Vol. 2: Going Sane

 Still profoundly stupid, still terribly written....yet vaguely entertaining enough to keep me coming back.

The Force is strong with this one....

 Getting in some quick reading on Mother's Day, and I stumble upon this in STAR WARS: OBSESSION #4. The joys of having a 15-year backlog of comics.....

Dark Screams, Volume Six

 The DARK SCREAMS anthology series is back with a new volume, headlined by a rare Stephen King short, and anchored by a staggeringly good Novella by Tim Curran, who gets top billing on the cover.

Suicide Squad, Vol. 1: The Black Vault

 There's a phrase that I have been accused of overusing, but one that I enjoy nevertheless: Profoundly stupid. SUICIDE SQUAD, VOL. 1: THE BLACK VAULT is exactly what I'm talking about when I use that phrase....a book, TV show, or movie that goes beyond stupidity, but runs with that stupidity until it is writ large, until the stupidity becomes a thing unto itself, the entity's prime reason for being. The book/TV show/movie almost becomes a stupidity-delivery engine, perpetuating itself with its own dopiness and preposterousness.

Michael Jackson: Rewind- The Life & Legacy of Pop Music's King, by Daryl Easlea

Regardless of how you may feel about the man, Michael Jackson left a tremendous musical legacy, and he lived a strange, fascinating life. Daryl Easlea's gorgeous coffee-table book MICHAEL JACKSON: REWIND- THE LIFE & LEGACY OF POP MUSIC'S KING offers up a beautifully illustrated overview of that life, but the book is chained to a ridiculously limiting gimmick that makes it a flawed, frustrating read.
