I intended to drop my reviews in the comments section of my previous post, but once I started writing the first one I began to notice how long it was becoming, and imagining 10 more of such comments I decided instead to give each review its own post. I’ll probably bundle a few of them into each subsequent post (just like this one) to even them all out into halfway decent reads. Anyway, I’ll start off with the “Hellboy Vol. 8″ trade paperback and the “Invincible Ultimate Collection Vol. 3″ hard cover. To keep my views a little more organized I’ll break them down into Visuals, Setting/Story and Verdict. Ready? Click on the link below!
I’ve been on a book-borrowing-binge recently, visiting both the community library near my home as well as the libraries at my workplace for some reading materials. I’ve gotten a mix bag of the usual graphic novels/trade paperbacks (probably the only way I keep my comics fix going until they become more affordable ha!ha!) and art books as well as some books on management/leadership.
I’ll try to do some brief reviews of each book as I slowly worm through them one by one. Who knows, someone out there may just benefit from my unpolished 2 cents. Until then, below is the list of titles in my present possession.
- “The Art of Leadership” by George Manning and Kent Curtis
- “The Extraordinary Leader” by John H. Zenger and Joseph R. Folkman
- “The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader” by John C. Maxwell
- “The Introverted Leader” by Jennifer Kahnweiler
- “Why Should Anyone Be Led by You?” by Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones
- “Invincible Ultimate Collection Vol. 3″ by Robert Kirkman, et al
- “Hellboy Vol. 8 Darkness Calls” by Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo
- “Invisible People” by Will Eisner
- “Stitches” by David Small
- “Lucha Libre Vol. 1″ by Bill, Gobi, Fabien M. ad Jerry Frissen
- “Lenore Noogies” by Roman Dirge
- “Asterios Polyp” by David Mazzucchelli (this is my brother’s purchased copy)
I’ve been busy with work as usual but did manage to get some drawings done at the Mandai Zoo and the Body Worlds exhibition over at the Singapore Science Center. I might just upload a couple of pieces from those excursions after I get round to scanning them. Also, I did some bits of body mechanics animation to pad up my personal portfolio which I might just put up hereabouts. Will update as soon as I find a decent chunk of free time. Frankly, scanning drawings, fiddling with my website and blogging instead of doing work-related stuff often makes me feel guilty. Another factor contributing to my lack of updates. Silly me, eh? Catcha soonest!
