Time to ramble. I haven't done this in awhile. Time to ramble a bit.
That is what blogging is for right?
I feel like I haven't kept up on my graphic novel reading* like I'd prefer. Fables had been my go to fix, and catching up on Hellboy had been a thing. But some other things fell out of my attention.
I need to read more comics. I recently got a hold of Rat Queens and Hawkeye, and I feel embarassed for not having read them any sooner. Fek, I regret not starting Saga any sooner.
And comics is a medium I love. Its up there with IDK, books and whatever. My novel reading also feels like it has faltered a bit too. I suspect my penny-pinching has affected this the most.
I want to read more. Other things pop in. Distract me.
So I wonder, do I really want to read, or what?
2014 still had been reading what I guess had been a huge load of books. I actually checked; between RPGs, comics, webcomics, novels, novellas, short stories and other myriad loads of fiction/nonfiction, I consumed more than I remember consuming.
Yet I think I hadn't.
So, perception bias I guess. Or maybe I need to do more Reading Materials. Reviewing my reads might get me to actually remember the context of when I read them.
That said, been going through the World of Fire & Ice. As a setting book (and totally not a RPG supplement) its great. I've been loving it.
Same is true of Saga, which I got the first volume of. Seems like another series for me to dive into.
For Xmas I did receive a copy of Mindjammer.
Now Mindjammer? This I had been wanting. Wanting hard enough that I kept myself away from the kickstarter on purpose. I didn't have the money to spend on it. Mindjammer is the kind of future sci-fi setting I want to play in.
Affecting the roles of gender as a core part of understanding the future? Check. Technology is the root cause of evil? Check. Interesting pieces of setting you can drop or use at will? Double-check, simulacrums!
Top of my list of things to try and dive through I think.
Alright. End of ramble. Adios!
