What did you recently finish reading?

Oldtidssagaerne 2., which are an interesting read, though - also occasionally repetitive, at least when they start going: and then the king kidnapped the princess and kept her for a bit and then sent her back home and she was pregnant and the son grew up and etc.

Cullen Bunn's Lobo: Targets - why the hell did they make Lobo suddenly young and hot for the New 52? Why?

Mark Waid's Daredevil: The Daredevil You Know, which is getting boring.

Marie Brennan's The Voyage of the Basilisk. Well - it felt a bit lose as far as plot goes. I mean, it's interesting, seeing different parts of this world and their dragons, but plotwise - let's sail around and scientifically look for dragons didn't feel like much.

Makoto Yukimura's Vinland Saga book 4. - there is something very curious about reading about vikings in a manga. And not just the occasional moment of wtf? (Because I'm fairly certain that southern Jutland did not have vast forests to be cleared for farmland in the viking age. Not quite like that.)

Brian Azzarello's Wonder Woman: Bones, which I maintain a perfectly entertaining urban fantasy comic as long as you pretend it has absolutely nothing to do with the DC superhero.

Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray's All-Star Western: Gold Standard, which was a bit meh, but ends with Hex stuck in 21st century Arkham Asylum, so - maybe it gets better?

What are you currently reading?

I'm almost done with an anthology called "Byzantium and the Viking World, which mostly has me wondering why all the current viking tv shows are all about the west (probably because they are either English or US productions). England, France - who bloody cares? Give me the journey down the rivers, give me Byzantium, the City - give me the Varangian guard - or just a viking who has been in the Varangian guard, goes with Ragnar to Paris, gets into the fancy Paris cathedral and goes - "Pretty. Bit tiny and a bit rural, but pretty."

What do you think you'll read next?

Possibly The Haunting of Hill House, possibly something else. I have options.
