Holiday and Birthday Loot


Here's a sampling of the loot I got over the holidays. (My birthday occurs just after Christmas.) I can't tell you how much I love that my family respects my unconventional tastes.

Even though I'm a grown man, a father of two, my family saw fit to load me up with some manhwa and children's books. I'm a big fan of some of the comics released by Dark Horse, especially Blade of the Immortal. So when I learned that they released Shaman Warrior (and were only one book away from the end), I really wanted to give it a try.

I'm also a big fan of artwork from artists like Ralph Steadman and Gris Grimly. My family got me two books that look like they're right up my alley: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz illustrated by Skottie Young, and Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Death and Dementia, illustrated by Gris Grimly.

Yay!

They also gave me a Starbucks card and Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans to go with the great reads. I feel so loved!
