Went to get my eyes checked today. Read a good bit of Count of Monte Cristo there. ^-^ My doctor said he tried reading it once, after this list of books came out that showed the minimum titles needed to be read to be considered literate. Err … dunno how to put that any better. He said after three months, he resigned himself to being an idiot. XD And now he reads Harry Potter. :P
Last night I read Preludes & Nocturnes. Wai wai, so cooool! ^___^ And then I got to meet Death in issue #8. W00T!!! XD
“Super-cali-fragil-istic-expi-ali-docious. Utterly fantabulous word, huh? It means, y’know, great. Wonderful. Ginchy. Gnarly. Peachy Keen!”
That was my feeble attempt at recreating comic’s lettering technique. ^^;; Ah well.
Death: “… gets me down, too. Mostly they aren’t too keen to see me. They fear the sunless lands. But they enter your realm each night withought fear.”
Dream: “And I am far more terrible than you, my sister.”
Dream is uber cool too. :D
“I find myself wondering about humanity. Their attitude to my sister’s gift is so strange. Why do they fear the sunless lands? It is as natural to die as it is to be born. But they fear her. Dread her. Feebly they attempt to placate her. They do not love her.”
So said Dream. ^_^ Ooh, then in the recap in The Doll’s House, Neil Gaiman said, “… the Dream Lord is of the Endless, the race that are not Gods (for Gods die, when their believers are gone, but the Endless will be here when the last God has gone beyond the Realm of Death, and into non-existance)….” American Gods! :D:D
Hm, I wonder if God saves copies of other gods like he saves the ideas of fairies and leprachauns and unicorns …
Now I’ve got 12 more graphic novels to buy. >D #3–10 of The Sandman series, the two sidestories about Death, a collection of short stories about each of the Endless, and this comic about Japanese fables that Gaiman wrote and Yoshitaka Amano illustrated. *_* Must haave!
