Some books I've read 24
I'm a bit late discovering Steinberg. The book is brilliant, of course. Pure drawings.
Scar Strangled Banger by Ralph Steadman
Don't have a lot of Steadman books, only the Alice in Wonderland one. This is a nice one to have, with lotsa great drawings, still as relevant today.
Sandman Overture by Neil Gaiman
Okay, it looks amazing, but one week after finishing the book, there wasn't a single image or panel that stuck in my head.
Hellboy in Mexico by Mike Mignola
Not really essential. One short story drawn by Mignola, the Corben stuff, though great, has already been published in other books. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the final book.
Patience by Daniel Clowes
Clowes is a genius and the ending is perfection.
Mary Wept over the Feet of Jesus by Chester Brown
Another genius. His artwork is amazing. It's even more interesting because of the fact that Chester Brown finds it interesting. And also sometimes funny, especially the story The Talents, where the whoremonger slave is looking sort of like Chester.
Cult Movies vol. 1, 2 and 3 by Danny Peary
I remember borrowing these books from the library in Oslo, back in the days when it was not that easy to find all these films. I don't agree with all his choices, and he can sometimes be overanalyzing things a bit, but still, these are pretty interesting books.
Breakout by Richard Stark
