The photos: go live on Instagram as I edit them and appear here in digest form every Sunday, with descriptive alt tags and additional commentary.
Not pictured: I read My Marvelous Year's 1966 selections in a terribly slapdash fashion; which is to say, I read the ones about people who interested me and saved all the rest in case there was time at the end.
There was a bit of time, so I ended up reading all but a handful of the comics on offer. I'm still enjoying this look at Marvel's early years, but the novelty of assigned reading has worn off. From now on, I'll read what calls to me and ignore what doesn't.
I reread the first six issues of JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, too, and dug into the annual for the first time. Hurray for Jem!
Behold! The dogs are now sitting buddies!
They professed themselves willing to pose with DOWNFALL OF THE GODS by K.J. Parker, but only if I didn't make either of them move. (Duffy was on my lap. Murchie was beside me on his beloved sheep-shaped pillow.) I had to pull the book up on NetGalley since my DRC doesn't have a cover, and the angle went funny, and I'm afraid I haven't left you with a terribly good sense of what the cover looks like.
The dogs are cute though, right? Right?
I'll do better with the cover image I attach to my review, which will be up on February 16th.
