An interesting comics collection that I missed last year: Bob Dylan Revisited: 13 Graphic Interpretations of Bob Dylan's Songs.
At the Barnes & Noble Review, Helen Oyeyemi examines the fiction of Shirley Jackson.
eMusic lists the best albums of the year so far.
So it’s a comic book, or graphic novel if you prefer, based on a rock and roll album. Unusual origins, but the end result remains a terrific read. Neil Young’s Greendale is a socially challenging, politically conscious coming of age riff, exquisitely illustrated, smartly scripted, offering something challenging and something engagingly fun for both Neil Young novices and the most hardcore of aficionados. And it’s certainly a worthwhile addition to the library of any comic book lover.
