If you’ve been following the comments at all, you’d have read that regular writer Stryder sent me a birthday gift…just opened it (yah, early, so what? :P) and what a nice surprise…COMICS!!! 🙂
Ah, my game of Fallout 3 is gonna be put on hold for a while; time for some light reading! 🙂 Of particular interest to me was “Chastity: Theatre Of Pain” from Chaos Comics. Back in the day, I followed Lady Death pretty closely…don’t judge me; it was the era of the “Bad Girls”; everyone was doing it…lol. While I loved LD’s story, Evil Ernie just didn’t grab me at ALL, and Chastity? At the time I was overloaded with “bad girl” books (Witchblade, Shi, Lady Death, a flirtation with Vampirella, some of who’s comics Stryder also sent…) and was unwilling to get into another…should’a allowed myself one more, I think; Chastity seems pretty cool. 🙂 And there was a ball gagging within the first few pages of the book…Chastity herself. No bondage, a vampire (it’s a vampire book) about to bite her just wanted her quiet, but well-drawn nonetheless. 🙂
Also, he sent me, “X-Men/Star Trek”. I had heard about this crossover…Lobdell actually made it plausible; great writer. 🙂
Going over the lot would be a bit of a “Tolstoy”…there was around 20! Stopping here, giving BIG THANKS! to Stryder…and heading off to read! 🙂
Thanks again, pal…you didn’t have to, but thanks!!
Birthday-Boy (on the second of next month, anyway) Tolstoy
