Two new books from Boom!Studios this past Wednesday: the murderous conclusion to Rowan’s Ruin and the second issue for Snow Blind. Both were good reads. I was sad to see Rowan’s Ruin come to an end, but Ollie Masters got my attention as he dug deeper into the WitPro mystery.
Here are the quotes:
“Why did nobody even ask about the dogs?”

“All I wanted was the truth…And now that I had something that could be it–I Just wanted it to be another lie.”

Finally made it through the rest of my stack; and I got a few quotes and honorable mentions.
I also want to add that just because I don’t quote from a comic, that doesn’t mean I enjoyed it any less. Jeff Lemire’s coming of age “Plutona” and Jay Faerber’s sci-fi western ‘Copperhead” are solid reads, and I recommend ’em wholeheartedly. I also picked up Mike Carey’s new mini series ‘Rowans Ruin’, which is setting up to be a good horror romp.
Lastly I just finished reading Ales Kot’s ‘Surface’ #4. I have a few quotes, but I’m going to save them for a later post. I want to reread ‘Change’, and then follow with another read of ‘Surface’ 1-4, because there is some sort of connection. Then again, maybe I am just old and confused, and imagining things,
Anyway here are the last of the quotes:
“In the Grand dance of creation and destruction, of entropy and irony, the worlds are ending and she is there for all of them.”
– Neal Gaiman, The Sandman Overture No. 06
“There’s a thrill right at the end of a mystery. No more secrets. No more lies. All that’s left is the chase.”
– James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder, Batman & Robin Eternal No. 01
“With Great Power … Comes Greater Speed, Storage and Battery Life.”
– Dan Slott, The Amazing Spiderman No. 01 (2015)
“Ideas of the fourth dimension and its strange geometry suggest that there are ‘corners’ of reality which may be in a higher mathematic space and not that evident to our perceptions.”
– Alan Moore, Providence No. 05
“I am Groot.”
– Jeff Loveness, Groot No. 05
