Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.


I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

Marvel Adventures Superheroes: Vision

Marvel Adventures Super Heroes: Issue 20
Featuring Vision

by Paul Tobin
April 2010

First sentence:

Thor, do you see the festival?


Acquired: My son has a subscription.

Reason for Reading: next issue of this comic.

Comments: Ironman has been attacked, his armour badly damaged, he is paralyzed and has been kidnapped by Diablo. The rest of the Avengers are trying to find him but come face to face with two humongous elemental monsters created by Diablo which are unstoppable and damage is rampant. Vision is finally able to locate Ironman and the problem is solved. A great issue which pretty much consists of battle scenes. Those are always the best parts for kids (and me too, I admit). One of Diablo's creatures is really cool! There is also an underlying theme about human feelings. Vision (an android) briefly questions his inability to understand love and not ever really being truly human. Diablo's story itself ultimately has to do with him going mad and rambling on about not having any friends and being jealous of the true friendship that exists between the Avengers. A good message is nicely inserted into an issue which is high on the action.
