Mystery/Thriller: The 13th Hour - Richard Doetsch (or something like that, I’m reading the name from 20 feet, so I could be wrong on the author). It came out in late December, but I got a hold of it in September, and it’s pretty good.

Fantasy: Night Runner - (Author escapes me). It is a vampire story taken away from a few of those recent horrid vampire stories. By far one of the better vampire stories of this age. In book form, that is...


Anyway, there are 2. As I read through more books, I’ll get more up.

I have been reading Invincible recently not as good as Irredeemable and The Boys and the other comics I posted above but still worth a read I like how it’s kinda old school.

Also recently started to reread The Mask comics I own and they should definitely be posted here I recommend them to everyone even if you watched and liked the movie becasue Trust me the comics are 100% better.

As for Books I’m adding the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series here becasue they are perfect for any Sci Fi fan.

Manga:

Dogs: Bullets and Carnage --

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where violence, crime, genetic manipulation and other cruel scientific experiments have become common, the story focuses on four main characters who, through a series of coincidences, meet as they search for a way “below”, looking for answers to their individual pasts.



Tegami Bachi --

The story takes place in the land of AmberGround, a place of perpetual night only partially illuminated by an artificial sun. Lag Seeing works as a “Letter Bee” (delivery boy) at the “Bee Hive” (a delivery service), with his Dingo, Niche, and her “pet”, Steak, traveling with him. He is entrusted with the “hearts” of everyone in AmberGround to deliver their packages.



Black God --

Most humans do not know that every person is one of three doppel liners, three people who share the same fate, and that god-like beings called mototsumitama protect the natural balance of power in the world. However, Keita Ibuki, a videogame programmer from Tokyo, is suddenly drawn into the intrigues of the mototsumitama during a chance encounter with Kuro, a young mototsumitama who makes a contract with Keita in order to save his life. Along with Keita’s childhood friend Akane Sano, the pair begins to investigate strange disruptions in the natural balance of power that seem to be connected to a powerful clan of mototsumitama.



Orange Crows --

Five years ago, a young witch named Cierra broke the one unforgivable law of the witch society: attempting to create her own magic. Her unlawful tampering burned down a research room and injured the Mayor’s daughter, Cierra’s best friend. As punishment, she was exiled to the Wilderness, a barren wasteland crawling with witch-devouring Fairies and the bloodthirsty Forsaken...After surviving for five ruthless years, her exile has now ended, and she has been ushered back to civilization, only to discover that the world around her has changed greatly. Will Cierra be able to adjust back to a society that abandoned her? And if her freakish new ability that links her to the terrifying Fairies is discovered, she may not be let off with mere exile this time...



Zero: The Beginning of the Coffin --

Having been born in a secret government laboratory that cultivated esper (telepathic) powers within humans, Shuuichi, Sumire and Katsumi, are forced to endure a difficult life as test subjects until their escape. Years later, these siblings are still being sought after by unknown organizations that are after Shuuichi powers as he is what they refer to as the &#147;zero-sample&#148; with the ability to cause &#147;zero-shock.&#148;

Hostage by Robert Crais: This is my 2nd favorite book I have read this year. It is fucking amazing! Jeff Talley is a retired hostage negotiator for a SWAT team. Three punks decide to rob a convenient store and end up holding up a family. It also turns out that one of the family member’s the punks have kidnapped, is involved in illegal matters. Talley has to make a choice between saving his family, or the family that is held hostage. It has loads of suspense and ground-breaking interrogation sequences. One of the best thrillers I have ever read.

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane: Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule are new partners in the U.S. Marshal business. They are called on by a senator to investigate a hospital for the criminally insane. It seems that one of the patients, Rachel Solando, has “disappeared” from her cell. It seems there is more going on at Shutter Island than anybody else would expect. After all, it’s just a hospital for the criminally insane...or is it?

Shutter Island is my favorite book that I’ve read this year. Lots of twists and turns. The only thing I don’t like about it is the ending. It was to vague in description,so I couldn’t decipher what was happening. But Shutter Island is a very gripping book, with creepy dream sequences and with it’s awesome sense of humor. READ THIS BOOK!

I recommend The Maxx, it’s seriously the best comic series I’ve ever read. For some reason it reminds me of Berserk, but funny.

We3 by Grant Morrison.

The story follows the journey of We3, a squad of three prototype “animal weapons," as they flee captivity. The group consists of a dog, “Bandit” a.k.a. “1”; a cat, “Tinker” a.k.a. “2”; and a rabbit, “Pirate” a.k.a. “3”, who were all kidnapped from a nearby city and encased in robotic armor.




Really good and depressing.

I don’t usually recommend “classics”, but if you haven’t read Catch - 22, you absolutely have to. I don’t care if you don’t read another classic in your entire life, this book is life.

I also don’t usually recommend books I haven’t finished yet, but Patient Zero is pretty awesome so far. It reads like a pulp novel, but it has zombies, so that’s pretty awesome.

As far as manga goes, Mariaholic is very good -- it does have crossdressing and lesbians, so if your fragile sexual identity can’t handle that sort of thing, I’d stay away -- otherwise it’s very funny and very interesting.

And comics: There is a series of anthology books called “Flight” that has some really great, imaginative short stories. Another one I like is called Mouse Guard, but it only has one book, and ends with a huge cliffhanger -- I’ve been waiting for the sequel for a couple of years now.

Octopus Pie is a webcomic, but it’s very funny and has incredible artwork.

Current story running is Homestuck(fucking awesome), but I’d recommend reading Problem Sleuth as well. Both are a fun read.
