I have finished reading Bernard Cornwell's "The Last Kingdom" and "Lords of the North" (the library did not have "Pale Horseman", so I had to skip that part of the trilogy for now). I like these books almost as much as his "Winter King" cycle and most of his Sharp novels and I thought I would post something along the lines...with lots of liberties taken on historical accuracies :)
I also wanted to post about a book that I just read that was simply amazing: Deathblow & Wolverine. It is written and drawn by Aron Wiesenfeld and according to the back cover received 2 Eisner nominations back in 1997 (?). I don't believe I heard of it before, but I just love it! The story telling is awesome and the drawing is real cool. I did a google search on Aron Wiesenfeld and it turns out he left comics to pursue a career in fine art...that is too bad because judging by this book, he has a real knack for storytelling!
