Things I'm Reading This Weekend: 11/9

There are three things that I'm gonna start reading this weekend, in an attempt to get my creative juices flowing. I am starting a 12-page paper about consciousness and I'm connecting it to Battlestar Galactica. I'm gonna need all of my creative faculties to make the connections between consciousness and cylons. So I've picked three books to read before the end of the weekend.

Green Lantern: Rebirth & No Fear are two graphic novels that Geoff Johns wrote where he made the triumphant return of Hal Jordan...The greatest Green Lantern, EVERY. For those of you reading the Sinestro Corps. War right now, you recognize Johns' epic style. If you've seen Dexter on Showtime and the idea of a serial killer who only kills bad people, then you will enjoy the original novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter. The first season of Dexter shadows the tone of the book so well. I love Jeff Lindsay's writing...it truly is a macabre spectacle. And, last, the penultimate issue of Brian K. Vaughan's masterpiece epic Y: The Last Man, issue 59. We find out some of the character's motives and I must say, I've already read it, and it made me cry. I have to read it again. In a series like this, were there has been so much action throughout, the fact that it's just ending with a whimper...it makes it all the more powerful. I cannot wait to see how the story of the last male on earth concludes when the final issue comes out in January.
