The Bluest Eye. "The Bluest Eye, published in 1970, is the first novel written by Toni Morrison. The novel takes place in Lorain, Ohio, and tells the story of a young African-American girl named Pecola who grew up following the Great Depression."
Siddhartha. “Siddhartha: An Indian Poem is a 1922 novel by Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of self-discovery of a man named Siddhartha during the time of the Gautama Buddha. The book, Hesse's 9th novel, was written in German, in a simple, lyrical style."
Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. One of the things I plan to do this weekend is to read a few comic books. Yesterday I went to the comic book store in Philadelphia and bought three books, Basilisk #8, Barbarella #8 and Savage Spider-Man #2. Here is a video clip I made of the store’s location, if you like ..
Fat Jack’s Comicrypt, Philadelphia.
Hey “true believers", if you know me, you know that I'm a comic book fanatic. I picked up this book from Fat Jack's Comicrypt store in Philadelphia on Sansom Street. The staff was very friendly and super knowledgeable about comics, it’s well worth a visit when you’re in Philly. Ok, I got AVENGERS of the Wastelands #3, I wasn’t too familiar with this series, but the cover kinda caught my eye. Dani Cage, the new bearer of Thor’s hammer, Bruce Banner Jr., son of the Hulk and Grant, Doom’s former super soldier now the new Captain America, banded together to stop Dr. Doom’s most recent assaults against the civilians of the Wastelands.
Here are a few pages (no particular order) ...
I’d highly recommend this comic book, this series, and make sure you check out Fat Jack's Comicrypt store in Philly.., Oh, and leave a comment about a book you would like to recommend down below. Stay safe!
