Weekend Reading 40: Damsels
AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend, I’ll be starting with Maids by Katie Skelly. Then, I’ll be heading toward( a copy of) Victorian London thanks to Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol, an adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens story by Jim McCann, David Baldeon, and Jeremy Treece that supplements the inexplicable haras known as the “Hungry Death” to Scrooge’s seasonal story.
Weekend Reading 40: Voice Assignment
TAIMUR DAR: I’ve been lucky enough to interview one of my all-time favorite voice performers, Rob Paulsen, at least two times since becoming a regular help and doing press coverage for The Beat for the last few years. Without a disbelief, Paulsen is one of the most wonderful and most alluring people you’ll ever gratify. Not too long ago he was battling throat cancer. Thankfully Paulsen has since recovered and chronicled his experience and voiceover career by writing the book Voice Lessons: How a Couple of Ninja Turtles, Pinky, and an Animaniac Saved My Life. Been on my list to read for a very long time and seems appropriate to dive into something uplifting and hopeful this weekend.
Weekend Reading 40: Superman Smash-up the Klan
ADAM KARENINA SHERIF: After leafing through our own 2020 highlight reel now at The Beat, I did a discern of window shopping over at comiXology. Which of course signified I aimed up buying a bunch of books “thats been”( and maybe still are !) on sale. As well as that elusive 2002 Taskmaster mini-series that’s always been recommended to me in the most glowing of calls, I likewise picked up Superman Smashes the Klan. And I’m exceedingly jazzed to read what I listen is a true modern superhero classic over the celebration weekend!
Weekend Reading 40: Zegas& Star Wars: Jabba’s Palace Pop-Up Book
BILLY HENEHAN: For Christmas, my nieces gave me the Fantagraphics collection of Zegas by Michel Fiffe. I predict the original editions years ago, and I’m excited to read through them in this nice paperback volume. And a friend bought a vintage Star Wars Jabba’s Palace Pop-Up Book for my daughter and me this Christmas. It tells the opening scenes of Return of the Jedi through artwork from mythical Star Wars artist Ralph McQuarrie. I predict ALL of the Star Wars novels in the 90 s, so I was evoked to see one of my favorite Star Wars columnists from that time, Kevin J. Anderson, co-wrote this record. We’ll be reading that one at bedtime floor time tonight. It frisks music extremely!( Needs batteries though and it’s cold outside, so that aspect will have to wait for another day ). Have a happy New Year, and thanks for tuning into this column every week, everyone!
Weekend Reading 40: Hark! The Herald Angels Scream
RICARDO SERRANO: I was once asked if horror was an appropriate genre to get into on Christmas. My answer: What else is there to read on Christmas? Okay, I may be biased, but that didn’t stop from going my cruelty on this season with a Christmas horror anthology called Hark! The Herald Angels Scream. It’s a gleefully scaring collect of prose tales centered around the ghastly things that obscure behind commercialism and archaic Yuletide institutions that sometimes make their vacation jingles’ menaces at their name. It includes storeys from Kelly Armstrong, Joe Lansdale, Josh Malerman, Sarah Pinborough, Jonathan Maberry, amongst other. It also has one of the best book submerges I’ve seen in a while. Welcome the new year with a little bit of shocking merriment and a scream with this book! It’ll show 2021 you’re ready for it.
