Close observers and stalwart Battle Hymns visitors may have noticed the recent lack of book and graphic novel reviews around these parts. The reasons are pretty simple; between going to university full time, working part-time and volunteering a few hours a week at a local head-start preschool, my reading time has been greatly diminished over the last few weeks. Of course, all of that business is on hold for the moment as I am happily on vacation in Albuquerque for the Holidays. Not the most luxurious vacation destination, but my brother lives here, and he is more than willing to put me up for a few days.
So far, aside from a sketchy/scary bus ride featuring some gang tensions, the trip has been pretty good. I'll try to get some pics of the trip up here once I get some worth posting. I also have a some review material to post as well, including a strong candidate for graphic novel of the year. Speaking of "graphic novel of the year", you all can look forward to my year-end lists coming towards the end of the month. So, rest assured there should be some good stuff on the way. Until then, I hope everyone has a happy and safe holidays.
