League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier I keep coming back to this series, though this is the first time I've read this volume, and always come back to a) O'Neill's artwork does not appeal to me, too angular b) Moore's pastiche text pieces are hard to read in large page format and often just boring.
Bordwell's Perplexing Plots not finished with this yet, enjoying it, but also feeling like it's a lot of just "x author/novel did this, y novel/author did this" in a long line about narrative time, point of view, and "block" construction. It kind of feels stretched out, though I guess a lot of it is gathered from differing essays.
A few issues into rereading Promethea... J.H. Williams artwork often feels like the overall page layout stuff, is hiding how bad some of the individual drawings actually are, and how often those page layouts are hard to navigate panel to panel. Sometimes you have to read verso then recto, sometimes you have to read across the spread, and if even I, a very experienced comic reader often found myself halfway through before I realized I was doing it wrong, then that's a problem with the design. I'm still early on, but it still feels like the extra superhero stuff is just there to make it fit more in with the other America's Best series.
Into the latter part of NYPD Blue Season 2 and enjoying it more than I expected. It's no Deadwood but it's smartly written and often quite funny. That the younger, prettier lead always gets top billing (Caruso, then Smitts, then I guess someone else) seems like a studio thing where Dennis Franz didn't have the looks and his character was too abrasive to be considered the lead.
