Vanessa’s Valentines Day Picks for the Future Lovers:
Castle Waiting – I have always loved fairy tales. The characters in this book are all so strange and beautiful. It bring tears to my eyes. You will meet faires, unwed mommy princesses, bearded ladies, nuns, a talking horse, and so much more. This book is about friendship, kindness, truth, and love. If my eyes had a nose this novel would surely smell like freshly baked, and still warm bread.
Mary Perkins Vol.1-3 - Can’t say enough about Mary Perkins. I love this gal. She is my mother, my fairy godmother, my sister, my best friend, my darling wife… Oh how I adore Mary Perkins.
Vampire Loves – Joann Sfar is at it again with the most romantic and charming vampire tale I have ever read.
Dr. Strange: The Oath - Brian K. Vaughan - This book has everything I want out of a superhero comic. Action, adventure, treacherous villians, a chivilress hero, and ah yes…the NIGHT NURSE. Just a touch of romance makes this short novel a classic.
Love and Sex with Robots – Non-Fiction- Explore the possibility of human intimacy and yes, even love with robots. Using object attachment theroy, the reasons that we fall in love, and artificial intelligence data, David Levy has opened my eyes. At once shocking and convincing. The future is breathtaking… I’ll have two please!
Professor’s Daughter – Joan Sfar and Emmaneul Gibert- Romance between a lovely lady and dashing mummy. Set in 19th century London. Charming.
Terry and the Pirates – Take a long and penetrating look into the past if you imagine your future filled with adventure on the hi seas with a sexy villianess who would just as soon kill you as kiss you.
Spent – Take a lesson from Joe Matt, there is nothing wrong with rubbing one out now and again (or in Joe Matt’s case constantly and non-stop), while you wait patiently for the love of your life.
Until then, my darling future lovers, come on down to Chapel Hill Comics and get SPENT.
Andrew finds that as much as he knows, there’s always more to be learned.
