what I’m reading | 2016

Everyone needs an outlet dedicated for mental escapism.

With the refreshing exception of my discovery and reading of Ready Player One I have focused most of my literary attention this year to dialogue bubbles and dystopian futures. As a kid I would sporadically dabble in stacks of comics, and over the last few years I’ve rediscovered this passion and created a few more stacks to sort through. This year I have gone so far as to read new & current titles on an ongoing monthly basis often times forgetting my intentions, falling behind, and then reading 4 to 6 issues straight of backstory to a fallen society surrounding a robotic companion bot-child (refer to Descender). Everything from classic and obscure superheroes to dystopian sci-fi epics have been additions to the rapidly growing collection of mine.

Here is a short list of my favorites over this past year, enjoy…
