Is "The Fountain" with Hugh Jackman based on a comic book/graphic novel? Because I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't know that...I should have.

ya know i dont really know if the movie or the book came first, but i know the dawn of the dead book is obviously drawn to look like movie, this isn't drawn to look like the movie, i mean its doesn't look anything like jackman or weisz

Aronofsky had a script for the movie that he tried to get made for years. It fell through. He turned the original script into the graphic novel and rewrote the script to what became the movie.

Blood Meridian's part of McCarthy's "Border Trilogy", isn't it? Say if it's good or not, after you're done.

It's definitely... something, I recommend it, but not for the faint of heart, it is very bloody.

As am I. The movie is one of my absolute favorites, it's just taken me a long, long time to get ahold of the comic books. But then my tax refund comes along and Barnes & Noble happened to have them sitting there... So I splurged.

I used to read my dad's Kuttner books when I was a young 'un.
Don't remember anything about them (other than that I loved them), so I was more than overjoyed to find this book at Borders today.

I don't fancy Wolfe that much, but I've been interested in 'Simmons' for a while. If you say it's worth reading, I think I'll finally bite the bullet.

Have you read 'Prep' by any chance? If so, how is it?
That's another university-related book that seems fairly interesting to me.

Not read it, glanced at the cover when I was at B&N today. I'm interested in "novels academia" because they offer up a bunch of interesting campus stories -- I have so many types of these stories on my shelves, just waiting to be read. Special Topics in Calamity Physica and The Secret History are two such others that I'm interested in starting.

I just think "novels academia" are really interestying regardless because it's something we as college students can relate to...in one way or another (secretly despising the characters in the novels for going to fancy schmancy ivy-league/prep schools ).

Those two books you mentioned I'm interested in reading as well.
I should have read more by now, but I think the only one I've read was Old School.

I've heard I Am Charlotte Simmons blows. I haven't looked over all of his books, but if I was going to read one by Wolfe, it'd be Electrik Kool-Aid Acid Test or the Right Stuff.
