I think this is my favorite to date. Is this how they first met? I took it as this is where they live...I don't know. All I know of Copper is from the strips on the site so please forgive me if I'm wrong. Mood, emotion (both in lighting and expression), and spirit all comes out effectively without a...

They actually teach a class with Maus at the school I just graduated from. I wound up picking it up even though I couldn't get into the class (for other reasons...found out about the book later on). It's just one of those comics that should be apart of your collection. I've slowly moved away from mo...

Forgot to mention Farmer Maggot (actually a hobbit), good friends with Merry, and Frodo stealing his mushrooms frequently as a child...or the Nazgul and their crawling around in the darkness and sniffing while Frodo hides in the shadow of a tree...very very creepy. :)

You're more hardcore then I am. I would say get some sleep but I'm sure you're doing that already. Read the books. It's an experience. From the time Bilbo leaves and Gandalf goes to Gondolin to the time Frodo leaves is about 9 years. Gandalf comes back and tells most of his story at the dinner table...

I have more faith in the movie now that I've seen this. The advertising however, like most hollywood studio work, is just horrendous. This seems to happen for most if not every Marvel movie out there. They have some of the best characters and highest potential for other media like film but always fa...

...and the homoerotic tension between Sam and Frodo? Not nearly as big a payoff in the end as I'd hoped (hey, they could've rewritten the story a little for today's sophisticated moviegoing audience, right?). I'm all about the homoerotic tension, I am. I've had that running joke as well. Sam: "DON'...

I think the problem is that you expected it, be it from the books or the movies, to be something else then what they really are. I've read through the books and am going at it a second time around. You have to take the books on one hand and the movies on the other. One will not work in the others me...
