Sort-of reviews

Django - the story of a man and his coffin. Quite funny at the beginning, quite nasty towards the end.

Bone by Jeff Smith
I heard it praised to the skies, and borrowed the first 2 books from the local library (the first 6 issues of the original version or 'Out From Boneville"), and I couldn't get into it.

For my taste the character designs of the three main characters were too simple. Yeah, I know, simplified is difficult... but those were just too bland to me.
The fact that they were an egomaniac bastard, an annoying fool and a mostly bland everyman didn't help. In addition to that the latter falling for a human girl set off my "ARGH, species looking vastly different should have different standards of beauty"-pet peeve.

I mean, how big are the chances of a human perceiving someone who's twice as tall as themselves and have utterly un-humanlike proportions as attractive? meh.
