I resent the implication that graphic novels are not "legit books." However, putting that aside I will say that I've been enjoying a read through the Avatar GN library, "The Rift" in particular I thought to be very well written.

I'm also into several Marvel titles; having been initiated into the universe with the ANAD relaunch. Sadly more than a few of them aren't being published any longer, but The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, and Ms. Marvel are ongoing favorites, along with the more-familiar perhaps Iron Man and Spider-Man.

haha, well I don't think 'legit' has any correlation to quality, but I do tend to think of graphic novels and comics as a totally different medium; capable of telling different stories in different ways than you wouldn't be able to get from a 'legit book'.

It's the same way I wouldn't categorize an audiobook as a legit book; though, I love audiobooks. Been listening to the Graphic Audio production of The Demon Cycle myself.

Also I had to google 'The unbeatable squirrel girl"; Was not expecting that to be real. hahaha.

Oh it's real. It is awesome.

are the Last Airbender GN's worth checking out? The show was dope.

If you're a fan of the show I'd say yes. On their own merits most of them are pretty average, but a couple of them are legit really good.

Quite enjoyed Alastair Reynolds' "Revenger"

Nice, I've read a few of Reynolds older stuff, I googled Revenger and it sounds like it has space pirates so can't go wrong there.

If you like Reynolds you'd probably enjoy the Culture Series by Iain M Banks. Consider Phlebas also has space pirates.

Or the Hyperion Cantos. I'm 2 books in and it's a great soft sci-fi / space opera with a sense of humour.

Definitely a big Culture fan. I loved the first two Hyperion books, less so later ones but still worth the read.

I want to check out Ann Leckie's newest if I can scrape together the cash and the spare time.

I'll try to make a post whenever a third of a year goes by with no activity.

The topic shall be: video games. What's a good game that you've enjoyed in the past few months?

I recently beat What Remains of Edith Finch - It's a very solid 2 hour interactive story with some very good emotional moments.

The past week I've mostly played GTA 5.
