TV:
Agent Carter - saw the third episode, loved it. Love the Peggy+Angie friendship, love how complicated things are. Jarvis is wonderful. Everything looks so pretty. My feelings are simple, here. Oh, and in this ep we learn that Howard Stark is actualfax Blood Stupid Johnson.

Comics:
Sleepy Hollow - first two issues of a mini by Marguerite Bennett and Jorge Coelho. Two of the things I thought were out were delayed, so I picked these up instead because I'd been eyeing them every time I went in the store. (It was the Phil Noto covers, darn it.) They're a lot more directly tied into the show than I was hoping - a lot of references to stuff I didn't know. The banter is good, though, and Noelle Stevenson (of Nimona) has little two-page mini comics in the back, which was a pleasant surprise.

Copperhead - finished its first arc. I continue to enjoy everything this comic chooses to be. Liked the resolution to the mystery, am intrigued by these "Natives" that we murder with impunity but also have a treaty with and therefore can't prosecute by ordinary means; hope we see more of them. Also needed: more Clara, Broo, Ishmael (desert hermit android!), and Mrs. Sewell.

If this comic has sounded interesting to you at all, definitely check out the first trade when it comes out next month.

Hee! So true. Though I suspect if the US Government catches up with him they won't be so benign as the Patrician.

I actually haven't read that book, apparently! I haven't read any of the really early Pratchetts (although I did see the Colour of Magic/Light Fantastic mini with Sean Astin in it). But BSJ comes up in Hogfather, of course.

I don't think he ever appears in the books. There's another inventor - based on Leonardo Da Vinci - who appears on one book. The Patrician has him locked away in a turret because his inventions are inevitably WMDs.


My favourite Bloody Stupid Johnson thing is the garden feature that's so deep its a ho-ho instead of a ha-ha.
