*reads Amazon's description of Enigma*

Ooh, this sounds good!

I own exactly two comic books graphic novels--Preludes and Nocturnes and A Doll's House (Sandman vols. 1 and 2). I'd never read any other comics either. I figured the little pictures clogged up the (more important) words. But, I figured if Neil wrote it, it's worth a look, and surprise! I found that comics aren't just Archie and Batman. Sandman, at least, is a lovely new mythology. It's no wonder there are people going to conventions dressed up as Death. You should read these. *nods emphatically*

And, alas, I have never read Stardust. I've been looking for the illustrated version and can't find it for the life of me, so I gave up and put the un-illustrated version on my wishlist, and of course, I can't buy anything on said list until after Christmas.

I really do wish I hadn't put Coraline on the list, because wah, I want to read it Now!

I mean, gee:

"'The reason you cannot see the mouse circus,' said the man upstairs, 'is that the mice are not yet ready and rehearsed. And they refuse to play the songs I have written for them. All the songs I have written for the mice to play go oompah oompah. But the white mice will only play toodle oodle, like that. I am thinking of trying them on different types of cheese.'"

Why yes, I can be ten when I want. It's loads of fun *g* Is it Christmas yet?
