A Book to Read: I Am Legend
Ok, there will be no new Art updates for the next few days. I'm on the home stretch here with X-men and will be done with days.
Until then, I thought I would mention a book I just finished. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. I'm sure a lot of you may be familiar with this book, but if you're not, you should go read it. It's a fairly short novel and moves very quickly, but it is very creepy and all around a great book in my opinion.
It is a story of a Man, to his own knowledge is the last living person on earth. But he's not alone. That's right baby....VAMPIRES!!!! The last man on earth trying to survive in a world of a legend come to life. That's all I say, but the book is worth reading.
There is am movie coming soon as well. Will Smith will play Nevil, the last man on earth. I think that instead of L.A. where the book is set, New York will play the backdrop to the tale. I'm happy with that choice. I find L.A. to be a little boring to look at and it's hard to convince me that a place that is sunny 98% of the time is a creepy place. We'll see. I am looking forward to the movie, though I'm sure some will hate the idea out of the gate. Me, I don't care, the book will not get erased by the movie so I'll take both!
If you have any suggestions of books you think I might like, throw them in a list in my comments.
