Favorite Books I read oodles of comic books. My current favorites being Civil War, X-Factor, Astonishing X-Men, Runaways, and Uncanny X-Men. My all-time favorites are Peter David's first run on X-Factor (70-89), Joe Kelly's X-Men (70-85) and Deadpool (1-33), the first 101 issues of X-Force, and every issue of Uncanny X-Men from 94-360, especially the "From The Ashes" period (168-176) by Chris Claremont and Paul Smith. The Book Books I like are Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live, The Great Gatsby, 1984, Brave New World, Grendel, Harry Potter &; The Sorceror's Stone, The Areas of my Expertise by John Hodgman, Found (Davy Rothbart's collection of trash), and Mortified (Dave Nadelberg's collection of teenage angst). I also enjoy the plays The Glass Menagerie, Deathtrap and anything by Neil Simon, especially The Odd Couple
