Geoff Johns and a few nonfiction entries

Lately, I've become an avid reader of comics, specifically, those written by Geoff Johns. I'm almost finished with his reboot of the Green Lantern franchise and want to start the Flash series this year. My love for Wally West knows no bounds.

1. Dream a Little Dream by Debra Clopton. Silly, funny romance about a workaholic reporter (Molly) who falls for an interview subject (Bob).

2. The End of Reason: A Response to the New Atheists by Ravi Zacharias. Nonfiction book that's mostly a response to Sam Harris' "Letter to a Christian Nation." It's not bad, but there are better books by Christian apologists out there.

3. Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist by Michael J. Fox. Inspirational read from the actor who's battling Parkinson's disease.

4. Fleeing Fundamentalism: A Minister's Wife Examines Faith by Carlene Cross. Autobiographical account of a woman raised in a fundamentalist religion who eventually abandons it along with her husband and makes a life for herself and her children. She doesn't so much flee fundamentalism as religious hypocrisy, though. Still, it's an interesting read.

5. 52 Volume 1 by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, Mark Waid, and Keith Griffen. First of a series that takes a year in the life of DC Comics and tells the stories in real time. Excellent.

6. 52 Volume 2 by Geoff Johns, et al. Second in the series. The storyline with Black Adam is great.

7. 52 volume 3 by Geoff Johns, et al. Third entry. By now, I've developed an unhealthy fascination with Booster Gold. I love Dr. Magnus and the Metal Men.

8. 52 Volume 4 by Geoff Johns, et al. The satisfying conclusion to the series.

9. Green Lanter, Vol 1. No Fear by Geoff Johns. Hal Jordan tries to return to a normal life in Coast City, however, he must deal with both Hector Hammond and The Shark.
