More fluff

A couple more books from my mindless fluff library trip.

Broken Angels, by Richard K. Morgan. Cyberpunk-y novel about a far future where personalities are downloadable into different human bodies, essentially making people immortal. Not too thrilling. But I read it anyway, because it was from the library and therefore free.

Astro City Vol. 1: Life in the Big City, by Kurt Busiek. A graphic novel collection of a comic that I’ve heard good things about. Busiek is subverting the superhero comic by examining what the rest of the people living in a city with superheroes would feel and how they would react. It’s kind of an interesting take on things, but not too compelling.
