Happy weekend

That’s all from me this week. Thanks for all the great responses to my call for books that make the rest of life fade away. I’ll post your suggestions next week. And if you have a book in mind, don’t be shy. Email me at maud [at] maudnewton dot com.

Truth-in-summer-reading goddess Annie Reid takes over tomorrow and most Fridays.

Until then, visit SuperDickery’s Seduction of the Innocent, a hilarious compendium of (unintentional?) sexual innuendo in the comics of yore. The Archie pictured below is my favorite. Here’s a larger, sharper version. And don’t miss Batman’s celebration of Pride Week. (Thanks, Max.)
