My Monthly Wrap-Up | November 2021

Hello ladies & gentlemen,

The month has come to an end and it’s time to do a quick wrap-up of what has been done.

Reading Breakdown.

Novels read: 1 ().
Comic books read: 9 (↓4). 9
Manga volumes read: 12 (↓4). 12


The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.


Superman (Vol. 4): Mythological by Brian Michael Bendis.
The Walking Dead: Compendium Two by Robert Kirkman.
Digital Mini Reviews | When Violence is in Your Blood.
Absolute Superman: For Tomorrow by Brian Azzarello.


Swamp Thing (1982).


Death Stranding Director’s Cut (2021).


The Walking Dead Compendium Two by Robert Kirkman.

The second of four compendiums is once again a masterpiece! The story never fails to explore the darkest corners of the mind within a zombie apocalypse setting and it does so at a breakneck pace and with brio!

Absolute Superman: For Tomorrow by Brian Azzarello.

Having mostly only read good things by writer Brian Azzarello so far, this story, with Jim Lee’s exquisite artwork, was such a huge disappointment.

The Human Condition I: No Greater Love (1959) - IMDb
The Human Condition 1: No Greater Love (1959).

Out of the 11 movies I watched in November, The Human Condition 1: No Greater Love (1959) was my favourite. This was one of the twelve movies I planned on watching in 2021 and I’m glad I finally did. There’s no doubt that I’ll be checking out the rest of the trilogy sooner rather than later now.

The Human Condition 1: No Greater Love is about a Japanese pacifist, unable to face the dire consequences of conscientious objection, is transformed by his attempts to compromise with the demands of war-time Japan.

This was a mind-numbing exploration of humanism through a conscientious objector’s eye-opening journey through the selfish and cruel axioms of war.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Jade Legacy by Fonda Lee.

The grand finale to Fonda Lee’s trilogy is finally here and it was time to see what she had planned for fans!


The month went by so fast. I’m not even sure what to think of it. I do know that it allowed me to slowly heal from my calf injury. I was never reduced in mobility but I did always feel a little pain. I look forward to it disappearing throughout the month of December though. It was also an all-around calm month without too many headaches in any part of my life. I have also been able to balance out my different hobbies and do as much as possible of each of them without feeling like I didn’t have time for certain things. It made me realize how much there is you can do in life and how much you need to prioritize the things you want to do in some way to make sure you don’t overlook them. No wonder there are people tend to “specialize” and don’t dare invest themselves in discovering new things. You can’t blame them. Imagine discovering how much you love doing something as much as that ONE thing you can’t live on without doing. Life would be hard. Then again, it’s okay if we don’t do these things as much as we want, as long as we try to do them. You have to learn to enjoy the process. 😛

  1. Oooh, I hope you’ll enjoy Jade Legacy. I haven’t started the series yet, but it’s on my TBR. I was just waiting for all the parts to be released, because I’m terrible at keeping up with series if I can’t binge-read them haha
    I’m glad to hear your calf injury keeps getting better. I hope the last remaining pain vanishes soon. Have a great December!

  2. “… how much you need to prioritize the things you want to do in some way to make sure you don’t overlook them.” That is the golden truth!
    Superman was your least favorite? Spoken like a true Batman fan.
    November was somewhat similar for me – went by quickly but mostly smoothly. It allowed me to realize that I need to focus on the things that I want to focus on.

  3. It’s funny you mentioning some folks who like to specialize. I was often told you have to specialize to be success these days. And I can certainly see that perspective. But I’ve always been a little more of a jack of all trades and master of none, and would have a hard time being anything else. I suppose some might call it scatter-brained. 🙂 Glad to hear it was a good month, and a comfortable one. I’ve been struggling a little to keep up this month. Not sure yet if it’s just a short term thing, maybe end of year stuff, or whether I’m going to have to slow down at some point and do that prioritization thing you mentioned. 🙂

    1. It’s true. People still praise and promote specialization rather than generalization of competencies. But I also hear that ultra-specialization has become a problem in itself too, at least in work environments. I too prefer being able to work myself towards doing multiple things to perfection even it would take more than 5 lifetimes to get there. 😀 I do hope you’ll find your own groove by the end of the year so you can kick off 2022 with a fresh new perspective that can help you achieve the things you want to achieve in life, my friend!


  4. I’m trying to get to that point, to the balance. I’ve got so much going on that I feel overwhelmed but hopefully things will chill out in December.
    Glad your calf injury is healing.
