  1. The Drifing Classroom, vol. 2 by Kazuo Umezu. The students of the elementary school that was transported to an alien landscape try to survive in a hostile environment and learn the first hints as to what has happened to them. (Checked out of the library.)
  2. Emma, vol. 1 by Kaoru Mori. A manga series about a maid in Victorian England.
  3. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne, vol. 5. Comics from the days before Byrne's ego grew completely out of control.
  4. Planet of the Hairless Beach Apes by Jim Toomey. (Borrowed from Teena.)
  5. Recess Pieces by Bob Fingerman. A zombie story set in a grade school. (Library.)
  6. Fullmetal Alchemist, vol. 11 by Hiromu Arakwa.
  7. Wonder Woman: Mission's End by Greg Rucka, et al. This is my least favorite book collecting Rucka's run on Wonder Woman. Most of it deals with fallout from DC's cross-over events, and the OMAC invasion of Paradise Island seems an appropriate metaphor for editorially-mandated storylines.
  8. Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel. I re-read this for an online book club, and I was struck at how well-written Bechdel's examination of her relationship with her father is. This is an amazing memoir, beautifully crafted.
