Didn't get many books read this week. Unfortunately that does not mean you'll be getting my review of LoEG: Black Dossier yet. Sorry. Too lazy.
- Girl Genius, Book 6: Agatha Heterodyne and the Golden Trilobite by Phil & Kaja Foglio. This came out months ago, and I honestly don't know if the delay stems from Diamond or my regular comic shop. Given that once I requested the book from a different comic shop, they got it within a week from Diamond, I suspect that the problem lies with my regular comic shop. Since the incident isn't exactly isolated, in a few months, they will NOT be my regular comic shop anymore. I will stay there long enough to buy all the graphic novels I ordered through them (assuming they show up), but when that's taken care of, I'm done.
- Give Our Regards to the Atomsmashers!: Writers on Comics edited by Sean Howe. Fairly interesting, but this didn't really grab me. (Checked out of the library.)
- Megatokyo, vol. 2 by Fred Gallagher, with Rodney Caston. This was a purchase from that comic sale a few months back. Megatokyo is good, but I find it frustrating. It's so slow. Every action & motivation has to be examined & reexamined. And as the strip progresses, it gets slower & slower. It's like time is stretching out, and someday it's going to freeze completely, and no further progress will ever be made.
- Alan Moore's Hypothetical Lizard adapted by Antony Johnston, Sebasian Fiumara, & Lorenzo Lorente. Comic adaptation of a prose store Moore wrote for a shared world anthology.
- 52, vol. 4 by various. I have to say I'm impressed by the achievement of publishing a weekly comic book for a year & maintaining the quality seen here. That's not to say this is great, but it's pretty good, and the main stories were well handled.
- Owly, vol. 4: A Time to Be Brave by Andy Runton. Adorably cute, silent comics. (Borrowed from Teena.)
