- The King by Rich Koslowski. When I checked this out of the library a couple of years ago, I was impressed, so I bought a copy.
- Phoenix, vol. 11: Sun, pt. 2 by Osamu Tezuka. The wrap-up to the final Phoenix story Tezuka finished before his death. Excellent.
- Phoenix, vol. 12: Early Works by Osamu Tezuka. The final volume in the series.
- Bob the Angry Flower: Dog Killer by Stephen Notley. Collection of comic strips. (Checked out of the library.)
- The Punisher, vol. 8: Widowmaker by Garth Ennis & Lan Medina. (Library.)
- Cromartie High School, vol. 4 by Eiji Nonaka. So very strange, but I like it. (Library.)
- DMZ, vol. 4: Friendly Fire by Brian Wood, Riccardo Burchielli, & Nathan Fox. This series continues to impress.
- The Drifting Classroom, vol. 10 by Kazuo Umezu. After all the awful, horrible things that have happened to these kids, I'm surprised any are left alive. (Library.)
- ClanDestine Classic by Alan Davis. Davis's writing is fine, but nothing to get excited over. His art, on the other hand, really works for me.
- Dungeon Parade, vol. 2: Day of the Toads by Joann Sfar, Lewis Trondheim, & Manu Larcenet. I really enjoy these fantasy stories, but each volume is a little too pricey for the content. If they were cheaper, I'd probably buy them. (Library.)
- Sandman Mystery Theatre, vol. 6: The Hourman & The Python by Matt Wagner, Steven T. Seagle, Guy Davis, & Warren Pleece. I wish Vertigo would put out more collections of their early publications.
- American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang. Another library discovery that impressed me enough to buy my own copy. Excellent story about the experience of Chinese-Americans.
- Kissing Chaos, vol. 1 by Arthur Dela Cruz.
- X-Men: First Class: Tomorrow's Brightest by Jeff Parker & Roger Cruz. Very cool stories set in the early days of the X-Men, long before the days of overly-complicated back-stories & Rob Liefeld.
- Yarns and Shanties (and Other Nautical Baloney) by Jim Toomey. Comic strips. (Borrowed from Teena.)
