A Month Behind

It's been a while, hasn't it. Comments will be short in an effort to get through this quickly.
  1. Freakangels, vol. 5 by Warren Ellis & Paul Duffield.

    Another collection of the excellent webcomic.
  2. Incorruptible, vol. 2 by Mark Waid & Horacio Domingues. Super-villain reforms after a super-hero goes bad. (Checked out of the library.)
  3. Incorruptible, vol. 3 by Mark Waid & Marco Takara. (Library.)
  4. Astonishing X-Men, vol. 6: Exogenetic by Warren Ellis & Phil Jimenez. SF take on the X-Men.
  5. Chew, vol. 3: Just Desserts by John Layman & Rob Guillory. (Library.)
  6. Morning Glories, vol. 1: For a Better Future by Nick Spencer & Joe Eisma. Runaways crossed with The Prisoner.
  7. Secret Avengers, vol. 1: Mission to Mars by Ed Brubaker & Mike Deodato. (Library.)
  8. Batman: Fortunate Son by Gerard Jones & Gene Ha. Batman & rock 'n' roll.
  9. The Sixth Gun, bk. 1: Cold Dead Fingers by Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt

    Great supernatural western. May need to get a copy for myself. (Library.)
  10. Hikaru no Go, vol. 22: China vs. Japan by Yumi Hotta & Takeshi Obata. (Library.)
  11. Stephen King's The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger: The Journey Begins adapted by Robin Furth, Peter David, & Sean Phillips. (Borrowed from Teena.)
  12. Captain America: Man and Wolf by Mark Gruenwald & Rik Loving. Captain America as a werewolf. (Library.)
  13. Black Panther by Jack Kirby.
  14. Moving Pictures bu Kathryn & Stuart Immonen

    The other graphic novels written by Kathryn Immonen that I have read (mostly superheroes) haven't really impressed me. This one, about people smuggling art out of Nazi control during WWII, did. (Library.)
  15. Time and the Batman by Grant Morrison, Tony S. Daniel, et al.
  16. Pantheon by Mark Andreyko & Stephen Molnar. This version of "Greek gods in the modern world" (from an idea by Michael Chiklis) reads like a series proposal that didn't go anywhere. Zeus is even drawn to look like Chiklis. (Library.)
  17. Mondo Urbano: A Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'roll Story. by Mateus Santolouco, Eduardo Medeiros, & Rafael Albuquerque. (Library.)
  18. Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne by Grant Morrison, et al. Baman lost in time.
  19. Suicide Squad, vol. 1: Trial by Fire by John Ostrander & Luke McDonnell.

    Finally, a collection (the first of several, I hope) of one of the best super-hero comics of the 80s. Ahead of its time then and possibly even now. I really hope this sells well and we see more collections.
  20. Moto Hagio's A Drunken Dream and Other Stories. Shojo manga that ranged from just okay to amazing ("Iguana Girl"). Library.
  21. Essential Nova by Marv Wolfman, Sal Buscema, Carmine Infantino, et al. Marvel's 70s attempt to recapture the magic of Spider-Man.

Not caught up yet, but that's enough for now. More tomorrow.
