- Tex Arcana: A Saga of the Old West by John Findley. Print on demand collection of a horror-western strip from the pages of 80s Heavy Metal. The first story ends via deus ex machina, but the others work well, and the art holds up nicely.
- Hikaru no Go, vol. 23: Endgame by Yumi Hotta and Takeshi Obata. The final volume. I enjoyed this, but the series dragged on too long. It really should have ended with Sai fading away when he saw that the Hikaru would continue to grow as a go player. (Checked out of the library.)
- Gingerbread Girl by Paul Tobin & Colleen Coover.
Great story about a young woman who may be crazy or who may be the product of mad science. Tobin & Coover play with the medium, utilizing many different narrators (who all address the reader directly). Plus, the story is set in Portland, so I enjoyed recognizing the background.
- 20th Century Boys, vol. 15: Expo Hurray by Naoki Urasawa.
Still enjoying this series. Can't wait to see where it goes.
- Stan Lee's The Traveler, vol. 1: Man Out of Time by Mark Waid & Chad Hardin. Pretty standard super-hero stuff, but I found this more engaging than the other Lee-"created" graphic novel I read recently.
- Showcase Presents The Flash, vol. 2 by John Broome & Carmine Infantino. The Flash may well be the quintessential Silver Age super-hero. I had never been all that interested in the Barry Allen version of the character until I listened to the Tom vs. The Flash podcast, which is a lot of fun. Thanks to that, I picked up this Showcase volume, and I will eventually be acquiring the others. (Tom has since moved on to Aquaman, which continues to get better & better. Funny stuff.)
- Doctor Who: The Deadly Assassin. Tom Baker without a companion. Good, but he works better with somebody to play off of.
