Wow, episode 2 already?
The Watchmen by Alan Moore, Art by Dave Gibbons
This is a good book. A classic, and one that I do think all comics readers should spend some time with at some point. I just don’t think this is a good intro to graphic novels for a beginner, and I think a lot of the people buying it right now fit into that category
Flight Vol 05 – Edited by Kazu Kibuishi
This is a short story anthology that lives up to its predecessors. This book has a lot of stories in it by a very eclectic group of creators. I selected a few of my favorites to talk about, but it was a challenge to pick. My absolute favorite from this book is the story “Changeling” by Sarah Mensinga. If you have a chance, take a peek at her galleries.
Birds of Prey : Sensei and Student – Writer Gail Simone, Pencils Ed Benes, Alex Lei, Michael Golden, Joe Bennett, Cliff Richards, Covers Greg Land
I love love love this book. It is a lot of fun, beautifully drawn, and gives me an opportunity to invoke The Rule . If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading Allison Bechdel, start here, then spend some time digging through the archives over at Dykes to Watch Out For. This book also features covers by Greg Land, who has a reputation for tracing porn for reference. Just take a look at Black Canary there!
Bride of the Watergod Vol 01 By Mi-Kyung Yun
I got way more out of this book than I expected. This is an ongoing manhwa series, and I intend to continue following it. If the subsequent books are as good as the first, I will be very happy. Beautiful art with a sweet fairy-tale story.
