What are you reading this month?

I just finished Middlewest Book One by Skottie Young. I had read a couple of reviews praising it. It is a well-told story about anger and its effects; I just wish the character portrayals were a bit less cartoon-y. But that was a style choice, as I think this is mainly targeted to teens or younger. The rest of the art was fine by me.

This month, my comics book club is reading Tank Girl: Two Girls One Tank. After that, I have Logicomix and Isola, Volume 1 out from the library.

I've made a resolution to spend September reading through the pile of random single issues of things I picked up just to see if they were any good, and then haven't read.

So far the two that I decided were worth finding more of are Angel City and Blackbird.

Not interesting enough to keep going (but not truly awful enough to keep either): Atlas & Axis, Ab Irato, Centipede. (I am going in alphabetical order, more or less.)

Isola and Middlewest are both farther down my to-read list!

>5 Tribe_XX: I liked the first two Monstress books; the third one is scheduled to come out soon, I'm pretty sure.

I can't be trusted to return books to the library without checking out new ones. Just came home with Solanin, Belzebubs, and Jamilti & Other Stories. Meanwhile, all the books I've actually purchased this year are sitting neglected ...

>5 Tribe_XX: >6 jnwelch: Monstress Vol. 4 comes out in October. I found the first volume a little frustrating with the set-up, but am definitely glad I stuck with the series.

Monstress Book One includes the first 18 issues. Not certain where that falls with the trade collection volumes.

>8 Tribe_XX: The trade volumes each contain six issues, so Book One would take you to the end of Volume 3.

Are we already up to Monstress Volume 4?! I’d better check what I’ve read!
