Yesterday I read Bone Vol. 1: Out of Boneville What a delight!
I'm still on a GN and Comics binge and today I plan to start Underwater Welder. I've been a big fan of everything I've read by Jeff Lemire so I have high hopes for this one.
>7 jnwelch: I just love the Saga series!!
I also have the second volume of Fairest: The Hidden Kingdom, Rat Queens: Sass and Sorcery, Undertow: Boatman's Call, and Deadly Class on the stack TBR.
War Cry is the new Harry Dresden graphic novel, and for Dresden fans, it makes for a nice fix. A depleted White Council has sent Harry and a lightly-numbered team to protect some scholars from the Red Court. All is not as it seems, and Harry may have been set up to take a fall.
Don't bother. Just stop at the end of volume 1.
Just read Filmish, a fun take on film history and theory. I've written more on my thread - but in short - recommended for film fans.
It's tough keeping up with another thread, despite my LOVE of GNs, but I will try to do better in 2016.
I recently enjoyed Cairo and The Story of My Tits is, most likely, the best GN I have read this year and I read a LOT of 'em.
I am planning to start the Fables series by Bill Winningham and do a year long read even if it spills over into 2017. I may start a thread for it in the Category Challenge but I'll post here too.
I'll post a link in the What are we reading GN 2016 thread when it's up.
I picked this up today - I think Joe had read Delisle's book about Burma, and though my library didn't have that one, they did have this one. Delisles's partner works for MSF, so he looks after the kids and draws for a year. The familiar sights are here, along with accounts of his visits, meetings and comic workshops. Well drawn and with a lovely sense of an individual approaching a complex political situation as a reflective visitor.
I'm keen to read his books about Burma and North Korea.
I hope you can get your hands on Burma Chronicles. His best, that I've read, is Pyongyang. A compelling look inside North Korea.
I just finished The Story of My Tits, thanks to Mark's rec, and it was topnotch. It centers around the author's and her family's experiences with breast cancer, and also covers such things as her growing up and family life. It's told with wit and humor and compassion, and could easily sit on the shelf next to Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant.
I just finished the seventh volume of A Bride's Story by Kaoru Mori. Beautifully drawn, as usual, and quite a departure from the 19th Silk Road tribal village stories that preceded.
>52 jnwelch: I have read the first 3 of A Bride's Story Joe. They are beautifully done. I have the other 3 and you remind me I must get to them.
Per your recommendation I am reading Velvet, Volume 1: Before the Living End by Ed Brubaker. What a throwback to the old spy stories but with a kick ass lady. I do love how she has that white streak in her dark hair like your friend from Houston, TX. ;-) Rat Queens is available via Hoopla where I got Velvet so I'll be reading that soonish.
So glad you like Velvet! I can't wait for the next one. Yes, when you see that white streak in her hair, you know the lady is going to be kick ass, including that one in Houston. :-) I just picked up another Brubaker noir, called The Fade Out, which has gotten a lot of good buzz this year.
