A Rogue Librarian's Reading List











{October 9, 2011}   Comics and manga of the week (10)

Angel: After the Fall, Volume 3 by Joss Whedon

  • Everything in LA went to hell. Literally. And our heroes aren’t doing so well.

Batman: Mad Love and Other Stories by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm

  • Cute and funny Batman adventures. Who says Batman comics always need to be broody and dark.

Checkmate, volume 1: A King’s Game by Greg Rucka

Checkmate, volume 2: Pawn Breaks by Greg Rucka

Checkmate, volume 3: Fall of the Wall by Greg Rucka

Checkmate, volume 4: Chimera by Bruce Jones

  • I love everything by Greg Rucka and as usual he impresses me with his well-rounded female characters. (Amanda Waller is awesome… I completely disagree with her actions and values but she is awesome.) Bruce Jones’ offering to the series impressed me a lot less.

Eyeshield 21, volume 37 by Riichiro Inagaki and Yusuke Murata

  • I don’t like football. At best it had always been that thing that pre-empted my DS9 episodes but I’ve loved every volume of this series. I was quite pleased with the conclusion.

Fruits Basket, volume 18 (French) by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, volume 19 (French) by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, volume 20 (French) by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, volume 21 (French) by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, volume 22 (French) by Natsuki Takaya

Fruits Basket, volume 23 (French) by Natsuki Takaya

  • I’ve finally finished this wonderful series again. It is so sweet and bittersweet. It was well worth revisiting.

Hark! A Vagrant by Kate Beaton

  • Beaton gives us a hilarious look at history and literature. But don’t take my word for it, you can also read her comics online.

Kamisama Kiss, volume 5 by Julietta Suzuki

  • Nanami plans a festival to bring worshippers to her shrine.

Professeur Eiji, volume 9 (French) by Akiko Monden

  • When I picked up this series I thought of it as GTO for women but it’s so much more and it really touches me.

Sakura Hime, volume 4 by Arina Tanemura

  • The granddaughter of the moon princess Kaguya, Sakura must fight monsters to protect the humans she lives amoung.

Seiho Boys High School, volume 8 by Kaneyoshi Izumi

  • This final volume is not as funny as the earlier adventures of the “inmates” of an all boys school. It was still enjoyable and there was a nice short story at the end.

Skip Beat!, volume 25 by Yoshiki Nakamura

  • My favorite wacky anti-love story continues. I was in stitches.

Slam Dunk, volume 18 by Takehiko Inoue

  • Will Shohoku make it to the finals? Will Sakuragi blow his top? Only one way to find out!
