A Rogue Librarian's Reading List











{October 30, 2011}   Comics and manga of the week (13)

A much small week this time. Lots of DC and the end of one of the best manga I’ve read recently. Enjoy.

52, volume 2 by Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid and Keith Giffen

52, volume 3 by Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid and Keith Giffen

52, volume 4 by Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Mark Waid and Keith Giffen

  • With Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman out of commission, the DC universe’s other heroes must pick up the slack. 52 issues in 52 weeks, written by four authors and staring mostly C-list heroes, it could have been a disaster but 52 delivered action, mystery and real emotion and it made me care about characters that I had never even heard about before.

Batman: Battle for the Cowl by Tony S. Daniel

  • Batman is dead and several of Gotham’s vigilantes battle for their right to the title, including one who does not hold with Brude Wayne’s non-leathal methods.

Batman: Long Shadows by Judd Winick

Batman: Streets of Gotham: Hush Money by Paul Dini

  • Dick Grayson has taken on the mantle of Batman and must face some of his mentor’s old enemies including Two-Face, who has realized that the bat has changed, and Hush who now looks just like Bruce Wayne and is willing to use this ressemblance to cause havock. I’ll admit to not reading a lot of Batman, I’m not really a Bruce Wayne fan but I was willing to give Dick a chance. I really enjoyed Dick and Damian’s adventures.

Cat Street, volume 8 (French) by Yoko Kamio

  • Keito, a former child actress, had a horrible experience during a play she was set to star in and has spent almost 10 years locked up in her room. Meeting her friends and attending the El Liston school has completely changed her. She is now a respected actress again and poised for a return to the stage. Will she succeed this time? And will she be able to use what she has learned to help others like her?
