A Rogue Librarian's Reading List

{June 3, 2012}   Comics and manga of the week (43)

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise part two by Gene Luan Yang

  • Toph’s metal bending students must face off against some fire bending student to save their school. Meanwhile war is brewing between the fire and earth kingdoms again. Will Aang be able to stop it? A great comic in the tradition of the TV show.

Explorer: The Mysterious Boxes edited by Kazu Kibushi

  • A collection of fantastical short stories all starting with a mysterious box. It includes some truly quirky tales by some of the greatest children’s comic creators today.

Pandemonium by Chris Wooding and Cassandra Diaz

  • Seifer is the captain of his local skullball team and the envy of all his peers but he dreams of exploring the world beyond his village. When Prince Talon mysteriously disappears, Seifer who bears an uncanny ressemblance to him is forcefully brought to the palace to replace him. But will he be able to keep up the pretence when his life and his heart are on the line? A bought this for the giant demon cat and I’m glad I did, it’s a unique comic that kept surprising laughter out of me.

Thermae Romae, volume 1 (French) by Mari Yamazaki

  • Lucius Modestus is an architect in 2nd century Rome but he’s scorned for his outdated ideas. That is until he falls through the bottom of a public bath and resurfaces in modern Japan. The things he learns there allow him to revolutionize Roman baths. A very unique manga, both funny and intersting.
