Hot Off the Press!

This week’s highlights, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

casebook-of-bryant-may-the-soho-devil-hc-by-christopher-fowler-1618-p

Casebook of Bryant & May Volume 1: Soho Devil (PS Artbooks, 9781848634572)
Gail: I love this series in the novel form and hope that I am not disappointed with this reworking. I am excited, however, that the characters of the series may become familiar to more people through the graphic novel.

Kamatani_NabariNoOu_Vol13

Nabari No Ou Volume 13 (Yen Press, 9780316204859)
Jenny: Nabari No Ou makes me both giggle and cry and I want volume 13 right now–I have hugs at the ready!

pandora-hearts-14-173871-250-400

Pandora Hearts Volume 14 (Yen Press, 9780316225366)
Jenny: I’m looking forward to the continued twisty plotting, emotional drama, and laughs of volume 14 of Pandora Hearts.  Victorian style and dark fantasy and complicated characters I care about.

Takashige_UntilDeathDoUsPartV3_TP

Until Death Do Us Part Volume 3 (Yen Press, 9780316217101)
Jenny: Until Death Do Us Part is an attractive and fun urban sci-fi/thriller, even if the characters don’t have a wide range of emotional expressions and the plot’s pretty cheesy. Also, the artist’s omake is usually a hoot.

xtremexmen1

X-Treme X-Men Volume 1: Xavier Must Die (Marvel Comics, 9780785165644)
Michael: X-Treme X-Men is really cool. It’s all about Dazzler and a bunch of alternate reality versions of the X-men going around the multiverse trying to find and kill evil versions of Professor Xavier. It’s a really fun book and well worth a read.
