Highlights from the past week, with commentary from the NFNT gang:
47 Ronin (Dark Horse, 9781595829542)
Anna: I’m really looking forward to “47 Ronin!” I love a good samurai story.
All Star (Papercutz, 9781561638352)
?Caitlin: I was happy to see All Star on this week’s list – Jesse Lonergan is great. I’ve only read the first chapter of his tale of the highs and lows of a small town high school baseball star in the 90s, and I’m eager to read the rest!
Attack on Titan: Before the Fall Volume 1 (Kodansha, 9781612629100)
Jessikah: So excited by “Attack on Titan: Before the Fall”!
Bad Machinery Volume 2: the Case of the Good Boy (Oni, 9781620101148)
Caitlin: I enjoy the Bad Machinery webcomic on a daily basis and look forward to rereading this story all in one go, away from the computer screen.
Traci: Love, love, love Bad Machinery!
City in the Desert Volume 2: Serpent Crown (BOOM! Studios, 9781608864089)
?Thomas: City in the Desert continues! Let the world-building commence after the first book’s intrigue.
FF Volume 2: Family Freakout (Marvel, 9780785166641)
Renata: Awhile ago, a friend told me I should really be reading FF, and I assumed she just meant Fantastic Four and I checked it out and enjoyed it. But then she explained no, in this instance FF is not short for Fantastic Four, it is its own thing, and I checked that out and LOVED IT SO MUCH. Matt Fraction is so great at those quirky underdog type characters (like ya girl, Tong!) Plus volume 2 has the pool party issue!
Peanuts Volume 3 (BOOM! Studios, 9781608863570)
Jessikah: The “Peanuts” comics are very popular with the kids at the library.
Psycho Pass Season 1 (Funimation)
Jessikah: I really loved “Psycho Pass”, so yay for that!
Ranma ½ 2in1 Volume 1 (Viz, 9781421565941)
Thomas: Ranma 1/2 was the formative manga experience of at least a couple of generations, and I for one look forward to pushing it on future generations.
Thor: God of Thunder Volume 3: the Accursed (Marvel, 9780785185550)
?Mark: I’m also looking forward to the 3rd volume of Thor God of Thunder.
Unity Volume 1: to Kill a King (Valiant, 9781939346261)
?Mark: I’m curious to see what Valiant does with their new Unity series. I’ve been happy with their re-launch for the most part.
Wonder Woman Volume 4: War (DC, 9781401246082)
Mark: The fourth volume of Wonder Woman has a major development and it continues to be one of the few New 52 titles I’m still following.
