Foster’s (Dead Men) chain of stories reads a bit like watching a series of daily movie rushes with no inkling of what the script is about. Fans of speculative fiction mashed up with horror will eat this up, though enthusiasts of more conventional horror might give it a pass.


Highly recommended.

Geiger, Vol. 1

The sublime coloring makes this graphic novel a sparkling gem in this genre. Although the story does not feel original, fans of high-quality graphic artwork, reluctant super-antiheroes, and bombastic fight scenes will truly love this ambitious and wonderfully composed book.

Fine Print, Vol. 1

Sejic’s dialogue is quick and clever; the line work, staging, and color are perfect. Adult readers who enjoy some titillation, bordering on lascivious spice (including explicit nudity and sex acts), will find this a uniquely seductive visual fling filled with beautiful people from cover to cover, including the covers.

Haha: Sad Clown Stories

Fans of jarring and ironic sequential art books will enjoy this aggregation of carnival melancholy.

Stray Dogs

This is a quality graphic novel with fine craftsmanship, good color, and a fresh plot that will appeal to all adult readers of comics. Forstner’s dogs are almost cartoon-like, looking like they could come from a children’s show, in spite of the rather adult content.

The Second Bell

Houston projects her background of Polish mythologies and dark fairy tales onto this fanciful debut. Redemption, sacrifice, and generosity underpin this story about mother-and-daughter relationships. Fans of mythical yarns and medieval fantasies will enjoy this easy-to-read fable.

The Gates of Athens

Iggulden turns loose an exciting new series that is sure to delight teens and adults alike. This great historical novel dips into ancient life, lighting up all the curious bits that historians love to share. More than just a series of battle scenes, this saga informs readers of the times, the people, and the locations in the best possible way.

D (A Tale of Two Worlds)

Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), an award-winning writer of short stories, fiction, and nonfiction, has created a thoroughly engaging young adult crossover fantasy that occasionally breaks the fourth wall by speaking directly to the reader midstory. Clever and enjoyable, this Narnia-like work will delight any fantasy buff.
