I didn't realise how much my reading had taken a hit till I compiled this list. Usually it far out weighs my novel reading but this year it's taken a long time for my reading mojo to come back. Even finding solice in the quaint manga that I've been enjoying has been a struggle. Mainstream comics (Marvel/DC) just don't do much for me at the moment either. Hopefully I can find some interesting things to read this year.

Single Issues

Note: italics indicates series has ceased.

  • Die
  • Five Years
  • Steeple (continued online)
  • Wicked Things

Highlight: Steeple by John Allison

I love everything John Allison does. He has a great writing style that can turn a perfectly ordinary story into something hiliarious, fun, and deep. Steeple is a slight departure from his usual Scary-Go-Round stories but the pay off at the end of the printed story is well worth it. Plus he's continuing the story online!

Only trying to help!
