In Inbox/Outbox, we document the rhythm of readers’ lives by sharing comics we acquired, the comics we finished, and the next comics we plan to read each week.
Inbox (Comics Acquired)
Ms. Marvel #13 – G. Willow Wilson and Takeshi Miyazawa
Yup, I made a special trip to the comics shop to pick up this issue. I can never resist a new Ms. Marvel, and I can’t wait until next week to read it.
Questionable Content, Vols. 1–4 by Jeph Jacques
I’ve been wanting to read more webcomics to expand my horizons as a comics reader, and the second I mentioned this to my husband, he immediately ordered the first four volumes of this collection. I realize I’m shooting myself in the foot if I binge read these, so I’m slowly making my way through the first volume and now I want a Pintsize.
Outbox (Comics Finished)
Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea by Guy Delisle (Drawn & Quarterly)
Talk about a powerful book. I didn’t get a lot of reading time this week, but I’m fine with the fact that Pyongyang consisted of most of my comics reading. It was so freaking good and haunting and absolutely worth the read. This is another one of those comics that people who don’t necessarily know where to start with comics would enjoy.
Black Widow #1 by Nathan Edmonson and Phil Noto (Marvel)
After Josh’s post on Black Widow, I couldn’t not start reading this series. He’s so right—I’m loving Marvel’s lady solo series, and this one is no exception.
In the Queue (What I’m Reading Next)
Strong Female Protagonist by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag
This one has been on my radar ever since SPX last year, but how can I NOT want to read a comic with a name like this?
Alex & Ada, Vol. 1 by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn
I keep hearing over and over again about how this comic is simple, but oh so good. I think it’s time to give it a try already!
