Inbox/Outbox: April 10, 2015

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)

wet-moonWet Moon Volume 1: Feeble Wanderings by Sophie Campbell (Oni Press)

The publisher description for this book ends as follows “Goths, friendship, romance, sex, betrayal, gossip, cats, murder, guilt, a squirrel monkey, and all the terrible and wonderful things people do to each other.”

How can I not want to read this?

Supermutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki (Drawn and Quarterly, April 28)

It’s not really a surprise that this book is near the top of my list. I can’t wait to read this; I’d read anything by Tamaki, but just from the title, I can tell this is going to be a riot.

Outbox (Comics Finished)

computer-loveComputer Love, Chapter 1 by Ivy Jane

This is a webcomic set in the future about a group of random people who move to Antarctica. First of all, I love Antarctica. I just came back from a vacation there. Second, it’s got all thesewacky awkward situations, including hilarious random sex scenes. I’m really enjoying it.

Sex Criminals, Vol. 2 by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky (Image)

I loved the first volume of Sex Criminals (like everyone else), so I was excited to pick up the second volume. It was interesting to see how much things changed. There is still humor, but the story gets much darker and stranger. I’m very curious to see what happens next.

In the Queue (What I’m Reading Next)

memory-gapsThe Book of Memory Gaps by Cecilia Ruiz (Blue Rider Press)

This gorgeous book is a short story collection about memories. Each character in it has some sort of memory condition. It’s beautifully put together; I know it’s silly, but I love the feel of this book. It’s got thick cream-colored pages that just makes you want to hold it.

Calling Dr. Laura: A Graphic Memoir by Nicole Georges (Mariner Books)

My first love is graphic memoirs, and it’s been awhile since I’ve read one. I’ve heard great this about Georges’, so I’m hoping to tackle it next week. 

How about you? What comics did you read this week?
