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)
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Ian Edginton, and Robert Deas (SelfMadeHero)
Umm I am all over this Pride and Prejudice comic version. I’ll admit to still having Jane Austen fatigue after adaptation after adaptation swept the book world a few years ago, but I am all about trying this in comic form. Plus how great is that cover?
The Age of Selfishness: Ayn Rand, Morality, and the Financial Crisis by Darryl Cunningham and Michael Goodwin (Abrams ComicArts, March 31)
While books about the financial crisis usually aren’t up my alley, this one sounds really interesting. I love graphic nonfiction and I’m curious to see what approach they use.
Outbox (Comics Finished)
Hexed #1–4 by Michael Alan Nelson and Dan Mora (BOOM! Studios)
I’m having a little love affair with BOOM!’s comics right now. They put out such great stuff, and so much of it features such cool women. I read the original Hexed series, but it’s this new run I’m super excited about. The art is just amazing (I knew I was in for a treat after reading Jenn’s post on Hexed #4). I can’t wait to get all caught up.
Silk #1 by Robbie Thompon and Stacey Lee (Marvel)
I’ve been hearing great things about the Spider ladies generally, so I was excited to pick this one up. New Panelteer Ardo wrote about this issue in one of her guest posts, and I love how Silk is indeed socially unsure and has to deal with that every day. The character is incredibly well written, and I’m definitely adding this title to my pull list.
In the Queue (What I’m Reading Next)
Jem & the Holograms #1 by Kelly Thompson, Sophie Campbell, and Amy Mebberson (IDW Publishing)
I had Jem dolls when I was young. Metallic, with sparkly hair. You probably could have called me obsessed. So you can bet I’m ridiculously excited about this comic. It’s got a great creative team behind it, plus I’ve only heard raves about the art.
Private Eye #1 by Brian K. Vaughan,Marcos Martin, and Muntsa Vicente (Panel Syndicate)
It’s Brian K. Vaughan. Do I need a reason to want to read this comic?? (Seriously though, it’s Brian K. Vaughan. BKV!!!!!)
