from panel to panel

I love comics and graphic novels, so what do I do with that love? Well, I turn it into a new feature!

From Panel to Panel is a new feature where I talk about the awesome (and perhaps not-so awesome) comic books and graphic novels I’ve read. Basically, this will be me pushing them onto your laps. You’re welcome.

Oh hey, remember this? Where I talk about comic books and graphic novels I’m excited about? It’s finally here! Apologies for the absence of this post last month. I was only excited about two comic volumes, so I procrastinated on the post. But hey, at least we have a lot of awesome ones that are out right now, right?

Let’s talk about those July and August graphic novels I’m excited about (and you should too!). You’ll see ones by awesome writers like Brian K. Vaughan (Saga), Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Phonogram), Marguerite Bennett (A-Force, DC Bombshells), and many more.

ABSOLUTE Y: THE LAST MAN · VOLUME 1 HC

Absolute YWritten by Brian K. Vaughan (Saga, Ex Machina, Runaways, Pride of Baghdad) and illustrated by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.

This Absolute Edition will feature the first twenty issues of this action-packed series along with special script pages, character sketchs and cover gallery.

Collects Y: THE LAST MAN #1-20. — Vertigo

Publication date: July 1, 2015 by Vertigo

Buy: LCBS · Amazon · Barnes & Noble · The Book Depository

Why I’m excited: I’m a big fan of Brian K. Vaughan’s work because of Saga, so I’ve wanted to read more of his works. Y: The Last Man is one of Vaughan’s well-known comics, and lots of people have sung praises about this comic. I find this comic intriguing because it sounds like it has awesome world-building and trippy story lines. I know I can get the trade paperbacks, but I kind of want to get this hardcover because it has an awesome slip case.

May approaches, and that means a month of awesome graphic novels that will be released! Yeeee.

As some of you may know, I’m a big comic book/graphic novel reader. I spend 1/4 of my time shoving comic books into people’s faces and demanding they read it (take The Wicked + The Divine and Ms. Marvel). And guess what I’m doing this time? Alerting you to all the awesome May graphic novels I’m excited about (and neeeeeeeeeed)!

EXQUISITE CORPSES

exquisite corpseZoe isn’t exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn’t recognize world-­famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment…and into his life. It’s also why she doesn’t know that Rocher is supposed to be dead.

Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as “lost manuscripts,” in cahoots with his editor/ex-wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she’s there anyway…well, as it turns out, both Thomas and Agathe think Zoe is awfully cute.

Zoe doesn’t know Balzac from Batman, but she’s going to have to wise up fast… because she’s sitting on the literary scandal of the century! — Goodreads

Publication date: May 5th 2015 by First Second

Pre-order: Amazon · Barnes & Noble · The Book Depository

Why I’m excited: LITERARY SCANDAL! Can you just imagine stumbling across an author who faked his death and become entangled in his and his ex-wife’s web? That’s exactly what Zoe gets herself into! I want to see where this all goes and what Zoe does!
