Where does the time go when it’s not around here? Whatever the case, it’s time for Weekend Reading 14!
As always, we want to know what you’re reading this weekend, too. Please let us know in the comment section!
AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend, I’ll be continuing my personal trend of comics anthologies with Chainmail Bikini: The Anthology of Women Gamers. As far as prose goes, I’ll be checking out Leah Johnson’s You Should See Me in a Crown.
TAIMUR DAR: Back at NYCC, I bought Batman: The Definitive History of the Dark Knight in Comics, Film, and Beyond by Andrew Farago. It’s a massive tome from Insight Editions. The recent passing of Joel Schumacher this week made me want to revisit the sections related to the filming of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.
JOSH HILGENBERG: After reading Ben Kahn and Bruno Hidalgo’s Gryffen, I’m curious about more anarchist comics, so I’m going right to the source with V for Vendetta by Alan Moore, David Lloyd, Steve Whitaker, and Siobhan Dodds. I’ve read it before, and loved the movie when I was younger, so I’m interested in seeing what I think of it now that I’m older (and there’s a fascist in the White House).
NANCY POWELL: I am looking forward to tackling Six a Days In Cincinnati by Dan Mendez Moore.
BILLY HENEHAN: As someone who primarily consumes comics from Marvel through the Marvel Unlimited app, I’m used to living 6 months behind my fellow fans. I’m excited that Marvel added the first four issues of Thor by Donny Cates and Nic Klein. Thunder god herald of Galactus? Tell me more! Tell me more!
JOE GRUNENWALD: You know what, friends? I once again don’t have any idea what I’m going to read this weekend. After their recent call for financial help, I just picked up the TwoMorrows book on the DC Implosion of the late ’70s, so I might start reading that. I also have some true-crime books, like Green River Killer by Jeff Jensen & Jonathan Case and Two Dead by Van Jensen & Nate Powell, that I’ve been itching to read. Or I could read something from my Hoopla or DC Universe list…or that I’ve grabbed and Comixology but haven’t read yet…It’s too much! Will I even read any of it? I need to lie down.
