It’s already Saturday once again, and that inevitably means the hour of Weekend Reading has arrived! As usual, The Beat team is spending the weekend safely inside Stately Beat Manor, lost in a good book!
What will you be reading this weekend? The Beat wants to hear from you! Share your plans with us, either here in the comment section or over on social media @comicsbeat!
AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend, I’m going to be checking out Dead Weight: Murder at Camp Bloom by Terry Blas, Molly Muldoon, Matthew Seely, Tait Howard, Sandra Lanz, and Fred C. Stresing. I ordered this book online, and when it arrived, I discovered that Blas had apparently signed the title page, so that’s a nice bonus!
TAIMUR DAR: I’ve read my fair share of manga but probably not enough compared to others. Intend to rectify that by diving into the acclaimed work of Osamu Tezuka better known as “the Godfather of Manga.” Going to start with his work The Book of Human Insects. Back in college, I read the first volume of his epic Buddha, but I never continued. So after Human Insects, I’ll likely reread the first volume and then move on to finishing Buddha.
DEAN SIMONS: This weekend I have the rest of this month’s issue of Forever Magazine (I have the last short story of the issue to read but rather enjoyed Karl Schroeder’s The Hero, which I just finished). I also have just started Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The IDW Collection’s fourth volume. I didn’t grow up with any interest in the franchise or comics so this has been a pleasant surprise for me.
