Books Reviewed: July 2015
Posted August 14, 2015on:
Welcome to another post here at Alchemical Thoughts. I read quite a bit during the month of July. I also got quite a few reviews done. This was in part because a few requests I put in at NetGalley came due pretty close to each other (that whole expiration thing they got on their galleys), so I had to read a bit more than I usually do. However, it was worth it overall. Plus, there are a couple of items that made it into the reviews this month I had read a while back.
As always, comments are welcome. If you read any of these, let me know what you think. If you have a book you think I should read, let me know too. I might consider it. So, without further fuss, let’s see what got reviewed last month.
- Batman, Volume 6: Graveyard Shift.
- Time on Two Crosses: the Collected Writings of Bayard Rustin, 2nd edition. It was not planned, but this year is a year where I have read a lot of African American, LGBTQ, and civil rights history books. Anyhow, this is one I do recommend. Bayard Rustin is a guy we hear little about in most histories of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.
- Gotham Academy, Volume 1.
- Bodies. This is one that I thought had a great premise, but it did not deliver.
- VHS Video Cover Art. If you remember the good old days of VHS and going to the video store to rent movies, you will enjoy this book.
- White Whine. For this one, just read it on the Internet.
- Flash Gordon Omnibus.
- Deathstroke, Volume 1: Gods of War. I have to admit this was a lot better than I expected at first.
- Batman: Detective Comics, Volume 6: Icarus.
- Grayson, Volume 1. From Robin to Nightwing to secret spy.
- Injustice: Gods Amongst Us, Volume 2. Yea, Superman is still a superpowered tyrannical asshole in this one.
- Batgirl, Volume 1: the Batgirl of Burnside.
- MPH. A good read from Mark Millar, who you may know from works like Wanted and Kick-Ass.
