Books reviewed July 2016
Posted August 19, 2016on:
In case you missed them, or in case you are looking for something new to read, here are the books I reviewed over at The Itinerant Librarian for the month of July 2016.
- I started the month with a true crime graphic novel: Green River Killer. This is the story of a serial killer that terrorized Seattle in the late 1960s to 1970s.
- I read Ghost Fleet, Volume 2. With this book, I complete the series, which sadly was cancelled after issue 8. It is still worth seeking out the trades.
- Before the Star Wars films that we know, George Lucas had a vision, and he put it down in a rough draft. You can read that vision now in The Star Wars.
- Want to get your fix of the “original” Ghostbusters (i.e. the guys from the first movies)? You might consider picking up Ghostbusters International.
- If you like Ellen DeGeneres, you might consider reading her book Seriously…I’m Kidding. I read it as an audiobook, but it is available in print too. I read this as part of my challenge this year to read more audiobooks.
- I read some nice erotica in Dirty Dates: Erotic Fantasies for Couples.
- If you have a friend about to get married, or recently married, this little book could make a good engagement gift. The book is Scenes from an Impending Marriage.
- I reviewed the 1969-1970 and 1973-1974 volumes of The Complete Peanuts.
- I continue to enjoy the Grayson series from DC Comics. For this month, I reviewed the third volume of the series. In a time when a lot of DC Comics are a big mess, to put it mildly, this series is an enjoyable entertainment. This and their Harley Quinn run with Conner and Palmiotti are about the only comics I am really enjoying out of DC these days.
- I also read some Star Wars now that it is owned by Marvel, who is now owned by Disney. The book is Vader Down.
