Hugo: Best Graphic Story
Abbott - Saladin Ahmed,Sami Kivela,Jason Wordie
Black Panther: Long Live the King - Nnedi Okorafor
Monstress, No. 3 - Sana Takeda,Marjorie M. Liu
Paper Girls Volume 4 - Brian K Vaughan
Saga Volume 9 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

So I started reading them yesterday and I'm mostly done.  On a sunbeam is a web comic (I can't link from work) and I'm making my way through it, I've read the first few episodes and find it interesting.

 

Again it was hard to choose within an interesting bunch, my favourite was Abbott, ranking the rest was hard.  

Eventually I just decided an order but it was work.

 

Abbott features a female investigative journalist who can see more than she wants to at scenes and a series of grotesque murders.  Stands alone and leaves room for sequels.

 

Black Panther: Long Live the King - Black Panther at home in Wakanda fighting a creature that is destabilising the country.

 

Monstress: Volume 3: Haven - this is so pretty, the artwork is very special and the story winds around and keeps me reading.  You need to have read the previous two books before this.

 

On a Sunbeam is a story of some people travelling around in a spaceship exploring buildings along with some exploration of the past of some of the characters.   Unusual and interesting.

 

Paper Girls - Volume 4 - this one really needed that I read the rest before embarking on it, lost doesn't quite describe it enough.

 

Saga - Volume 9 - I've read the previous stories, the artwork is lush and the story interesting, now I want to know what's going to happen next.

Random ramblings:

Okay, but HOLY FUCKING SHIT.

I haven't realized how good of a reading month I had until I just put everything together for this wrap-up. 8 books. 4 of them reread. Yes, a lot of comics. BUT I seriously loved every single page I read this month. Every book is a five-star read. HOT DAMN. I'm impressed with myself and my reading choices.

Saga Volumes 5-9 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 5 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 6 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 7 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan
Saga Volume 8 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples
Saga Volume 9 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

Rather than do a bunch of reviews all saying the same thing, I decided to just do one big one to say that I enjoy every episode of this space journey...up until volume 9. By the middle of volume 9 I was "oh shit, they went there"; by the end of volume 9 I was "OH SHIT THEY WENT THERE TOO" and now here I am wondering how the survivors are going to continue on both plot wise and emotionally. Still highly recommend the series.

Great volume. The pictures are still amazingly haunting and a bit disturbing and the storyline was very exciting.

Saga Vol. 2!!!
Saga, Volume 2 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

german and english review (spoilerfree)

 

Inhalt: Die fantastische Weltraum-Opera geht in die zweite Runde!
Für die frischgebackenen Eltern Alana und Marko hat die Flucht vom Planeten Kluft gerade erst begonnen … kuriose Menschwesen, eine verrückte Story und ganz große Unterhaltung sind also wieder garantiert!
Der Raketenstart ist gelungen, doch Alana und Marko stehen vor neuen Schwierigkeiten im Weltall. Denn immer noch befinden sich Prinz Robot IV. und der Kopfgeldjäger Der Wille und auf ihren Fersen, um sie gnadenlos zur Strecke zu bringen. Das sind aber nicht alle Probleme, denen die kleine Familie gegenübersteht. Zuerst nämlich muss Alana mit ihren Schwiegereltern klarkommen: Diese habe sich in letzter Sekunde ebenfalls auf das Raumschiff gezaubert und Markos Mutter Klara kann die Liebe ihres Sohnes zu einer Landfall-Frau nicht so einfach akzeptieren! Und Markos Vater hat ein schreckliches Geheimnis mit an Bord gebracht ...und dann ist da noch Gwendolyn, die Marko nie ganz verziehen hat, dass er sie hat sitzen lassen!

 

Meine Bewertung: Noch großartiger als Volume 1!!!

 

Ich liebe einfach die Geschichte, ICH LIEBE DIE CHARAKTERE. Ernsthaft, Alana ist mein Ein und Alles. Ich liebe Marko. UND IZABEL. Ich weiß, das habe ich schon im Band eins gesagt aber ich muss es einfach wiederholen, weil ich gerade mal bei Volume 2 bin und mir die 4, eben auch Baby Hazel, schon total ans Herz gewaschen sind.

 

Die Geschichte geht einfach super weiter. Der Humor ist immer noch wunderbar. Die Zeichnungen sind einfach großartig.

 

ICH BIN EINFACH BEGEISTERT (und ärger mich ein bisschen, dass ich so lange gewartet habe, die Reihe anzufangen. Noch mehr ärger ich mich, dass Volume 3 noch nicht bei mir zu Hause liegt.)

 

***

 

Summary: The smash-hit ongoing epic continues! Thanks to her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana, newborn baby Hazel has already survived lethal assassins, rampaging armies, and alien monstrosities, but in the cold vastness of outer space, the little girl encounters something truly frightening: her grandparents!

 

My review: Even more amazing than volume 1 even was!!!

 

I just love the story. I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS. Seriously, Alana is my everything. I just love Marko. AND IZABEL. I know, I mentioned that already in the review for the first volume but I can't help but repeat myself. I'm only on volume 2 and the four of them, including Baby Hazel, already have a very special place in my heart.

 

The story continues to be amazing. The humor is awesome. The artwork is fucking stunning.

 

I'M JUST IN AWE OF THIS WHOLE THING (and I could kick myself for waiting so long to start it. The thing that annoys me the most is that I don't have the next volume at home already.)
