Continuing to catch up with all the graphic novels I’ve read in 2016 so far. (You can read Part I here.) This list takes us up to March, which I’ll post later this month or early next month.
A bit late getting this one out… Hope you’ll find something of interest here:
It’s always difficult keeping up with new titles while trying to catch up on comics you’ve missed from previous years. Huge gaps remain in my comics reading, some of which I attempted to correct this year. Plus, there are always a few books from recent years that demand your attention. So here are the books I enjoyed that were not published in 2015:
I hope you’ll find something of interest in the list below. Happy reading!
Derek and I had the great pleasure to interview Jonathan Case recently about his new graphic novel from Dark Horse called The New Deal. You can hear that interview here, where we discuss not only Case’s new book, but also the award-winning true crime graphic novel Green River Killer: A True Detective Story with art by Case and written by Jeff Jensen. The book has just been reissued in trade paperback. Hope you’ll give us a listen!

October has become the new November. People are already crazy busy, so much so that I wanted to bring to your attention a few things that I don’t want you to miss:
We’ve still got one week left in September, but if I don’t get started now, I’ll never finish. I had a big weekend at SPX last weekend and you’ll see some of those books here and many more next time. Let’s get started…
It’s rare that Derek and I talk on The Comics Alternative Podcast about comics we don’t like, but it may be rarer still for us to talk about three comics that we really, really liked. I can safely say that all three of the titles we discussed on the most recent episode of the podcast are all very good. I hope you’ll check out the show and the comics themselves.
