I actually completed a “Baker’s Cannonball” (H/T Sara H) this year, and I closed out my reading for 2011 with Charles Burns’ Black Hole. It’s absolutely fantastic, but you can’t unsee what has been seen.
I’m late, as usual. But, hey, I’ve been up all night baking, so it’s still January 7th to me.
I’m ending Cannonball Read III with a beginning: The beginning of our nation. 1776 is a real page-turner, and a great primer on the Revolutionary War.
That’s a Cannonball! WHEEEE!!
Whys and Wherefores is a worthy ending to a fantastic series.
As penultimate volumes of series go, Motherland is about as good as it gets.
The series gets back on track with Kimono Dragons. Fun times.
Paper Dolls, the seventh volume in Brian K. Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man series, is a little pedestrian, but still a solid volume.
Girl on Girl was probably the weakest volume in the series, but the worst volume in this excellent series is still better than the best volume in many other inferior series.
Surprises are what make “Ring of Truth” one of the best installments of Y: The Last Man yet.
“Safeword” explores the motivation behind Yorick’s reckless behavior, despite that, with every risk he takes, he’s also risking the survival of the human species. It’s good, but not Vaughan’s best work, in my opinion.
“One Small Step” wasn’t my favorite volume in the series, but it was still tons of fun.
