Delivered on every promise volume 1 made; left me wanting more. The best comic out there right now.
Storyteller: The Authorized Biography of Roald Dahl, by Donald Sturrock
So much irrelevant detail! (But my friend who reads lots of academic biographies said actually, as these things go, it's pretty straightforward and to the point - if a little too reliant on Patricia Neal's version of some things.) Other than that, I really liked it; Sturrock knows how to keep his sentences flowing, and, I mean, it's ROALD DAHL. Who wouldn't want to know more about him? I rather think, though, that I need to go back and reread some of Dahl's stories that I love - I don't want Sturrock's version of him preeminent in my mind over those.
Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil, by Jeff Smith
This was really appealing. Aimed at kids, but not condescending; appropriately absurd and heroic.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, volumes 3 and 4, by Scott Allie et al
Do you like all things Buffy? You would like this. Do you generally feel meh about the comics? You would not like this.

The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss
We read this for book club. The language is lovely and strange and perfect and I love the interwoven voices of the text. A book to sink into rather than nibble.
Dungeon Quest, book 1 by Joe Daly
No one can review this book better than my friend Steve did: "meta + peeners + comic book + D&D = a rare achievement in literature." IT'S TROO.
