This grew on me a lot. I'm really starting to trust "Weird West" stuff - if I stick with it, I almost always get into it.
Island, by Jason Chin
soooooo pretty. less impressed with the text (it's the biology critic in me), but the art was so good I didn't mind much.
Whipping Girl, by Julia Serano
This memoir / polemic / analysis was mostly very interesting and occasionally challenging / provocative.
A Flight of Angels, by Rebecca Guay et al
I thought I was only reading this for the art (<3 Rebecca Guay), but it turned out that I enjoyed the stories too. Very Sandman-esque.
Humans of New York, by Brandon Stanton
I love love this website and I loved loved loved this book. So nice to just curl up and flip pages; it reminded me of doing similar things with a photo book called The Human Body many moons ago.
Wizards at War, by Diane Duane, read by Christina Moore (audiobook)
I continue to really enjoy this series; this one occasionally felt a little like she was trying to stuff in EVERYTHING possible (in general, and from previous books), but the meat of the story was excellent. Reminded me a bit of T.H. White and Octavia Butler... not stylistically, just in the underlying assumptions (and challenges to those assumptions).
