Read-a-Thon Wrap-Up

Whew! I got through quite a bit of my stack of TBR graphic novels today. Books I read:

Bombaby, by Anthony Mazzotta, a comic about a young Indian girl about to get married, who may be the incarnation of an ancient goddess,

Diary of the Black Widow, a very entertaining comic by Bret M. Herholz, about a young woman who marries and kills,

Lummox, volumes 1-3, by Dan Mazur, about an unwitting superhero,

Glister, Issue One, by Andi Watson, about a young English girl who finds a haunted teapot,

I Feel Like a Grown-up Now, by Scott Dikkers, the last of the Jim's Journal series,

Rex Libris: I Librarian, by James Turner, an entertaining comic about a librarian-superhero,

Klezmer: Tales of the Wild East, by Joann Sfar, about traveling Klezmer musicians in pre-war Eastern Europe,

The Metamorphosis, by Franz Kafka and Peter Kuper, an adaptation of the classic story,
Buddha, Volume 1 Kapilavatsu, by Osamu Tezuka, volume 1 of 8 about the life of the Buddha, and

Maybe Later, by Charles Berberian and Philippe Dupuy, a dual account of the creation of their professional partnership and Mr. Jean series.

You'll be seeing reviews of many of these books in upcoming Graphic Novel Mondays posts.
