What I’m Reading – Graphic Novels
Astronauts of the Future
I read this after reading French Graphic Novelist Manu Larcent’s brilliant Ordinary Victories. This is a hard plot to describe without ruining the whole story, but its basically about two kids who believe that most if not all of the humans in the world are actually robots or aliens. This is incredibly cool.
After Brian Michael Bendis did Avengers Disassembled, he wrote the New Avengers. Bendis follows Captain America and what led him to form a new team with Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine and others. This was a very interesting read and features my favorite super villain of all time, Electro. The art is inconsistent, but the story is solid and entertaining.
