Top row (l-r): Joel Meadows' new Tripwire magazine (no.54) is out now and it's absolutely packed full of great reading - visit the website to learn more and you can order a copy there too. This issue also includes a short interview with me; the latest Cinebook release from Leo is Betelgeuse vol 3: The Other - I think this is a fantastic series and I snap these up as soon as they're released, though this is the last in the current saga; NBM's latest Dungeon release is Twilight vol 3: The New Centurions - one of my favourite series (as I mentioned in Forbidden Planet International's recent Bastille Day piece).
Second row (l-r): Mw by Osamu Tezuka - I'm only a little way into this 582-page manga but am pretty gripped already; Fantagraphics recently translated Tardi's stunning and harrowing It Was the War of the Trenches; Alex Milway's new book, part-comic, part-prose, Operation Robot Storm - chock-full of Yetis!
Third row (l-r): Black Blizzard by Yoshihiro Tatsumi - I bought this after reading the author's autobiographical A Drifting Life, this is an early work and fairly crude by today's standards, but still an excellent (if unsurprising) read; Darryl Cunningham's brilliant Psychiatric Tales - highly original, wonderfully drawn, educational (though not at all preachy) - a very readeable and important comic - I think everyone should get themselves a copy (and it's published by the marvellous Blank Slate Books); Wilson by Daniel Clowes - bought after seeing Clowes and Chris Ware at the Brighton Corn Exchange a few weeks ago, a darkly enjoyable read if a little monotone - good though!
