A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Rather than drowning you in all the books I’m currently reading–look new book!–I’m gonna tell you about what I just finished and loved: The Black Ghost is an upcoming Comixology original series and I read the first issue and can’t wait for more. It’s like Monica Gallagher and Alex Segura took a superhero origin story and a noir detective novel and perfectly mashed them together into a modern take that flips the script on a bunch of stuff. Its start is so good that I’m going to be really impatient between issues.
At the center of a venn diagram with Natsuo Kirino, Kanae Minato, Silence of the Lambs, and The Bad Child is Mi-ae Seo’s upcoming novel The Only Child! I read it in two sittings and it made me angry that more crime novels aren’t translated. It asks the question of nurture vs nature when a dark criminal mind meets a kind, optimistic, criminal psychologist.
