I first read In these Words V01 back in June of 2012; I continued on to chapter eight and then stopped. The Redux arc starts with chapter nine, so until now I only had the vaguest of idea of what was truly going on in the story. Last night I read the 2015 edition of […]
Jeremy’s a weird guy and he knows it and life sucks extra hard when there are so many things that trigger his insecurities and the haunting shadows of his past. Hoping to find meaning and somewhere to belong, he joins one of his favorite indie bands. To work on their second album, the four of […]
The print came in November and I got the PDF before that, but I’m only now getting around to reading it. I backed this for Kori Michele’s contribution, an “x years later” for Prince of Cats. It was a little sad, but didn’t end that way. I’m happy I got to read it. I wasn’t […]

Lots of jealousy coming from Yokozawa and a bit from Kirishima, too. I realized two things with this volume. First, and I don’t know how I missed it, but they have […]
Man, I want more of this! Deacon is an android–the peculiar one of a peculiar class–who prefers the label inhuman. Jeff is a human who owes his outsider status to a flaw in his X chromosome. A few years ago, I noticed that I had developed a thing for robots and the like. Or rather, […]
