Reading Roundup Wrapup: March 2014

Pick of the month: Foundation by Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen. This was a tough one for me, deciding between this and Matt Thorn's anthology Four Shōjo Stories. In the end, I decided that though I really liked "They Were Eleven" in Four Shōjo Stories, the book as a whole was not quite on that level, and I sided with the engrossing, involving opener to the House of Secrets reboot. Between the Acts and The OMAC Project should probably also get some plaudits.

All books read:
1. Batman: Knightfall by Dennis O’Neil
2. Between the Acts by Virginia Woolf
3. Legion of Super-Heroes Archives, Volume 12 by Jim Shooter, Cary Bates, and Paul Levitz
4. House of Secrets: Foundation by Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen
5. Four Shōjo Stories by Keiko Nishi, Moto Hagio, and Shio Sato
6. The New Adventures: The Mary-Sue Extrusion by Dave Stone
7. Day of Vengeance by Judd Winick and Bill Willingham
8. The OMAC Project by Greg Rucka with Geoff Johns and Judd Winick
9. The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction edited by George Mann
10. The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
11. Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Dark Tide: Onslaught by Michael A. Stackpole
12. Star Wars: Invasion 3: Revelations by Tom Taylor

All books acquired:
1. Star Wars: The Crimson Empire Saga by Mike Richardson and Randy Stradley
2. Star Wars Omnibus: Droids and Ewoks by Dave Manak with George Carragone
3. Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral by John Jackson Miller
4. Star Wars: Jedi, Volume I: The Dark Side by Scott Allie
5. Star Wars Omnibus: The Complete Saga: Episodes I through VI by Henry Gilroy, Miles Lane, Bruce Jones, and Archie Goodwin
6. The New Adventures: The Mary-Sue Extrusion by Dave Stone
7. Star Wars Omnibus: Droids by Dan Thorsland, Ryder Windham, and Jan Strnad with Brian Daley and Anthony Daniels
8. Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cold Equations, Book III: The Body Electric by David Mack

You might be able to deduce that, with the announcement of Dark Horse losing the Star Wars comics license, I am spending the year plugging the gaps in my Star Wars comics collection before they all go out of print.

Books remaining on "To be read" list: 530
