Ultimate X-Men: Volume 1 / Mark Millar

TITLE: Ultimate X-Men: Volume 1
AUTHOR: Mark Millar

FYI... If you're looking for a popular read, check out a copy of Mark Millar's Ultimate X-Men: Volume 1. This is the MOST checked out graphic novel in both the Teen and Adult graphic novel collections @ FRE! I think that speaks for itself! This GN has checked out so much, multiple copies have had to be purchased to replace the worn out and lost ones!

Another pattern... Batman seems to be rather popular among Cumberland County patrons. If you're interested in some popular Batman GNs, head to the shelves and look for some of these titles:


Batman: Child of Dreams


Batman: Dark Victory


Batman Huntress: Cry for Blood


Batman: Hush, Volume 1

Creature Tech / Doug TenNapel (graphic novel)

TITLE: Creature Tech

AUTHOR: Doug TenNapel


Description from the library catalog, which was borrowed from Booklist:

"Out in Turlock, California, all hell breaks loose when a mad scientist's spirit opens one of the crates of top-secret stuff at the Research Technical Institute, aka Creature Tech because of rumors, essentially correct, about what sort of things go on there."

M's Verdict: This is the first time I really had to refer to the library catalog description in order to, well, describe a book I read. Creature Tech is a great read for anyone who is intrigued by mad scientists, giant dead space eels, demonic cats, slugbeasts, the supernatural, and alien organisms. Although it's a bit of a bizarre premise, it is definitely not a dull storyline and the illustrations, as always, are impressive. If you're looking for something a bit less bizarre, try TenNapel's Ghostopolis, which is still pretty unusual, but a bit less... supernatural??
