new reviews in the last month.
As usual, those are for very varied books, including more lesbian stuff
than I've ever had the pleasure to review. Yay, lesbians. So, an all-inclusive
anthology edited by Jennifer Camper, her two books (which I thought out-of-print
and thus hadn't reviewed yet), a new comic by the artist of Associated
Student Bodies, a manga depicting lesbian love in Tokyo, another anthology

section, you'll see that Kris Dresen has drawn a number
of new Max & Lily strips, Tim Fish has collected in three
handy volumes his Cavalcade

of Leonardo Da Vinci, will be collected
in October, and I have the pleasure of welcoming Tina Anderson for
a series of slash/yaoi reviews, the most recent being

and a long
interview of the recently-deceased erotic artist Sean. As for updates
of already-reviewed series, you can read a few words about
from Hell #5, Dangerous
5 & 6 and the Leonard
& Larry fourth and probably last book. Finally, there are
short reviews for
Hall's mini-comic Only In San Francisco, as well as his True
Travel Tales #4, the darkly funny adventures of Devlin
Waugh: Swimming in Blood and Anubis
And of course, I've added a raft of links, as well as lots of drawings
in the gallery.
to do another of these newsletters in less than six months... I hope you
all had an enjoyable summer time and that we'll meet again before the
next snow (which is entirely possible since it snows about once a year
where I live, and usually not at the beginning of winter. Interesting,
isn't it? Okay, I'll shut up now).
