The last time we voted on what to read next, "Habibi" won the poll, and two books, "Criminal" and "Incognito", both by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, tied for second place.
Alphabetical order seemed to be the fairest way to decide which of the two we'd discuss first, so for our next meetup, we'll be reading "Criminal, Volume 6 - the Last of the Innocent".
If you've forgotten what the story is about, here's a brief reminder:
"Obsession, sex, money, and nostalgia for days long past all collide in "The Last of the Innocent". Riley Richards had it all - the hottest girl in school and a ticket to the big time. So why isn't he happy now? Why can't he forget the life he left behind in small town Brookview? And why is he plotting a murder? "
(A few notes: Each volume of Criminal is a standalone story, so you don't have to have read any of the earlier books before reading this one. Also, while the summary I used doesn't say so explicitly, "Riley Richards" and the cast of characters in "The Last of the Innocent" are actually a thinly-veiled version of the Archie comics gang...)
We'll be back at the Overlook for this event. Hope to see you all there!
