Blue Monday: Painted Moon

Blue Monday: Painted Moon picks up after Absolute Beginners, with Bleu caught in the fallout of rumors about the videotape of her nude. (A short introductory comic makes fun of this order, and the actual plot points are explained inside the story in case the reader needs a memory nudge.) She’s crushing even harder on her substitute teacher, perhaps to try and forget about the other rotten things going on. Victor’s trying to do nice things for her to make […]

Blue Monday: Inbetween Days

Inbetween Days reprints various holiday-themed stories with the Blue Monday characters by Chynna Clugston. “Dead Man’s Party” is set at Halloween. When the lights go out at a holiday party, the gang entertain themselves by telling horror stories. Since they’re realistic teenagers, they come up with ideas by inserting themselves in their favorite movies and books. The wide range of influences used adds to the entertainment, though. There aren’t many comics that range from zombie films to Gothic vampire romances […]

Blue Monday: Absolute Beginners

Absolute Beginners is the second book in the Blue Monday series (after The Kids Are Alright), and the kids are going in costume to a 1930s-style mystery party.

Geisha

Geisha literally means “art person”, and that phrase has several meanings in Geisha by Andi Watson. Jomi, our hero, is herself a work of art: she’s a synthetic construct, raised as part of a human family. She’s also a painter, although she has to work in the family business (as a bodyguard) to pay the rent. Her client is a supermodel, a woman whose person appears as street art (advertisements). And her search is for a patron, a person to […]
