Trinity by Matt Wagner
A stunning presentation that pits Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman against Bizarro, Ra's al Ghul, and a rogue amazon in a race to save and/or rule the world. The story digs deeply into the history of the six charactes, giving glimpse especially into the shaping of the three legendary superheroes. The story is well conceived and well told and the art is well matched to it. If you've ever enjoyed stories of these three american icons, you should definitely read Trinity! -- I loved it.

The Secret Under My Skin by Janet McNaughton
In a post-apocalyptic dystopic society Blay Raytee is chosen to leave the orphan work camp and become a helper to the new bio-indicator. What she discovers, in the house that she comes to call home, is a web of carefully controlled government lies, crafted to keep the populace at bay. She also unearths her own secret history and new talents of her own while desperately trying to do the job she was chosen for and not give herself away. It's a time and place of unsettling danger as well as hope. A good read; I quite enjoyed it.
