TRoOB -- Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl

[Here's something I don't think I've ever done in the twenty years of The Review of Obscure Books -- a TRoOB preview.]

Those of you who follow my LJ may remember my review, a year or so ago, of Phonogram -- The Singles Club. My assessment at the time was that it was the best comic of 2010, and that opinion has largely held up (with the possible exception of the equally-brilliant daytripper).

So thanks to hungrytiger for pointing me at the great news that Phonogram Volume 3 is coming in November. It will apparently be expanding on the story of Emily Aster, probably the most intriguing of the seven stories in The Singles Club. Emily's issue there hinted at a lot of backstory, and really didn't resolve much: now we're apparently going to get more depth.

It's great news, and I'm very much looking forward to it. I strongly recommend adding it to your pull list when it comes out, or at least planning to buy the inevitable collection afterwards. (I suspect I'll be getting both, but I'm impatient.)
