Cosmic Vinegar, October 2012
Welcome to the beginning of Cosmic Vinegar volume 2! Newest issue features another review essay, combined with chapter 17 of The Million, which continues the adventures of Nike and her friends. This is also a great time to pick up the Season One compilation if you haven’t yet. But don’t fret: You can dive into Season Two without much foreknowledge. (It’ll catch up with you someday….)

The art here is by Valeriya Volkova, a wonderful artist I met courtesy of reddit. Visit her site and check out her other work, it’s wonderful. I’m really excited about the reviews this month as well–one story is by the insightful and playful Lavie Tidhar, and another by newcomer Benjanun Sriduangkaew. Please check out the stories in addition to reading the review; they’re both quite good and will get you thinking. (The review page has links.)
Finally, in chapter 17 of The Million, we’re introduced to the second season story arc. New problems, familiar friends, same old brash water saleswoman. If you’ve been curious about how exactly they get all the ice/water down to the planets, well, get to reading! This season gets all up in that.
And now to work on November!
