July Books 18) Agatha Heterodyne and the Guardian Muse, by Phil and Kaja Foglio

I haven't actually finished this, but I've simply lost interest; despite having read the two previous volumes in the series (this is the tenth) I can't remember why I was supposed to care about any of the characters, and I'm going to do something else with my time.

Which concludes my reading for the Best Graphic Story category of this year's Hugo Awards. My votes will be as follows:

6) Schlock Mercenary: Massively Parallel, written and illustrated by Howard Tayler
5) Girl Genius, Volume 10: Agatha Heterodyne and the Guardian Muse, written by Phil and Kaja Foglio
4) No Award
3) Grandville Mon Amour, by Bryan Talbot
2) Fables: Witches, written by Bill Willingham
1) The Unwritten, Volume 2: Inside Man, written by Mike Carey

Previous Hugo category write-ups (though the Campbell Award is Not A Hugo): Best Novel, Best Novella, Best Novelette, Best Short Story, Best Related Work, Best Dramatic Presentation - Long Form, Best Dramatic Presentation - Short Form, John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer 2011 (Not A Hugo)
