What trade should we read together for our August Comic Book of the Month? Nominate your pick here!

This month's theme is "main character is female."

Titles nominated this month must have a female main character. If you have any questions or concerns, please send a message to mod Kate, who is happy to help. You can find the complete 2018 theme calendar here.

- Nominated titles must be TPB comics or original graphic novels.
- Only the first volume of a series may be nominated, unless the group has already read the previous volume(s) as a book of the month. To see what we've read, check out our group's bookshelf.
- Nominated titles cannot have the same writer as the previous month's BotM winner. This month, that's Kohei Horikoshi.
- Nominated titles must fit the month's theme. To see past and upcoming themes, check out the 2018 theme calendar.
- Only one nomination per person.
- You can "second" a nomination in place of nominating a different book, but this will count as your nomination for the month. Seconded books will receive an additional chance of being selected in the randomization process.
- If a title you nominate wins BotM, please refrain from nominating another title for one month to give others a chance.

Nomination & Voting Schedule:
To better accommodate our increasing number of members, the nomination and voting schedule is as follows every month:

16th: Nomination forum opens
23rd: Nomination forum closes; 5 nominations are selected at random; Voting opens
30th: Voting closes

More details on our updated nomination and voting procedures can be found here.

I've wanted to read this for a while as I get familiar with some of the less well known Marvel heroes.

I'm sorry gang, I really goofed this month and forgot to post the rules with this thread. I've added them to the top of this page. I apologize for any confusion.

Cansu Ceren and Jon: Paper Girls, Vol. 1 and The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act have already been books of the month. Would you like to nominate volume 2?
