Oddly Normal #10

Oct 2, 2015 by

4.5 Stars, Buy it   Self Purchase, Comixology Finally getting back to reviewing some comics on my lunch break.  We were slammed at work for a few weeks so I didn’t have much time. I’m finally recovered. Love the school bug. I adore the little critter that follows Oddly around (See issue 9).  I still love the art work and color. I like how they talk about comic books.   Basically in this issue Oddly goes to school and attends her first sporting event. Over all, sweet and fun. But in the back of the issue is bad news. This is the last individual issue of Oddly Normal. It apparently does better in book format. Good news is, the individual chapters should still be coming out digitally, which is how I read them. So, I’m...

Lumberjanes #18

4 Stars, Buy it   Self Purchase, Comixology Don’t like this new artist as much. The characters don’t look the same. I don’t like that they all look like they have pig noses now.I hate it when they switch artists or writers. Booo. Anyway, the girls go fishing and catch a mermaid. Of course they get pulled into the mermaid drama.  Despite there being a new artist, the writing is still pretty awesome.  This was fun and it will definitely be interesting to see what happens next.  The mermaids are definitely a bunch of fun. Description (Comixology): When April meets two mermaids who used to be friends but are now stuck in a crazy rivalry, she decides to put her friendship repairing skills to the test!...

Gunnerkrigg Court #5

5 Stars, Buy it   Self Purchase, Hardback edition   Yeay! In the first chapter, Kat agrees to go on a date with a girl. WHOO HOO!!  The rest of the chapter I found a little confusing. But after I read it a few times I finally figured out what was going on. In the second part, Reynard is up to no go with someone named Hetty. In part 3 or chapter 44- Annie talks with Ysengrim and they go to some ruins. At this point I stopped taking notes and reading this dragged out to a few weeks so I can’t remember everything that happened.   I was afraid that this volume wouldn’t be as good as the previous volumes, but I was pleasantly surprised. I’m ecstatic that Kat’s character is finally going...

Assasin’s Apprentice

Sep 9, 2015 by

4.5 Stars, Buy it I won this paperback via goodreads. This book really pulls you in and keeps you there.  This is the story of Fitz, a prince’s bastard child. Fitz is basically raised by the Prince’s stable person (Burrich). And while at first you don’t really like Burrich, toward the end of the book things happen that make you really happy that he turns out to be a great person.  Fitz is being raised to be an Assassin’s apprentice and this book marks the first part of his life. (I’m hoping the second and third in this trilogy continue Fitz’s story). Fitz of course has ups and downs, but fortunately, most of the plot does not prove to be anxiety provoking for me.  My favorite thing about Fitz is his love of animals...

Oddly Normal #9

5 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology   I like the cover which is worth mentioning and I really love the art in this series. This issue is Oddly with her new friends still trying to find her a birthday present. The gift finds its way to Oddly and is adorable.  The ending of this issue is super sweet and it of course it was over way too soon. And so I will have to wait months for another issue to come out. Sigh. Definitely the best issue yet....

Nimona

Aug 27, 2015 by

5 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Kindle Edition Hey Look, I’m alive. And back at work. Yeay for antibiotics! Nimona is a shapeshifter who becomes a sidekick to a villain named Ballistar Blackheart.  This is the story of their adventures. The story is hilarious and well written. At first I was a bit put off by the art, but then it started to grow on me as I read more.  Nimona’s character is awesome and spunky. Ballistar Blackheart is a villain who really isn’t a villain. I particularly love when they rob the bank and then play “world domination” or monopoly.I love how Blackheart was apparantly in a relationship with another man. This was one seriously awesome graphic novel. I recommend it to anyone. It’s funny and sad and overall just terrific. I was...
