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...

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!...

Jem & The Holograms #7

4 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology You can definitely tell the artist has changed. It’s not so bad, just a little different.  The people look slightly different. Jerrica is overwhelmed with work. Kimber is upset about Stormer. The misfits get a new manager. Rio and Jerrica get into a bit of a fight.   There are some other developments but no need to ruin any surprises.  It’s a good issue but not super fantastic. Still worth buying though. Description:VIRAL PART 1! Jerrica and her sisters face their biggest threat yet–success! Meanwhile, the Misfits aren’t taking these upstarts laying down… as they find themselves under new management…...

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...

SPOLIERs   4 Stars, Buy it   Self Purchase, Comixology   Olive and some other kids join the school play to investigate the school ghost, who might be Olive’s mother.  Maps feels left out when she discovers Olive didn’t tell her she thought the ghost was Olive’s mother. Olive is attacked while on stage.  Turns out Katherine, roommate of one of the girls, is the one who has caused all the problems with the school play. Then Katherine turns out to be part of Clayface (yes, from Batman). It has a twist at the ending which I won’t give away but of course it makes one want to read the next issue now.   Still totally adore Maps. Still really like Olive. Still really like the series. This was  a good to – very...

Elves #1: The Crystal of the Blue Elves 1/2...

4 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology I really loved the art in this. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked the story or not but by the end, I really wanted to see what was next.  I felt like you were kind of thrown into the middle of the story without much background. The numbering is a bit weird, but I suspect it’s because it’s a foreign comic. I will be interested to see where this might go. Description (Comixology): The Blue Elves of Ennlya, a small port town of Nordrenn, have been murdered!Lanawyn, a Blue Elf, and Turin, her human ally, set out to discover who is responsible. The trail they uncover leads back to a clan of Yrlans – Northern men who hate Elves.At the same time, Vaalann, a young...
