Early Review: The Rise of Aurora West (Battling Boy Prequel) by Paul Pope, J. T. Petty, & David Rubin

Early Review: The Rise of Aurora West (Battling Boy Prequel) by Paul Pope, J. T. Petty, & David Rubin

September 26, 2014 Review 0

THE RISE OF AURORA WEST takes familiar superhero tropes and flips them to a new angle, like a Batman story told through Robin’s eyes. Though Aurora’s monster fighting skills are a credit to her training, she’s also the intellectually curious lens through which readers question her world. Where did this war against monsters begin? Where do they come from? And what really happened all those years ago on the night when Aurora’s mother died…

Review: Sailor Twain by Mark Siegel

Review: Sailor Twain by Mark Siegel

April 18, 2014 Review 0

SAILOR TWAIN is a sensuous experience, from the rough paper petting the finger tips to the soft, blurred images seducing the reader into it’s world. After the first, mysterious chapter, it was Captain Twain himself that was my anchor. Solid, loyal, hardworking… and so obviously drifting closer and closer to a maelstrom of seduction and magic.

Review: Fairest In All the Land by Bill Willingham

Review: Fairest In All the Land by Bill Willingham

December 1, 2013 Review 2

A while back I read a blog post (I can’t remember where) extolling the virtues of the Fables series of comics/graphic novels. I picked up Fables Volume 1 and have been hooked ever since! So, when FAIREST IN ALL THE LAND showed up, I knew I had to read it. FAIREST IN ALL THE LAND is a stand-alone graphic novel set in the same world as the Fables and Fairest series, with a murder mystery and a magic mirror subplot, and is as enchanting as all the others, with lovely artwork by many different artists.

Early Review: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega Graphic #2) by Patricia Briggs, David Lawrence, Todd Herman, Jenny Frison

Early Review: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega Graphic #2) by Patricia Briggs, David Lawrence, Todd Herman, Jenny Frison

May 6, 2013 Review 1

When the world is as lush and mystical as Patricia Briggs has created for the Alpha and Omega series, it just begs to be adapted to a visual form. This graphic novelization (which includes issues 5-8 of the comics) is once again brought to vivid life by David Lawrence, Todd Herman, and Jenny Frison. It’s an excellent team, as this volume, is even more beautiful than the first.

Review: Guarded (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9, #3)

Review: Guarded (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9, #3)

May 5, 2013 Review 0

On last week’s episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY, Leonard decides Buffy is the perfect show for he and Penny to share. At the end of an episode Penny says it was “Cute”. This really has nothing to do with the review, but the scene was serious deja vu for me. I can’t count how many times I’ve tried to get my fiancĂ© to watch Buffy. It’s gotten to the point that I’m starting to take it personally.

Review: Angel & Faith Family Reunion (Season 9, Volume 3)

Review: Angel & Faith Family Reunion (Season 9, Volume 3)

April 14, 2013 Review 2

I don’t think I’ve ever replied to an email faster than I did when Abigail sent one out asking if anyone wanted to review comics set in the Buffyverse. I’ve been a fan of the show since the first episode aired and I may be a little (scarily, if you ask my fiancĂ©) obsessed.
