Single Issue Comic Roundup

Book Reviews

I don't mark them on GoodReads, I don't really talk about them much on the blog, and I don't even keep them on my bookshelf, but I do enjoy single issue comics! Back in Pittsburgh I used to live within walking distance of an awesome comic book shop, which was above my all time favorite art shop. I would drop in before/after my shifts at Starbucks and grab new art…

Books for Breakfast #98

Lucky Penny by Anath Hirsh and Yuko Ota & City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare This was a comic that I backed on Kickstarter. Comics being the majority of things I back on Kickstarter actually. I loved the art style and immediately checked out some other comics by the artist and put them on my reading list! (They've worked on some Adventure Time issues!! Awesome!) It's a super fun…

The reads this time were: Ms. Marvel. Vol. 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson & The Martian by Andy Weir I talked about the first volume a while back, and I finished up the second volume last month! I just really love this comic!

Fictional Fridays #19 – Web Comics

Book Reviews

I've been recently enamored with web comics, actually, it probably happened back when I got into Tumblr and web comic artists started sharing weekly panels there, which then got me more into comics than I already was. So, after my very lazy past month of on and off blogging (my apologies) I present to you my favorite way to procrastinate! Reading web comics! Ava's Demon One of my favorite webcomics…

Comics, Comics, Comics!

Lately I've been getting really into comic books, like the ones that get released once a month that I pick up from the comic book store right down the street from me. Seriously, living close to a comic book store is the best thing ever!! Anyways, I wanted a talk a bit about my new found love of comic books! I've read online comics for quite a while and supported…

The Nerdy Bookworm

Book Reviews

I normally don't read much in way of comic books. I stuck more to manga. Then recently, after getting interested in online comics, that lead me to reading some serialized comic books! I started with Adventure Time and the spin off: Fiona and Cake. I live right by a big comic book shop, that also sells manga, and other knick-naks. Online I found out about Lumberjanes and Bee & Puppycat.…

Three Books I’m Excited About!

I love fairy tales and learning about the culture behind them. This is…
