Super Sons: The Polarshield Project by Ridley Pearson My rating: 4 of 5 stars 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 This book is evidently not aimed at me or my peers, however, I still managed to enjoy the fun, face-paced storytelling and my previous experience with the Super Sons filled in a lot of information gaps that […]
Justice League, Vol. 1: The Totality by Scott Snyder My rating: 2 of 5 stars 🌟 🌟 I liked the unique and interesting character interactions that come out of the main plot but, honestly, I didn’t enjoy the book that much overall. Quite complex, nuanced and overly-convoluted concepts are thrown at you in quick succession, […]
BLACK, Vol. 1 by Kwanza Osajyefo My rating: 3 of 5 stars 🌟 🌟 . 5 I was really intrigued by the overall concept of this book, and was really excited to see it executed but was overall quite disappointed. I loved the artwork, the issue covers in particular with the added red to the series’ […]
Batman and the Justice League Vol. 1 by Shiori Teshirogi – Comic Book Review Not a great deal stuck with me following my finishing of this one. I was originally quite excited by the idea of the Justice League interpreted in the manga style, after all Marvel’s Manga-verse went down pretty well within my purview, however, […]
Justice League: The Darkseid War by Geoff Johns – Comic Book Review This review contains spoilers. As a new comic book reader, I hear a lot about DC’s various ‘crises’ and their world-altering (and most definitely not publication driven) effects on the wider DC universe. As a very process-driven person, this all seemed messy to me, […]
Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 2 by Grant Morrison – Comic Book Review I enjoyed the interesting and modern take on Wonder Woman this book presented, in particular on some of Diana’s most iconic villains. Dr Leon Zeiko (Dr Psycho) in particular was a very interesting and clever choice, presented more as a reality-based, troll sharing […]
First, a thank you to Edelweiss and DC Comics for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Review This book was utterly captivating. As the description states, this book contemplates the ramifications of a ‘cured’ (read: sane) Joker who portrays (and quite possibly believes) Batman to be the true terror […]
First, a thank you to Edelweiss and DC Comics for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Review This book introduces a new character to the DC mythology, one Mr Ethan “Elvis” Avery who for one hour every day turns into a hulking, huge, living weapon of mass destruction controlled […]
First, a thank you to the author, Jason Pittman for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Review The War for Kaleb is a brilliant and heartfelt snapshot into the mind and life of someone who suffers with an anxiety disorder. This book explores anxiety as a mental illness and […]
First, a thank you to Edelweiss and DC Comics for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Disclaimers I have read the issue in Dark Days: Road to Metal with Duke Thomas in, and had heard a lot about him from his episode on the Geek History Lesson podcast, but […]
First, a thank you to Edelweiss and DC Ink for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Disclaimers I have not read any Harley Quinn solo titles prior to this book, equally, this is the first DC Ink title I have read. The ARC I received contained only the first […]
First, a thank you to Edelweiss and DC Comics for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Disclaimers I have never read any of Archie Comics before, though I’m somewhat familiar with the characters through the TV adaptions Sabrina & Riverdale. I have also never read and Harley & Ivy stories […]
You may notice that I have changed my Comic Book Review layout. I found that reading back on them, that layout turned out longer reviews than really needed, and gave too much away for my taste (well, present/future me, past me thought it was a great idea). The headings, which I know work great for […]
I know some of you may be a little bit confused because you were expecting Jordanne but instead you got me!…I’m sorry. Think of it as a lesson in appreciating what you have!
I guess I should let you know who me, is. I’m Irina and I have a blog. The name of my blog should tell you all you need to know about me. A little while ago Jordanne sent me an email with a project proposition. – Quick aside here, Jordanne is one of the great email authors of our day! If you can somehow convince her to send you one, do so. You will not regret it! – Jordanne basically figured we could contribute posts to each other’s blogs to give our respective readers a bit of diversity.
So if you were really looking forward to one of Jordanne’s posts – good news, you can read her 10 reasons to watch Voltron over HERE. As for me – Jordanne suggested something along the lines of Top 5 manga to suggest to new manga readers. I’ve often thought of creating a sot of beginners reading list but I have a very tough time putting them together. After all, it depends so much on the person’s individual tastes. So instead, I figured you might like to hear about the first 5 manga I read. They certainly inspired me to keep on reading manga so it may work for you.
You should know that I read all of these in French so I can’t vouch for their English translations but I assume they’re EVEN BETTER!Read More »
“…full of action and adventure and it was well paced over the 5 issues with some nail-biting cliff-hangers that made me grateful I had waited for the trade paperback and didn’t have to wait for the next one to come out!”
I received this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Minor spoilers, just to do with character appearances but if you read the list of creators, it kind of spoils them anyway? Disclaimers I haven’t read the first four volumes of this series or any Wonder Woman in general, but I’ve been wanting […]
I received this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review – and boy, was I excited about it! DC! ARCs! Eeeek! Admittedly it’s a little late but I really wanted to take my time and do a good job plus I got approved for this the day before release, I may love them […]
