Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell’s third novel, is chock full of the great characters and witty dialogue readers have come to expect from Rowell, all while delving into a fictional world within a fictional world. It’s imaginative, great fun, and well worth a read (or two or three).

Michael Lark Lazarus #7 Interview, Part 1

Lazarus Cover 7

A great comic series is as much a product of the breathtaking artwork as it a product of stellar writing. When the two blend together into a seamless story, the story carries much more weight than if only one factor carried the series. Fans of Lazarus know that the partnership between Greg Rucka and Michael Lark […]

(P)Review: Jason Tagmire’s Storyteller Cards and SC: Fantasy

Elf Bard

When I heard that Jason Tagmire, designer of the retro-pixelly deckbuilding card game Pixel Lincoln, was doing a new Kickstarter for a fantasy-themed deck of Storyteller Cards with art by Campbell Whyte (the Australian artist behind 8-Bit Dreams, a series of 365 daily drawings inspired by old Nintendo games), the combination of factors seemed so perfect for […]

Comic Review: Lumberjanes #1

Lumberjanes #1

Lumberjanes is pretty much a perfect cocktail of everything you could love between the covers of a monthly comic book issue.  Not only is the writing top notch from Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis, but Brooke Allen’s art is also sophisticated and sharp, with panel after panel of verbal cues that support the jokes and […]

DoomPatrolSquare

I’m about three months behind on reading new comics. I’m collecting a lot of books I’m really excited about right now, with concepts that I’m intrigued by or by creators whose work I consistently enjoy. But none of that has changed the fact that I’m about three months behind on reading new comics. There’s only […]

Comic Review: Detective Comics #30

Tec30Square

Of late, it seems that DC Comics has been working on paring down their Bat-titles. Gone are Batman Incorporated and Batman: The Dark Knight, leaving only three solo Bat-books on stands. Much of that paring is likely in anticipation of the soon-to-launch Batman: Eternal weekly series, but the fact remains that there are now fewer […]
