I haven’t ordered any physical books in a while, so when I get a package I always wonder if I was sleep-shopping and should expect a stream of packages and a dent in my wallet. But this was a great surprise. The last time I thought about this, I honestly couldn’t remember whether I pledged for […]

It’s so glossy! I got my copy of the first volume of Kamikaze. They had a great Kickstarter. I generally opt for the digital tier, but I, for reasons I’m unaware of now, chose the print for this comic. I don’t regret it; it’s such a pretty book.
From the book: This anthology is based in Southeast Asia. A little corner of the world most made of former colonies and fishing-villages-turned-cities, a rich history mostly overshadowed by East Asia. In this book, we encouraged female-led narratives, hoping to tell the tale of these cultures through the eyes of their daughters. Coaxing half-remembered childhod [sic] […]
Lina Ngo–spicybara, an artist on Tumblr who has done a lot of fanart that I like, particularly KHR and Haikyuu!!–released this original comic. Pre-orders went up towards the end of April. It looked so cute, I just had to get it. It’s even prettier in up close. Even though I generally associate spicybara with BL, […]
I don’t have it in me to be that honorable–not for two and a half years. I would have just found myself a plot of land a worked it or slept on it. Well, I wouldn’t have been a samurai in the first place. I’ve heard of the story, but never experienced any of its […]
Strolling through Uncanny! after dinner might become a habit. Like a digestif or something. This time I was with the BFF and she was like a kid in a candy store. She reads Jem & The Holograms, which I didn’t know. Our taste in comics don’t seem to meet much. But that’s fine, I’m just […]
I finally finished this series! It was good and held my attention all the way through. Most of what I wrote about the first volume held out until the end. However, I wasn’t too keen on that very last encounter–it rang false. Well, maybe not false, but unimaginative and limited in scope. I think I […]
I’m challenging myself to forego rereading a favorite and to instead read something I haven’t read before. This is totally a no-pressure thing for me because I hate obligations, but I think I can do it, so I’m putting it out there. It seems simple enough, but I have so many books that I haven’t […]
He’s a brand specialist at a department store and this job that begins with a love for fashion comes to an end in a blaze of stress, unbecoming behavior and paranoia. Throughout his telling of this stop-over period in his life, we learn about his passion for comics and struggles with relationships. But all is […]
My stalled collection of Calvin and Hobbes collections. I’m trying to think of another comic strip that I liked as much as C and H or even simply liked, but I’m drawing a blank.
