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 […]

Just happened to see the cover in comiXology’s sale and thought it seemed familiar. I searched my blog to see if I wrote anything about, and I did. I completely forgot I was supposed to be keeping an eye out for it. This collection includes the first six issues. I’m happy to report that it […]
The narration is by the main character, Chihomi who has fallen crazy in love with the new hire, Satoshi, at the cafe she works at. Even though she’s talking about herself throughout the story, I don’t feel like the story is about her at all. It’s definitely about Satoshi and Chihomi is just a device […]
In the seven chapters that I read, I found out how White (the guy dressed in black) and Black (the guy dressed in white) met, some of the things Black’s been up to since then, some of the things that’s happened to and around Black before and since then, but not very much about White. […]
The art is nice and if the panels on a few pages were redone, it could tell a different, wordless story–like something that might have aired on a mature version of Pinwheel–but as it is, the actual story is rather dull.

At first I was curious, then I was anxious. That anxiety dissipated into a stillness, which was a prelude to the feeling of being unsettled. And then I thought, “that’s creepy.” Followed by, “…oh.” And it ended with, “yeah, that’s creepy.”
This is the first of the six books in the comic adaptation of Stephen King’s epic (post-) apocalyptic novel, The Stand. As much as I love this genre, I’m not used to writing about it and add to that that this is my first time fully committing to reading something by Stephen King, and you […]
The ending left me a little dazed. Zoé gets out of jail and leaves the city to live in the house her grandmother left her. The town is aged with a dwindling population, but Zoé seems to like it enough. That is, until she learns the town’s secret. It’s the kind of story that even when you […]
Back in the days of Live Aid and “We are the World,” people with a voice and an audience were putting forth the effort to combat famine across the world, but mostly in Africa. Heroes for Hope was Marvel’s contribution. I am positive that comic book store shelves were emptied of this title solely for […]
