(REVIEW) The Night of Knives ~ V.E. Schwab (Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince Vol. 2)

Rating: 3 stars Better than the first one but also way worse. I liked some aspects but found them to be rushed and undeveloped. The trials themselves ended too quickly for any satisfying resolution and the main conflict came a little out of nowhere. The big plot twist was obvious from the start to anyone […]

(REVIEW) City of Bones: Graphic Novel Issue #1 ~ Mike Raicht

Rating: 2 stars I was intrigued by this failed first attempt at a comic adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones, but it wasn’t available anywhere online, seemingly having been purged from the internet. But I managed to find a copy of all the released issues. I didn’t expect it to be good, but I […]

(REVIEW) The Graveyard Book ~ Neil Gaiman (PLUS the comic edition)

Rating: 4 stars (comic rating: 3 stars) Buddy read with Nana the Novelty! “You’re always you, and that don’t change, and you’re always changing, and there’s nothing you can do about it.” So, it took me a really long time to read this, for no reason other than that I’ve been in a slump these […]

(ARC REVIEW) Ophiuchus ~ Alexis Leriger de la Plante & Natasha Tara Petrovic

Rating: 5 stars I received this eARC from Image Comics via Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. “It’s pretty simple. A world built on genocide and slavery isn’t a world worth existing!” The Art THE COLORS!!!! This was beautiful!!!! The color palate […]

(REVIEW) American Vampire, Vol. 1 ~ Scott Snyder & Stephen King

Rating: 2 stars I haven’t been living under a rock. I know that the names Scott Snyder and Stephen King are enough to make random people turn their heads when they overhear you in a supermarket. So I figured, why not tackle both names at once? Why not read a comic they wrote together? And […]

(REVIEW) Blackbird, Vol. 1 ~ Sam Humphries

Rating: 2 stars Well that sucked. The Art The art was good…sometimes. Usually, it was painfully awkward and had that certain quality so common in Western comics and graphic novels: what I call “rushed by a deft hand.” The artist was good, undeniably so, but they were also very clearly rushed, or just didn’t care […]

(REVIEW) Nancy Drew: The Palace of Wisdom ~ Kelly Thompson (Nancy Drew #1)

Rating: 5 stars Time to be honest: this was the very first Nancy Drew anything I’ve ever read. Same for the Hardy Boys. I even had some of their books on my shelf growing up. I just didn’t really care enough or thought they would be boring since they weren’t about fairies or sharks (I […]

(ARC REVIEW) Minus ~ Lisa Naffziger

Rating: 3 stars I received this eARC from Iron Circle Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. Honestly, this wasn’t as bad as the average review makes it seem. It’s not very good, but that mostly comes down to awkward dialogue, […]

(REVIEW) When I Arrived at the Castle ~ Emily Carroll

Rating: 2/5 stars I’m really disappointed. Emily Carroll is one of my favorite comic artists and horror authors, but this was just way too confusing. I usually don’t mind twisty stuff, but I’m honestly not sure what this was even about. From start to finish, this relied solely on the self-indulgent aesthetic of ~spooky women~ […]
