Graphic Reviews: Tokyo Ghost

Tokyo Ghost Science fiction has long been trying to answer the question of whether technology is likely to bring more good or more ill to humanity and society in general and in large part, cyberpunk has been a part of that conversation. Whether it’s Ghost in the Shell or Neuromancer […]


Graphic Reviews: Chrononauts

Chrononauts As a reader, it’s good to find creators (authors or illustrators) who push the boundaries of what’s considered acceptable in a genre. If you read too much of the same thing, you can get stuck in a rut and miss out on interesting ideas just because they don’t fit […]


Graphic Reviews: How to Talk to Girls at Parties

How to Talk to Girls at Parties As the classic, stereotypical shy introvert, parties are generally about as appealing to me as going to the dentist. Unless I know a significant portion of the guests well, parties just mean sitting in a corner, sipping alcohol and wishing I was less […]


Graphic Reviews: Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell While I’ve been reading comics for a while now, I’ve long struggled to get into the other side of the graphic novel world: manga (and paired with it, anime). It’s a style that I’ve not developed a taste for and frankly, an entire culture in and […]


Graphic Reviews: Sexcastle

Sexcastle As I’ve mentioned previously in my review of Tomboy, I’ve never been in the “traditional girly” camp.

Mirror: The Mountain Since I started reading graphic novels in college (more than a decade ago now), I’ve noticed a change in the perception of them and yet, they still remain one of the more undervalued genres in literature. There’s long been an assumption that graphic novels are just silly […]


Graphic Reviews: Huck

Huck One of my favorite things about being a lover and devoted reader of any genre is getting to know the styles of the various writers and learning which ones appeal to me and which ones don’t. Since I’ve only been reading graphic novels for the past decade or so, […]


Graphic Reviews: The House That Batman Built

The House That Batman Built: ComicsĀ for Lego Batman Fans Over the long weekend, I got the chance to go see Lego Batman, a spin-off of the recent Lego movie featuring one of everyone’s favorite characters. I was a little concerned that it would be too childish or just a blatant […]


Graphic Reviews: List o’ Love

List o’ Love Ah, Valentine’s Day. Some of us love it, some of us hate it and some really just couldn’t care less. As someone who’s currently in a relationship, Valentine’s Day is mostly sweet to me but it’s hard to forget how much it annoyed and frustrated me when […]


Graphic Reviews: Star Wars

Star Wars Now that I’m back from my unannounced birthday vacation (sorry about that!), it’s finally time to wrap up my now more than month long Star Wars extravaganza by finally talking about the main Star Wars series around which all of the other comics that I’ve talked about in […]
