Graphic Reviews: Regression

Regression As we creep closer to Halloween, more and more of us are testing our own courage in the spirit of the season. This week, a few friends asked if I wanted to go to a haunted house. Per my usual, my answer was hell no. While I love being […]


Graphic Reviews: My Favorite Thing is Monsters

My Favorite Thing is Monsters As we roll further into October, most of us are indulging in our favorite fall (and Halloween) pleasures: cooler weather, pumpkin spice (or complaining about it), falling leaves and, of course, monsters. Halloween is the time of year that monster lovers can come out of […]


Graphic Reviews: Coming Soon! (October)

Coming Soon! (October) Since we’re rolling into pumpkin spice and Halloween season with the start of October, I wanted to take this week to start one of my new planned segments for Graphic Reviews. With the changes to the structure of Graphic Reviews, the first article of each month will […]


Graphic Reviews: Games!

Games! As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of games, both the cardboard and video varieties. As with many other types of adaptations, graphic novel adaptations of games have been largely hit or miss. So I figured that this week, I’d talk about some of the game to graphic […]


Graphic Reviews: Shock Anthology

Shock Anthology One of the greatest aspects of reading graphic novels is the immense number of stories available to check out. But this is also one of the biggest challenges. How do you know what’s worth your time? In the more traditional novel format, I tend to be a fan […]


Graphic Reviews: Return to the Living and the Joy of Comicsgate

Graphic Reviews: DCC Showcase ’18 (Round Two)

DCC ’18 Showcase (Round Two)   In round 2 of the DCC Spotlight, I’ve picked another ten comics related guests at Denver Comic Con 2018. For each guest, I’ve provided a little bit of information about them as well as essential reading to prepare to see them on the panels. […]


Graphic Reviews: DCC ’18 Showcase (Round One)

DCC ’18 Showcase (Round One) As promised (though, my apologies, quite awhile later than I said), this week I’ll be talking about five of the creators who are currently signed up as guests to appear at Denver Comic Con this year. My goal is to help familiarize readers with authors […]


Graphic Reviews: Heavy Liquid

Heavy Liquid While reading graphic novels has less of a stigma than it used to, I’ve learned to use my position as a person who works in libraries to advocate for graphic novels. This means making sure that I’m always reading new ones and catching up on any classics that […]


Graphic Reviews: The Last Unicorn

The Last Unicorn Many of us have stories that we read as children which stick with us many years later. For some people, that’s the Hobbit, for others it’s Alice in Wonderland. For many though, it’s the Last Unicorn. I’m honestly not sure how a kid as in love with […]
