Boxed Culture: Cursed by a Catalyst

Cursed by a Catalyst Over last weekend I bought and played Dragonfire, a co-op deck building game from Catalyst games. This game is a re-skin and update of a game they also made called Shadowrun: Crossfire. Today I wanna talk about my experience with the previous game in the series and how […]


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 […]


Graphic Reviews: I Kill Giants

I Kill Giants I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a heathen when it comes to stories that I enjoy. I love stories with action and adventure and am totally fine with mindless brain candy. If I enjoy any ambiguity, it’s largely in the ways that people respond to situations, […]


Con Talk: Denver Comic Con 2017 Day 3 – Finally Some Philosophy!

Denver Comic Con 2017 Day 2 Finally Some Philosophy! Any panel that starts with singing is off to a great start.  On my conclusive article (at least for this weekend!  I may end up doing some follow ups later.  No promises!), I discuss the panel entitled “Is Science Fiction and […]


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: Mirror: The Mountain

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: Monstress

Monstress While I’ve never done much writing myself, the techniques that go into the craft have always fascinated me. In the realm of speculative fiction, two things can make or break a story: worldbuilding and pacing. While there are plenty of other important elements, these are the two that I […]


Graphic Reviews: Mara

Mara For as long as I’ve been reading, I’ve always felt myself drawn to speculative fiction. While I don’t necessarily dislike general fiction, there’s just so much possibility inherent in science fiction and fantasy. There are so many themes that can be explored in the sneakiest of ways. Sure, you […]


Graphic Reviews: Banned Books

Banned Books Since last week was technically Banned Books week, I’m a bit belated in celebrating but I wanted to take some time in Graphic Reviews to talk about some fantastic graphic novels that have been banned for one reason or another. All stupid, as cases of censorship generally are. […]


Graphic Reviews: The Sandman

Awhile back, almost a year ago in fact, I talked about a little book called The Sandman: Overture here on Graphic Reviews. Turns out, I wasn’t the only one who immensely enjoyed it! This year, Overture won the Hugo award for Best Graphic Story. For those unfamiliar with the Hugo […]
