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.

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

Graphic Reviews: Joe the Barbarian

Joe the Barbarian Reading is one of those activities that people enjoy for all kinds of reasons. For some people, it’s about educating themselves. For others, it’s just a way to relax. For me, and I’m sure for a lot of other people, it’s a way to escape. My life […]

Graphic Reviews: Nimona

Nimona Given that I discussed one of the greatest anti-heroes ever written last week, this week seemed a good time to discuss that line between anti-hero and sympathetic villain. One of the aspects of anti-heroes that makes them interesting is that on a bad day, they’re really not that much […]


Graphic Reviews: Rat Queens

I lay claim to the geek label on a fairly regular basis so it’s probably not much of a surprise that some of my fondest memories of being a teenager are of the tabletop role playing games we used to play. I remember having marathon sessions of Dungeons and Dragons where […]
