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. When other girls my age were talking about fashion, make-up and crafting, I wanted to go play around with archery, sword fighting and adventuring. I’ve learned to get over my dislike of […]


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: Star Wars, Lando

Star Wars: Lando After almost a month of writing about my favorite fandom for Graphic Reviews, I realized that I haven’t actually talked about the main series yet. But instead of doing that, I’m gonna talk about another sidekick! Those who want to hear about the main series will just […]


Graphic Reviews: Star Wars, Chewbacca

Star Wars: Chewbacca When you think about your favorite stories, it’s natural to think only in terms of the heroes and the villains. After all, they’re the ones that the story focuses on. And even among heroes, we tend to focus on just a few and enjoy but largely do […]


Graphic Reviews: Star Wars, Shattered Empire

Star Wars: Shattered Empire In a continuation of Cait’s unofficial Star Wars month here at Graphic Reviews, this week I’ll be taking a look at the Shattered Empire series written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Marco Checchetto, Angel Unzueta and Emilio Laiso with colors by Andres Mossa. Shattered Empire […]


Graphic Reviews: Darth Vader

Darth Vader The distance between the hero and the villain is never that great. A misstep, too great of a reliance on pride and power and the so-called hero would be in the villain’s shoes. There have been a number of great villains in popular culture and literature but it’s […]
