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: 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 […]
