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: 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 […]


Graphic Reviews: Star Wars – Princess Leia

Star Wars – Princess Leia Life is full of strange coincidences. Last week, I planned to kick off a Star Wars run of reviews after falling in love with Rogue One, starting with the Princess Leia series by Mark Waid, but somehow missed posting it. And this week, I am […]

Graphic Reviews: Mythic

Mythic Since the very beginning of humanity, we have struggled between belief and skepticism. Do we explain thunder as the stomping around of a magical being¬†in the sky or as a natural process involving the sudden increase in pressure and temperature caused by lightning? The more sophisticated humans have become […]


Graphic Reviews: Wolf

Wolf In previous articles, I’ve talked a fair amount about genre mash-ups that take disparate elements and somehow fit them together in a seamless whole. One of the best combinations of genres has been noir and horror and there are plenty brilliant examples of that, especially with creator combinations¬†like Ed […]

Graphic Reviews: A Taste of History

A Taste of History Ever since I was small, I’ve loved stories. The source has never really mattered, I just loved hearing about lives beyond my own. Gifted storytellers, family members, books and even TV and movies have all provided me with lovely ones. I think the greatest appeal of […]
