Viable Paradise

This October, I was fortunate enough to attend Viable Paradise XVIII, an annual workshop meeting in Martha’s Vineyard for the XVIII-th time. We twenty-four happy aspiring authors, fragile and vulnerable manuscripts in hand, landed on the island to have our brains pulled out of our skulls and submerged in a

Review: The Last Werewolf

Stop what you’re doing and look up ennui in Urbandictionary. Then read this book. Humans are endlessly fascinated by new things: new books, new movies, new bands. We bend over backward to try out new restaurants; we max out our credit cards to have the latest and greatest tchotchke. So what

Review: Dr. Sleep

Stephen King’s sequel to one of his most beloved books is decent enough, although it’s tough not to see its publication as a swipe at Stanley Kubrick. Is twelve too early to read about haunted hotels, gypsy curses, and dormant aliens from outer space? I was twelve when I read

It really seems like Attack on Titan has been one of the hottest new anime properties out there as of late. I stopped counting the amount of cosplay based on it at Emerald City Comic Con after the first few dozen. Until only a couple months ago, I’ll admit that

Joe Hill is a pitiless bastard. Two weeks ago I got up early on a Saturday morning and read the last volume of Locke and Key, Alpha and Omega.  I’d been planning to write my review for last week about it, because its one of the best comic series I’ve

Loki: Agent of Asgard – Trust Me #1

I’ve been reading comics off and on since I was six years old and Superman died. The thing about being a female comic book fan is that even from an early age, you’re made very aware that superhero books are not necessarily geared towards you. There’s a common style of

3 Reasons Captain Marvel Needs a Solo Series

The following article contains some spoilers for the New 52’s Shazam, recently released as a graphic novel. DC’s Captain Marvel is my absolute favorite superhero and I want to see more of him – I want to see him have his own solo comic again, something the character hasn’t had

A1: The World’s Greatest Comics – Lots of content, not enough context

I grew up reading a ton of fiction anthology series. Everything from Sword and Sorceress to stuff like Cats, Magical Familiars! and I loved them, even when they revolved around talking cats (or maybe especially). As I got more into comic books, I started picking up some comic anthologies, such

New Comics, No Capes – Part Two

I’m here to continue a look at brand new, non-superhero comics to have recently been released. Looking over this week’s round up, I realize that every one of these books has been published by Image. This wasn’t intention on my part, but I think it demonstrates something excellent about a
