The Spire – Simon Spurrier, Jeff Stokely, André May

This was a completely blind lend based on someone knowing I liked Monstress and Ms. Marvel (as well as him lending me more of both – he hasn’t even met me! People are great). I was immediately taken by the cover art, which … Continue reading

Ms. Marvel vol. 1 (No Normal) – G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona

MOAR COMICS. That is the theme of today (I have one more after this to read, and then I’m done on my reasonably sized ones until I buy WicDiv vol. 5, I think – I still have Lucifer vol. 2 to … Continue reading

Pretty Deadly Vol. 2 – Deconnick, Rios, Bellaire and Cowles

I am definitely not trying to bump my stats in my reading challenge by reading a graphic novel next, especially as I’m behind my target. That’s not a thing I would do. And I mean, I’m not really. I would … Continue reading
