I picked up the first two volumes of Moto Crush ages ago, read about half of the first one, and didn’t mark my spot. So I finally picked it back up (don’t worry, I restarted) and I’m in love. The characters, design, the fashion; it’s all incredible. So let’s get into it.
Fangirls, this is another lovely comic from the ever lovely Marty Day. At first I was a bit out off by the title; while I do enjoy some solid smut, a castle full of sex seems like a pretty big nope for me. But when I started reading and found out it was (almost) entirely a bloody as heck action comic, I got pumped, and read on.
Be aware: this is a mature comic and images that may not be for everyone follow the break. There is blood and violence, and even a bit of sex.
Fangirls, I’ve been drooling over this book since I first saw it was coming out. I decided that it was a comic worth waiting to get physically, so I just got the first two issues this weekend. And of course, when I got them, I immediately plopped down to read them. Written by Bryan Lee O’Malley and illustrated by Leslie Hung, Snotgirl is a dream right off the bat.
Fangirls, I bought this first trade paperback because I had seen the cover a couple times and was in love with how angry the main character looked, atop her half dead mushroom. I am so glad that I did. This is the perfect balance of un-fluffing-believeable cuteness and pure hell.
Fangirls, do you know the story of Pandora and her box? It’s a piece of Greek mythology, where Pandora receives a box, and once it’s opened, it releases all the evils of the world. This is a comic kind of about that same thing.
I Kill Giants, is a comic I’ve been wanting to read for a long time. I was intrigued by the cover image of the main character giving a death stare while wearing a pair of bunny ears. I knew it was going to be a heartbreaker of a story, but I did not expect to get emotionally wrecked by it like I did.
I didn’t think this day would ever come, Fangirls. The last time we talked about Rocket Girl was last May, and I’ve been counting down the days until it’s return. A short hiatus turned into a real long one, and my meaning in life began to be in question. However, I now stand here, within your computer, to happily recap the official return of the most beloved Rocket Girl. It’s okay, I’m tearing up a bit too.
