I bought Glister at my favorite bookstore a couple weeks ago because I needed a switch up from the comics I was reading (no offense, Rick & Morty). I knew it would be different, it has a very different look to it than many “mainstream” comics. So I was excited for the change in my routine.
I know it’s food review time. I even made falafel that’s super tasty to share with you this weekend. But the first issue of the second ZS storyline came out yesterday, and the falafel will just have to wait. Friends, I love Zodiac Starforce. The characters got so much wonderful treatment in the first storyline, and now we have the incredible pleasure of joining them once again.
Just like everyone else who uses Netflix, I saw the advertisement of Trollhunters for the majority of December. Big and bold, they announced when Part One would be coming out (late December). I was only a little intrigued, but when it came up on my “Recommendations” area, I figured that I may as well watch it.
Fangirls, I have finally begun watching the magical girl anime, Sailor Moon! I’ve been told for ages by several people that I would really enjoy it, and now that we have hulu, I can watch it without having to pay the crazy prices for box sets (season 1 was about $75 when I checked). I’m glad that so many people have recommended it to me because its phenomenal and I love winding down while watching it.
Fangirls, my good friend Sophie has done it again! Her recommendations have always been spot on for me, and this time is no different. I got to see her while up in NY this past week, and she lent me a graphic novel titled Awkward” by Svetlana Chmakova. The title is incredibly accurate, but the book has some very touching and impressive moments.
Fangirls, I bought this in a whim a couple months ago, and didn’t actually get to sit down and read it until this morning before we left. I was intrigued by it because it’s Boom! Box and hey do amazing things, but also the colors are beyond gorgeous. I’m incredibly glad I finally got to crack it, though, because it seems like the beginning of something phenomenal.
Sam Maggs has done it again, Fangirls and Fanboys. She absolutely killed with Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Wonder Women hits an even deeper tone.
