Sailor Moon

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.

Awkward by Svetlana Chmakova

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.

Backstagers: Act One

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.

A Piggy’s Tale; Issues 1-4

Fangirls, I’ve got to be honest with you. I did not want to give this book a second glance. We came across it at Baltimore Comic Con and I was not super into the art style. But next to the table a small crowd was gathering, and the divider had been moved because there was a sweet little dog just hanging out, getting pets. So I stopped and asked if I could join in with the love for the pup, and his owner said I could, and started to tell me about the comic at the table.

Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

I think it’s pretty obvious that I really love girls reading comics. I find it so exciting when another female likes to read comics, because I love that instant camaraderie, having something that means so much to me in common with another lady. It’s phenomenal! At my neighbor’s Fourth of July party last week, one of their children pulled me inside and we had a nice conversation about comics (or Graphic Novels, which she prefers). I am not a big fan of parties, so this was a welcome distraction for all the reasons. She told me to wait a moment, and brought 3 books down; all graphic novels about Zita the Space Girl.

Zootopia

Fangirls, last week I finally saw Zootopia! My friend Chelsea and I went to get dinner and see it, because she (and I) have both wanted to so badly, but no one would go with us. So we went together! We missed the first 15 minutes (the website showed a different start time than the theatre actually had), but it was basically just the introduction to Judy Hopps.
