Last Man: The Stranger

Yesterday I was hunting through our collection of graphic novels to find something that I could write about for today, and coming up empty handed. When I asked the boyfriend what his suggestion was, he mentioned Last Man, a series of graphic novels published by First Second that a video game (Last Fight) based on the characters in it. We searched until we found the first book, The Stranger, and I cozied up to read it.

The Legend of Korra Book 3: Change

So I recently breezed through Book 2 of the Legend of Korra and caught up online with Book 3. Book 2 left me a little upset just because Korra can no longer commune with her past selves, even though her Avatar state seems no less powerful. I wont get into why this happened because we are focusing on Book 3 here!Read More »

Introducing: Comic Shop Girl!

Hello Fellow Fangirls!

I’m happy to have been asked to write for Fangirls Are We. For now you can call me Comic Book Shop Girl or Comic Shop Girl for short. I work at the local comic shop the girls come into each week. I read a lot of Image books and a lot of strange books as well and I recommend them to people I believe can read. So here is a bit of a background on me. I love art, music, movies, anime/manga, comics and other nerdy wonders. I’m a Whovian and proud! I have seen all the star wars movies and honestly fuck Episode I. That was weak sauce and we all know it, Jar-jar was a racist move even more racist than that awful movie that was called Avatar that wasn’t the Last Air Bender (which wasn’t that great either). Seriously it was like they wanted to confuse small children. So yes I have a strong opinion and I’m not going to change it to appease so what you see is what you get. I have a strange way of doing things. Sometimes I’ll give you a review and a sometimes a top ten list maybe even a top 20. I’d like to cover all sorts of things from issues with the comic industry, to things going on with shows and movies, also what comics I’m reading each week. I will also be writing a review on Tuesdays or better yet a preview of books to come on Wednesday that I think should be highlighted for the week. Some days may even be just a rant about the industry in general but I warn you now…it will be a rant………….and I apologize now for that. I should also explain some of the terms I may use before we go into my reviews. I also apologize for certain terms I will be using, I know some people won’t understand so I will star* certain things and have foot notes.
