A couple weeks ago I went to Barnes and Noble to fill up my (already huge) TBR pile, and came home with Manfried the Man. This graphic novel from Quirk Books was the first thing I read, and I fell in love with it immediately.
Blocked is a compilation of stories about online dating. I grabbed it just before Christmas at Atomic Books, and saved it for my recent trip to Florida. While it was a blast to read, it was definitely not safe for work (and therefor awkward to read while flying).
I had an incredibly busy weekend, Fangirls. I dealt with some serious personal stuff Thursday through Saturday, had an Art Fight Saturday night, and then my anniversary was Sunday. We hadn’t planned anything for the anniversary other than gifts and dinner, and I’m glad, because that meant we got to watch all of the latest Wet Hot American Summer installment.
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.
Rick & Morty is a hilarious show about a drunk old scientist, and his nervous grandson. Creators like Tom Fowler, CJ Cannon, Ryan Hill, Crank!, Pamela Ribon, and Marc Ellerby have come together to transfer this vile and hilarious adult swim cartoon into this, the third volume of a comic. Oni Press puts out this gross creation, and much like the first two volumes, I loved every minute of it.
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.
I have heard nothing but the best about Spider Gwen. It’s been out for quite some time, I know, but I wanted to check it out no matter how late I was. The book is beautiful, and the story is interesting, so let’s get into it.
