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 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.
For those confused by the name in the author field here, allow me to introduce myself.
I’m Marty Day, and besides being a giant nerd, I am one of the co-hosts for the super awesome, super rad traveling live art competition, Super Art Fight.

If there is one word to summarize this story so far, it is ‘epic’. Of all the comics I am currently reading, this one is my favorite, and has been since I picked it up in March 2013. I stumbled across this at my LCS and from the moment I finished the first issue, all I wanted was more.
Fangirls, I’m going to be honest with you. There is a lot going on in Shutter, and even though there are things I really don’t understand (walking, talking, advice offering cat clock?), I love it. Set in a future with animal-like creatures who interact with humans daily, about a woman who thinks she knows her family far better than she does, Shutter is bizarre and beautiful. It’s a combination of a couple things, all done wonderfully.
Every time I finish an issue I think to myself, well the shit can’t get any deeper than that, and you know what Fangirls? Every time I’m wrong.
