I grabbed this graphic novel from my local library just ‘cuz the other day, and I’m so glad I did. First Second has easily become a publishing favorite; they release such incredible titles for all ages. The Time Museum is a middle grade graphic novel, clocking in at about 250 pages. But let’s get into the plot!
“There’s no turning back now. The devil has your soul.”
Friends and Fangirls I’m back at it with these Merciless books! Book III is a prequel; Origins of Evil takes place before Sofia ever moves to Friend, Mississippi. Guess who it stars?
I know that Teen Titans GO! is a pretty divisive subject, but I’m someone who loves it. I have no beef with the cartoon from when I was younger, but this dumb, fun show is directly up my alley. So when they came to the big screen this summer, you can bet your butt I got tickets!
I did not expect to enjoy this. I picked it up because I saw tons of bookstagrammers with it, and knew there was a Netflix movie coming out, and I wanted to compare the two. But about 100 pages into the book I realized that I had underestimated it, and I needed to finish it.
In my continuing quest to read as many of Neil Gaiman’s works as I can, I finally got through the beginning of The Sandman, a 75 issue comic series that began in the 80’s. It follows Dream of the Endless, a family of personified concepts. Dream, Death, Desire, Destiny, Destruction, Despair, and Delirium. Though Dream, being the Sandman, is the focus, his other siblings do come into play quite often.
“I love you Sofia. But you’re evil.”
Fangirls, we know just how quickly I devoured book I of The Merciless, and I’d like you to know that I ate through II just as quickly. Since this is a sequel, there are Book I spoilers. Also, this is violent, so don’t read it if you don’t deal well with that.
Oh my goodness, Fangirls, I just fell in love with Goldie Vance. I’ve always been partial to Boom! Box comics, but this one truly takes the cake!
