I need to start off by saying that this book wasn’t for me. I picked up the first four graphic novels and barely found any enjoyment in reading them, and that was disappointing. While this wasn’t the book for me, it may be up someone else’s alley.
I picked up this trade while at Free Comic Book Day for a couple reasons; I could use more PPG in my life, I love comics, and my favorite girl Sedusa was on the cover. So I grabbed it, got my free comics, and went on my way. But it took forever for me to finally sit down to read it. Luckily, when I did, I wasn’t disappointed.
I don’t think I will ever be able to absorb enough Steven Universe. I’ve watched the show religiously, picked up books, the album, and of course, comics. This is a collection of five comics that are kind of all over the place, but that means you can read them in any order without continuity problems.
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!
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 love Bee & Puppycat. They’re a super cute duo and I can not get enough of them. So when I was grabbing Too Many Comics at the shop the other day, of course I grabbed the third trade collection of Bee & Puppycat!
Okay Fangirls. Awhile back I watched Over the Garden Wall from Cartoon Network, and loved it. Over the Garden Wall is a short series about a boy and his brother lost in the woods; they went over a literal garden wall, and found themselves in an extremely bizarre land. It’s quite a bit more dark than what I usually look for in a TV show, but it was beautifully done, and the ending was surprising. When I was in New York, my mum insisted that we visit my old comic shop to say hi. While browsing, the trade of Over the Garden Wall caught my eye, and I had to pick it up. I’m incredibly glad that I did, because it’s beautiful and funny, just like the show.
