I read a LOT of graphic novels this month because it was a busy month and they had piled up on my desk and it is so much easier to read through a comic book a day than trying to get through a novel. Plus I distracted myself with Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney and have been playing that on my lunch break instead of reading.
ANYWAY – JUNE BOOKS!
Cute addition to the series. I love Phoebe’s Dad’s t-shirt collection. SO many sly references in there LOL.
Fencing matches in this make it hard to out down because you want to know the outcome as much as the students competing for a place on the team. Really love this series.
This was like a high quality teen movie. A roller coaster of emotions. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad, a bit melancholy and nostalgic. Dario turns 18 in the book and I think this would be appreciated by older teens. Definitely something that movie fans would enjoy with all the film references throughout, especially classic B-movie horror.
I knew nothing about this book when I picked it up, just that it had positive reviews and a cool title. Your sense of humor must be DARK to enjoy this, but it is worth a read. I’d love to see this made into a movie.
Sweet, funny story with a surprise sci-fi twist! I think my drama club friends would have loved this back in the day. Definitely see why the same publishers as ‘Lumberjanes’ picked this up.
Another fun volume, really loved the exploration and explanation the backstage world.
Embarrassing fact – I think I owned all of these comics in single issue format and I had not read them until now. In the collected library edition.
Fun collection of the Firefly/Serenity tie-in graphics. Most are taking place leading up to the movie, with references to the movie.
Fun read for fans.
A fun romp through the ‘verse. Holder/Lovelace really captured the voice of the world and the characters.
My only gripe was the constant references back to episodes of the show, as though the author felt the need to establish street cred, proving they were familiar with the series. It was cute at the start, but it popped up a little too often.
Still, great read for fans! Joss Whedon has a credit on the cover that makes me feel like this is now official ‘verse canon.
Beautiful and bittersweet stories about people living in a small town in Canada, though it could be any town.
