She-Ra: The Legend of The Fire Princess Graphic Novel Review

She-Ra and The Princesses of Power was a Netflix series and a reboot of the original 80’s She-Ra Princess of Power. Although I watched a few episodes of the Netflix series (and did not grow up with the original series), I did really love the designs of the main characters in the reboot, especially the main protagonist, She-Ra.

I came into this graphic novel with a bit of knowledge from the reboot. I admittedly did see spoilers on my feed from the finale. However, I was curious about the journey in between.

Bee and Puppycat Vol. 1 Comic Review

So, what is Bee and Puppycat?

Bee and Puppycat is an online series created by Natasha Allegri. This series follows a young woman named Bee, who is unemployed. She finds a creature named Puppycat and the two take on temporary work in alternative dimensions and planets. This show has been subject to many delays–it was originally released in 2013, with its second season pushed back to 2019, then 2021, and finally, 2022. The quality of the animation, as well as the personalities of the two main characters make this series very enjoyable!

I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf by Grant Snider Review

I saw one of the comics from this comic anthology on social media. This book is a love letter to literature and writing, with small and simple, yet detailed illustrations. It was a comfortable and short read, a good coffee book to have lying around. I borrowed a digital version from my library and feel that this is the type of book that is better to have with a physical copy, to look back at your leisure… and notice new details!

Cat’s Cafe by Matt Tarpley Review

Cat’s Cafe by Matt Tarpley is an adorable comic anthology. I’ve occasionally came across a few of the comics on instagram. The premise of this anthology is simple: there are animals and creatures living in a small village who love to gather in a cat’s coffee shop. I picked up this book and fell in love with the cute art style. I thought the book would also be simple and comedic, but it had a lot more depth than I expected.

My Problem With I Follow: A Comic in So Pretty Very Rotten

SPVR-1-360x511.jpg

So Sweet Very Rotten is a book by Jane Mai and An Nguyen, and is a compilation of essays and fictional comics about alternative fashion. It’s main focus is on Lolita fashion.  I had an issue with one of the comics in there and wanted to spread awareness about it, as it was rather unpleasant surprise when I had first picked it up. But before I go into it, I want to give everyone a heads up. This comic deals with the topic of self harm. This is not a post about me trying to censor the contents in this comic, but rather, a problem I had with the way the topic of self harm was handled.
