I’ve been reading a lot. However, I’ve been mostly reading comics, manga, and the occasional Wimpy Kid book. I don’t know what it is about comics and manga that make me not want to write reviews. Actually, the thought of having to review them is a bit overwhelming. Having to review an entire series is scary! Not to mention that I’ll probably forget a lot of important details along the way! It also seems a bit pointless to review volume by volume since there’s really not much I can talk about that way. Continue reading How does one review manga and comics?
Ghostly Echoes is so far the most exciting of the Jackaby books. Side stories have been resolved, characters and their background stories have been fully developed and stakes have been raised.
Not to generalize, but the conclusions to most of the series I’ve read so far have been a tad predictable. It’s nice to find something like the Jackaby novels that keep me guessing. I don’t have an inkling as to how this series is going to end, and I love it. Continue reading [Mini Review]Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby #3) by William Ritter
“London, 1898. The Victorian Era draws to a close and the twentieth century approaches. It is a time of great change and an age of stagnation, a period of chaste order and ignoble chaos. It is an era in need of champions.
In this amazingly imaginative tale, literary figures from throughout time and various bodies of work are brought together to face any and all threats to Britain. Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde and Hawley Griffin ( the Invisible Man) form a remarkable legion of intellectual aptitude and physical prowess: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” – Goodreads Continue reading [Review] The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1 by Alan Moore
Life for the Baudelaire children just keeps getting worse. Count Olaf is still at large and after the Baudelaire inheritance, Mr. Poe is still completely incompetent, and the children are yet again placed in the care of someone they don’t even know. To make matters worse, their new guarding doesn’t treat them like children, much less family. He treats them like employees, employees that get paid in coupons and get gum for lunch.

Deadpool: World’s Greatest Vol. 1: Millionaire With A Mouth by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Mike Hawthorne , Scott Koblish , Tony Moore
I really enjoyed reading this volume but there was something about the dialogue that didn’t flow smoothly. For some reason it wasn’t as enjoyable as other Deadpool comics I’ve read. I haven’t read many, I’m fairly new to Deadpool, but “Deadpool & the Mercs for Money” and “Deadpool v Gambit” were ridiculously fun. I guess my expectations were a little high this time. Hopefully, volume 2 will be better.

Beastly Bones (Jackaby #2) by William Ritter is the continuation of what is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. Soon after their first case came to a close, Detective Jackaby and Miss Abigail Rook head off to a small town in New England to solve the case of a missing dinosaur tooth. If only it was a simple case of thievery. Bones are being stolen and then returned, there are beastly foot prints in the dirt, baby goats and sheep are getting eaten, and dinosaur bones might not be dinosaur bones at all.
