Review – Aquicorn Cove by Katie O'Neill

When I saw that another fantasy middle grade graphic novel was being published by the same author, I jumped on the chance to read it. Aquicorn Cove by Katie O’Neill is a beautiful graphic novel that talks about family, loss, environmentalism, and is sure to warm your heart.

Lumberjanes never fails to put a smile on my face, and my local library never fails to have another volume to borrow.

And Mal and Molly go on a super cute picnic date.

My husband and I both read Zombie Tramp, a graphic novel by Dan Mendoza. So it was only natural that we pick up Dollface Vol 1 by Dan Mendoza and Bryan Seaton.

Review – Kill the Minotaur by Chris Pasetto & Christian Cantamessa

Mythology is something I have long been fascinated by, an interest that formed when I was a child and stuck. While I sit on the fence most of the time with retellings of popular fairy tales or legends, I decided to give this one a try. Kill the Minotaur is written by Chris Pasetto and Christain Cantamessa with art by Lukas Ketner and Jean-Francois Beaulieu, and is a unique retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.

Review – Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

I had wanted to read Nimona for quite some time. It was a graphic novel I’d heard a huge amount of praise for, but one that I’d simply never picked up. When I came across a copy in the library, I checked it out immediately and read it the very same day. And man, I was not disappointed. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson is an absolutely wonderful story about a villain, his side kick, friendship, and how far someone is willing to go for love.

Review – Jim Butcher's Dresden Files Welcome to the Jungle

I’ve been a fan of the Dresden Files since the series early days. I have all the novels lovingly sitting right next to my Harry Potter collection. (Look, having all the fantasy books with protagonists named Harry together just makes sense to me). What I don’t have are any of the assorted graphic novels. Recently, I picked up a copy of The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle by Jim Butcher and Ardian Syaf.

Review – The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui

Memoirs are not a genre I often read, even when they do happen to fall into the graphic novel genre as well. Honestly, this may have been the first memoir – not a story based off of someone’s life, or a biography – I’ve read that wasn’t assigned reading. But graphic novels! Those I most definitely read, and it was only a matter of time before I picked up this beautiful graphic novel that has been nominated for multiple awards. The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. It is a story of family, war, refugee life, and starting over again, no matter how many times it takes.
