I'm a huge fan of Marjorie M. Liu's novels, so I was excited to see how her writing would translate into comics. While I generally enjoyed Black Widow: The Name of the Rose, I was disappointed with the direction of the plot and kind of on the fence a...more

Samantha and 7 other people liked Sesana's review of X-Men: No More Humans:
X-Men by Mike Carey
" I definitely liked this book. It tells a fairly interesting story, one that couldn't be told in the normal X-books (too many comics to coordinate). The premise is interesting, and it allows the X-Men to react to a situation they would never otherw... " Read more of this review »

Shield of Winter (Psy-Changeling, #13)

The issue I had with Shield of Winter is essentially the same one I had with Kiss of Snow but to a greater extent. They both have pretty ambitious and interesting main plots but they suffer from the inclusion of too many extraneous details that bog t...more
Amazing X-Men, Volume 1 by Jason Aaron
" I have to be a little hypocritical here. I complain about comics bringing characters back from the dead so often that death becomes a revolving door, and totally loses its impact. And I complain about comics cynically killing off characters for th... " Read more of this review »
Samantha is on page 351 of 431 of Shield of Winter: I think Singh tried to cram too much into this one. It probably should've been made into two separate stories so that more time could be dedicated to building suspense and making us care about Ivy and Vasic.

I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of Batman. I think I'm generally in the minority when I say that I prefer the campier versions over the serious ones. But I decided to give Grant Morrison's run of Batman Incorporated a try since I enjoyed his time...more

“There is no past or future. Using tenses to divide time is like making chalk marks on water.”
Janet Frame

Chelsea Handler
“It's been my experience that people who make proclamations about themselves are usually the opposite of what they claim to be.”
Chelsea Handler, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

Roald Dahl
“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”
Roald Dahl, Matilda

Katherine Howe
“But remember. Just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it isn't real.”
Katherine Howe, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
