Happy New Year everyone! First of all, I hope you all had a fantastic and safe holiday season. It’s been a difficult year for many of us, but I’m hopeful for 2017. The last half of 2016 was the most difficult for me and as a result blogging had to move to the back burner for a bit, but I’m hoping to return to somewhat regular blogging in 2017! Thank you all for sticking around, you’re the best.
With that being said, comics have been a saviour for me in the dumpster fire that has been 2016. In fact, for the first time comics make up most of what I’ve read this year (I failed miserably at my goodreads book challenge though). For that reason, it was incredibly difficult to narrow down my list of some of the best comics and graphic novels of 2016, but I’ve manged to compile 15 of the best trades, graphic novels, and single issues that I’ve read – with a few titles thrown in that were suggested by you lovely people over on Twitter. Check them out below:
Well hello again, it’s been quite awhile hasn’t it? Life got a little crazy and unfortunately that meant moving my blog to the back burner for a bit, but here I am! I’m working on quite a few posts for you all that I hope you’ll enjoy, it’s just a matter of finding time to take pictures. But don’t fret, I have a new Everyday Cosplay for you in the meantime!Read More »
One of the best things to come out of starting this blog last year was definitely finding the geek girls x bloggers group. I say this all the time, these ladies are AMAZING and there’s something really special about finding such a supportive group of like-minded bloggers. Okay, okay, you get it…I love that group, I’ll stop gushing now. Since many of the ladies in the group love comics as much as I do, I decided to host a comic swap in May and now it’s time for us all to share what we got!Read More »
If I could suddenly possess any one talent, it would definitely be the ability to draw. This has resulted in me following A LOT of artists and comic creators on Twitter (so I can stare at all their amazing work with awe and a little bit of jealousy). So naturally, I had to share with you some of these awesome artists because really…you need to be following them too.Read More »
I’m a bit of an overachiever. I go through phases, especially with writing (and reading, actually) where I’ll have no motivation to write, no ideas, nothing but then out of nowhere I’ll come up with a whole bunch of ideas all at once and I decide to start working on every single one at the same time. That’s the issue I’m dealing with right now, I have about 10 posts in the draft stages, but all of them require A LOT of work and they’ve taken a lot longer to finish than I expected (did I mention I’m a bad judge of time – how long it will take me to get somewhere, or finish something).
I recently watched Ariel Bissett’s (a fellow UofG Alumni and awesome booktuber) new video where she created a book tag – the Ruler of Books tag and thought it would be a lot of fun to do in the meantime since I hate not getting a post up. Check out the tag below:Read More »
