Archive for July, 2017
July hasn’t been that great of a month. At work, you can feel it in the air that people just want to quit. (Which I’m sad about but they gotta do what makes them happy.) In my personal life, I’m super stressed about by my little sister (she’s a big spender), goddamn pests that strikes fear in my heart, and my five year old iPod touch broke. :((
And although it’s been kind of awful, not awful things include EVERYTHING COMIC RELATED!!
I love comics and graphic novels, so what do I do with that love? Well, I turn it into a new feature!
From Panel to Panel is a new feature where I talk about the awesome (and perhaps not-so awesome) comic books and graphic novels I’ve read. Basically, this will be me pushing them onto your laps. You’re welcome.
July, oh July, you have so many comics releasing, and I want it all. Badass Hulk. Fashionable aliens trying to be human. BTS for stage crew boys. Gotham Academy second semester. This month, you need to put these on your TBR list.
Get your shopping carts loaded with all these comics!

Why I’m excited: OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS, MONSTRESS VOLUME 2 IS THE BEST EVER. You get Maika, loyal Kippa, Master Ren, more cats and other creatures. I have read it like multiple times, and I’m just so struck by the writing and the art. All the characters leave a heavy impression in my heart.

Gothic as fuck.
By Chance or Providence will have you utterly spellbound with its three stories that speak of “ancient curses and terrible truths” that will have you on bated breaths.
I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?
Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe), and discuss cover changes.
Cover Change: Tell Me Something Real by Calla Devlin
What a terrible mistake. Who approved the paperback of Tell Me Something Real? Because they need to get their eyes checked if they think it’s a great cover design. When you compare it to the beauty of the hardcover, I am at a loss of words.
I love the hardcover because the illustrations are gorgeous. The coloring of it is what makes it amazing. I like that the colors look semi-fade or rubbed off. I really like the title font because it meshes with the overall cover. However, the paperback, what even. The placement of the title is a mess. The positioning of the author’s name is awful too. The flowers are fake as hell. Just why.
Final Verdict: What cover do I like better? Hardcover.
Which cover design do you prefer? Would you buy the the hardcover or paperback cover?
First sentence: “She flung the door open to clamorous nonreaction, silhouetted down to a bulky jacket and a baseball cap, the blue wind blowing away the title card.”
