(A long-due review, considering I got an ebook copy through NetGalley over one year ago, but got sidetracked and forgot about reading it before it was archived there. Well, I can still give my opinion, though.)This comic-book/graphic novel is about retellings with a sci-fi/futuristic twist—fairy tal...

Pretty hit or miss. There are some great issues, and some lackluster issues. All in all it's a pretty good compilation, and I'd recommend to anyone who was a fan of Fables and/or similar works.

Cable and Deadpool is, on the surface, an almost entirely nonsensical idea for a teamup book. Luckily, Nicieza seems to have understood that. Most of this large (18 issues) collection is dedicated to sorting out why they're Cable and Deadpool are together in the first place. There are issues, of cou...

What a handy little book. I'm very fond of mnemonics of all kinds and for an elementary school student in particular, I would think this would be most useful. Lots of spelling and grammar and math memory tips. Good thing for most teachers, too, and useful to have in classrooms.
