My Little Zodiac Sailor Pony Card Captor Star Soldiers
Zodiac Starforce Volume 1: By the Power of Astra (Zodiac Starforce (Collected Editions) #1) - Paulina Ganucheau,Kevin Panetta

Look, I don't read reviews of things before I read the book, so I never really know what I'm getting into. But this looked cute and was sort of highly rated when it came out so I wanted to give it a shot. I like when we get strong female leads in comics.

 

But dear God, was this supposed to be a rip-off of every popular girl's program out there? Sailor Moon, My Little Pony, you name it. Was this intended to be a mocku-comic? Or did it just happen that way? Because wow.... I know Magical Girl is an entire genre, an that's fine. But these chicks literally transform just like the Pretty Guardians and have astrological symbols on their heads. And Taurus looks shockingly like Rainbow Dash from MLP, down to the color of her hair. Even has the personality. 

 

I am so disappointed in this. As an author, I know being original can be hard, but damn, this is just ridiculous. Am I missing the joke? Is this a woosh moment? Did it go over my head?

First, check out the trailer HERE and then read an excerpt of my spoiler free review below! 

 

A fairy in the Arctic, a tin solider in the future, and a mysterious clock that keeps the world balanced; what exactly is this story about? That's what I ventured to find out as I began my read of No Ordinary Star - or NOS - by M.C. Frank. 

 I was intrigued from the start. I wanted to find out more about our characters, about the year they lived in, about the mysteriously Clockmaster, and about how the world go so screwed up in the first place. I'll just say, which the answers I was provided with in this book I was not disappointed.

TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY CLICK HERE

 

Want to know who these couples are? Read some of my review of Lose Me below! 

 

 

...Ari is a stunt double in a new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, which is actually pretty dang cool. Ladies, you don't have to be the leading actress. You can kick-ass by jumping off cliffs and driving cars around sick bends. Ari is an enigma the moment you meet her repeating “today is not the day I die” over and over again. Something’s amiss, obvious by the gentle cues from the writings, but you don't know what it is.

Wes is the leading man in the movie, literally the Darcy. And he’s just as you would picture as described by Ari before she meets him. But Wes isn't just a two-dimensional characters, smiling at the camera. He has feelings and demons that will haunt him throughout the novel....

 

Click here to continue reading my review! 

 

Aaaand that's it! Good luck everyone!

Winning love by daylight.....
Zodiac Starforce Volume 1: By the Power of Astra (Zodiac Starforce (Collected Editions) #1) - Paulina Ganucheau,Kevin Panetta
Pretty good and pretty fun.

It's pretty much, what happens after you stop saving the world and then realize you have to do it again.

My only dislike was the vernacular but that probably has more to do with my age than anything else.

The art was great and if you're a fan of Sailor Moon or any other Magical Girl manga/anime, you'll dig this one too.
