Worst best luck and a tourist
The Color of Magic - Terry Pratchett

This is my first Pratchett, and I had so much fun.

 

It was all the elements: the zanny world, all the stabs at our world's and several sub-types of fantasies usual conventions, Rincewind's quality of "Luck's *shhhhhhhh!* The Lady's plaything" and Twoflower's perfect embodiment of the "too oblivious and exited to get it" tourist. And the luggage. The luggage was awesome, and the way it kept coming back the gift that kept on giving.

 

It ends in a cliff-hanger, but I'm not too anxious over it, because I was on the ride for the humour more than closure.

 

And apparently, this is not the best to be had in the Discworld... Sold on the author.

Paper Girls Volume 1 - Cliff Chiang,Brian K. Vaughan
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I loved this graphic novel. I was hooked from the very start. The characters are awesome, the story is confusing as heck but very intriguing, and the whole idea of the thing is just amazing. It is a science-fiction adventure set in the 1980s. This is basically Stranger Things with more time travel and a diverse cast of paper girls. Another win from Brian K. Vaughan. 

One of the things I think this book did extremely well was show some of the homophobic views of the time, but also address them. Mac's character is very outspoken and says some not-so-nice things such as calling someone an "AIDS patient" or expressing disgust about a boy with a boyfriend. But each time, the other characters call her out for it ("You shouldn't call anyone the other f-word."). This was a good way of showing the views of the characters during the time period without accepting them or leaving them unaddressed. Very well-done.

The characters themselves were phenomenal. I instantly wanted to learn more about them.

Also, the artwork is very cool. It really draws you in. 

Fantastic read. I really enjoyed it. I will definitely be checking out the second book.

Literally a comic about paper girls
Paper Girls Volume 1 - Cliff Chiang,Brian K. Vaughan

And I was like I dunno?   I read it partly because the dude who wrote this also wrote Saga, so I was like, well, it has to be more interesting than it sounds to me!

 

And it was.   When they discover an iPod - or iPhone? - and then who's behind it being there, well, things get interesting.   

 

Not completely sold on following this one, but I got this in a Humble Bundle and read volume three for the Hugo awards.
