The Autumnlands Tooth and Claw Volume 1
The Autumnlands Volume 1: Tooth and Claw - Benjamin Dewey,Jordie Bellaire,Kurt Busiek

5 Stars, buy it.

I've read up to issue 6 previously but need a refresher before going back to where I left off.  I still love the story and characters (except for the bad guys of course) and I still love the art.  I remember this from when I initially read the first 6 issues that I don’t like the long paragraphs that they stick on with the book covers. I’m not really sure what the book covers are supposed to be, maybe magical texts of theirs? The Autumnlands is highly original and should be read by anyone who likes comics. In anycase, for anyone who loves animals, in particular talking animals, I highly recommend this series.


My general Notes: The first issue you meet Dusty, Gharta and Sandhorst. Gharta tries a spell which is forbidden and she destroys the city but produces a champion. In issue two, the survivors are attacked by a bison herd. At that moment he champion is freed and to everyone's horror he's not an animal.in issue 3 we meet Goodfoot and Affa. Goodfoot shows her true colors and so does councilor Sandhorst. Issue four- Dusty, who is also the narrator goes out scouting with the champion while Goodfoot and Councilor Sandorst are up to no good.  In Issue 5 Dusty and some others go on a secret mission for the Champion. Anxiety skyrockets for me when Councillor Sandhorsts arrests Gharta and Affa. Affa and Gartha seem to have a relationship of some sort going on. The plots continue to thicken. In Issue 6:  The parley happens and Gharta is finally freed.  However we loose someone and I won’t spoil it for you.  The asshole Councillor Sandhorst comes out looking the hero.

List of characters for my reference.


Bhord- Pug dog who is grey


Councillor Sandorst- is the owl

Dunstan/Dusty- White dog/terrier

Gharta- is the warthog

Goodfoot- fox/coyote

Gutruk- walrus I think

Leahroyd- the champion (and only human)

Affa- Giraffe

Oddly Normal #10

4.5 Stars, Buy it

Self Purchase, Comixology


Finally getting back to reviewing some comics on my lunch break.  We were slammed at work for a few weeks so I didn’t have much time. I’m finally recovered.  


Love the school bug. I adore the little critter that follows Oddly around (See issue 9).  I still love the art work and color. I like how they talk about comic books.   Basically in this issue Oddly goes to school and attends her first sporting event. Over all, sweet and fun. But in the back of the issue is bad news. This is the last individual issue of Oddly Normal. It apparently does better in book format. Good news is, the individual chapters should still be coming out digitally, which is how I read them. So, I’m keeping my fingers crossed I’ll still be able to get this through Comixology.

Description (Comixology): Oddly encounters real, live superheroes.

Jem & the Holograms #7

4 Stars, Buy it


Self Purchase, Comixology


You can definitely tell the artist has changed. It’s not so bad, just a little different.  The people look slightly different. Jerrica is overwhelmed with work. Kimber is upset about Stormer. The misfits get a new manager. Rio and Jerrica get into a bit of a fight.   There are some other developments but no need to ruin any surprises.  It’s a good issue but not super fantastic. Still worth buying though.

Rat Queens #12
RAT QUEENS #12 (MR) - Cool Image

3.5 Stars, buy it


Self Purchase, Comixology


This definitely wasn’t my favorite Rat Queens issue.  We do find out that most of the girls have a secret they are hiding from the others.   A mysterious person/creature is after Hannah. The girls have to flee and are collapsing in the snow and there the issue ends. This definitely was not a fantastic issue. There was one or two funny moments, but for the most part this was pretty unexciting to me.  However, because I love this comic so much, I’m still going to recommend buying the issue. I’m just hoping the next issue is a bit better.


Description (Comixology): Along the deadly mountain trail leading to Mage University, Hannah stumbles across an old friend from an old life. The mysterious figure knows a secret past that Hannah wants no one else to ever know about.

Jem & the Holograms #6
Jem and the Holograms (2015-) #6 - Sophie Campbell,Kelly Thompson

3.5 Stars, Buy it

Self Purchase, Comixology

Jem and the holograms are disqualified from the competition due to the food fight. The misfits are not which seems like total bs. The misfits are furious with Clash for possibly almost killing Jem. Kimber is told in no uncertain terms could should date a member of Jem and the holograms. Rio is giving Jerrica a hard time about Jem not being around. Kimber is being questioned by the holograms about her secretly dating Stormer. While the Misfits are performing Jem ends up performing though it’s a little unclear how. And that is how the issue ends.


The art continues to be fantastic and unfortunately Sophie Campbell is leaving for 4 months or so. Hopefully that doesn’t mean the art is going to suck after this.  This issue was ok, but it was rather unclear how Jem and the Holograms managed to just magically upstage the Misfits during their performance. Overall not a bad issue but not that satisfying either.  I gave this 3.5 stars and say buy it because for the most part the series is definitely worth reading.
