Walking Dead Vol. 1 - Days Gone Bye
The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye - Tony Moore,Robert Kirkman

 

The Walking Dead will be the zombie movie that never ends.

- from the introduction by Robert Kirkman

 

I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead tv show. It's hard to put into words what this show means to me and how it has played with my emotions over the years. I can't believe I waited this long to read the graphic novel. 

 

I loved everything about this graphic novel and I can't wait to read Volume 2.

DNF-Book Not Engaging
John Henry Days - Colson Whitehead

I DNF at 21 percent. I tried to finish this book, but honestly nothing was grabbing me at all. Initially, I was intrigued about how Whitehead would weave in John Henry into the story, but instead we seem to be flip flopping between different narrative styles. I really loved "Underground Railroad" and was hoping for more of the same here, but this book really needed some magical realism or something like the former book to really make it stand out.

 

"John Henry Days" takes a look at folk hero John Henry and an African American journalist (called J) who is flying into the town that claims him to write about the John Henry Days celebration. Whitehead goes back and forth between J and just random characters in this book. I think this is his way of taking a look at race in America. I just couldn't force myself to keep reading this. 

 

I didn't care one whit about J the only character that I think that we follow through this whole book. I found the writing to be uneven. There were way too many metaphors. The chapters were really short too which doesn't allow you enough time to get settled into whatever POV you are currently in while reading.

Last Days!!!
Ms. Marvel Vol. 4: Last Days - Marvel Comics

PEOPLE!!!!!
I'm so glad I finally picked up the next volume. I seriously can't get enough of Kamala Khan, she's my absolute favorite. I love everything about her.

 

I think that these volumes are just getting better and better and I can't wait to see were things will go. I need the next volume, as soon as I will get the chance to buy it. I want it right now but well...

 

This volume had so many great moments, that made me squeal and go awww....IT WAS AMAZING!!!!

My eyes are about to glaze over. This is just really boring. I loved Underground Railroad and this is not similar to that book at all. 

 

"The List had been pushed from the earth by tectonic forces. The List possessed a specific gravity measurable by scientific instruments. The List contained weight and volume. The List was aware of those in its charge. It knew if writers moved, switched from this newspaper to that magazine, if they died or retired, and updated itself accordingly. The men and women of the List were surprised at the promptness of the List’s readjustment, but only the first time. After that first time they were surprised at nothing. Contact names were updated with military precision. The publicity firm rolls were never obsolete. If a bouncer at a club quit, or went to jail, or moved to a different club, his replacement was noted and identified to eliminate possible embarrassment. The quirks and pet names of maître d’s at the popular restaurants were indexed. A harmony was achieved. And the List rewarded the world."
