I'm all caught up with SD Archives nine right now and I'm going to move beyond that to some issues that I bought later on. Again, this is just pure soap opera as if happened real time, and I'm loving it all!
It's addictive, despite some flaws, but I'm willing to put up with them because it's so much fun!
Boom! continues to add to its arsenal of comics series that are bizarre, push genre boundaries, and are just plain fun.
'By Night' follows twentysomething former best friends Jane and Heather. Time, college and some undefined circumstances have led to their drifting apart, but they've both returned to their home town of Spectrum, SD. Not much is going on in Spectrum since the sprocket factory shut down.
On hearing the factory is going to be left unguarded, Jane convinces Heather to explore it with her, you know, before the teens find it and ruin everything, and what could have been a brief outing to rekindle a friendship becomes something much more.
This was cool. I'm waiting for the sequel. That's all.
Percy Shelley is mostly remembered as the husband of Mary Shelley. I knew he also was a poet, but much more I didn't know. This graphic novels tells his story as he is expelled from Oxford and pisses off many people in the pursuit of his dreams.
I don't know how accurate this story is, but I felt most sorry for his first wife, Harriet. Percy didn't came across as a likeable character. The art is rather cartoonish and not really my style. I'm however curious to find out more and would probably read the second part in this series.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
