Sugar: Volume 1
Sugar #1 - Matt Hawkins,Jenni Cheung,Yishan Li

I just didn't connect to this title the way I did to Sunstone or Swing - the storyline and characters lacked emotional punch for me. I think the real issue was that I didn't particularly like most of the characters. Several of the side characters are terrible people, and the main characters both felt very stock. Aptly named, this one can be a bit on the sweet and saccharine side. If you like the movie Pretty Woman this might be a big win for you. I will say that in the end I finally started to connect to Julia, so it must have been doing something right. All in all it was a mixed bag for me.

Importance of Graphic Design in the Web Designing Process

Website development is no easy undertaking. With so many details that go into the process, business and website owners are often faced with all kinds of pitfalls threatening to derail their progress. Perhaps one of the most important things that any business owner should remember whenever embarking on the web design process is that the website they are about to produce will play an integral role in promoting and establishing the company’s brand and reputation. This is especially true in this day and an age of digital revolution when clients tend to seek information online. A company’s website should, therefore, present a nice first impression of your brand to prospective clients. This is where graphic design plays a critical role in the web development process.

 

Good web design goes well beyond coding. After all, it isn’t a series of letter and number sequences that people see when they visit a website—they see text, images, buttons, and copies, which tell them exactly what the company is all about. This is exactly why graphic design plays a fundamental part in web design. It injects creativity into the web development process and at the same time supports your business’ branding strategy. Graphic design in the context of web development covers everything from a website’s background images to its banners, controls, buttons, colour scheming, graphical presentations, text style, and even the way that different pages flow.

 

Good graphic design can bring a great boost in your website’s visitor ship as well as its traffic retention. Being able to capture your audience’s attention is critical to increasing the chances of them converting or responding to your call to action. By enhancing your website’s visual appeal, you also improve people’s perception about your business’ professionalism, your brand value, as well as your authority in a particular field or niche. A well-designed website also enhances usability, enabling visitors to properly navigate between your pages and through your content. An  effective graphic design also makes your content more appealing and worth reading, while eliminating the usual complexities of web design that tend to confuse the focus of a website.

The Black Bull of Norroway
The Black Bull of Norroway - Kit Seaton,Cat Seaton

Absolutely gorgeous art, and an intriguing story filled with classic fairytale charm and a dash of snark. My only real complaints are that the transitions were occasionally choppy to the point of being confusing, and it skews a little young for my tastes. Overall I really enjoyed it though, and heartily recommend it for people looking for good YA graphic novels, especially with strong lady leads. I look forward to reading more.

Halloween Bingo 2018 - Cryptozoologist
Oblivion Song - Robert Kirkman,Lorenzo De Felici

'Oblivion Song, Chapter 1' by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici

 

I don't know why I chose the shortest possible book for my Bingo pre-read, but there you go.

 

'Oblivion Song' is a new comic series by Robert Kirkman ('Walking Dead') that puts us in Philadelphia ten years after an unexplained phenomena wiped out a huge portion of the city, replacing it with horrific monsters and alien vegetation. 300,000 people vanished with the land. The monsters were defeated and the plants died, leaving a barren wasteland that the government built a wall around as a precaution.

 

It was soon discovered that the 300,000 were not dead, they were somewhere else. A scientist, driven by the loss of his brother, figured out the frequency to go to that other place and endeavored to bring back as many people as he could find. The government supported him and his team, but after many years, have shut down the program. Nathan Cole refuses to give up on his brother, making solo expeditions to Oblivion, avoiding the deadly creatures and rescuing those he finds.

 

The art is vivid, and the story hooked me right in. This is a promising start to a great series.

 

Oblivion Song

 

Next: ?

 

 

While 'Oblivion Song' hasn't gotten into the biology of the creatures of the zone, Nathan Cole expresses compassion for them, even objecting to their being killed out of hand. The alien landscape and its native inhabitants is an essential part of the series.
