Reading progress update: I've read 3 out of 312 pages.
Bloodstone & the Legion of Monsters - Dan Abnett,Sonny Trinidad,John David Warner,Juan Doe,Dennis Hopeless,Michael Lopez,Andy Lanning

okay, so I've been an Elsa Bloodstone fan since her origin story in a 4-issue mini-series back in late 2001, and that was when they drew her as a Buffy clone. her breakout--and cooler look--came later, in the amazing Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. series. I also bought a Wolverine graphic novel mainly because she was on the cover. with this graphic novel, I get more Elsa--no complaints!--but I'm finally going to peruse the older material, featuring her father, Ulysses Bloodstone; his adventures date mostly back to the 1970s Marvel Monsters craze, and were in black&white Marvel magazines, not just comics. anyway, long live the Bloodstone line! (maybe they'll get a movie, one day...).

Awkward by Svetlana Chmakova
Awkward - Svetlana Chmakova

 

Cardinal rule #1 for surviving school: Don't get noticed by the mean kids.

 

Cardinal rule #2 for surviving school: Seek out groups with similar interests and join them.

 

Penelope Torres (Peppi) is thinking of these rules as she starts a new school. When a boy (Jaime) tries to help her pick up all her stuff, the mean kids start calling her Nerder Girlfriend. Embarrassed, Peppi pushes Jaime and runs away. She feels guilty and spends most of her time trying to figure out how to apologize. When a rivalry heats up between Peppi's art club and Jaime's science club, things become even more awkward.

 

This is a charming middle school story that kids will enjoy. It is age appropriate for 3rd grade and up - no violence or bad words - just a sweet story with a hopeful ending. The graphics are expressive and fun, a highly recommended graphic novel.

Saga, Volume 1 by Brian Vaughan and Fiona Staples

What can I add to what everyone else has written? Nothing. This was awesome! That is all.

 

I posted this yesterday. It posted to Facebook and Twitter, but did not post here. I tried to post it again today. Nothing. Now I'm just creating an entire new post only because I'm so excited about how good this graphic novel was. 

 

This site is getting on my nerves.
