An Almost American Girl by Robin Ha

An Almost American Girl is another Read Harder find, this time for task 4, a graphic memoir that just came out in January. It's about Ha's move to the US as a teenager. Realizing the book was about someone not born in the US actually made me like the title so much better. I grew... Continue Reading →

Princeless Volume 4

Stars: 4 of 5 I love this series! Each one takes on a different "traditional" feminine thing and turns it on it's head a little. It doesn't make fun of that thing to do it either. The first book had about waiting around for a man to be saved, then the cost and benefit of... Continue Reading →

Goliath Girls

Stars: 3 of 5The basic elements of the world remind me of a combination of Pacific Rim with a feel of Lumberjanes. It's much brighter than both, which I love, and there's some competition going with another group to keep the world safe. The first issue just sets the stage with a cute intro story...

Marvel Rising

Stars: 3 of 5 This is a new series that Marvel is doing a few things with to feature some lesser known but awesome characters. Here's the wikipedia on it to get the full picture. It's a lot of fun but doesn't feature all the characters on the cover. It starts with just Squirrel Girl... Continue Reading →

Shuri and Man-eaters

Here are two exciting new series that focus on women! Both are fantastic in really different ways so far and I look forward to keeping track of them over time.  Shuri is the first, even though it came out after. Everyone loved Black Panther's little sister so much on the big screen, so Marvel rolled... Continue Reading →

Lumberjanes #33-36 or Vol 9 On a Roll

Review: I love the Lumberjanes!! This time they're competing in a roller derby against sasquatches to help the yetis. Since the beginning of the series, I have adored the way the camp is surrounded by all kinds of mythological creatures and traps. It seems anything can happen and the strangest things always do. Each of... Continue Reading →

Animosity Volume 1: The Wake

Review: I picked up Animosity for Read Harder this year. It's my comic that isn't published by Marvel, DC, or Image, task 18. I know it seems impossible to find sometimes, but there are quite a few good ones. I have them separated in the comics tab by label too, just in case anyone is... Continue Reading →

Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer

Review:  I read and reviewed the first book of this series last year, which is available here. I've also gone on, at length, about how much I adore Marissa Meyer and the world she created for this series and the Lunar Chronicles. Gone Rogue continues the story with Iko as the protagonist. As mentioned in the... Continue Reading →

Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Review:   After reading Relish, I just want to sit with Knisley and gush about all our favorite foods. I don't have quite the educated palate, but it's one of my favorite topics. Knisley includes a recipe at the end of every chapter of a food she talks about throughout the chapter too and I am... Continue Reading →

Ms. Marvel Volumes 7 & 8

Review: This series just continues to get better. If you're new to it, here is a link to other reviews. Volume 7 (#13-18) The main story is title Damage per Second but the volume also includes two other stories, one at the end and one at the beginning. The first issues is Election Day because...
