Justice League – Movie Review

Justice League – Movie Review 

Hoo boy. I’ve not made any secret to anyone who knows me that, Wonder Woman aside, I have not been at all impressed with DC Extended Universe. In fact, I actively consider Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad to be among some of the worst superhero movies I’ve ever […]

Urskuul’s Reading Circle: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Urskuul’s Reading Circle: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo 

Well everyone, we have somehow managed to navigate the perils of 2017 to survive all the way into October! I think we all should be congratulated on this sterling effort, since I originally figured this would be a quick money-making opportunity. Everyone would stop coming to Urskuul’s Reading Circle after the first few months and […]

Wonder Woman – Spoiler Free Movie Review

Wonder Woman – Spoiler Free Movie Review 

Alright, before I start this review, I should make a few things clear. I am not a big fan of DC’s Extended Universe thus far. Which is a polite way of saying I think Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad were all awful awful films. I could very easily write a week’s […]

Monthly Short Story Winner: Breaking The Fourth Wall

Monthly Short Story Winner: Breaking The Fourth Wall 

Most of you are familiar with the term “breaking the fourth wall”. It’s mostly done in children’s books (like Grover in Sesame Street’s The Monster at the End of this Book), comics (see above) or movies (comedy movies mainly) and means usually a character becoming aware of their fictional nature, directly addressing the reader and/or […]

Suicide Squad – Movie Review

Suicide Squad – Movie Review 

This review contains spoilers. Read with caution if you have yet to see the movie. I’m going to preface this by saying I don’t normally do movie reviews. Also I haven’t been into DC Comics since the Justice League was called the Super Friends. And then? I just watched the TV show because I couldn’t […]

Graphic Fantasy: Catching up on Comics

Graphic Fantasy: Catching up on Comics 

Step into any forum, whether on Fantasy-Faction or another site, and conversation often turns to recommendations. “I liked X, but not Y. What should I pick up next?” Unless X and Y are really off the wall, the same handful of names pop up pretty much every time. And while I do try to suggest […]

Hereville: How Mirka Caught a Fish by Barry Deutsch

Hereville: How Mirka Caught a Fish by Barry Deutsch

Mirka of Hereville has defeated a troll in a knitting contest and won her home back from a meteorite that tried to take her place in her family, but now she faces a challenge both potentially more familiar to her readers and more difficult: babysitting her bratty six-year-old half-sister Layele. Mirka, being Mirka, doesn’t take […]

Body Work – Rivers of London Graphic Novel Review

Body Work – Rivers of London Graphic Novel Review
4.5

I was raised on a diet of comic-book adaptations. Back when home video was in its infancy, they were the only way to ‘watch’ a film again, or in some cases even see it. I had a paperback version of The Empire Strikes Back from Marvel that literally dropped to bits from being read so […]

Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite by Barry Deutsch

Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite by Barry Deutsch

I’ve done a post on sequels before, and on the difficulty of making them both true to the original book while still building on the world and the characters. I think, in every review I write of a book that isn’t either standalone or the first in a series, I’ll be tempted to revisit that […]

Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword by Barry Deutsch

Library book swapping is almost a habit among my family. My mom has borrowed the copy of Girl Waits with Gun that I checked out last week, and I’ve been hovering over my sibling’s shoulder for Ms. Marvel. I did the same for Welcome to Night Vale and The Lunar Chronicles, and it’s a generally […]

Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham

Fables, Vol. 1: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham
4.5

Inspired by the post about graphic novels and fantasy from a few weeks ago, I thought it would be good to revisit the beginnings of a series I started reading a while back, one which came to an end last year. Fables, written by Bill Willingham, told the tale of our favourite fairy tale characters […]
