Book Rating:7.7 Characters: Fly, Volume 1 (Fly Book 1) First published: December 19th 2011Rating: 7.66 stars GoodReads:Fly, Volume 1 Review: One thing you can always say about Zenescope is that their comic books are never exactly what one would expect, but they’re always what you enjoy.

Author: First Book Publish:2010 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.5 Characters: We Are The Engineers (Wasted Talent, #1) (Wasted Talent Book 1) First published: July 31st 2010Rating: 8.5 stars GoodReads:We Are The Engineers (Wasted Talent, #1) Review: I’ve been meaning to read the web-comic Wasted Talent for a while. Last year, I met the author at a comic expo, and got the first collection of it but it took me until the next expo to actually read it (so slow!). I loved it though. I read it straight through, and giggled all the way. Don’t take as long as I did to read Wasted Talent. I think you’d probably like it best if you or good friends of yours went through a university engineering program.

Book Rating:7.9 Characters: Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland (Little Nemo: Return To Slumberland Book 1) First published: May 25th 2015Rating: 7.9 stars GoodReads:Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland Review: I kind of went all nostalgic with this graphic novel. I remember loving the movie Little Nemo Adventures in Slumberland when I was young and I remember spending hours playing the video game with my brother.
Author: First Book Publish:2009 Books in series: 3 Avg. Book Rating:7.8 Characters: The Adventures of Julius Chancer: Volume One (Julius Chancer Book 1) First published: August 3rd 2009Rating: 7.52 stars GoodReads:The Adventures of Julius Chancer: Volume One Review: Fun, old-fashioned action and adventure as our hero Julius Chancer (historical research assistant) and beautiful sidekick Lily (silent-film actress) embark on a quest to find the rare, possibly imaginary, rainbow orchid. Fans of Tintin will really enjoy this! There are two more volumes on order at SPL. The Adventures Of Julius Chancer: The Rainbow Orchid V.2 (Julius Chancer Book 2) First published: December 31st 2016Rating: 7.92 stars GoodReads:The Adventures Of Julius Chancer: The Rainbow Orchid V.2 Review: I was drawn (ha, no pun intended) to these books as I’m a huge Tintin fan, and this series is clearly an attempt to do something similar. Plot-wise, Garen Ewing hits all the right beats, and it’s an exciting adventure so far, but the actual telling lacks Herge’s fleetness, with some pages so bogged down in exposition that there’s hardly any room for the pictures. The Adventures Of Julius Chancer: The Rainbow Orchid V.3 (Julius Chancer Book 3) First published: April 1st 2012Rating: 8.1 stars…
Author: First Book Publish:2016 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.5 Characters: Mayhem and Magic: The Graphic Novel (The Reliquary Series) (Mayhem And Magic Book 1) First published: October 4th 2016Rating: 7.46 stars GoodReads:Mayhem and Magic: The Graphic Novel (The Reliquary Series) Review: This graphic novel left too much unsaid and forced me to fill in way too many blanks. The underlying magic was explained, but left me feeling the characters were unrealistic. I couldn’t empathize with the villainous hero.
Author: First Book Publish:2015 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Deep Dark Fears (Deep Dark Fears Collection Book 1) First published: September 28th 2015Rating: 8.1 stars GoodReads:Deep Dark Fears Review: I preordered this book ages ago and have been following the comic via tumblr for ages. I was psyched to get it in the mail and smell it and touch it and stare at it unblinkingly while weeping silently. I love this series and was so excited to read the new unreleased content and I was not disappointed! The fears are either completely hilarious or completely relatable and often both and the art is silly enough to not give you the creeps. This is an awesome debut for Krause and I’m looking forward
Author: First Book Publish:2008 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.2 Characters: The Dark Tower, Volume 2 (2 of 5): The Long Road Home (Dark Tower: The Long Road Home Book 1) First published: March 4th 2008Rating: 8.16 stars GoodReads:The Dark Tower, Volume 2 (2 of 5): The Long Road Home Review: I ended up finding this book at a library that I visited & had got it out for my brother since he being our mums son, would like Stephen King & it being a comic form of it, just worked. Being him, he never finished it, but I did. I’ll tell the truth & say I’m not my mums daughter & I have never read a single Stephen King book through. However, this book I believe is based off of Dark Tower that is written by Stephen King, so I guess I still haven’t read an actual Stephen King boo
Author: First Book Publish:2012 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8 Characters: Dororo (Dororo (3 Volumes) Book 1) First published: February 6th 2012Rating: 8.04 stars GoodReads:Dororo Review: Interesting contrast from his more Disney-esque “Princess Knight,” since this was filled with violent demon-slaying, even though he retains his cute faces on the main protagonists. I liked the creative crazy demon imagery, the scenic landscapes, panel composition & the unusual premise. I think the ending was a bit lacking, because it wrapped up too abruptly, and I felt like there was some unresolved information about the characters, especially Dororo & Hyakkimaru.
Author: First Book Publish:2010 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:8.8 Characters: Peanuts (Peanuts Friends Forever Special Book 1) First published: June 29th 2010Rating: 8.8 stars GoodReads:Peanuts Review: Non mi sembra che si possa dire molto sui Peanuts, oltre che sono la storia del fumetto. Charles Monroe Schulz, padre di queste strisce ha creato una vera perla rara, che ancor oggi a decenni dalla nascita sono letti, comperati, discussi.
Author: First Book Publish:2010 Books in series: 1 Avg. Book Rating:7.2 Characters: Tumor (Tumor Book 1) First published: June 21st 2010Rating: 7.2 stars GoodReads:Tumor Review: When I first picked this up at the library I thought it was going to be some kind of dark mashup about a guy’s cancer and how it feels like some drake murder mystery. I read a lot of graphic memoirs and novels about health issues, and more than a few about cancer. And then, to see that the art is so quick-sketched as to be almost baffling, even ugly. And I was unfamiliar with the author and illustrator. I set it aside for a few days, not sure it would be worth my time.
