Friday Review: Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 1

I've been meaning to start this series for some time now, so it's about time I got here. The first volume is an in depth look at the hip hop scene from the mid 70s to 1981, the founding years of hip hop. This is something that I know next to nothing about. So, not… Continue reading Friday Review: Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 1

Friday Book Review: Daytripper

Is this, you ask yourself, another book I've never read, but definitely should? Why, yes, yes it is. Daytripper is another quality title delivered by Vertigo Comics, written by Fabio Moon and drawn by Gabriel Ba. I think it's important to note that the authors are real life twins. It seems to me this helps their work… Continue reading Friday Book Review: Daytripper

Friday Review: Mooncop

You might be asking, "what is Mooncop about." And then I look at you and say, "It's about a cop. On the moon." A premise so simple maybe you could have come up with it yourself. But you didn't! Tom Gauld did. OK, maybe you did have this idea, but you didn't right this book. Tom Gauld… Continue reading Friday Review: Mooncop

Friday Review: Trillium

There are a couple of truths that I hold to be self evident: wrasslin' is fun, Faygo redpop is delish, and Jeff Lemire is good. Really good. While he does do writing and drawing separately for some stories, I enjoy his work in which he does both the best. This includes Essex County, Underwater Welder,… Continue reading Friday Review: Trillium

Friday Review: Lucky in Love

Ah look, I'm reviewing another book you probably never heard of. Don't you try to change me. Here's the deal, I'd never heard of this book until last week, but a friend of mine showed it to me, and flipping through, I thought "this is the kind of book to review on Friday!" Actually, my friend… Continue reading Friday Review: Lucky in Love

Friday Review: Lowriders in Space

I'm kind of double dipping here, as this is the book that I'm using for my Graphic Novel Book club at work. But, I really like this book, so I wanted to pass it along. Let me start by mentioning that, yes, this is an all ages read. Some people may consider it a comic… Continue reading Friday Review: Lowriders in Space

Friday Review: Macanudo

You'll be forgiven if you've never heard of this comic. Macanudo is actually a daily comic strip from Argentina by Liniers (I know I must seem like the biggest hipster right now) that I just happened to stumble upon while working the other day. So, technically, this is the second volume of collected strips. However,… Continue reading Friday Review: Macanudo

Friday Review: Andre the Giant Closer to Heaven

I love professional wrestling, don't try to change me. I have fond memories of watching wrestling, going back to when I was a kid, some of my first memories in fact. And of course, watching those old VHS tapes, one of the men that sticks out the most is Andre the Giant, the Eight Wonder… Continue reading Friday Review: Andre the Giant Closer to Heaven

Friday Review-Gale

Hey, let's dive into some webcomics! Gale is an indie webcomic made by fellow creators that I met through social media/networking. It is written by Seth Greenwood and drawn by Angela Zhang, who've been working tirelessly to bring this comic to readers, so let's jump in! Gale is a noir. You know, black and white,… Continue reading Friday Review-Gale
