SAGA – Comic Review

saga_vol1-1 saga_vol2-1

 

Cupcakes’ first attempt at an actual comic review:

5 out of 5 stars

Two star-crossed lovers abandon the war between their worlds to raise their newborn daughter while being dogged by bounty hunters left and right.

I mean, that one sentence literally explains the first two volumes in the series and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH.

Each time I finish a volume, I fight the demanding urge to run to the local comic book store and pick up the next one. Why do I resist? Trying to save money is stupid. ._.

BUT, it also means one day I’ll get to go on an epic book/comic buying spree and THAT will be an epic adventure.

Not quite as epic as out-running bounty hunters across the galaxy though. For that, you have to pick up SAGA.

 

Comics – A Review

Well look, I’m not very good a reviewing comic books. I like them. I indulge in them sporadically. I have no idea how to write a review about them. So here are a couple that I’ve recently enjoyed to a great extent (I rated both 5 stars) and that you should check out if comic books are your thing:

What comic books do YOU enjoy?

Comic Book Rising

Well now that I am properly stuffed with homemade blueberry pancakes, I can think again. I become a monster when not fed. For years my best friend has compared me to the Hulk when I’m hungry. Which leads me to the point of this post.

Comic books.

I always get into them in phases, meaning I go an undetermined amount of time obsessed with them and then they drop off my radar again. Because I am currently reading Fight Club 2 and a Goodreads friend invited me to their comic group, I feel the dark abyss rising up to greet me once again.

(I really think this was the only acceptable way to do a Fight Club continuation.)

Holy Crap Batman!

If you haven’t heard about the shootings at a Colorado screening of The Dark Knight Rises you probably live under a rock. But just in case you’re not from the States you can get all caught up right here.

Now obviously none of this was under control of Mr. Bruce Wayne himself but you might be surprised how many double takes you get now while wearing a Batman shirt running your errands.

I didn’t even think twice before I put on the shirt. Regardless I received an uncountable amount of double takes between all the stores I stopped at in one day. It REALLY pissed me off. These people are playing right into one man not only ruining and ending lives but also attempting to ruin Batman.

Needless to say I won’t let this damper my love of the Bat, nor will I stop wearing the bat signal shirt.

Because you can’t keep the Dark Knight down!

 

P.S. Michelle Pfeiffer is the best Catwoman ever! (In my opinion.)
