Rat Queens Vol. 1 – Comic Review

5 out of 5 stars


I have the WORST best friend EVER.

She hands me comics and says things like, “I think you’ll love this.”

And then I DO.

Like I need more obsessions.

Thanks dick! ❤

(If you love epic fantasy novels, try this awesome epic fantasy comic. Blood, guts, battles and sass!)


SAGA – Comic Review

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:

Fantasy/sci-fi: Synopsis here.

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.)

I Am Cupcakes Wild Glee

I made a goal for myself this year. Meet more authors, because reading is like breathing for me and I could care less about meeting some random celebrity. Authors are my celebrities, the real heroes, humans worthy of a little bit of worship. And this author, I’ve been waiting 13 to 14 years to meet him. He scolded me for using ‘the f-bomb’ (pot calling the kettle black) and put me in a choke hold. Not to mention signed three books and took a picture with me. He was genuinely a nice guy and a lot of fun. If a human could be your spirit animal, he would be mine. He’s my spirit author. I’m making that a thing.

I mean, did your favorite author sign books barefoot and then put you in a headlock?


Not only did he sign multiple things for everyone, he wrote cute little notes in each. Now that is an awesome guy.


If you haven’t missed the Fight Club 2 book tour yet, you need to get your asses out there and show Chuck some love.
