Gotham City Sirens, Vol.1: Union – Comic Review

4 out of 5 stars

DC Comic’s three best ladies (in my opinion) move in together and of course, crazy antics ensue.
There are clearly some things I missed jumping into this one however, it was nothing that the comic didn’t review so you knew what was going on.

Catwoman will always be my favorite.

The artwork was spot on.

Monstress, Vol. 2 – Comic Review

5 out of 5 stars

Maika Halfwolf keeps eating her arm. That’s the price of power. You sissies just cannot handle what it takes to harness the power of a god. That’s not Maika’s problem and she’s on a quest for answers. Appendages be damned.

This installment is better than the first. The first was awesome, this one is splendiferous.

Dark, intriguing fantasy with bloody amazing artwork. Monstress is easily shooting to the top of my favorite comics list.

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:

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.
