I was going to wait until October, but since the news broke last week that it’s getting a TV option and I LOVE this series, I decided what the hey. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is another offering from Archie Horror, who brought us the magnificent Afterlife with Archie. A few things to keep in … More SJ Reads: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Got some news in these here parts! I’ve updated the who I am page with better contact explanations and such – eventually, I want to convert to an actual website and do something either connected or separate for my costume work, but that’s going to take time and planning. Bibliorati has a new column … More Here, There, Everywhere!
Today I want to hit another of my favorite, recent titles, this time in manga. While recovering from respiratory issues this winter and trying to deal with a case of sudden existential dread, I started reading a lot of manga again. I hadn’t really gone on a binge like that in years, and I … More SJ Reads: Natsume’s Book of Friends
So since September is my birthday month (I will take your adulations in the form of praise, reviews, and other related worship), this month’s SJ reads will cover stories that have really reached up through the nostrils and grabbed me by the soul. Today, we look at the Courtney Crumrin series by Ted Naifeh. … More SJ Reads: Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things
Geez, I’ve been all over the place in the past week. I’m back at Books by Violet talking about YA graphic novels. This time it’s a title that focuses on gaming, family obligation, and finding your life path (with some questionable supernatural help). Go here to see my thoughts on Gene Luen Yang’s Level … More Free read and new reviews up!
So, as we all know, I love vampires in general, especially when they’re done well. I’ve mentioned American Vampire on here before, but I recently reread/caught up, and this just affirms that more people need to read this series. The concept of vampires through history isn’t a new one, but it’s really interesting how … More SJ Reads: American Vampire
A short one this week, since the other link of what I’m up to isn’t live yet. There will be a new flash piece from me for the Ladies in Horror project soon – I’ll likely have that to post next week. I’m also back working with I Smell Sheep to do regular manga reviews … More Stuff I’m doing
Today’s SJ reads is another graphic novel/comic series, since that’s our theme this month. I’d heard the title The Unwritten kicked around for a while, but not really taken the chance to investigate it. Then, when I had worked my way through a two-month long manga binge and was craving something else, I checked out … More SJ Reads: The Unwritten
At this point I figure most of the people who are reading this are going to at least be aware of Sandman. If you aren’t, let me know, and I’ll cover it in a later post. I’ve found, though, that at least within my own friend/writing circle, not as many people are familiar with Lucifer. … More SJ Reads: Lucifer
So yeah, it’s been a bit and a half. I’ll get to that eventually, but really, I think at the end of the day it’s good to ask if we want to start with explanations or start the way we mean to go. Since my rambling good intentions usually end up taking time and fizzling … More SJ Reads: Finder
