REVIEW: Awakening #1 (Archaia)

Awakening, like all zombie stories, starts the same way. Someone notices that something isn’t right and  they either ignore it or try to do something about it. They tell someone who’s skeptical and then, suddenly, it’s undeniable. However, in Awakening there’s no suddenly. The build is slow and magnified by the artwork. It’s hard to […]

Well this didn’t look like any Oz I’d ever seen and this Dorothy was no dainty farm girl desperate to go home an iron the wrinkles from her dress. No, the Dorothy in The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West is a hardened, take charge, no nonsense kind of cowgirl who still just wants to get to Oz.

In summary, you should read The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox

Did the title spoil it? I like to let the headline tell the story while everything else is supporting details. Speaking of details and headlines telling stories –spoiler alert—you might already know how the The Accidental Demon Slayer1 ends… Fortunately, the ending isn’t why I’d recommend The Accidental Demon Slayer. Angie Fox managed to write […]
