BirdCatDog - a great graphic novel for new readers! @lernerbooks @leenordling @MeriBosch #allages

BirdCatDog - a great graphic novel for new readers!

Three narratives, three separate points of view, all come together in this graphic novel by Lee Nordling and Meritxell Bosch. A bird, a cat, and a dog all start their day with different achievement – the bird, to find freedom, the cat, to explore his world, and the dog, to defend his home. Each character meets and interacts with the others throughout the course of the book – the bird chases…

Dead Letters #4 - The First Chapter Closes

Dead Letters #4 - The First Chapter Closes @boomstudios #GoBuyComics

Dead Letters #4 - The First Chapter ClosesI’ve been a big fan of Dead Letters from the very first issue. It’s fantastic storytelling, gritty art and the way the layers of the story peeled back slowly, taking you to the climax, made me fall in love at first read. The passion ebbed a bit as the story went on. Not because of a drop in quality, simply because it’s impossible to be that blown away every time. They set the bar high and it was…

IDW & Harlan Ellison Make the Trek to Vegas!

IDW & Harlan Ellison Make the Trek to Vegas! @IDWPublishing @HarlanEllison9

The Creation Conventions of the late 80’s were the cons I cut my teeth on, it was more of a sci-fi con rather than a “comic con”, they were a lot of fun and I always spent waaaay too much money. It’s nice to see comic book publishers making the trek (apology for the bad pun, ugh twice) to the entertainment conventions.

Preview/Review: Wraith — Welcome to Christmasland HC

Preview/Review: Wraith — Welcome to Christmasland HC @joe_hill @IDWPublishing #GoBuyComics

Wow, I’ve read/reviewed a lot of disturbing books over the years but I think this was one of the scariest, creepiest book I have had the goose-bumped filled pleasure of reading.

Preview/Review: Wraith -- Welcome to Christmasland HC

I never read Joe Hill’s New York Times bestselling novel NOS4A2, but I’ve been a devout fan of the Locke & Key series so when this one came out I figured I’d give it a go. Charles Paul Wilson’s artwork just sealed the…

So we were stoked to hear that a hardcover (collecting issues 1-18) is scheduled to be released this November. I know it’ll be on everyone’s Christmas lists! Here’s the press release from Image:

Rapid City: Below Zero - Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Rapid City: Below Zero - Revenge is a dish best served cold. @rapidcitycomic @joshdahl @BostonComicCon

Rapid City: Below Zero is an indie comic from writer Josh Dahl, drawn by Shawn Langley, with tattoo artist (and educator) Micah Faulkner on cover art. By the way, the phrase, “tattoo artist and educator” is so incredibly awesome and badass, I can’t even. You know we love our indies here at WhatchaReading, so I was happy to get a look at this issue. The book is available both digitally and in…

When belief in magic fizzles, The Lunch Witch needs to look for work. @papercutzgn #lunchwitch

This Papercutz graphic novel sounds like it’s going to be great – belief in magic fizzles, putting Grunhilda, a witch, out of work. What’s a witch to do? What are her career options? Ah, yes – The Lunch Lady.

Papercutz is rolling out a new line of original graphic novels next year, starting with The Lunch Witch. Just reading the little bit here from Papercutz makes me smile; this is going to be a…

C is for Cthulhu - That’s Good Enough for Me. @kickstarter @JasonCiaramella @gmurphie #cthulhu #boardbook #literacy

I have a 2 year-old, and am thoroughly enjoying all the geeky stuff available for wee ones these days. Editor Monkey Chuck sent this Kickstarter my way, and suffice to say, Wee Gozer will be learning his ABCs with H.P. Lovecraft and Cthulhu – as any good child should.
