Easter Sunday in the Stacks


Still shaking off our convention colds and dealing with other issues, so it’s capsule reviews this week. These are some books of note that have crossed my path in the last month or so. Some comics, some merely comics-adjacent…. and one that I’m certain found its way to me by mistake but that I liked enough to recommend here. Continue Reading »

Another Weekend in the Stacks

My town is going nuts this weekend. Apparently there’s some sort of impending sporting event that has sent Seattle residents into a spiral of crazy. Seriously, it’s a lot like that old episode of Star Trek where the clock strikes six and everyone runs screaming into the streets, “FESTIVAL! FESTIVAL! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” Continue Reading »

Weekend with the Review Pile (Videogames Edition)

Saturday In The Stacks, DC Edition

I am rude about a lot of the new books DC’s been putting out lately. I’ll own it. But it doesn’t mean I don’t want to like them. I bought two new trade collections from DC this week, in fact, and one of them I liked a lot. The other one struck me as one-stop shopping for everything I really don’t care for about the New 52.

Another Day In The Stacks- Retro Edition

I realize everything is about Wolverine and the Marvel movies this weekend, but I’ve missed all of that. I’ve been buried in a project that requires a lot of research into the 1930s and 40s… and as a side effect of that, lately I’ve been reading a lot of stuff set in the Golden Age. Pulps, comics, novels. Continue Reading »

Friday in the Stacks– Guest Reviews Edition

Super busy this week, since we’re trying to deal with the end of the school year AND get books ready to roll out at the upcoming Olympia Comics Festival. So it’s capsule reviews again… but with a twist. Continue Reading »
