Bryan Lee O’Malley Launches Ongoing Series

With no timeframe announced, Image Comics plans to publish a new ongoing series written by Bryan Lee O’Malley (Scott Pilgrim, Seconds) called Snotgirl. (Well, that’s certainly distinctive.) The creative team consists of artist Leslie Hung, colorist Mickey Quinn, and letterer/designer Maré Odomo, and the premise is “a dark comedy set in the world of fashion bloggers.” Here’s the description: Lottie is a huge success — she’s blog famous! Her online persona is flawless and fun, but her real life is […]

iZombie on DVD This Fall

The release date for iZombie on DVD has been announced as September 29. This is a week before the show returns for its second season on October 6. The DVD set also includes deleted scenes and a recording of a 2014 Comic-Con panel. I’m excited, since iZombie wound up being my favorite new show and my favorite comic book show (beating The Flash just slightly). Although pretty different from the original comic created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, the […]

The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Volume 14

I’m so glad to get another volume of The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service! (The previous book, volume 13, last appeared at the end of 2012.) Although it’s horror, it’s one of my favorite manga series, with each volume featuring creative deaths and victim quests that say something about the modern human condition. And The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Volume 14 was well worth the wait, with two unique takes on the corpse-assisting team. The first story incorporates a hypocritical, corrupt […]

I remember reading my first one, The Cartoon Guide to (Non)Communication, back in the early 90s, and here, over 20 years later, I’m still learning things from him. The Cartoon Guide to Algebra covers a topic I should know, given that I passed high school math, so it was a pleasant surprise to discover how much was new to me. (Starting with an overview of […]

War of Streets and Houses

Sophie Yanow’s War of Streets and Houses is a difficult graphic novel to approach, but a rewarding one. I picked it up because it was described to me as about urban planning, as well as student rebellion during strikes in Montreal in 2012, and my brother is a civil engineer, so I thought he might find it interesting. The concepts rely on the reader to bring herself to the work, as do the images. The art is sketchy and minimalist, […]
