Giant Days 2016 Holiday Special #1

What a treat! Original series artist Lissa Treiman returns to illustrate John Allison’s “what if” tale, an exploration of what would have happened if the core trio of Daisy, Esther, and Susan hadn’t become friends on the first day of college. I love that this series has done such a great job building these characters that I feel like I know them well enough to enjoy a story with alternate versions. Due to a few minutes’ difference, Esther gets swept […]

Mega Princess #1

If you thought Kate Beaton’s The Princess and the Pony was cute but too short (as just one volume of a children’s book), then Mega Princess is the perfect miniseries for you! It’ll run five issues, which means I have hope for plenty of twists and then an actual conclusion. Written by Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms) and illustrated by Brianne Drouhard, it’s the story of ten-year-old Princess Maxine. Her fairy godmother has given her all the powers of […]

Young Justice Gets Third Season Due to Fan Support

Earlier this year, there was a movement to demonstrate continued interest in Young Justice, the Cartoon Network animated series featuring adolescent DC superheroes that ran from 2010-2013.

Animation has announced that they will be producing a third season. No information on where or when the new episodes will air, but original showrunners Brandon Vietti and Greg […]

Death Among Rubies

The too-much-for-her-time Lady Frances Ffolkes is back, but I recommend you read Death Among Rubies before Death on the Sapphire because a) you can (it gives you everything you need to know about the characters) and b) I liked this one better. That’s because it takes place in one of my very favorite mystery settings: the fancy house party. Frances, her supportive maid Miss Mallow, and her two very good friends Gwen and Tommie (who love each other, but not […]

Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking

Food manga fans, if you want to know more about how to make classic-but-achievable Japanese meals, Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking is the guide for you. (I particularly recommend it to readers of What Did You Eat Yesterday?) Iron Chef Masahuru Morimoto (aided by J.J. Goode) shares basic dishes in a way that makes them seem both delicious and possible for an American home cook to prepare. The images are lovely, making me want to try making everything. […]

SLG Publishing Fades Away No Longer Accepting New Submissions

As caught by Ben Towle this past weekend, this interview with Dan Vado seems to confirm that SLG Publishing (formerly Slave Labor Graphics) is no longer releasing new work. (Towle published his first two books, Farewell, Georgia and Midnight Sun, with SLG.) Although the company is still offering restock orders in Previews under the Amaze Ink/Slave Labor Graphics heading, Vado says Beyond keeping our better sellers in print and continuing some of the things we started a few years ago, […]
