Read Harder - A graphic novel, a graphic memoir or a collection of comics of any kind

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm a princess fan. I grew up with them and but I never wanted to be one. This is one princess I wouldn't mind being. Adrienne might have been born a princess, but she doesn't want to be a princess. In her world a princess comes of age and then gets locked in a tower with a dragon to guard her.  There she waits until a prince comes to save her.

Adrienne doesn't want that life, but her father doesn't give her a choice.  Stuck in her tower Adrienne gets the idea to use her dragon to free herself and go free her sisters. This turns into a humorous adventure. Adrienne is joined by the daughter of an armor maker who wants to design for women. This was one of my favorite sections in the book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story continues with Adrienne and her small troupe head off to save her sister Angelica.  While the group is trying to find Angelica's tower, the King is sending people after the 'knight' who killed his daughter, Adrienne. Things get hilarious when they can't find Angelica.  When they finally locate her, they find a small town has formed around her town. Artists, bards and the like have flocked to her tower; she is their muse.

I can't wait to see where this adventure goes!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can one say about Lumberjanes? It's great. It's weird. It's weirdly great in so many ways. The girls of Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqual Thistle Crumpte's camp for hard-core lady-types want an awesome summer but Jo, April, Molly, Mal, and Ripley are in for a summer they probably weren't expecting. There are some weird going ons in the woods around the camp, like three eyed foxes, monsters in the river and a mystery to solve.
