Graphic Novel Review: Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor Archives Omnibus Vol. 1

Publisher: Titan ComicsFormat: PaperbackRelease Date: September 30th, 2015 Rating: 4/5 Stars Every so often, what feels like an extremely long time ago now, I’d pick up the Doctor Who magazine and read about the series, the cast, old episodes I’d never seen. But my favourite part of the magazine was always the comic in theContinue reading “Graphic Novel Review: Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor Archives Omnibus Vol. 1”

Publisher: Cornerstone DigitalFormat: MOBIRelease Date: November 12th, 2020 Rating: 3/5 Stars Thank you to Cornerstone for providing me with this ebook via NetGalley. Views remain my own, of course!

Fid’s Crusade – David H. Reiss [BBNYA Blog Tour]

Yet another BBNYA finalist, and my favourite of the three I read. Fid’s Crusade is powerful, charged, and emotional, with a really intriguing take on the superhero mythos. It takes a similar view to The Boys (graphic novel and TV show) when it comes to so-called heroes, but it’s handled in such a different way,Continue reading “Fid’s Crusade – David H. Reiss [BBNYA Blog Tour]”

The Umbrella Academy, Volume 1: The Apocalypse Suite

Genre: Sci-FiRelease Date: October 17th, 2007Publisher: Dark Horse ComicsRating: 5/5 Stars This seems to happen whenever I talk about graphic novels that have now been adapted. If you have not yet read this yet, don’t expect much in these pages to resemble the TV show. Things like the character names are sometimes the same, butContinue reading “The Umbrella Academy, Volume 1: The Apocalypse Suite”

Catalyst – Tracy Richardson [WriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour]

Synopsis Marcie Horton has a sixth sense. Not in the “I see dead people” way, but . . . well, maybe a little. She feels a sort of knowing about certain things that can’t be explained-an intuition that goes beyond the normal. Then there was that one summer four years ago, when she connected withContinue reading “Catalyst – Tracy Richardson [WriteReads Ultimate Blog Tour]”

The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas, Volume 1 [Books]

Can you tell I am absolutely loving Audible? I try to mix up what I get, and so far I’ve tried non-fiction, full cast, fiction single person narration, and now The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas. Having grown up in the UK, The Twilight Zone wasn’t something I had access to. Not long after we first got together, IContinue reading “The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas, Volume 1 [Books]”

Vicious – V.E. Schwab [Books]

It’s been just over a year now since I started reading books by V.E Schwab, and every single one has been absolute gold. I’m slowly building up my collection and working my way through her novels. So far, I’ve read the Shades of Magic trilogy, The Near Witch, and City of Ghosts, as well as the Steel Prince graphic novel more recently.Continue reading “Vicious – V.E. Schwab [Books]”
