Comic Review: Avatar: the Last Airbender – Smoke and Shadow

Hey all, Dani here.

Well, it’s been a while since I talked about Avatar, but I’ve read all of the comics out following Aang, and sometime soon I’ll need to pick up the first trilogy of Korra comics. I totally had to rewrite this whole intro paragraph, because when I started to prep this post I hadn’t read the final Avatar trilogy–though it isn’t final anymore, as they announced more are coming– and I hadn’t watched “The Legend of Korra.” Oh, and apparently there will be a couple novels coming next year that follow Avatar Kyoshi, so that is pretty darn exciting too.

Anyway, let’s jump into this review.

Summary

Unrest in the Fire Nation!

Returning with his family after the events of The Search, Zuko discovers that not everyone in the Fire Nation celebrates their homecoming. Believing that the young Fire Lord is not fit to succeed his father–and spurred on by the Kemurikage, menacing spirits long thought to be only myths–an undergroundorganization called the New Ozai Society plots to assassinate Zuko and restore Ozai to power! 

What is the secret of the Kemurikage? 

The shadowy spirits known as the Kemurikage are abducting children throughout the Fire Nation Capital, sowing widespread fear and panic in their wake. Desperate to determine what has angered these spirits, Aang and Zuko search for clues deep in the Dragonbone Catacombs underneath the Fire Sages Capital Temple. Can they uncover the hidden history of the Kemurikage and solve the mystery in time, or will more children be taken?

The identity of the Kemurikage revealed! 

When Azula is discovered to be the ringleader of the shadowy Kemurikage, Aang and Zuko will stop at nothing to chase her down and rescue the children–even if it means turning on each other! As Zuko locks down the capital to find her, riots erupt in the streets and the citizens are on edge. An unexpected clue from Mai and Ty Lee will help Team Avatar uncover Azula’s plot, which is more sinister than they could have imagined. Will they stop her in time? 

My Thoughts

Rating: 5 stars

What I love about these comics is that the creative team behind the show are the ones creating the storylines. So they are consistent with the characterization of everyone from the series, and they answer some questions that I’m sure many of us were asking. It makes sense that there are those in the Fire Nation who don’t approve of Zuko as their ruler, especially considering everything that has happened in the previous comic trilogies.

Still, I love circling back to characters like Azula, and having a reappearance of Mai and Ty Lee. Plus, of course, we get more Team Avatar, which is always nice. I absolutely fly through these books. I have them all in paperback, so it divides the story into three parts, but the story is also available in an omnibus hardcover. All told, I think I read the whole trilogy in less than an hour.

I get so sucked into these stories, and it makes me so sad that I wasn’t a fan of Avatar back when it aired; I never watched a single episode until my fiance sat me down to start watching them last year. Now I am pretty much obsessed. It is why I have the next comics on my radar, and Kyoshi’s novels, and the live-action Netflix series…which I’m hopeful about since the creative team of Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, creators of both Avatar and Korra, are on board with this version of the show. Hopefully it will be better cast and better written. All we’ve seen so far is a promotional photo of Appa, but that looked pretty good, so we’ll see.

Anyway, I adore these, and I definitely recommend them for fans of the show.

Where to Buy

You can pick up these delightful comics from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-million, Book Depository, or your local indie bookstore.

Manga Review: Black Clover Vol 2

Hey all, Dani here.

It is Monday, which means that it is once again time for me to talk about manga. With my manga review backlog, I still have a few more months worth of posts, and naturally I will be reading more manga in that time, so frankly this series appears to be one that will be sticking around for the foreseeable future.

I hope you all are enjoying these manga and comic reviews that I post as well. I like the variety of reviewing all the different material I read, instead of just books. Coming soon I also have a couple reviews that will talk about not just the book but also the movie adaptations, so stay tuned.

Okay, let’s jump into the review.

Summary

Asta is a young boy who dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the kingdom. Only one problem-he can’t use any magic! Luckily for Asta, he receives the incredibly rare five-leaf clover grimoire that gives him the power of anti-magic. Can someone who can’t use magic really become the Wizard King? One thing’s for sure-Asta will never give up!

On the orders of the Wizard King, Asta and his allies head to a mysterious dungeon to retrieve a powerful relic. However, when mages from a rival country show up, this mission turns into an all-out battle. Can Asta lead his team to victory? 

My Thoughts

Rating: 5 stars

Okay, so I read this particular volume last month during the latest session of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. This was a manga/anime that my fiance and I just decided to try on a whim. I think we watched one episode and then I immediately bought the first volume. I now own five volumes, but I have plans to catch up with the series soon enough.

So I’ll be honest. I think Asta grows on you. He is so loud and enthusiastic. His determination is actually quite remarkable. I think I could put him on par with Natsu from Fairy Tail when it comes to that willpower and drive to never give up. I want to see him figure out his antimagic grimoire and succeed. If he does manage to become the Wizard King, then it would be highly impressive.

I actually like that while the bond of Asta and Yuno is still a big part of the story, we are getting a lot of time of Asta with the Black Bulls. And it is really interesting to get to learn more about each of the members of the Black Bulls, as well as to see how they interact with the other groups, from within their country and from the neighboring countries.

This volume really starts to expand the world more, and I am excited to see what will happen next.

Review: Amazing Fantastic Incredible – A Marvelous Memoir

Hey all, Dani here.

The great Stan Lee passed away on Monday, November 12, and I have been pretty much a mess since then. I curled up on the couch and cried. I scrolled through social media and read all the posts and comments, and looked at wonderful fan art from people’s memories or experiences with Stan. And then I went into my library, pulled this book down, and hugged it to my chest for an hour or so while my fiance and I watched TV.

On Tuesday, my Facebook memories revealed that I had actually read this memoir exactly two years earlier. A quick browse on the blog revealed that I had never actually done a review. So I sat down after work and read the book over again.

Before I jump into the review, I need to talk about my experience with Stan Lee. I feel fortunate in that I got to meet him twice. The first time I could only manage to get his autograph. This was a few years ago, and he looked so old and frail even then. But he was still pretty spirited. As he was signing his photo for me, I told him “Thank you very much,” and he replied in his adorable old man voice “You’re welcome very much.” He was just such a sweet old man, and he was honestly there because he loves his fans.

Then he was the featured guest at Cincinnati Comic Expo in 2016, and I knew I had to get a photo with him. It was so worth the long long wait in line.

fb_img_15422424984562470409862298336752.jpg

Stan Lee’s creations have been such a big part of my life. My first fandoms were pretty much Power Rangers and X-Men. My geekery has only expanded since those days. Now I’m into so very many superheroes, many of whom are popular today because of Stan. He created some and took over others. His characterizations and his ideas have honestly been an inspiration to me. I have looked forward to seeing his cameos every time I go to the movies to see the latest Marvel superhero movie. And I think there are still a couple more cameos that we’ll get to see. But I knew that he was getting old, and I knew that someday in the near future, we of the geek community would go to the movies and there would be no more cameos. That instead we would get text that would say “In Loving Memory of Stan Lee.” He was 95 years old; obviously he couldn’t live forever. Thankfully his stories will continue on.

But I’m still sad right now. (Also, the universe had better protect Betty White for at least a few more years.) Anyway, thank you for all of the great characters and the great stories, Mr. Lee. Excelsior!

Okay, thanks for listening to me. Let’s jump into the review now.

Summary

In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic memoir, Stan Lee—comic book legend and cocreator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes—shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be.

Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life—and into the mainstream—some of the world’s best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories—filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity—added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth century.

In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir—illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran—Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career.

This funny, moving, and incredibly honest memoir is a must-have for collectors and fans of comic books and graphic novels of every age.

My Thoughts

Rating: 4 stars

Okay, so when I read this last year I gave it a 4 star rating. Obviously considering my mental/emotional state right now, my second read-through is a 5 star rating. But for honesty’s sake, I’m leaving the rating as 4 stars.

I absolutely adored the fact that this memoir was written in a comic book style. It made it such a quick book to read through. And it is filled with details about Stan’s life and career and more. It was great to see the inclusion of narrator Stan breaking the fourth wall to speak to the readers, and it was amusing to watch narrator Stan interact with his younger self as he was telling little stories about his life. It was so meta, but I greatly enjoyed it.

Yes, I realize that there is some controversy around Stan Lee because he was so often given all of the credit for the comics, instead of the artists also being acknowledged. And Stan mentions that in this book, and he gives credit to several of the artists he had the privilege to work with over the years.

Much like the characters he created or wrote about, he was not perfect. But you know what, none of us are. But it was so cool to see how he kept pressing forward, and kept thinking and imagining and creating and writing. Seeing how he changed the rules for the superhero stories and comic book publishing in general was just super interesting to me.

I just think that this was a fascinating read. I’m glad that I sat down and read through this again.

Where to Buy

Review: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

Hey all, Dani here.

My progress on my backlog of reviews continues. I am trying to balance newer reviews with older ones, so thankfully this is a book I read last month. Though it is also a really late NetGalley review. I literally have a list on a sheet of paper of NetGalley books I need to read and review as soon as possible. My feedback ratio has dropped far lower than I would like it to be. I think it is 67% right now, which is awful. So I’d like to get it up closer to 80% again.

33509076

Summary

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.

What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

My Thoughts

Rating: 4 stars

I had wanted to read this book ever since I saw the cover early last summer. The gorgeous cover paired with the interesting story summary made me really intrigued by it. But as life seemingly often goes for us reader/blogger types, I got distracted by a bunch of other books and releases. This is especially not good when this was a NetGalley read. Oops.

So I finally decided that I would read this book, so that I could read the newly released sequel. And I flew through this book pretty quickly. The characters were pretty interesting, and I was definitely intrigued by the plot.

However, there was something that kept me from completely loving this book and giving it a 5 star rating, but if you asked me to point out a specific reason why, I wouldn’t exactly be able to give you a detailed answer. I just feel like it could have been a little more. The story was good, and I stayed interested the whole time.

Maybe I was just slightly disappointed because I set me expectations at a certain level thanks to my love for the cover. That could be it, but I don’t know.

I can definitely say that I will be picking up the sequel/companion story soon, because I am utterly fascinated by the harbingers and the bee keepers and all the culture and lore behind these beings.

What I’m Reading (39)

Hey all, Dani here.

Greetings and welcome to yet another Wednesday reading update post. I’m just a couple months away from this post series being a year old. I’m really glad that doing a weekly reading check-in has helped me keep posting, even as I continue to struggle to find a good balance between work, life, reading, and blogging. But I guess this is the new normal.

I think I’m going to end up prepping up a ton of posts soon-ish. Thanksgiving is coming, so holiday from work, but then Black Friday is the next day, and I try to avoid going anywhere near a store. Then in December the factory is pretty much closed from Christmas to the New Year, so I should have some days/time to try and catch up on my massive backlog of reviews and the like. Hopefully.

Anyway, this post is where I talk about the books I have finished reading over the past week, the books I am currently reading, and the books I hope to start reading soon. So, let’s just start talking about books.

I don’t really have many books to report in this post. All I can say is that I re-read Amazing Fantastic Incredible A Marvelous Memoir by Stan Lee and Peter David and Colleen Doran. This was an absolutely necessary read for me right now, considering that the wonderful Mr. Lee passed away on Monday.

25111012

I’ll likely have a review for his memoir up this week because I’m grieving his loss and need to talk about him and what Marvel comics have meant to me.

I’m still working on reading the same books I was last week: Escaping From Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco and Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. But I have added one of my most highly anticipated releases to my current reading list: Seasons Turning by Donaya Haymond.

51cfxjiasbl

Have I technically read this book a few times already? Well, yes, but Donaya has informed me that she made a few big changes in editing since the last time I read it. So I am very much looking forward to enjoying this story all over again.

Review: Terminal Alliance by Jim C Hines

Hey all, Dani here.

It is the start of my book review backlog! This particular book I was approved for by NetGalley in August 2017, with the book set to be released November 7, 2017. I actually finally got around to reading this book in July 2018, and the review is coming up now. Why did it take me so long to do all of this? I don’t know. Jim C. Hines is an author who I really enjoy, and the concept for this book sounded really fun. Oh, and the sequel is expected to come out in 2019, so I guess I’m posting at the perfect time for that.

Anyway, thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for approving me for this book. I actually ended up reading my hardcover copy.

Let’s jump into the review.

31363503

Summary

When the Krakau came to Earth, they planned to invite humanity into a growing alliance of sentient species.

This would have worked out better for all involved if they hadn’t arrived after a mutated plague wiped out half the planet, turned the rest into shambling, near-unstoppable animals, and basically destroyed human civilization. You know—your standard apocalypse.

The Krakau’s first impulse was to turn their ships around and go home. After all, it’s hard to establish diplomatic relations with mindless savages who eat your diplomats.

Their second impulse was to try to fix us.

A century later, human beings might not be what they once were, but at least they’re no longer trying to eat everyone. Mostly.

Marion “Mops” Adamopoulos is surprisingly bright (for a human). As a Lieutenant on the Earth Mercenary Corps Ship Pufferfish, she’s in charge of the Shipboard Hygiene and Sanitation team. When a bioweapon attack by an alien race wipes out the Krakau command crew and reverts the rest of the humans to their feral state, only Mops and her team are left with their minds intact.

Escaping the attacking aliens—not to mention her shambling crewmates—is only the beginning. Sure, Mops and her assortment of space janitors and plumbers can clean the ship, but flying the damn thing is another matter. As they struggle to keep the Pufferfish functioning and find a cure for their crew, they stumble onto a conspiracy that could threaten the entire alliance.

A conspiracy born from the truth of what happened on Earth all those years ago… 

My Thoughts

Rating: 4 stars

Let me start off by saying one thing: Space Janitors.

Seriously, that alone makes the concept of this story super entertaining. And speaking of Space Janitors, that was a really fun web-series picked up by Geek & Sundry, so I can recommend going to check that out too. It is sort of a Star Wars parody following janitors for the Empire.

This was a pretty entertaining read, and I especially love some of the pieced together details for the human race. A lot of it was really wrong, but that only made it more amusing. Like, the ships are named for feared creatures from earth…you know, like the fierce and deadly pufferfish. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the rest of the story, but seeing these details like what history of the human race these aliens put together was the highlight of this book for me.

Honestly, even though it made me super super late on my ARC review for NetGalley, I’m glad I waited until now to read this one, because the sequel will be out…early next year, I think…so I don’t have to wait as long to read that one. It will make all the details a little more fresh in my mind, which is nice.

I love Jim C. Hines as an author, and I think he makes awesome characters that I am compelled to care about or want to know more about them. This is no less true when it comes to the alien characters in this one. There was action galore, and a crew who is a little out of their league when it comes to running a ship…or fighting…or doing most things that aren’t focused on keeping the ship clean. But I think they did a pretty good job considering.

So I can’t wait to see where the sequel takes this janitorial squad next.

Manga Review: My Hero Academia Vol 12

Hey all, Dani here.

It is Monday once again, and that means it is time for another Manga Monday review post. I really should sit down for a couple hours and write up a bunch of these posts, because I read quite a few volumes of manga, and sometimes it leads to weeks or months before I get around to writing and posting the review. So sometimes I feel like the reviews could be a lot better instead of good yet generic.

Summary

Midoriya inherits the superpower of the world’s greatest hero, but greatness won’t come easy.

What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?

Class 1-A is working on developing their ultimate moves—a process that will test their strength and creativity in all-new ways! To help them out, Mei Hatsume, a student from the Support Class, is brought in to develop improvements to their costumes. The attention from Mei might be more than Midoriya can handle, but he’ll need every edge he can get to pass the next hurdle for the students of U.A.—the Provisional Licensing Exam!

My Thoughts

Rating: 5 stars

Ultimate moves. The return of Mei from the Support Class. The preparation for the Provisional Licensing Exam. Things are getting really interesting in this series, not that they weren’t interesting before. I just continue to be hooked by this series.

Oh, and to bring up my point about needing to be better about at least writing these reviews out closer to the time I finish reading volumes, I read this one back in July. Welcome to November, when the review is finally going up. I guess, on the plus side, I was also keeping up with the anime, so I experienced this part twice, so it isn’t completely shoved into the back of my mind.

I think working on their ultimate moves and figuring out what changes need to be made to their outfits is an intriguing one. It is cool to see the characters think about everything they have been through, and to see them identify strengths and weaknesses in their own abilities so they can find decent countermeasures.

Midoriya now focusing on his legs more than his arms leads him to some training with Iida, which I think is a pretty smart move.

And oh my goodness, Mei is such a persistent and slightly crazy character. But I enjoy her so much. She is obviously very into making all sorts of gadgets to help heroes. Making good products only means that she will be more successful in her own life and career. Even when she goes overboard, it is absolutely fascinating. And her interactions with her teacher because of all of it is amusing to me.

When I read this I remember being excited to see what would come in the Provisional Licensing Exam. I have gotten so attached to pretty much all of the characters, and it just makes it to where I want to see them succeed, even when the stakes seem pretty high or near impossible. It keeps me waiting for the release of the next volume so I can learn more. Quite simply, I love this series.

NaNoWriMo 2018 Update 2

Hey all, Dani here.

Wow…somehow it is already November 11th. Yikes. And since it is Sunday, I guess it is time for my to give another NaNoWriMo update. Again, as this post is going up in the morning, I will measure my progress against the word count I needed for the 10th of the month. That means 16,666 words is where I am supposed to be to be on track for the month.

Oh boy. I wish I had a great update to give you all. However, I can say that I did actually manage to write some words. Specifically I wrote some words on my nerdy contemporary romance I’ve been wanting to write. I helped my region’s Municipal Liaison host a write-in this past week while she was out of town.

It was at the write-in, on Wednesday, November 7th. We met up at Panera. Well, I would say we, but the only ones who showed up were myself and my fiance. He started drafting a fantasy series he’s been thinking of writing for a while. It should be a great story; the characters are pretty darn awesome.

As for me, I managed to write 465 words…which I know, isn’t a lot. And it certainly didn’t bring me anywhere close to where I needed to be for the month. But as I looked over the scene I wrote, I felt so darn good, everyone. Seriously. I think I can add a little more detail and substance to the scene in future drafts, but for right now I am pretty happy with what I wrote. And it felt so nice to put words on the page again.

That little burst of writing put my total words written for the month at 607 words. In comparison, I have written 2903 words for blog posts in the past week. Oh, and that total doesn’t count what I’ve written for this post.

So, I definitely need to prioritize my writing for the rest of the month. There is still plenty of time to catch up, but I need to actually set aside time each day to work on creative writing.

With any luck, my update next week will show that I’ve actually been writing.

How are you lovely writers out there doing with your writing projects? I hope you are doing well. That is all from me today, but I’ll be back soon with more bookish content.

What I’m Reading (38)

Hey all, Dani here.

Wow, it’s Wednesday again already. Awesome. Welcome back to me talking about my reading for the last week…which is probably not going to be the most exciting post, because I don’t think that I have a whole lot to talk about.

What I do want to talk about first is all the lovely people who made comments on my NaNoWriMo update from a few days ago. Thank you all so much for caring and encouraging me. I’ve been away from creative writing for a little longer than I would like to admit, and it was so great to have so many of you help motivate me. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

At the time this post goes live, I will just be getting off work, and then I have to go home and pack up all of my writing gear so I can go to Panera for a local write-in.

But first let’s talk about the little bit I have read in the last week. Well, I have read about another 20 pages of Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. And then I managed to get to around the 200 page mark with Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Mansicalco.

For right now, I don’t think I’m going to make plans for books I want to start in the next week. I still have some NaNoWriMo writing to catch up on, and I think these books are going to occupy me for a little bit longer.

How is your week going? Let me know in the comments. I will be back soon with more bookish content.

Book Tag, Books!, Inspiration, Signal Boost

The Library Lover’s Book Tag

Hey all, Dani here.

My blog backlog isn’t just a bunch of reviews. I actually have a few different tags to finish up as well. So once again, I have to thank Katie at Never Not Reading for tagging me in a fun little book tag. What I especially love about this one is that it has a focus on libraries. Considering that I do have a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science, and of course being a bookworm, libraries are a big part of my life.

So let’s not waste any time, and I’ll just jump into the questions.

How often do you visit your local library?

Not nearly as often as I did when I was younger. I did go to the library once last month, but that was to use their access to Ancestry to do some genealogical work for my fiance. I don’t really use my library for book borrowing any more. There are so many books I have in my home library that I need to read. Not to mention all the galleys and ARCs I get as well. But I may have to put myself on a bit of a book buying restriction, so my library may just be seeing me a lot more frequently in the near future.

Are you the type of person who checks out more books than you can read or are you someone who checks out the exact amount of books you intend to read before they are due?

Well, I check out as many books as I should be able to read in the time before they are due. BUT, some days I end up not getting to read as much as I would like, which means that it sometimes seems like I check out more than I can read in that time.

How old were you when you got your first library card?

When I was little, the library rules were that you couldn’t have your own card until you were 5 years old. So I have had my first library card since then, so for 25 years now. But my library has changed their rules so that parents can get kids books out on their children’s cards; I think the age limit is 6 months or older now.

Do you go to your library for a particular book or do you check out anything that piques your interest?

A little bit of both, depending. Sometimes I’ll go there for a specific book, sometimes I’ll wander through both the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section and the YA section, and sometimes I’ll do a little bit of both.

Do you only check out books or do you also get DVDs, audiobooks, etc.?

Books and DVDs, though there was a little while when I just went online and borrowed e-books.

From what section of the library do you check out most of your books?

Sci-Fi/Fantasy and YA

What is your favorite part of using your local library?

The library was my happy place when I was growing up. I discovered so many wonderful stories because of being an avid user of the library. So even now when I don’t make frequent visits, I still have fond memories of all my time there. What is really great about using a library is being able to try out a book that you may or may not enjoy without having to go buy it at the store. Libraries are accessible to pretty much everyone, and I like that they make the books easy to access as well.


At this point I am supposed to tag others to do this book tag, but I don’t know who has or has not done it already, so if you would like to do this quick little set of questions then you are TAGGED!

Thanks for reading everyone, and I will be back soon with more bookish content.
