A couple of weeks ago my neighbour had a clear out and left a massive box of comic books on her doorstep - for nice nerds only. Now, I don't like to toot my own horn, but I like to think I'm a nice nerd - so I took about half the box! I sorted… Continue reading Free comic book haul

My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

Judging a book by its cover: Comics and graphic novels

A few weeks ago my lovely baby brother bought me this copy of Death of the Family (Batman: New 52). The cover is amazing and I immediately had to share it online. It got me thinking about other new, special and limited editions of awesome comics. As you probably already know, Batman is my favourite… Continue reading Judging a book by its cover: Comics and graphic novels

Fictional female role models

I got to thinking the other day about the TV shows that I watch and I realised that they feature some pretty bad-ass, strong women in leading roles.
