Dorian Gray Graphic Novel Review from @kleffnotes

The story of Dorian Gray is a classic that has been reworked and rewritten in a variety of mediums, but this adaptation does more than any other version I have experienced. This graphic novel by Darren G. Davis and Scott Davis takes the Victorian Lothario and brings his story into the modern age. It also blends in supernatural and demonic elements unlike anything I’ve seen before. Continue reading “Dorian Gray Graphic Novel Review from @kleffnotes”

My Kingdom for a Panel Comic Review ( @arledgecomics) from @kleffnotes

Earlier this month I shared information about the brand new Kickstarter from Arledge Comics for their anthology comic, My Kingdom for a Panel. I recently received the chance to check out the book a little bit early and wanted to share my thoughts on this Shakespearean anthology before the Kickstarter closes on June 6th.  This is the perfect collection for both comic and literary lovers everywhere.

Alex Priest #3 and #4 Comics Review ( @arledgecomics ) from @kleffnotes

Alex Priest is back! Admittedly Alex Priest has been back for a little while, but I only recently was able to pick up a copy of the third and fourth issues of the series. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Alex Priest, the genderqueer vampire hunter, works for an agency known as Living Corpses that Bite (LC & B), but when it appears that vampires have found a way to do magic they are going to have to team up with their ex, Janelle Garcia from Demon Eradication And Denial (DEAD LLC). The first two issues sucked me in and issues three and four definitely did not disappoint. Continue reading “Alex Priest #3 and #4 Comics Review ( @arledgecomics ) from @kleffnotes”

Lumberjanes Comic Highlight from @kleffnotes

One of my favorite comics in this world is Lumberjanes, which might actually surprise some people. Typically I suggest a lot of darker and more mature reads, but this book is a fun and sweet tween read. All of the characters are technically within the tween age range, April even uses it in an argument with a sasquatch, which is not something you would see every day. At the Lumberjanes camp a group of five girls have been brought together as part of Roanoke cabin and their summer has been anything, but normal.

Sparks: The Way I Was Comic Review ( @glenn_matchett ) from @kleffnotes

Glenn Matchett is back with a sequel to his P.I. focused comic Sparks, which I previously wrote about as well as a few other works by Matchett. What makes this addition a bit of a shift in tone is that fact that it gives us not only a current day murder, but also flashes back to show readers how Mel Sparks came to be where she is today. This gripping read will push you to embrace and understand what can happen when someone finds themselves pushed to the edge. Continue reading “Sparks: The Way I Was Comic Review ( @glenn_matchett ) from @kleffnotes”

Strong Female Protagonist Comic Review from @kleffnotes

I saw Strong Female Protagonist at a bookstore and on a whim decided that I wanted to check this two book series out. This was one of the best decisions of my reading career. Yes, I’m saying I have a career in reading, I do a lot of reviewing which means that combined with pleasure reading seems like a career level amount of time. This series might focus on a former superhero, but it is nothing like your traditional superhero read. Continue reading “Strong Female Protagonist Comic Review from @kleffnotes”

Miskatonic High Comic Kickstarter from @kleffnotes

Two of my favorite things are the worlds of H.P. Lovecraft and comics and something amazing is bringing these topics together through the drama of high school. Miskatonic High recently kicked off their Kickstarter campaign to create print copies of their first issue. I was able to check out the first and second issue and wanted to share my spoiler free thoughts on the series and why you should support this comic.

The Wicked and The Divine Comic Series Feature from @kleffnotes

In December I typically have a little bit of downtime where I can indulge in catching up on some comics that I have gotten desperately behind in. I read the first four volumes of The Wicked and The Divine ages ago, but had just never seemed to find time to read the next three volumes. Now I know this means I’m still not completely caught up with the series, but being caught up with all of the collected volumes is alright with me.
