You may have noticed I have not been super present on The Nerdy Girl Express and that admittedly is because it has been exceptionally busy around here.

Back to the matter at hand though, I have a belated review that I admittedly am entirely at fault for the delay on. I somehow wrote that Savant was releasing in April, when in fact this graphic novel returned to shelves in March of 2022.

This is a fun read and definitely something you should check out, but keep reading to find out more.

Becstar Issue #1 immediately caught my eye because of the cover. Now yes, I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but with comics it seems impossible not to. The cover of this issue was done by Sweeney Boo, who is one of my favorite artists. I was hooked by the cover, but the story of Becstar definitely kept me interested.
