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”

The Bi Line: This Comic Has Everything! from @kleffnotes

During Pride Month I went on a hunt to find books and movies that would help me to grow my understanding of different people within the LGBTQ+ community. Now I will admit I was trying to save a bit of money so I stuck to streaming services and library related apps. In my quest for knowledge I watched all of the series Gaycation, the documentary Growing Up Coy, and a few other assorted shows and movies that were recommended in various Pride watch lists. While I was watching I also did a bit of a deep dive into comics and books on the Hoopla app, this app shares digital books you can read through an account connected to your library card and many libraries use this program. During this hunt I found Gender Queer, a touching memoir that I mentioned on Twitter immediately after I finished it, and I also found the comic I want to focus on today, Ask Me About Polyamory.

The Bi Line: Nymph and Zyra Comics ( @ZYRAComics ) from @kleffnotes

This year at ClexaCon while wandering Artist Alley I noticed a table with some super exciting merch I hadn’t seen anywhere else yet. On this specific table was not only Couple-ish art, but buttons. I was hooked and had to buy them. I chatted with one of the people behind the table and they mentioned that there was also an online comic that I could check out. Now they had me with Couple-ish, but I was definitely stoked to check out the comic. For this Bi-Line I’m focusing on Zyra Comics and their digital comic, Nymph.

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”

The Power of Mercy Book Review and Kickstarter News ( @YlvaPublishing ) from @kleffnotes

I’ve reviewed books from Ylva Publishing in the past and even did a feature on their books earlier this year as part of a series of ClexaCon related features. While at the convention I had the opportunity to pick up more of their books and found out about an amazing project they are undertaking. They have recently launched a Kickstarter to turn one of their books, The Power of Mercy, into a graphic novel. This is the first book in a series focused on a badass lesbian superhero of color, which is something that we definitely need more of in the world of superheroes.
