Saturday, May 4 is Free Comic Book Day at the library, and at participating comic shops all over the area. Stop by the library any time during the day and pick up a free comic book while supplies last!
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... Darth Vader, Sith Lord extraordinaire, was just a regular dad. Who knew?
Jeffrey Brown knew, and he has compiled a cheeky collection of comic drawings illustrating what life would have been like in Vader's house. It's awesome. Hilarious. Full of smart and subtle movie references, this collection is loaded with charm and sass.
It's a bird, it's a plane... it's a HERO!!!!
Did you know we've got a whole collection of graphic novels that feature heroes? We do! There are entire collections for Superman, Batman, Justice League, Spiderman, the Hulk and more on our Juvenile Fiction shelves. Also available are "new" superheroes, like the Tiny Titans, and "everyday" heroes like G.I. Joe.
Love winter sports? I thought I could grow to love them a few years back and hit the slopes a few times. At first I thought snowboarding would be so fun and "cool" because my son made it look like a piece of cake.
Hello, comics fans! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to the new year in comics. I know I am.
Hello, comics fans! We're taking a slight detour this session and starting off the holiday season with--gasp!--a picture book.
That's right. But this is no ordinary picture book; it's one that I believe deserves a look from anyone who appreciates illustration. Anyone who likes to tell the story themselves. Anyone who loves stories where those most in need get a miracle.
I think if there's one word to describe life in middle school, it is Drama. Hormones are awakening, bodies are changing, and everything is a crisis. Mountains are regularly made from molehills, unbearable angst rules the day and social lines are heavily drawn--sometimes with painful results.
Well, I thought I could edit my previous post to continue discussion on "A Wrinkle in Time: the graphic novel" but sadly, such is not the case. So I'll post here instead.
How awesome is this--the classic "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeline L'Engle has been released in graphic novel form! I just checked it out to review--can't wait! I'll let you know soon how it goes.
Who's ringing the doorbell at this time of night? Is it the Avon Lady?
