Snotgirl by Bryan Lee O’Malley and Leslie Hung

When I had first heard that Bryan Lee O’Malley was working on a new project, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to read it. O’Malley has earned a lifetime of appreciation from me for his brilliant debut comic, Scott Pilgrim. Then, when I heard that the new main character was a…

Sunday Mise en Place (Dec. 4 to 10, ‘017)

Hooo! What a long weekend. Jenn’s family was in town for a little pre-Christmas cheer. We had a wonderful time, and the kids got to spend the weekend in the hotel with everybody. We shared some excellent meals, some great laughs, and an afternoon at the science centre. But, ugh, am I wiped. And, this…

Sunday Mise en Place (Nov. 27 to Dec. 3, ‘017)

Welcome to the first Sunday Mise en Place of December. This is an exciting month for bloggers as December operates a bit differently than other months.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

I went into today planning on doing a review on Thor: Ragnorak. Which I will do right now: So. Bloody. Good. I wanted to talk about the fantastic cinematic adventure it was, and how Marvel has made movies an absolute blast. How Thor had a perfect blend of action, adventure, comedy, and stakes. Plus, the…

5 Must See December ‘017 Movies

As I said last December in the ‘016 round-up, nothing good ever happens in December. You know, other than Christmas and many of the biggest box office releases of all time. This year is no different, as we all have been long awaiting the release of the next instalment from the world’s greatest franchise. Jumanji….

Deconstructed: Inferior Five #8

I am fortunate to have found today’s issue for the Deconstructed. I had no idea who, or what the Inferior Five were before I Deconstructed Justice League of America #62 back in September. The Inferior Five title consisted of only 12 issues through 1967 and 1968, making it a difficult book to find. By chance,…

Professor Ladybug: Teaches ABC

I am excited to review this next workbook in the Professor Ladybug library. A couple of weeks ago I shared a review of Alphabet Animals, and my daughter and I had a lot of fun with it. Alex (5), enjoyed that workbook so much that she has almost filled out every page, and spent much…
