Currently Reading (Bakuman & Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru)

Bakuman is a manga about two jr. high kids that decide they want to become a mangaka’s (creators). It’s a very nice story with a lot of information on how manga is made and published. It is by the same creative team that did Death Note. It is definitely one to check out.

Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru is about a kid that got bullied out of the gymnastics club and thrown right into the Karate Club. Lots of fighting. Very good art. I’m still seeing if I like the story or not.

My review


rating: 3 of 5 stars
I just finished Wanted and I wasn’t overly wowed by it. I don’t know I just don’t think it’s as great as everyone makes it out to be.

Spreading the comic joy

I’ve officially converted my 4 year old niece. When ever she comes over to my house she has a bucket of action figures to play with (no Barbies, thank you). All the figures are Superman, Star Wars, Fantastic Four and Spider-man (her favorite). She loves Owly, and she keeps bugging me to get her the Owly stuffed toy. She created her own Superhero on Marvels sight the other day and printed off five copies one for everyone to put on their walls. Anytime there is a comic on my desk or bed when she comes over (which is a lot) she grabs the book and starts looking at the pictures and then asks me what is being said.

The other day we were watching the Batman The Animated series and Batman was getting into some trouble with Poison Ivy and she stands up on the bed and starts yelling, “Quick Spider-man, come save Batman!” Although she doesn’t quite get that Spider-man and Batman don’t fight crime together yet, I still thought it was cute and am going to remember that forever.

Least to say I’m having an amazing time making my niece a comic fan!


I also gave my mom the first trade of Scalped last year before she moved, I’m going to have to find out how she liked it.

Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! #1

I was at my comic shop this morning to pick up a few books when I spotted this book. Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! is written and drawn by Mike Kunkel the creator of Herobear And The Kid. The art is great, it’s really a nice feeling book and you can tell a lot of love went into this book. Billy turns into Shazam no real spoiler there. In the first issue we get to see some neat adventures with Shazam and Mary and how they get through they’re days. I like this book and am going to be getting the next issue. Check it out. I can’t wait for the trade on this. I had way too much fun with it.
