Graphic Novels v.4 ♦ Spookiness Abounds

Figured it was time for another round-up of graphic novels, and this time I thought, since Halloween is right around the corner, I would focus on the creepier side of comics. Can it really be nearly October? This year is flying by, but I can’t complain, since Halloween is my very favoritest holiday!


The Complete
Bite Club

Don't miss this 264-page volume collecting both the original critically acclaimed BITE CLUB and its sequel, BITE CLUB: VAMPIRE CRIME UNIT!

The Sopranos have nothing on the Del Toros, a vampire clan that has run organized crime in Miami for nearly a century. Beautiful, rich and immortal, these bloodsuckers are also masters of backstabbing and in-fighting.

Author: Chaykin & Tischman Genre: Graphic Novel
Illustrator: David Hahn Type: Softcover Color 264 pages
Publisher: Vertigo Publication Date: August 2007

My Thoughts   
When the first single comic issue of Bite Club was released I picked up a copy and was instantly intrigued, Vampires – Sopranos style! For whatever reason I ended up missing the next couple issues and *wham* forgot all about it. Until …. I walked into my library and saw this gorgeous complete book that collected all of the Bite Me series as well as the sequel. Which was awesome because I could sit myself down and read it straight through without worrying or waiting for the next installment.

It ended up being as good as I’d hoped. The Del Toros’ are a family of vampires, and also one of the major families in the Miami underworld. They run legitimate businesses as a front for their less community friendly enterprises, but everything comes to a grinding halt when Eduardo, the head of the family, is killed (with wooden bullets no less.) Now the remaining family (blood members, and mob) are drawn together to figure out who will take over. And this is when it gets going, there is fighting, affairs, brown-nosing, secret plots, treachery, bitter rivalries, incest(?!), sex, blood and violence. So uhh yeah not exactly proper reading for the young ones.

It may sound like it’s all just action, but there are subtle (very, very subtle) traces of serious drama to be found. A good example would be Risa, daughter to the deceased mob boss. She’s hot, smart, and determined to run the business no matter what it takes. The only thing standing in her way is that no one really takes her seriously (being a girl and all.) Then there is Leto who faces a pretty tough decision. He is a vampire who turned to religion to escape the darkness of, not only his vamp side, but also his family. Now that his father is dead he must decide whether to stay true to his god or to his family.

All in all, Bite Club was a fun, short diversion into the life of a Miami-Vampire-Mob-Family.


Dead High Yearbook

Meet The Students Of Dead High

Watch as they encounter their grisly fates: death by vampire attack; body invasion by muscle-building “supplements” gone haywire; a car crash that leaves the victim somewhere between life and death; and a twisted love triangle ending in violence.

Dead High. It’s A Killer School.

Author: Various Genre: Young Adult Graphic Novel
Illustrator: Various Type: Hardcover 80 pages
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile Publication Date: March 2007

My Thoughts    
First off, I’ll admit I picked up Dead High Yearbook solely because of how much I wanted to examine the books binding. Sitting on a display stand, it looked like an actual yearbook. Beautifully textured cover (you know the kind with a cushy feel,) the pages were heavy, high gloss type and it was just irresistible (oooh look at the shiny, sparkly thing.)

So back to the book. On the inside front cover we see typical yearbook photos of high school kids. Turn the page and the reader is introduced to the rather strange group of kids who make up the school yearbook committee. Together they are compiling the info for the coming year’s edition. As each person is found we segue into a story about that student. The rest of the book follows this format of stories, intermingled with the yearbook staff. Now on the back inside cover we see the pictures that this committee has compiled and while it stars the same students from the front of the book, let’s just say that they’ve changed a bit over the school-year!

Dead High Yearbook was thoroughly entertaining and I enjoyed each story. The actual stories have that Tales From The Crypt feel to them, some ironic, some funny, some with a moral, some just gross. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping to see another installment of this someday.


Emily The Strange


Emily The Strange -- Emily may be odd, but she always gets even! Meet Emily, the peculiar soul with long black hair, a wit of fire, and a posse of slightly sinister black cats. Famous for her barbed commentary and independent spirit, this rebel-child in black has spawned an Internet and merchandising phenomenon (Emily's Web site gets 35,000 hits per month!). Emily the Strange, her first book, captures the quintessential Emily, featuring her most beloved quips and a host of new ones. Anarchist, heroine, survivor, this little girl with a big personality appeals to the odd child in us all.

Author: Rob Reger, Cosmic Debris Genre: Graphic Novel
Illustrator: Rob Reger, Cosmic Debris Type: Hardcover 64 pages
Publisher: Chronicle Books Publication Date: July 2001

My Thoughts    
What can I really say about this book? If you’ve ever seen anything featuring an Emily graphic then you know what you’re in for. Emily is strange, but in my opinion that’s not a bad thing. The entire book is filled with artwork done in red, white and black. The illustrations are very appealing, some are basic, but others are filled with tiny details. Most of the text is presented in short one to three sentence phrases, some funny, some weird, and some that prompt deeper thinking.

This particular Emily book gives a new reader a brief glimpse into who Emily is. There isn’t that much to the book, but I still enjoy it. Sometimes strangeness should be celebrated and I like that.


Emily’s Book
Of Strange

Emily's Secret Book of Strange -- The secret life of Emily the Strange is quite a bit more strange than was previously understood. Uncover the truth behind her mysterious world in this recently discovered volume, Emily's Secret Book of Strange, the revealing companion to the best-selling Emily the Strange. Enter, if you dare, the house that Emily built. Decipher the secret language of the Emily Strange Posse: Morose Code. Learn little known facts, like what's developing in Emily's darkroom. In the same graphic style, with the same high production values, and featuring all new art, Emily's Secret Book of Strange is an irresistible sequel for Emily fans everywhere.

Author: Rob Reger, Cosmic Debris Genre: Graphic Novel
Illustrator: Rob Reger, Cosmic Debris Type: Hardcover 64 pages
Publisher: Chronicle Books Publication Date: February 2003

My Thoughts   
The format of this, the second Emily book is pretty much exactly the same as the first one. Great illustrations with short little messages from or about Emily. In this volume the reader gets to learn a little more about Emily in between random strangeness. Emily isn’t just a little girl with dark intentions, she’s about art, imagination, music, experimenting, learning and being creative. I think the reason I like the Emily books is that she is a girl who seems to say “I’m strange, and if you don’t like it – so what!” As an added bonus included in the back is a secret glossary of the symbols Emily has created. And with this code the reader can translate some hidden message spread throughout the book. Another example of Emily’s creative strangeness.


Hills Have Eyes:
The Beginning

Deep within the remote hills of the New Mexico desert, a group of townspeople thought wiped out by the United States government when it began above-ground atomic testing has returned to the now-irradiated land they still claim as their home. Within the eye of this nuclear storm good people will go bad, battle lines will be drawn, and a new family of mutated monstrosities must protect their own at all costs in a mind-boggling orgy of blood and vengeance.

The Hills Have Eyes: The Beginning tells for the first time the epic origin story behind Wes Craven's classic tale of mutant carnage, leading into and bridging the gap between the 2006 remake of The Hills Have Eyes and its sequel, The Hills Have Eyes 2.

Author: Palmiotti & Gray Genre: Graphic Novel
Illustrator: John Higgins Type: Softcover 112 pages
Publisher: Harper Collins Publication: July 2007

My Thoughts    
In case you didn’t know I am a huge horror fan, I love it in all it forms and what got me started on this life-long obsession was scary movies. The original Hills Have Eyes from 1977 has been a favorite of mine for some time, and the remake in 2006 is probably one of the only remakes I’ve respected in that it stayed true to the original screenplay. The basic idea behind the films is that somewhere in the California Desert there is a family of severely mutated cannibals preying on lost travelers. The film versions have focused on the travelers with only minimal historical mention of the hill people. All the viewer really knows it that their mutations were caused by nuclear testing done by the US military.

Now with this graphic novel The Beginning, the focus is turned around and the secrets are revealed as to how these people came to be cannibalistic killers. I enjoyed this story and felt it compliments the movies quite well. Now if only someone would write the screenplay!


Legends of the Dark Crystal:
Garthim Wars


This much-anticipated original prequel to Jim Henson's fantasy masterpiece is set 100 years before The Dark Crystal, the groundbreaking film that won the hearts and minds of fans all over the world and set the stage for the new age of muppet-making.

Author: Various Genre: Graphic Novel
Illustrator: Various Type: Softcover 192 pages
Publisher: TokyoPop Publication Date: November 2007

My Thoughts   
I’m not sure what was wrong with me when I read this. I’ve loved The Dark Crystal since I first watched it as a little kid, but somehow this comic just didn’t work for me. The artwork was gorgeous even though I felt the Gelfling didn’t quite look as they should. The story was interesting as this book is telling what happened before the film. But I dunno, there was just something missing. Or maybe this is just one of those stories I feel works better on screen than in book/comic form.


Peculia & The Groon Grove Vampires

Night is coming and the local baby-sitters club needs an extra sitter. That strange new family in town is expecting four warm bodies, not three — one for each member of their household. Each sharp-toothed, blood-thirsty, downright undead member of their household! Sala's popular character Peculia, a mysterious and clever young waif, returns in this, her first full-length story! This deliciously macabre graphic novel manages to both parody and celebrate elements of classic horror and vampire tales.

Author: Richard Sala Genre: Graphic Novel
Illustrator: Richard Sala Type: Softcover 80 pages
Publisher: Fantagraphics Books Publication Date: November 2005

My Thoughts    
Peculia and The Groon Grove Vampires was campy comic fun! A trio of girls who form the local babysitter’s club get asked to all babysit for the new family in town – but this family needs four sitters, so by chance the three girls ask Peculia if she could help them out. But upon entering the spooky old house where they are to sit, Peculia begins to think something strange is going on. And when the family reveal their big teeth all hell breaks lose.

What a fun read this one was! It comes across as a mixture of horror movie, campy comedy with a touch of Scooby-Doo Mystery thrown in for good measure. I really liked that this story didn’t try to be serious because the small hints of humor made it all the more enjoyable. There isn’t too much mature subject matter in this comic, but I would say it would probably be more appreciated by young adult readers and older.divider6

Details Synopsis
David Almond
Delacorte Books
Hardcover 208 Pages

When a move to a new house coincides with his baby sister's illness, Michael's world seems suddenly lonely and uncertain. Then, one Sunday afternoon, he finds something magical. A strange creature - part owl, part angel, a being who needs Michael's help if he is to survive. But Skelling is far more than he at first appears, and Michael's world changes forever...

My Six Sentences My Rating
Skellig was the first book I read by David Almond (that apparently I was missing out on before because he is a super-fantastic author.) Now I’m so glad that I checked out this particular book because it really was magical. It reminded me of reading Alice In Wonderland when I was a little kid. Skellig is the type of book that allowed me to completely throw off my “I’m a fully grown woman who shouldn’t yearn to believe in the unbelievable” costume. But (and this is a good but) not only was Skellig a great way for me personally to recapture that imaginative, child-like enjoyment, Skellig also gave me a lot of more adult things to consider, things like family, friends, responsibility and seeing the possibility of caring for things we may at first fear for their strange unfamiliarity. 5 of hearts

Christopher Golden 
MTV Books
Paperback 320 Pages

Three mediums have gathered for a live broadcast on network television. They believe they can jointly create a massive communication network, thinning the barrier between this world and the next, and every spirit within a 300 mile radius will be able to cross over, briefly, to speak to grieving loved ones. What sounds like a miracle quickly becomes a nightmare - for 300 miles around fragments of corpses dig themselves out of the ground and seek out those they left behind with sinister intentions.

My Six Sentences My Rating
Mentions of zombies was the only reason why I picked this up, I love them, so my bookish-side convinced me I would enjoy this short YA read. Nope, not happening, I found it to be way too cliche for my taste. A little too reminiscent of a whole gaggle of familiar plotlines thrown together with a cast of cardboard cut-out characters. However, I am not the target audience for this book (it’s been a few years too many since I could fit into the YA classification.) This book might work extremely well for the intended readers looking for a quick, easy read, just not for me.

Details Synopsis
Laurie Halse Anderson
Puffin Books
Trade PB 240 Pages

Laurie Halse Anderson’s award-winning, highly acclaimed, and controversial novel about a teenager who chooses not to speak rather than to give voice to what really happened to her marks ten years in print with this special anniversary edition. Bonus material created for this edition includes a new introduction and afterword from the author, resources, and discussion guide.

My Six Sentences My Rating
Another book that I really don’t match up with in terms of target age-range, the thing with this book is that I can see that it would be a wonderfully educative read for young adults. It focuses on some pretty heavy themes, and presents them in an appropriate way that I think teens could relate to. I’d give this book a 5 ♥’s rating in terms of being a recommended read. However my own feelings are biased because of personal reasons relating to the experiences of the main character (I wanted to scream at her to deal, because that’s how I did it.)  But everyone is different and has different ways of dealing with things, and mine being the opposite of the character in this book, does not necessarily make either of us wrong. And so that’s why I gave it a 4 of ♥’s.

BBAW ♦ A Meme & A Thank You

Well, I’m a little late to the BBAW festivities, but it’s been awesome to read through all the info and posts covering what’s been happening since BBAW kicked off. Now first off, huge piles of congrats to everyone who received a BBAW nomination, made the shortlist or took home an award! Also congrats to Amy and the entire crew who worked together to make BBAW such an amazing success – Wow! you guys are good!

It’s been crazy-busy around my place the last two weeks with school starting back up, the kids trying out/joining up all kinds of school clubs and sports teams … so I missed out on a lot of what was happening. Checking through my incredible mess of emails I found out I had been nominated for 7 (I still can’t believe it) BBAW award categories:

Best Blog Name
Best Graphic Novel Review Blog
Best Post (Two To Six)
Best Reviews
Best Speculative Fiction Blog
Best Writing
Most Chatty

And I ended up making the shortlist for Best Speculative Fiction Blog – woot! Thanks everyone ♥

Since I missed the daily blogging topics for the past week, I thought I’d try to catch up by doing up the cool Reading Meme from Wednesday.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Favorite reading snack definitely Goldfish crackers!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
It doesn’t horrify me, but I prefer using a notepad or post-it notes.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Bookmarks, receipts, ripped pieces of paper, yarn, chocolate bar wrappers :P

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Hard copy or audiobooks?
Hard copies are preferred, but since I haven’t mastered the art of reading while driving, or running on the treadmill I do listen to audiobooks at times.

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or put a book down at any point?
Normally I read to the end of a chapter or to a break in narrative.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
At times I do, but when I’m feeling lazy I just jot the word and page number to check out later.

What are you currently reading?
The Complete Guide to Acquisitions Management by Wilkinson and Lewis (sigh)

What is the last book you bought?
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah

Are you the type that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?
My worst (or best?) reading habit is having many books on the go at once.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Nope. Anytime, anywhere is good for me.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
It all depends on how I feel, I love series’ but standalones are awesome too. Sometimes I want to stay in the world of a series or follow the character further, but there are those times when I want to escape and meet new characters, visit new places.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski and Geek Love by Katherine Dunn – I believe these are two books everyone should experience. As for authors, I have the intense desire to make everyone I know read at least one volume by Hunter S. Thompson.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
My books are organized by format first – paperbacks in rec room, trade paperbacks, hardcovers in hallway. Then alphabetized by author. Non-fiction has it’s own shelves, as well as classics. Reference and school books stay together in another area. Oh and there are special bookcases for zombie books, books about books and non-fiction concerning horror/paranormal culture.  Plus there is a completely separate area for my TBRs. Umm yeah it’s a mess only I can decipher.

On a totally unrelated note – I just realized yesterday that my blog was completely screwed up, the menu bar at the top specifically. Apparently the site I was using to host my java files deleted them (d*ckheads!) Any suggestions on a new filehost?

TSS ♦ Challenges: An Update

Year Of Magical Thinking
Joan Didion
Vintage International
Trade PB 227 Pages
From one of America’s iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage – and a life, in good times and bad – that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child.
My Six Sentences My Rating
Starting on the book I had prepared myself to haul out the tissues, as I had heard that this memoir was one of the saddest books. But I didn’t tear up while reading, probably because even though it was terribly sad, it was one of the most heart-warming books I’d ever read. Joan Didion writes (shares) her thoughts about the death of her life partner and the simultaneous illness of their child in such a incredible way. She never seemed to hold back on the misery she was going through, but it was hearing about how she dealt with it that really made me love this book. Her actions and reactions may not have been the same as mine in that situation. But the true enjoyment I got from this book was seeing that sometimes the worst can happen, but we can get through it.

Details Synopsis
Hurry Down Sunshine 
Michael Greenberg 
Hardcover 233 Pages

An extraordinary family story and a memoir of exceptional power. In it, Michael Greenberg recounts in vivid detail the remarkable summer when, at the age of fifteen, his daughter was struck mad. It begins with Sally's sudden visionary crack-up on the streets of Greenwich Village, and continues, among other places, in the out-of-time world of a Manhattan psychiatric ward during the city's most sweltering months. It is a tale of a family broken open, then painstakingly, movingly stitched together again.

My Six Sentences My Rating
I cannot believe that I finished this book, but I did. It’s not at all what I had expected or hoped for. For example, in the books description it says “An extraordinary family story” – but in my opinion it wasn’t balanced enough to be about a family. It’s a memoir of a father’s experience dealing with a mentally ill daughter, but the daughter is so absent from the story that I really couldn’t care less about any of the characters involved. I’d hoped to hear more about the relationship between father and daughter, instead I found it focused entirely too much on the father. The narrative felt self-pitying and a little too “center of the universe” for me.

With On Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft, Stephen King shares his insights into the craft of writing and offers a humorous perspective on his own experience as a writer.

My Six Sentences My Rating
I didn’t read this book because I’m a writer, or aspire to be a writer, I’m too much a rambler to ever take my writing seriously. Nope, the reason I read this was because I’m a geek who loves reading non-fiction written by writers I enjoy. Oh and I didn’t really read this, I read the first few chapters, listened to the audio version for the majority, and then went back and re-read some parts I thought were interesting. For me this book had a few moments that were kind of boring, but not boring enough to make me stop. It had lots of really cool anecdotes, as well as hints that are probably very helpful. And I have to say it was such an awesome audio book to listen to, King has a comfortable, conversational voice and it was really fun listening to him.
