Weekend Reads: Rockstars

Rockstars, Joe Harris & Megan Hutchinson Ever find yourself wondering that the lovechild of Almost Famous and The Exorcist would look like? If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say the answer is Joe Harris and Megan Hutchison’s ongoing series, Rockstars. I think it’s

Weekend Reads: Exit West

Exit West, Mohsin Hamid Every once in a while a book comes along that genuinely surprises you. For me, Mohsin Hamid’s new novel, Exit West, was exactly that book. For the better part of a week Exit West was practically glued to my hands. I wasn’t

Comic Book Wednesday: Doctor Aphra #1

Doctor Aphra #1, Kieron Gillen & Salvador Larroca As a HUGE fan of everything to do with Star Wars, it’s really hard for me not to love Doctor Aphra. Aphra’s back-stabbing, unethical, a bit violent, and an archeologist who’d give Indiana Jones a run for his

Weekend Reads: Loose Ends #1

Loose Ends #1, Jason Latour & Chris Brunner If you need more proof that Jason Latour is king when it comes to gritty, slow-cooked southern mysteries, then Loose Ends should be at the top of your pull list. Sure, many before Latour have tried to

Weekend Reads: Rumble, Vol. 3

Rumble Vol. 3, John Arcudi & James Harren I’ve said it before and I’ll say it here again: if you like comics (more specifically, comics with monsters in them) and you’re not reading Rumble,  you’re making a mistake. John Arcudi and James Harren are an
