Black is the story that your oppressors don’t want you to hear. It’s the story of what life would be like if only Black people had superpowers.
Kareem is thrust into this super powered world after being shot multiple times and running out of the ambulance. He is then found by people who train him to harness his abilities. All the while, the U.S. government is determined to find Kareem and take him down.
I have five books I’ll be trying to get through this month. There are no guarantees, now that I’m a college student, studying between blogging breaks.
A wonderful collection of comics by the darling Catana Chetwynd, showcasing the quirky side of love. Whether you fully relate, or are still waiting on that special someone to enter your life, giggles can be let loose throughout this collection.
I first read Chetwynd’s comics on social media sites like Instagram about a year ago, so when I saw she was getting published, I just had to check it out. I got this as an ARC through Netgalley.com and the publication date is June 19, 2018.
I feel like this would be great to flip through with a significant other, snuggled up on the couch. Or, it can be read alone. Even if you don’t relate to everything, it’s still a fun and silly book and a great way to pass time.
This is a collection of comics about a strange world, not unlike our own. Despite the ghosts, talking animals, and “the general absence of any coherent laws of nature,” the stories are ones we can relate to and understand, after all, that is the original goal.
I finished this collection of comics in a single sitting but one can really stop and come back at any point. The book is divided into five sections: The Human Experience, Social Creatures, Changes, A Strange World, and Thoughts on Things. Some comics hit close to home and really made me think, while others just left me giggling. Reza Farazmand’s hyper self-aware sense of humor is an acquired taste, but one I quite enjoy.
I read this as an ARC through NetGalley.com. The expected release date is October 24, 2017. Comics for a Strange World can be preordered here:
I’ve seen these comics around Instagram for quite a while now. They’ve helped me chuckle through dull days, so when I saw the full book was a Netgalley ARC, I just had to read it.
I flew through this in a single day and I really enjoyed the comics. Brian Gordon uses his own experiences as a father in writing these adorable comics. His children are played by the adorable pink and yellow ducklings.
This series is great for both parents and the everyday adult. I really enjoyed reading it. It’s cute, it’s funny, and it’s a breeze to get through.
The expected publications date is October 10th, 2017. Pre-orders are available on Amazon:
