Ms. Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson
Ms. Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why

P.M. Bradshaw, May 5, 2015

The further adventures of teenage Ms. Marvel, coming to grips with her new powers. Not as good as Volume 1, and a little preachy in its expository conversations, but still a fun graphic novel. I’m not sure why the bird-headed clone of Thomas Edison is evil, but the ride is still worth taking.

The Damned Volume 1: Three Days Dead by Cullen Bunn
The Damned Volume 1: Three Days Dead

P.M. Bradshaw, April 23, 2015

The Damned is a great piece of Demon-Noir if ever there was one. Dare I say it is better than Ed Brubaker’s somewhat similar Fatale series. This succeeds where the other ��" maybe not failed but meandered ��" in its conciseness. It sets up a universe, sets up a story, and sticks to it, singularly, till the end.

The story, by Cullen Bunn, is well told, though maybe a touch heavy on the noir slang. But with prohibition-era demon mobsters jockeying for control, you can’t really go wrong. The artwork by Brian Hurtt is phenomenal, both illustrating and pacing out the story nicely. I would love to see a second volume from this team.

Advice to Writers: A Compendium of Quotes, Anecdotes, and Writerly Wisdom from a Dazzling Array Of Literary Lights

P.M. Bradshaw, April 15, 2015

A great gift for the writer or English major in your life. A wonderful little book of quotes on everything about writing, from Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner, Henry Miller, T.S. Eliot, and more. Some are very funny. Others are thought-provoking. A fun read!

Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You about Being Creative by Austin Kleon
Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You about Being Creative

P.M. Bradshaw, March 3, 2015

Steal Like An Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative is a wonderful little book. Filled with fun little tidbits, insight and joy, this is a great little book for the artist or creative person in your household. The fact that it can be read in a single sitting makes all the more fun, and more likely that it’ll be read over and over again.

Death of Wolverine by Charles Soule
Death of Wolverine

P.M. Bradshaw, February 26, 2015

Death is comics is redundant. Except for Captain Marvel (Mar-vell), I can’t think of one character that’s been knocked off that hasn’t eventually been brought back. Captain America and Spider-Man were both killed and brought back recently. Why? We KNOW characters that big aren’t going to stay dead when they can be selling comics! So It was with not a small amount of trepidation that I read Death of Wolverine. I’m not totally convinced how they killed him was the best way (I’m still mad at Captain Kirk falling down and dying on some rocks), but the book overall was very good. Good characterization, good plotting, good artwork. A good story you’ll be glad you’ve read.

At least until they bring him back to life in a year or so.
