Lying Cat + Soviet Superman; Comics I Read Recently

My comic-to-be-read pile is huge! Last weekend I went to a convention where I bought numerous comics and graphic novels and today I went shopping and picked up DC’s Rebirth: Red Hood & the Outlaws Vol. 1 because I’m considering cosplaying Red Hood in the future. In recent days I have finished a couple of series and I wanted to share one gigantic post with all the comics I read.

Saga Volume #1: Saga was a comic book series that everyone was raving about. I felt like I was out of the loop so I purchased the first volume and I liked it. I like Lying Cat, I want one as a pet. The relationship between the two main characters is told extremely well. I liked Saga, I wish I read this earlier. I rated Saga four stars on Goodreads.

Nailbiter Volume #2:  Nailbiter Volume #1 was my favorite series I read last year so I had extremely high hopes. Sadly, I felt a little letdown. I felt like I read the trade paperback and nothing really happened. It seemed a lot of the stories were more filler information about the town than anything else. However, the ending did leave me wanting to keep reading on to the third volume so I’m hoping this is just a slump in the series. I rated Nailbiter three stars on Goodreads.

Superman Red Son: This graphic novel presents an interesting dilemma; what if Superman crash landed in Russia versus the United States? Obviously, Superman would still fight for his country and his people, but now it’s on the side of Communism versus Capitalism. I liked how each of the DC characters was brought into the story including Batman as an anarchist to Superman’s reign. This was an interesting read, but not my favorite title I read this year. My boyfriend loves Superman and probably enjoyed this more than I did. I rated this three stars on Goodreads.

Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur Volume #1. Three quick words to sum up Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur would be: adorable, heartwarming, and charming. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur establish this strong partnership right off the bat and seeing Devil Dinosaur’s facial expressions make me laugh. Moon Girl is a great comic to introduce to younger girls. I want to save this for my future daughter. I rated Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur five stars on Goodreads.

Snotgirl #1: I was unsure of this series, so I only purchased the first issue. I thought it was okay, but it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be. I eventually will read the first trade paperback, but not for a while.

This has saved me a lot of time to consolidate this into one post versus writing several in a row. If you don’t follow me on Goodreads, you should >>>> Bizarre Brunette’s Bookshelves!

  1. I love Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur! I wish there had been a comic like that when I was a kid. Having a dinosaur BFF would have been a dream come true so I know I would have adored it!


  2. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is so wonderful!!! Snotgirl is….weird. I would agree, going by the first issue I wasn’t too impressed. Luckily, my partner got me the trade so I could continue. It gets better, but it does take awhile. Honestly, until the last two issues in the trade, I was kind of ‘meh’ about the whole thing, but then it got interesting and now I really want to see where it goes! So maybe worth continuing?


  3. I love Moon Girl & Devil Dino! 😀 😀 😀 As for Superman Red Son… hmmmmm it’s good but not super (also because I’m biased and not really a DC Fan… so… 😮 )
