Manga Classics: Great Expectations

I have taken a break, not so much a break as being between more complicated books than usual, from writing reviews. I have one that I am enjoying ( especially since it's a new edition and I was the first to borrow it from the library so it feels like my own) which may result… Continue reading Manga Classics: Great Expectations

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card by CLAMP

When I was younger, I stayed up late ( by my standards) to watch the series in English. It was my first brush with anime related shows. My sister carried on from there though and became the ardent follower she is now. I therefore have the background information to enjoy the adventures that the characters… Continue reading Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card by CLAMP

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 15: 1979-1980

I am currently on a Peanuts binge and will probably be reading all the (17,897) panels in due course, thanks to the complete collections volumes available at my local library. Considering the content, it would not make sense to write a separate review for each of the collections, because they are bound to contain pretty… Continue reading The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 15: 1979-1980

I’m Not Your Sweet Babboo! by Charles M. Schulz

I am making my foray into books designed specifically for children with this book. I state this upfront solely because I know of multiple Peanuts panels which might apply more to the mind of an adult than to children. This book is not a collection of those panels. These are simple, upfront and mildly thought-provoking… Continue reading I’m Not Your Sweet Babboo! by Charles M. Schulz

Zen Pencils–Creative Struggle- by Gavin Aung Than

I have been a follower of the Zen Pencils' Facebook page for a while now. But I joined the bandwagon a little late because the number of new quotes coming out by then was rare. I mention this as a prior, since I am already conditioned to enjoy the book, I definitely enjoyed it. There… Continue reading Zen Pencils–Creative Struggle- by Gavin Aung Than

Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe adapted by Stacy King

This book was downloaded via NetGalley during a comic/graphic novel binge that I was on.I had a digest book with these stories when I was younger, which lay forgotten at the back of my mind till I started on this Graphic novel. The stories are deep and dark by themselves and the graphics add to… Continue reading Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe adapted by Stacy King

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 2: 1953-1954 by Charles M. Schulz

While looking through a completely new aisle at the local library, I stumbled onto a complete collection of Peanuts!. As previously mentioned in another review I was an obsessive comic strip collector and somehow I never managed to get hooked to Peanuts as I did with Calvin and Hobbes. But with time and more insights… Continue reading The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 2: 1953-1954 by Charles M. Schulz
