    Herding Cats

    My Review: As mentioned in previous reviews, it’s hard to scroll through a social media feed without having seen at least one of Sarah’s Scribbles reblogged at some point. If you’ve read my previous reviews of Adulthood is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy Lump then you already know that I’m a fan of this comic series. Sarah’s Scribbles is a comic about one artist’s everyday struggles as an awkward and introverted millennial. I’ve always found the comics to be cute and extremely relatable so I’m usually quite happy to read them as they come up. Now, I will say that as a collection, Herding Cats was not the best.…

    Strange Planet

    My Review: I’m honestly so glad that Strange Planet has received a physical edition. The concept of aliens that try awkwardly to act like humans is a simple one but effective; so much of the everyday experience is captured in these short comics and is at once comical and relatable. These comics are instantly recognizable and very memorable. I see these little blue aliens literally everywhere and I’m always happy to see a new comic. They’ve even made their way to staff communication in my college to lift the spirits of my team, and it has honestly been effective. It is good wholesome fun and the aliens are so charming.…

    Killing Stalking

    My Thoughts This manhwa was like a car that was driving wildly out of control toward tragedy and I felt like a bystander that couldn’t look away. Killing Stalking is perhaps one of the best psychological horror-thriller series I have ever read that is really plotted well. The plot moves at a startling pace, like an engine on full throttle up to the very end and it is an incredibly thrilling ride. The main trio of characters⁠—Yoon Bum, Oh Sangwoo, and Yang Seungbae⁠—are all complex characters with strong moral grey areas in their personalities. I really enjoyed seeing each of these characters clash and unravel as the story goes deeper…

    Makeshift Miracle

    Rating Breakdown: Volume 1: ★★☆☆☆ Volume 2: ★★☆☆☆ My Review: This comic was a little bit difficult for me to decide what I thought about it. I was really digging the first few chapters and the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. I loved how the main characters were the only colored parts of the panel, it made for really striking visuals. As the first volume wore on, however, I started to wonder where the plot was going. There were characters introduced and a few events, but nothing of substance was really happening. There was a convenient amnesia plot which is a trope that I really dislike because the entire plot is…

    Little Moments of Love

    My Review: For those unfamiliar with Catana Comics, it’s a web comic about the artist and her relationship with her boyfriend. It’s another series that regularly makes its rounds on social media, which I imagine is where most people have seen it. To say that this comic is sweet is an understatement. It is 100% relationship cheese that will be either #couplegoals or gag-inducing depending on the audience. It’s clear that Catana and John are very much in love and they’re extremely cute together. The comics, like the art, are simple. The title pretty much sums up the entire series in general as each strip is like a small snippet…

    The Girl from Class

    My Thoughts I didn’t expect to get dragged so deep into this story. The Girl from Class caught my eye with its simple line art and minimal use of color. It’s a slice of life drama manhwa about a guy that gets a crush on a girl from his class. I wasn’t sure what kind of love story this would be when I started, but it was one that explores themes about the relationships that happen so naturally with life, we don’t even notice. “Don’t do this… to someone that you aren’t serious about.” The comic draws comparisons to the Greek tragedy of Orpheus, a brilliant musician that was loved…
