Manga Review: Detective Conan Vol. 43

Posted on September 28, 2015 By

Going to sporting events in the Detective Conan universe is dangerous.

So. Many. Comics.

This weekend is Baltimore Comic Con! I will try to write something up each day if I’m able, but I can’t promise anything. Those of you who’ve been or have friends who’ve gone to a convention can attest to how tough finding time can be sometimes, considering its sort of like a vacation.   Though…

Posted on September 21, 2015 By

Novel Review: Hero

Posted on September 16, 2015 By

Hero is the second book in the Woodcutter Sisters series, and where the first followed Sunday, this one followed Saturday (and as the next book stars Friday, so I guess we’re going backward along the days of the week?) who’s off on her heroic journey.   And like the first book, I liked it okay,…
