A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

Genre: YA, comic book, science fiction
Rating:  4/5

Acquired: Bought new at my local comic book dealer.

Reason for Reading: Next issue.

This issue includes:

Judge Dredd: Payback 2 - The continuation and conclusion of last week's story where payback comes from two different sources and we're shown who it's OK to dole it out to.   4/5

Bob Byrne's Twisted Tales #15 - I do not do well with wordless comics and was reading this disturbing tale until I got to a point where I went "HUH?"  So I skipped ahead, figured out what was going on and came back and tried to figure the part where I got lost, sort of did, but I understood much better now and restarted from the beginning.  This is a weird and vicious tale. 4/5

Brass Sun: The Wheel of Worlds Pt. 3 by Ian Edington - Still loving this!  Natural continuations of the plot carry on at this point with the fate of the Bishop concluded and Wren giving herself away leading those looking right to her.  5/5

The ABC Warriors: Return to Earth - I'm finally getting a grip on this story.  The artwork goes to black and white as Hammerstein relates his story from the past of when he returned to earth and the political conniving that had summoned him there. Hammerstein has no great affection for Earth though and would rather stay with his brothers on Mars and we leave the story with him possibly changing his mind. 3.5/5

Grey Area: This Island Earth Pt. 3 - This is my favourite continuing story after only three consecutive reads.  While talking to the Ambassador, Buillet antagonizes him letting him know that if he wants to push the law, he, Buillet, is willing to push it right back at him.  This gets him flung out of a window with the flick of a finger but the Ambassador has shown his hand, shall we say, now.  5/5
