Busby's NCBD for May 15th, 2015 (Marvel Edition) #comicbooks #reviews #avengers

Typically, I don’t break my books down by publisher. This week, my books come from two sources, Image and Marvel. I’ve covered my Image titles in my last post. Now, let’s cover some of my Marvel titles. My least favorite title I collect is Bucky Barnes:…

Book Review: Breakdown, by Sara Paretsky #CrimeWriters #CrimeFiction #BookReviews

Breakdown, by Sara Paretsky. Signet Select; Penguin Books. 2012. $10. Ms. Paretsky’s books are not for juveniles. I mean, young adults could read them, and probably should read them, actually. They would have a wonderful role model for writing fiction,…

CSS Episode 9: The "Is It Christmas Yet?" Star-Wars Fanboy Edition @ImageComics #StarWars #BatmanvsSuperman @Daredevil
