Y: The Last Man, Issues 1 & 2

Recently, I became a contributing writer for, a blog for geeky women (and the men who love them). As I have read every single issue of the Brian K.

Issue 1

Issue 2

Y: The Last Man - Good Times!

Explaining the Hiatus...

It's been a while. And I haven't written, not because I haven't been reading, but because I went to France and since then have been reading up a storm without having the discipline to write about it. :) I'm hoping to remedy that. The next several reviews will not have the "Currently reading/Next up" format. That will return when I'm caught up....whenever that is.

Coming soon (certainly not in the order that I read them, as I barely remember anymore), my reviews for:
